Description

An all-access pass to Pit Row and beyond at the world’s most famous auto race, the Indianapolis 500

The Indianapolis 500 auto race is the most prestigious event in all of motor sports. Race cars roar two hundred times around the track at dizzying speeds of more than two hundred miles per hour in front of a massive crowd—and millions more watching on television. Every spring, drivers, teams, sponsors, and pit crews all come together to make auto-racing history. Since the inaugural race in 1911, the Indy 500 has become one of the most popular sporting events in the world.

Award-winning reporter Sonny Kleinfield takes readers inside the world of high-risk, high-speed open-wheel racing. A Month at the Brickyard follows the day-to-day race prep of Indy up-and-comer Johnny Parsons and team, showing the endless fine-tuning and customization up to the big day, as well as capturing the personalities and stories that surround the speedway. With Kleinfield at the wheel, there is much more to racing than just the roar of the engines.
