A history teacher? Bless you, sir (or madam). My favorite subject, but I lacked the will and the patience to teach.

Seems as if our major sources of history are contained in our collective memory. Much of what was written is lost to the ages.

I'd love to see a book about the sprint car/California/Indiana connection. That would cover close to 80 years of racing history.

The Indianapolis Speedrome has a history section of all the USAC winners and some 2nd and 3rd place results on their web sight. Funny but I just happen to find that last week. A lot of winners there that I forgot about. Even figure 8 champ Wayne Arnold won 3 features.
