New Book a Trip Down Memory Lane in Delaware

Father and son team up on pictorial history of auto racing in the state of Delaware.

 
PRLog - Feb. 7, 2012 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s Images of Sports series is Delaware Auto Racing from father and son team Wayne and Chad Culver, with a foreword by track announcer Charlie Brown. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days at the track.

The First State of Delaware has a legendary history of automobile racing. Since the first racers roared down the dusty Delaware State Fairgrounds track in 1915 at Wawaset Park, Wilmington, DE, auto racing has thrilled capacity crowds all over the state.

Delaware Auto Racing documents and explores the tracks, cars, and people that made racing what it is today. The history of racing can be seen in historic photographs from the legendary dirt tracks, like Delmar and Georgetown Speedways, to the high banked turns of Delaware’s NASCAR track—Dover Downs.

Rare images have been collected from drivers, car owners, fans, and historians to provide an insightful look into auto racing in Delaware. Many of the historic photographs have never been published.

Father-and-son team Wayne and Chad Culver are lifelong racing enthusiasts and collectors. Wayne Culver is a retired Delaware native whose love of racing began as a child growing up in the shadow of the many dirt tracks in Sussex County. This enthusiasm has been passed down to his son. Chad Culver is a teacher and collector of vintage race cars and memorabilia.
