for indy fans old and new.

Well, well, well. Look what we have here. A book on racing that WON'T bore you to tears courtesy of Jade Gurss titled Beast: The Top Secret Illmor-Penske Engine that Shocked the Racing World at the Indy 500.

Most books on racing, I've noticed, are heavy on the facts and light on the narrative aspect. Gurss has done Beast a bit differently mixing important facts into a narrative about one of the greatest achievements in Indianapolis 500 history. And he draws readers in deeper with each page. I don't know how this guy does it, but Gurss has managed to create a read about an ENGINE that is both gripping and engaging, says everyone who's read it.
