This book started as a self-serving exercise to personally organize the major details and interesting facts of each Indianapolis 500 over the hundred-plus-year history of the greatest race in the world. For many of us passionate racing fans who have attended a multitude of 500s, there is a tendency for the details of the races to (somewhat) blend together. I hope this book will help to provide clarity in this regard as well as educate. During high school, many of us chose to use CliffsNotes to assist in the education process. This book is somewhat patterned after that concept. It falls somewhere between Donald Davidson and Rick Schaffer—the best and by far the most detailed book on the history of the Indianapolis 500—and a multitude of pictorial books with limited information. I hope it will prove to be an easy read with entertaining and educational information.

Pocono: NASCAR's Northern Invasion," by author Joe Miegoc, is the story of how NASCAR stepped into the breach created by the Indy car war of the late 1970s, saved Pocono Raceway from extinction and gave it an expanded national identity. In the late 1970s, NASCAR's northern races were few. One was at Pocono, a unique three-turn track caught in the middle in the CART-USAC war which was about to send Indy car racing's popularity into history's ashbin. As Pocono teetered on bankruptcy, NASCAR founder Bill France convinced Pocono owner Dr. Joe Mattioli to try it one last time. France knew Pocono's strategic value, rewarding Pocono with a second Winston Cup race in the process. Hall of Fame drivers and NASCAR insiders tell how Pocono gave NASCAR expanded exposure to 30 million people in a 300-mile radius of the track. "Pocono: NASCAR's Northern Invasion" tells the story of the third-largest rock festival of the 1970s drawing 200,000 fans, of where Janet Guthrie became the first woman to drive in a 500-mile Indy car race, where Tim Richmond flashed onto the stock-car scene and where Bobby Allison's career ended on a Father's Day afternoon.

Fighter pilots experience the fastest acceleration on earth. However, during training, the expression, “that pilot is all thrust and no vector,” can be heard. It describes a pilot who is going nowhere fast. That concept holds true in our lives and especially in business. We live in an age of instant information, where everything moves at the speed of light. Do you ever feel that you are going fast but getting nowhere? Accelerator Leaders learn how to focus and act so that their acceleration results in real impact. Discover how to be an Accelerator Leader to accelerate yourself, those around you and your organization. Book Review 1: "Alvin Rohrs is a remarkable leader. He "Accelerated" the growth of a small regional non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action, Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE), to a place where it has become the largest organization of it's kind in the world, now known as Enactus, leveraging the resources of over 500 corporate partners, in 36 countries, engaged with over 1,700 colleges and universities, nearly 70,000 students, and impacting over a million people a year. Without Alvin at the helm of the ship, this extraordinary story of growth and contribution is impossible to imagine. Leveraging his extraordinary knowledge and experiences, Alvin is a gifted and inspiring speaker about everything from leadership, to accelerating organization and personal growth, to leading a meaningful and fulfilling everyday life. His wit, wisdom, and storytelling are second to none. I highly recommend him as a speaker extraordinaire." -- Douglas R. Conant, Former Chairman SIFE/Enactus Founder and CEO Conant Leadership; Retired CEO Campbell Soup Company; Former Chairman Avon Products Book Review 2: "Not only is Alvin Rohrs one of the most moving and powerful speakers I know he is also a great coach on what it means to be a leader and really move an organization towards success.
