The Last Amateurs

Back in the DazeThe Last Amateurs is a creative non-fiction book about the life of one amateur road racer trying to make it from a local racer to national significance. Based on road racing on the east coast in the 90s it chronicles the work it takes for one racer to make it largely on his own, with the help of family and friends and a mentor who he grows to depend on.

The Last Amateurs takes the reader to famous tracks, through the cost in relationships, money, lifetime and the burden of the desire to compete.  It also offers the reader a chance to understand how commitment and work it takes behind the scenes to race competitively.  Facing death as a possible outcome of speed and the desire to win, the sport also saves the racer’s life.
