The full story of the brilliant but tortured Troy Ruttman, one of the most successful, versatile, accomplished drivers in the history of American
auto racing, who soared despite the demons of alcoholism, injury and loss.
At 15 years old, Troy started racing at Ash Kan in California and he won his first race; as a teenager, he conquered the Hills of the Midwest; and he climbed to the top of the mountain by winning the 1952 Indianapolis 500 at 22 years old.
His real success was his ability to apply the never give up attitude from the race track to life.
Hard cover, 248 pages, B&W photos from the Ruttman Family Collection.
