NEWBURYPORT, Mass. – Motorsports publisher Coastal 181’s latest title, “The People’s Champ: A Racing Life,” by Dave Darland, will be launched at Kokomo Speedway on Saturday, July 12.
Written with award-winning motorsports journalist Bones Bourcier, “The People’s Champ” follows the career of one of Sprint Car racing’s favorite and most talented racers, well-known to Indiana open-wheel fans and Sprint Car devotees across the country.
“We thought that releasing the book during USAC’s Indiana Sprint Week, and especially at Kokomo, Dave’s ‘home track,’ was a great idea, said Lew Boyd, Coastal 181 president. “Fans can meet Dave and Bones and have them autograph a copy from 3-4 p.m. at front gate of the speedway and after the races at the #71P hauler.”
