Books - Mickey Thompson, His Fast Life and Mysterious Death (Author: Arenson)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine The name of Mickey Thompson is one that is
deeply rooted in many forms of motorsport in
the USA. Like many of the big names in the
West Coast racing scene, Mickeyâ€™s motoring
career started with hot rodding, illegal drag
racing and racing on the California dry lakes.
He went on to set nearly 400 records for
speed trials and drag racing, raced in the Indy
500, took part in and built cars for various offroad
events and created several successful
businesses. All of these achievements
are often overshadowed by the events of
March 16th 1988 when, at the age of 59,
Thompson and his second wife were gunned
down in the driveway of their home. This
fascinating book tells the story of the man,
his many achievements, his murder and the
investigation that followed.
