If you’re interested in learning more about dirt track racing and motorsports careers, reading books about the industry is a good way to gain technical insights, from racing basics to advanced information, and big picture information on how different racecars work. Reading racing books is an especially smart way to use your offseason time to widen your motorsports education if you can’t get into a garage and tear some equipment apart yourself. Dirt Track Chassis and Suspension

One of the books we’ve turned to over and over again throughout the years is Dirt Track Chassis and Suspension by the editors of Circle Track Magazine. Dirt Track Chassis and Suspension isn’t your typical textbook-style read: it’s actually a compilation of magazine articles that discuss the basics of dirt track chassis theory and design, setups, tuning and driving. While the book is geared mainly towards e-mods, modifieds, and late models, there is information about sprint car chassis’ as well.

Even though a lot of the information is geared towards one type of racing, Dirt Track Chassis and Suspension is designed to provide an overall feel for the technology that you could apply to any dirt race car. Like courses you’d take at a racing school or in a motorsports engineering program, you’ll get practical information mixed in with your theoretical background.

Dirt Track Chassis and Suspension is a great holiday gift – and a great offseason read. I know we’ve enjoyed it! If you’re looking for other great off-season reads, check out our Resources page.
