This book was published in 1979, some of the info is still applicable today, except for cars with wings in that case the set up technology is different. But, for those who think sprint car racing is "go karts going in circles on dirt", there's much more to it than that. Here are a couple pages from this book showing the theory that goes into sprint car racing.
