About the Book

This is a mechanics story. Lew has worked on a variety or cars and racecars though out his career. This is also the story of a little boy who used to listen to the Indianapolis 500 on the radio in his little hometown in Pennsylvania and dream about going there. This is the story of a man who’s dream came true when he walked through the gates of the Indianapolis Speedway for the first time in 1970. It is also the story of a family, their friends and a lifestyle. Lew’s wife Joan always said, “Life with Lew has been interesting, I never knew what to expect.” That is the truth.
