In the 1990s, the PPG CART IndyCar World Series drew more fans per event than the NASCAR Cup Series, and it also started to rival Formula 1 on a world stage. PacWest Racing entered the arena at the height of the CART era to take on stout competition from Team Penske, Chip Ganassi Racing and Newman/Haas Racing. Bruce McCaw and his partners encountered challenges they didn’t expect, yet PacWest developed into a race-winning team within four years. Established as a frontrunner and expected to contend for championships, PacWest instead became a case study in how quickly fortunes can change in an industry that never sits still.
Compiled by team member John Oreovicz, Time Flies is an inside account of PacWest’s eight-year run in the CART series. The book documents the highs and the lows the team experienced and spotlights the people who created a successful and close-knit organization. PacWest launched the career of champion Indy car driver Scott Dixon, along with many others who continue to play important behind-the-scenes roles in Indy cars and other forms of auto racing. In Time Flies, their stories are brought to life.
"Time flies when you’re having fun. This book is fun, but more importantly a really solid review of Indy Car racing at its peak." -speedreaders.info
