Does anyone know of a book that really covers racing from the Beginning of racing in this country till 1955 when AAA left the sport?

The only thing I know that comes close is the "AAA Official Record Book 1909-1950" pulbished by Floyd Clymer.

Look for copies on abebooks or EBay

Gordon Eliot White has AAA Contest Board Files on microfilm; his website is http://www.crosslink.net/~gewhite/micro.htm

To those that may be interested in AAA Championship history:

Try the following threads on the Forums.Autosport database, "nostalgia forum": 1. THE YEARS 1894 TO 1897; 2. AMERICAN RACING 1894 TO 1920; 3. THE FIRST 500; 4. AMERICAN RACING: THE GOLDEN AGE; 5. FRANK LOCKHART; 6. INDIANAPOLIS JUNK FORMULA; 7. LOUIS MEYER; 8. 1934 AAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP; 9. 1946 AAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP; 10. 1947 AAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP; 11. 1948 AAA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP; and 12. YOUR EARLIST INDY 500 MEMORIES (post of 1/16/2009 here which covers in brief 1946 to 1955). All these taken in consecutive order will certainly, I think, furnish anyone with a good, accurate, and general overall view of AAA racing 1902 to 1955.

Give it a try. Sincerely, J.G. Printz

Just in case someone is interested in obtaining a copy of the 1951 publication "AAA Official Record Book" by Floyd Clymer, I just listed one on eBay at this link:
