Overview

Legendary drag racer and fiction writer Grady Bryant has released his latest book, Drag Race Fever. It was only a matter of time before Grady shared his adventures of the early days of drag racing in a story that all sports and drag racers will enjoy. The story involves a young man getting started in drag racing in the early 1960's when the factory experimental race cars were the top calling cards of all drag race promoters. These cars were the first Funny Cars of today. Read how these racers evolved into the cars we see today and learn how driver Johnny Rock and his mechanic Clutch Roberts toured the states pulling their race car to the next match race, continuously sacrificing so their car would have the parts to race again. Although the story is fiction any drag race fan can fit different names to the drivers and relate to all the accounts of living on the road and racing every Saturday and Sunday at different tracks across the nation.

Meet the Author

After attending only one year at the University of New Mexico Grady found he could not control his restlessness and moved on to more exciting projects.  He joined the army and after completing his aptitude testing for the military he was trained for assignments that suited his call for high adventure.  When discharged he turned to driving race cars and was immediately  picked up by Chevrolet to help develop several concepts of the muscle car area. After a successful ten years of driving, promotion, and handling motor sports teams Grady quit and returned to college and earned a law degree. He practiced criminal law until sickened by the legitimacy of the system and returned to what he knew best, driving race cars. Grady was immediately hired to drive for corporations such as Chrysler, Levis, Matco Tools, and his last ride was with Adolph Coors, Corp. Being a syndicated writer for several motor sports publications lead him to write his first book about the early days of drag racing, “Match Race Madness.” It relates to the early days of racing and is considered to have a cult following and is frequently quoted in motor sports editorials. Unbeknownst to himself he was continuously preparing himself to be an action adventure writer, encompassing his travels and adventures into fiction, which is manifested in all his books. Grady's second book about the alleged Roswell incident is a story talked about by the New Mexico Apache Indians, and has never been told outside their circle. The Devils Bible the lost chapters, and Cause of Action are packed with adventure that will keep you on he edge of your seat. Grady has written scripts for movies and recently finished filming the Legend of Booger Red which he wrote, produced and started in
