Silent Thunder, the highly anticipated memoir of legendary auto racing veteran Len Miller is one such story. It offers a rare and surprising inside look at the struggles and triumphs of some of the most courageous men and women in motorsports -- African Americans.

Whether youre a racing fan or a black history enthusiast, the authors deeply personal chronicle of his remarkable forty-year career as a manager and owner of African American teams is a gripping testimonial to the empowered underdog in all of us. From inside the pits where resourcefulness defines victory or defeat, to behind the wheel with nothing but the smell of adrenaline and fear, to the plush upholstered offices of corporate sponsors where truth can be treacherous, Silent Thunder is an engrossing read that moves at lightening speed.

The author also shares fascinating behind-the-scenes anecdotes featuring such names as Howard Cosell, Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti, Skip Barber, Clarence Thomas, Malcolm Durham, Wendell Scott, Linda Lovelace, Don King, and many others. Len Millers narrative acumen is eclipsed only by his engrossing honesty. Silent Thunder is a compelling window into the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of injustice, humiliation, and even cruelty. Yet, while it exposes the underbelly of racism and elitism in one of Americas most beloved sports, it also celebrates the hope and possibility for change.
