Well we've gone and done it. HOPublishing has teamed with producer Harry Pallenberg and created a video documentary based on our book Where They Raced. We've been shooting video, doing interviews, and collecting a ton of data over the past two years. It's all coming together and several episodes are up at WhereTheyRaced.com. A link is under "DOCUMENTARY".
We've shot some video with both Adam Carolla and Jay Leno in recent months, again in regards to Where They Raced. There's a bit of shtick involved but they are a couple of genuine car guys. Video links are under "Appearances".
HO Publishing.com features photos, data, and other information about the auto racing history of Southern California. Harold Osmer has written three books on the subject and each are available through the Where They Raced, Real Road Racing, and Saugus Speedway buttons at your left.
We have sponsored cars at Ascot, produced the program for USAC's Turkey Night Grand Prix since 2001, announced the 2012 SCTA Bonneville Speed Weeks, had a weekly radio show LIVE from Irwindale Speedway and fielded two cars at the 24 Hours of Lemons (check the link for photos and video). Yeah, we've been around.
There are thousands of photos in our files and are always looking for more.
ps...The three HO Publishing books are no longer available through Amazon.com. We had a good run of 12 years, but shipping costs killed the deal. It has always been cheaper to get them direct from us anyway.
