Book Signing | Chad Culver
Welcome to a fast-paced thrill ride into Delaware’s rich racing history. The earliest drivers raced on dusty tracks carved into a farmer’s field. Early characters like Johnny Martin and Paul Walker helped establish racing in Delaware shortly after World War II. The latest generation races at the famed Georgetown Speedway and Delaware International Speedway, and drivers, owners and promoters like Ricky Elliot, Curt Michael and Brett Deyo make racing the thriving sport it is today. Through interviews and extensive research, author Chad Wayne Culver has captured the stories of some of Delaware’s best-known racing legends.
