Happy America day. To celebrate, I’ve lined up three book reviews today that celebrate the speed, ingenuity, and forward-thinking ways that used to typify the American automotive and racing industries. There was at time when we could proudly stand as a nation and see our drivers, cars, and teams taking on the best that the world could throw at us. There’s a bit of that remaining today, but certainly nothing like it was in the 60s and 70s. Racetracks the world over were dominated by our best cars, and driven by our most prolific drivers. This is the third of today’s books. In his day, George Follmer was one of the best racing drivers around, getting behind the wheel of anything anyone would let him drive. This book, published in just the last couple of years, “American Wheelman” by Tom Madigan, covers the life and times of Mr. Follmer, an American legend who was fast in anything on four wheels. Is this book worth putting on your bookshelf?
