Mickey Thompson by Eric Arenson

Book Description

Mickey Thompson was a legend in the motoracing world, with over 395 separate speed records to his name, either as racing driver or as car builder. The violent gunning-down of him and his wife Trudi in their driveway heralded the start of a major, complex, high-profile criminal investigation. Starting with Thompson's early years, author Arneson gives a detailed biography of this talented man - speed racer, car builder, a man who worked for nearly every racer in the US, and who became renowned for his off-road and tire and racing equipment as much as for the cars he built or raced.From the 1950's adventures in Carrera Panamerica to Thompson's Challenger run at Bonneville, the famed Indy 500 entries, creation of a popular off-road racing series, to one of the most sensational murder cases to rock the world of motorsports, Arenson traces the tragedy to it's beginnings in the partnership between Thompson and supercross racing series founder Mike Goodwin, and moves from the adrenalin-charged world of international racing to the processes of the California criminal court in a detailed examination, appealing to motorsport and true-crime fans alike.
