    Growing up in the Southern California motorcycle world in the 60’s and 70’s and reading this book about a real life hero and winner was like living it all over again. A MUST READ for us 70 year olds…or anyone who wants to know how it REALLY was!!!

    I’ve enjoyed every page. It is definitely a fun read. It’s loaded with great, vintage pictures but the stories take you right back to the good ol’ days. I learned a lot about your career and it is impressive.

    Thanks Sonny I can see that you spent a lot of time on this book and it shows. Congratulations, it’s a winner…..chris

    A few but not many racers could make the transition from two wheels to four. Sonny is one racer that “dared” to do it and write a fine book about his life. Sonny is entertaining in real life and so is his book.

    A terrific career story of a dirt track racer. His love of the sport, fellow competitors, and the support by mentors , friends, and family, is uplifting and inspiring. It is what champions are made of

    An excellent detailed account of Sonny Nutter’s racing life. This is the book for anyone interested in the history of the Southern California motorcycle racing scene. Reading his account was almost like having a conversation. The style was informal and authoritative. I was impressed with the nearly total recall of races from forty years ago including the changes in position of the racers during each one. Of particular interest were Sonny’s adventures in racing abroad. Finally the copious illustrations help put faces to the racers’ names mentioned throughout this incredible book.
