Ref. Editor

Author: Gordon Eliot White
Americans have raced on more than 6,000 racetracks, road courses and drag strips, at home and abroad, since an American Duryea and a German Benz met in the snow in Chicago in 1895. A few more than 1,200 still exist or are still used today. The rest have disappeared under shopping centers, airports and housing developments - or simply into the mists of time.



Included here are the best remembered, the most important and the most interesting of those tracks, along with some that are remembered only by local historians.

Come along for the ride and rediscover the heritage of automobile racing.

The author, Gordon E. White, has been a racing fan, reporter, crewmember, driver, owner and historian for sixty years. He was a legman for racing broadcaster Ted Webbe in the 1940s and contributed to Illustrated Speedway News and worked as a crewmember for his neighbor, Bill Schindler.

White spent a career as a journalist. He has won numerous journalism awards and was twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Since he retired from newspaper work in 1988, White has served as Auto Racing Advisor at the Smithsonian Institutes National Museum of American History, where he has collected several important racing vehicles including the 1929 Miller supercharged front-drive Indianapolis car of Leon Duray.
