Editorial Reviews

Modified Mustangs and Fords - Drew Hardin
"Noted drag race photographer Reyes dips into his archive for a pictoral history of early Pro Stock racing. All the big names are here-- Jenkins, Sox & Martin, Nicholson, Shahan, Landy, and more-- in a book that's chock-full of wheels-up, tire-smoking action." Drew Hardin, Muscle Car Review, June 2013
The Midwest Book Review - James Cox
"Filled with black and white and color photography all throughout, this read of the history of the sport is intriguing and hard to overlook for those curious about the sport and wanting to learn more. The Dawn of Pro Stock is a must for any racing history collections, highly recommended." -The Midwest Book Review, March 2013
Hemmings Muscle Machines - Jim Donnelly
"It may look like a giant magazine, but Steve Reyes' The Dawn of Pro Stock tells the story of drag racing in the Seventies muscle-car era. You may not have heard of any of the major players, but Reyes' enthusiasm and a selecton of spectacular period action photographs will win you over." -Classic Cars, June 2013

This book was really neat! I'm not that into racing, but I found the history of drag racing to be quite interesting and the pictures were fascinating. I could see this appealing to fans of the sport as well as those simply interested in learning more about it.
