Full Throttle:
Racing and Rodding in Southwest and Central Virginia

Since the early 1900s Southwest Virginia has had a love affair with fast automobiles. The stock cars racing around rural oval tracks, the dragsters roaring down small-town drag strips, the hot rods cruising through teen hangouts, the moonshine liquor cars passing through the darkness, and the muscle cars rumbling at stoplights all have a chapter in the region’s heritage.
