Author/Race Car Driver B.S. Levy and The Last Open Road

B.S. Levy

Ron Hills has interviewed legends for nearly 40 years for his Race Report show. He even interviewed me recently…..Okay it was a slow day for Ron that day but a win is a win. This week he’s talking to author/race car driver B.S. Levy about his cult classic book “The Last Open Road.”

His e-book version of this cult classic motoring novel is available from Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook for just 99 cents until Thursday, June 26th. It’s considered as the best, funniest and most true to life auto racing story every published.

It’s a classic coming-of-age story about 19-year-old New Jersey gas station mechanic Buddy Palumbo, who learns about life, work, friendship, love and racing during the open-road sports-car era of the Eisenhower 1950s.

All the historical events in the book, including the early, through-the-streets automobile races at Watkins Glen (N.Y.), Bridgehampton (N.Y.) and  Elkhart Lake (Wis.) are presented exactly as they occurred, only with Levy’s fictional characters woven into the stories of the real people and cars that were there.

His knowledge of and respect for iconic machines and motorsports history and his unique, conversational writing style combine to make his books true cult-classics on the motorsports and collector-car scenes.

Thanks to Ron and Judy Stropus for the heads up on the story. To take advantage of this special, one-time promotional rate of 99 cents til Thursday the 26th go here.

You can check out Ron Hills Race Report on Fox 40 Thursday at 10:35pm and on My 8 Saturday morning at 10am.
