From the late 1950s through the 1960s, the same cars that drove people to work and the grocery store were actively raced on Sundays at drag strips all across the country. This was the exciting time when the factories of Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors competed against each other under the slogan, "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday." Author Larry Davis experienced the period firsthand from the driver's seat, as he competed in various Stock and Super Stock categories between 1960 and 1970. Read this completely illustrated, year-by-year history of Super Stock racing from 1955 to 1968, including first-person accounts of action from match races to the Nationals, and appendices featuring all major event winners, NHRA rules, and the engine/chassis combinations.
