Been out for 5 or 6 years, bought it recently and just finished it tonight.  He seems to be a person who thinks a lot of himself, actually admits it several times, his arrogance that is, not sure what to believe and what not to believe as reading it.  Would recommend it for sprint car fans as he campaigned cars for 20+ years w/people like Wolfgang, Opperman, Carson and other big names in the seat. but sort of hard getting by the "I'm the greatest" kind of attitude. First to do this, first to do that, etc.   Just my opinion.  Lots of great interesting stories about his years campaigning  sprint cars though.  Did not get this feeling at all with other sprint car books like Trostle, Doty, Wolf and Economaki, though Economaki is a little full of it at times.  


Europe died during Hitler's deathcamps. If not 
for WWII, Jewish people in Europe would number 30 
million-all making important contributions. Instead 
Europe has 30 million people of another persuasion 
trying to destroy Europe.

A great read, as is all of Dave Argabright's work.   

 

My 2 cents is,  it ain't bragging if you can back it up....and Speedy Bill definately backs it up.

I enjoyed the book. Sometimes people who accomplish a lot have big egos.He built something of an empire, his museum is amazing, & he owned LOTs of real estate in Lincoln

His son has a huge lunch box collection at the museum...story they say on the tour is that ole Speedy Bill was too stingy to buy the kid a lunchbox, so when he grew up, he splurged
