Sequel to popular Lost Drag Strips to be released

FOREST LAKE, Minn.—Fresh on the heels of the best-selling book Lost Drag Strips comes a new look at other long-lost and forgotten drag racing facilities from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. In the first volume, the author examined the birth of drag racing and its subsequent popularity that invaded every city and community across America. The first volume was great, but readers demanded more! Lost Drag Strips II picks up where the first volume left off, covering even more tracks with archival photos of racing in the tracks’ heyday, the cars that ran there, and coverage of the tracks as they exist today. This volume also includes some of the tracks that survived, those that fought off the economic demons and the urban sprawl and continue to run today. Tracks in this volume include: Fort Wainwright/Racing Lions Motorsports Park, Avenue G Drag Strip, Fremont/ Baylands Drag Strip, San Fernando Drag Strip, Fontana Drag City, Inyokern Drag Strip, Kahuku Air Strip, Las Vegas Speedrome, Continental Divide Raceways, SRCA Drag Strip, Southwest Raceway, Willow Run Raceway, Minnesota Dragways, KCTA Drag Strip, Detroit Dragway, Niagara Airport Dragstrip, New York National Speedway, York US 30 Drag-O-Way, South Mountain Raceway, State Capitol Dragway, La Place Dragway, Yellow River Drag Strip, Thunderbolt Dragway, and more.  Scotty Gosson worked his way from wrecking yards to rod and custom shops as a mechanic and fabricator. His involvement in drag racing and landspeed racing led to a successful career in the print industry, where he is a popular magazine feature freelancer. His work has appeared in Drag Racing USA, Hot Rod, Car Craft, Rod & Custom, Hot Rod Deluxe, and Goodguys Gazette. Other CarTech books by Scotty Gosson include America’s Coolest Station Wagons; Rat Rods–Rodding’s Imperfect Stepchildren; and America’s Wildest Show Rods of the 1960s & 1970s. The 8.5 x 11” paperback (ISBN: 978-1-61325-223-9) features 176 pages packed with 249 photos.
