Book Report — Proving Ground: A History of Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth Racing

Looking to get an auto enthusiast an excellent gift for the holidays? Then you’ll want to pick up a copy of Jim Schild’s latest book, and one for yourself.



Proving Ground: A History of Dodge, Chrysler and Plymouth Racing

Author: Jim Schild

From the early decades of the Indy 500 to the modern superspeedways of NASCAR, from the 24 Hours of Le Mans sports car race to drag racing’s 4.5-second quarter-mile runs, this is the story of one company’s pursuit of performance and the glory that came with it.

In this hardbound, heritage-rich book that’s full of hundreds of color and black and white photos, you’ll hear tales of the Hemi, the Superbird, Don Garlits, Richard Petty and many other legends.

Noted author and Chrysler enthusiast Jim Schild tells the whole MOPAR story, from door-banging Trans Am racing, to land speed records on the salt flats of Bonneville, from the legendary C-300 to the road-shredding Dodge Viper.

Full of fascinating history and excitement, this book from Motorbooks is a must-have for all fans of Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth.











This 192-page book also makes an excellent holiday present to any auto enthusiast, auto hisorian or even your favorite automotive instructor. With availability from Motorbooks, it usually ships within 24 hours.


My copy is proudly displayed in my tech library just outside my office. Iv’e found it to be a great reference piece, as well as a source of Chrysler, Mopar and Dodge trivia!
