Synopsis : Soon after the first automobiles were introduced in the United States, auto racing became a reality. Since that time, motorsports have expanded to include drag racing, open wheel racing, rallying, demolition derbies, stock car racing, and more. Motorsports have grown to such an extent that NASCAR is now the second most watched professional sport in America, behind only football. But motorsports are about much more than going fast and finishing first. These events also reflect our culture, our society, our values, and our history. In Motorsports and American Culture: From Demolition Derbies to NASCAR, Mark D. Howell and John D. Miller bring together essays that examine the relevancy of motorsports to American culture and history, from the late nineteenth century to the present. Addressing a wide spectrum of motorsports-such as stock car racing, demolition derbies, land speed record pursuits, and even staged train wrecks-the essays highlight the social and cultural implications of contemporary and historical moments in these sports. Topics covered include gender roles in motorsports, hot rods and the creation of fan and participant identities, the appeal of demolition derbies, the globalization of motorsports, the role of moonshine in stock car history, the economic relationship between NASCAR and its corporate sponsors, and more. Offering the most thorough study of motorsports to date from a diverse pool of disciplines and subjects, Motorsports and American Culture will appeal to motorsports and automobile enthusiasts, as well as those interested in American history, popular culture, sports history, and gender studies.

Critique: Howell and Miller have brought together a wide array of individuals with disparate backgrounds and interests. The volume asks the question of whether US motor-sport culture is unique (as compared to that of Europe or Asia)--and if it is, how and why. The question, addressed in several essays, is answered in part by the nature of the geography of the US (large and open) and the nature of the population, diverse in origin and behavior. The most striking, well-considered discussion is of stock-car racing--and by extension NASCAR--which began on dirt track as a regional event and gradually became national (though it is often still considered culturally regional). Also discussed are gender issues, which began in particular types of racing; as in many situations, a woman had to be better than the men even to become involved. This bias diminished but has still not disappeared...Summing Up: Recommended...Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; general readers. CHOICE Howell's and Miller's Motorsports and American Culture: From Demolition Derbies to NASCAR is a welcome publication in the small but growing field of motor sports studies...[C]ollections of essays such as this one offering different perspectives on a common theme can be exciting reads because one witnesses on the page scholars in the act of angling approaches to a newer area of study. Aethlon: Journal of Sports Literature Motorsports and its multiple variations have influenced American history and culture in myraid ways, and Motorsports and American Culture: From Demolition Derbies to NASCAR chronicles this influence in the critical and entertaining fashion...For those whose background and knowledge of American motorsports is limited, Motorsports and American Culture serves as an excellent introduction to the role of motorsports in American culture, with thorough research notes and bibliogrpahy provided. Even those who are well versed in the subject will find the book an enjoyable read. Society of Automative Historians Journal The primary value of Motorsports and American Culture is launching conversations that encourage more in-depth studies in this under-examined field. In other words, the volume offers starting points for research as motorsports becomes increasingly intermingled with broader popular culture domains. These essays help readers further understand, and even critique, the relationships between racing and American culture/national identity...[T]he collection is most useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in sport communication, cultural studies, gender studies classes, and even applied coursework in sports management. Motorsports and American Culture provides valuable contextual and historical background regarding the intricate relationship between American identity, popular culture, and auto racing. The Popular Culture Studies Journal
