Sam Posey’s racing activities spanned 17 seasons, 1965–81, and included a famous victory in 1975 with BMW in the 12 Hours of Sebring. His second career as a TV commentator began at the 1974 Indy 500 and lasted for more than 40 years with ABC, Speedvision and NBC. He has written three previous books: Where The Writer Meets The Road (2015, a collection of writings), Playing With Trains (2004, about his passion for model railways) and The Mudge Pond Express (1976, an early autobiography about racing). The front straight at Lime Rock Park, his local race circuit in Connecticut, is named after him. In 2016 he was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. He has co-authored this book with his son John.
