Runways and Racers focuses on the various aspects that contributed to sports car races being held at military installations throughout America in the early 1950s. It was a marriage of convenience for the Sports Car Club of America and the Strategic Air Command, with both parties gaining advantages from the arrangement as well as providing contributions towards it. The thorn in the side turned out to be a Congressman whose own aspirations exceeded his standing, but who found himself in a position to be able to influence the outcome of events.
"I wholeheartedly recommend Terry O'Neil's Runways & Racers: Sports Car Races held on Military Airfields in America 1952-1954. It's lovingly written passages, perfectly curated photography, and well researched results tables make it a brilliant read and I find myself returning to it again and again." - The Chicane
