‘A History of East Tennessee Auto Racing: The Thrill of the Mountains’ — authored by David McGee

BULLS GAP, Tenn. — I want to encourage all my racing friends to be sure and buy this book written by my friend David McGee, who resides in Bristol and works for the Bristol Herald Courier. David’s also public address announcer at Bristol Motor Speedway and Bristol Dragway, and he’s authored books in the past about BMS and Bristol Dragway’s history.

McGee’s “A History of East Tennessee Auto Racing: The Thrill of the Mountains” will be available to purchase on Feb. 11, 2014. I feel privileged to have been of some assistance to David, when he had questions regarding local drivers and racing around East Tennessee on this latest book project of his. Also of assistance to McGee were Herb Adcox and Tony Morton.

Among drivers interviewed: Brownie King, Paul Lewis, L.D. Ottinger, John A. Utsman, Brad Teague, Jimmy Hensley, Melvin Corum, Travis Tiller, Randy Bethea, Mike and Gary Potter, Jimmie Warden, Scott Bloomquist, plus others.

East Tennessee asphalt and dirt racing fans, you most definitely will want to buy this book. I’ve already read the book from David’s transcripts, and trust me, you won’t be unhappy with your purchase. It’s a must-have for all my East Tennessee racing friends.
