Synopsis

A.J.Foyt by Josh Wilker, G.S. Prentzas

As the son of an automechanic, racing great A.J. Foyt grew up in the world of fast cars. Foyt dropped out of high school in order to pursue his passion for auto racing full time. It was a risky gamble, but it paid off: through hard work and determination, he eventually became the only driver to race in the Indianapolis 500 for 35 consecutive years, with a total of four wins. From driving midget cars to winning championship races, this inspiring new full-color new biography is the compelling story of how one man's dream of race-car stardom became a reality.
