By Bob Birmingham
Foreword by Bill Wuesthoff
Carefully compiled by sports car racing aficionado and former DRIFT editor Robert Birmingham of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Mis-Shifting provides personal stories, photographs, and an insider’s view of exciting Midwestern sports car events, drivers of great stature, and other motorsports personalities. Emphasis centers mostly on the 1950s and ’60s. You will find brief biographies and other stories on championship race drivers such as Jim Jeffords, Bill Wuesthoff, Augie Pabst, Harry Heuer, and many others, as well as internationally acclaimed industrial designer and creator of the fabulous Excalibur automobile, Brooks Stevens, collector Dave Uihlein, Road America’s Clif Tufte, and dozens of others.
Contained within are more than 150 photographs, most never before published, all tied to the historic early years of road racing in and around the Midwest. It will bring back fond memories to those of that era who remain, and perhaps more importantly, recounts colorful personal stories for younger fans.
