LONG RIDE ON A SHORT TRACK by Ken Spooner REVIEWS This is a fantastic book, the pictures alone are worth the purchase price then add to that the history it covers and you have the definitive book on the early days of stock car racing on the east coast. I lived on Long Island during that era and went to many of the tracks mentioned and knew some of the drivers which made the book even more enjoyable. This author is noted for his thoroughness and accuracy. Phil Van Tassel Oct 18, 2013

Axel Anderson # 15
Published on Dec 16, 2013
In 1988 I wrote the song “AXEL” about racing driver Axel Anderson who I first saw drive on Riverhead Raceway when I was a kid. It was guys like him that inspired kids like me to become drivers too. In 1993 Axel & I started talking about his story and that of the drivers he ran with. That led to my first book “LONG RIDE ON A SHORT TRACK” Now in its second edition.
