Description:
The Hemi is arguably the most iconic American V-8 in competition history.

Author Geoff Stunkard retraces the fascinating Hemi competition history and covers the big wins, many championships, and key developments in the engine's life.

In NHRA competition, the triumphs and challenges of Don Garlits, Dick Landy, Sox and Martin, and other drag racers are recounted. In NASCAR competition, the 426 Hemi debuted at the 1964 Daytona 500. Richard Petty qualified second, lapped the entire field, and won the race. By the end of the 1964 Grand National season, Hemi-powered cars amassed 26 race victories. NASCAR stars, such as Richard Petty, Bobby Isaac, and David Pearson, piloted the 426 Hemi-equ Please click here to ask a question
