Since winning her first race a little more than a year earlier, the unbeaten, unflappable Ruffian had literally raced her way into the hearts of a nation. One of those hearts belonged to Newsday turf reporter William Nack.

The Race Track

Asserting that color-bound problems cannot be remedied with colorblind solutions, this courageous new work lays out what the full range of responses must be if we are truly interested in achieving justice for all people.

Written by a trio of celebrated scholars, The Race Track is a twenty-first-century road map to how race operates in America today. From its covert and psychological dimensions to how race plays a key role in allocating assets to some while denying them to others and a “whiteness protection program” that keeps race-based advantages intact, this landmark new book challenges some of society’s most cherished notions— about merit, markets, and choice, and about the causes and consequences of unequal racial outcomes. As leaders of a cutting-edge think-tank, the authors have crafted an essential guide to contemporary racism based on years of looking beyond the ivory tower and talking to ordinary people from all walks of life. Amid all the “post-racial” rhetoric, The Race Track boldly claims that it is not racist to talk about race while structural racism is alive and well. Asserting that color-bound problems cannot be remedied with colorblind solutions, this courageous new work lays out what the full range of responses must be if we are truly interested in achieving justice for all people.

Race Track: The Blind Spot of Privilege uses an engaging parable within a sports arena to examine the dynamics of institutional racism and the logical and moral basis of affirmative action. When a talented high school athlete discovers that his inability to compete in certain track & field events traces to a glaring flaw in the system, he devises a mechanism to address the problem - only to come up against a sports world firmly entrenched in tradition and fiercely resistant to change. As he persists in his struggle, he discovers the fulfillment of standing up for equality - and, years later, discovers a new application for that urge within him.

Dirt Track Auto Racing 1919 1941

Prior to World War I, auto racing featured expensive machines and teams financed by auto factories. The teams toured the country, and most of the races were held in large cities, so the vast majority of Americans never saw a race. All this changed after World War I, though, and in the 1920s and 1930s there were approximately 1,000 dirt tracks in the United States and Canada. The dirt tracks offered small-time racing—little prize money and minimal publicity—but people loved it. This pictorial history documents dirt track racing, with what are today called sprint cars, around the United States from 1919 to 1941. Information on dirt track racing in Canada during this time is also provided. Regionally divided chapters detail the drivers, tracks, and specific races of each area of the country. Some of the drivers went on to win fame and fortune while others faded into obscurity. Tracks included well known facilities as well as out-of-the-way sites few people had ever heard of. The cars ranged from state of the art machines to the more common home built specials based on Model T or Model A Ford parts. Taken together, the drivers, tracks, and races of this era were instrumental in making auto racing the popular sport it is today.
