About the Author

The author of five previous Speed Secrets books, Ross Bentley is a former Indy Car driver and winner of the U.S. Road Racing Championship. Today, he’s a professional driving coach who works with drivers at every level of racing, from karting to the IRL.

Although he no longer races regularly, Bentley still drives competitively. In 2003, his team won the SRP2 class at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and in 2005, he teamed with three 16-year-old phenoms to contest the GT Class at Daytona in a Racer's Group Porsche.

This combination of driving and coaching skills allows Bentley to write about the actual task of driving a race car with more depth and intellect than any other author working today.
