              The most powerful, thrilling, and popular cars and drivers ever to race on dirt track ovals spring from these pages! Sprint car racing competition in and between the US, Australia and New Zealand has never been better than it is today. Sprint car fans are among the most loyal in ...motorsports, they are truly dedicated to the tracks, the drivers and the sport of racing in general. Sprint car racing has to be one the coolest aspects of motorsport, it is just the driver relying on his sixth sense and the car. Where else can you watch two or three drivers at a time get into a battle where lap after lap, corner after corner, they're just pulling slide job after slide job. There's nothing that can get the crowd more excited than watching that unfold and the art behind it. To watch sprint car drivers who know how to do that and to do it well is simply poetry in motion. 'Caged Heat' is a lavishly illustrated monograph that brings to life the adrenalin, the passion and the power of this thrilling and popular motor sport.
