Every great endeavor has a father, a key individual who possesses the tools necessary to advance the cause. For the hobby of hot rodding and later the sport of championship drag racing, that man was Wally Parks. From his formation of the National Hot Rod Association in 1951 to his passing in 2007, Parks gave his all to the sport he loved. Today, the 330-mph spectacle known as the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series is his legacy.
First created by NHRA as an insert to National DRAGSTER and reproduced here with additional rare historical photographs, Wally Parks, Hot Rodding’s Hero features interviews with Parks himself and is an inspiring must-read for race fans of all ages. Hardcover; 44 pages; 60 photos. Also available in softcover.
