If you are interested in a deep dive into drag racing history, you aren't going to find anything better that Robert C Post's High Performance, 2nd Edition.

I have the one about WJ, one about Snake, and one about Linda Vaughn. All were really good reading and interesting, as it was from their perspectives.

I'd love to see the remaining old timers write one too, like the Greek, Bernstein, Jim Dunn, Connie Kalitta, Big Daddy, Austin Coil, etc. Think of the stories and history they could tell! I'd buy every one of them.

Spoke with Elena Scherr who co-wrote Snake's book some time ago and with the encouragement from Don, she was wanting to do a book on Roland Leong. Only she was having trouble with Roland opening up about his personal life and if you know him, he is very private and reserved.

But he does have a Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_Leong

Got this book when first came out! Outstanding! So much information from the beginning I wish there could be a follow up to present time with as much detail as this master piece did!
