Winning A Race Drivers Handbook.

Jordan L. Anderson (born April 15, 1991) is an American professional stock car racing driver and team owner. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, driving the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado for Jordan Anderson Racing. Anderson began racing in karts as an eight-year-old. He raced in Legends and Late model cars as his career developed.

Great book which covers some things not covered in others. com User, May 8, 2002. Such as what to expect at an SCCA event as far as tech inspections, and equipment checks, and what not. It also provides several different viewpoints from different drivers. It, at times, is almost like sitting around the table with the guys, and discussing racing. It IS a little lite on content in some places.

HOT LAPS AROUND AMERICA'S RACETRACKS
  • this book covers a lot of ground. as entry level auto racing has changed over the years the hunt for a good line has not. the book covers some of the skills needed to find that line.

  • This book is among the many excellent books on racing or otherwise driving on the track.

    The feature of this book which stands out is that there are commentaries from guest authors throughout the book, and they reveal that even very experienced people can sharply disagree even on points which are seemingly straightforward. That illustrates that when you're dealing with a driver, car, and track all interacting with each other, with other cars/drivers also added to the mix, you're dealing with a complex system, so the best/fastest way to do things isn't always easy to figure out, and instead much judgment is needed - but that's part of the fun!

    I've deducted a star only because the book is now 20 years old and some updating is warranted, though the vast majority of the book's content is still entirely valid today, so I do recommend this book to anyone interested in driving on the track.

  • Author here. I just came across Josh Allen's comments. I think he's probably a little light on experience if he thinks spins will end him up in the hospital or wrecking yard, but he's clearly entitled to his opinion.
    Fortunately, Amazon now has the book on line so you can look for yourself. Check page 63 for the bigger picture where Carroll was chewing on Bertil. You might also browse a few pages beginning at 49. (Search on "weight is transferred") We all had a lot of fun with the back-and-forth stuff and nobody was mad at anybody.
    Regarding the glossary, everone's sense of humor is different! Search on "glossary" and see what you think. BTW the publisher sort of crammed the glossary into spaces between the "Hot Laps" so it's a little hard to follow. Sorry 'bout that. Not my decision.
    Don't forget the basics: (1) On the black part. (2) Rubber side down. (3) Have fun!

  • This book provides almost all of the information needed to get started in racing. The best part of the text is that it covers all of the bases. There are many other books that cover each of these subjects in detail, but Anderson does a great job of bringing many subjects together into one concise work.

  • Such as what to expect at an SCCA event as far as tech inspections, and equipment checks, and what not. It also provides several different viewpoints from different drivers. It, at times, is almost like sitting around the table with the guys, and discussing racing.
    It IS a little lite on content in some places. Speed Secrets is as good if not better for the beginner, along with Going Faster! For more in-depth coverage of the topics.

  • WINNING offered a comprehensive look at what you need to know if you're planning to start racing. I Really enjoyed Anderson's approach to the sport as well as his writing style. The information was presented in a very no nonsense way, but was still accessible to a novice. Plus, Anderson's humor makes for a fun read!

    I Would like to see a second edition!

  • I've read most (ok many) of the celebrity driver books, Carroll Smith's must read series, and years worth of motorsports magazines. George Anderson's "Winning" is far and away the best overview for the beginning racer, with plenty, I suspect, to teach the experienced driver. Full of pragmatic advice, useful examples, and concise illustrations/diagrams. The book to buy if you are only buying one book on racing, the first book to read if you are reading many books on racing.
