In the early fall of 2004 Bill and Beth Bradford travel to Bill's childhood home in Bourbon County, Kentucky to inventory and settle the estate of his recently deceased parents. In the attic they discover a large trophy and, most astoundingly, a large scrapbookLittle do they know that the unearthed scrapbook contains hundreds of newspaper clippings detailing the extreme sport of board track racing, an era in motorcycle racing forgotten by time for over 90 years, and the career of one of the sports biggest superstars, Charles “Fearless” Balke, as lovingly assembled by his wife Snooks, Bill Bradford's distant great-auntStaged on half mile circular tracks built of wood and banked at 60 degrees, board track was the most dangerous, most exciting, and deadliest competitive sport of its time. Riding inches apart mounted atop primitive bikes the racers battled not only each other but also the unforgiving boards where accidents regularly maimed or killed participants and fans alike. Little wonder that the newspapers christened the tracks “murderdromes”.Its young stars - the “lords of the boards” - braved these incredible dangers in pursuit of equally outrageous rewards. But lurking beneath it all every racer knew that the price of admission was a willingness to put your life on the line for a shot at glory.This is the first hand story of Charles “Fearless” Balke, his early years, storybook romance, and his tragic final curtain. Although it reads like fiction, this is a true story with every character, event, and location documented. Enjoy.

Sam Arena was, without a doubt, the top Northern California half-mile racer of the 1940s. He became a motorcycle racing legend from his undefeated seasons and by setting numerous flat rack records in the 1930s and 1940s, and later earned six National Hill Climb Championships throughout the 1940s and 1950s. After a career of racing throughout the Western United States, Florida, New Zealand, and England, Sam retired from flat track racing in 1947 to focus on motorcycle hill climbs. From where Sam left off, local riders such as Al Rudy, Larry Headrick, and Joe Leonard (collectively known as the San Jose Bunch), began dominating in their sport under the watchful eye of Tom Sifton. In 1953, after working for famed innovator Sifton for 20 years, Sam became owner of the San Jose Harley Davidson dealership which was the center of Northern California racing throughout the 1950s during the golden age of motorcycle racing. Set against the excitement of motorcycle racing, "ARENA: King of the Flat Tracks" takes you on a thrill ride through 25 years in the life of the great Sam Arena, and these modern day pony express riders who risked life and limb on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons to cross the finish line first.

Paul Ritter's autobiography tells the story of the early days of Superbike racing. Ritter raced a Ducati 750SS and 900SS during the formative days of American Superbike racing. Paul shocked the racing community by winning the first AMA pro Superbike race he entered. His quick success, good nature, and competitive spirit made him one of racing's beloved characters. His account of those days gives readers an up close and personal look into the days when professional racers in the sport were weekend warriors who traveled on shoestring budgets and fueled their bikes with passion and (if they were good) a few dollars of winnings. Ritter tells of racing with legends like Reg Pridmore, Wes Cooley, Mike Baldwin, and Keith Code. Nearly 20 years after retiring from top-level racing, Ritter was hurt in tragic accident at a vintage race that left him without the use of his legs. His story of dealing with a tragic loss is as powerful and inspiring as his remarkable success on the race track.
