Asking for help to add to my library.
I'm interested in learning more about racing in America between the wars, particularly the 1930s. and immediately after WWII. There's plenty of literature out there on the Golden Age of the '20s, but I'm not sure what's out there that provides a solid history of American racing during and after the Depression and on through WWII. I'm especially interested in what would have been available for racers trying to make a living at it, whether in non-AAA "big car" programs, sprint cars, and such, but also if other genres, such as sports cars, were starting take hold during that time.
So, what books are available that best tell those stories? I've read that the Rex Mays bio "Pole Position" goes into the state of racing in general during Mays' time but I haven't had access to a copy to be able to page through it. Is it a possibility, or are there better recommendations? Lotsa photos are good, too.
Thanks for the help. I know it's maybe a bit of a nebulous request, so I appreciate whatever directions in which I can be pointed.
