Jacksonville, FL — The rich history of the Brumos brand — from its inception in the earliest days of the 20th Century to the establishment of The Brumos Collection in 2020 — is chronicled in Brumos: An American Racing Icon, a three-volume box set now available for pre-purchase.
With insight, perspective and recollections from Roger Penske and others who have shaped motorsports history, the book series is expected to begin shipping by mid-summer.
The 1,500-page set is the result of years of research conducted by author Sean Cridland, who also wrote Hurley: From The Beginning, a popular biography of motorsports icon Hurley Haywood.
“The story of our brand is exquisitely conveyed through both Sean’s writings and the hundreds and hundreds of historical photos offered in this three-volume set,” said Dano Davis, owner of Brumos Racing and The Brumos Collection.
Volume I: The Brundage Era chronicles the historical events that led to the creation and development of one of the world’s most legendary teams. With a foreword by Roger Penske, the story begins with the introduction of Brumos founder Hubert Brundage and runs through several significant events in American history before the onset of the American sports car craze of the 1950s.
Volume 2: The Peter Gregg Era begins with a foreword by Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Founder and Chairman Bill Warner and recounts the explosive 1970s when Peter Gregg, Hurley Haywood, Jack Atkinson and Porsche-owned American GT racing.
Volume 3: 1980 Through 2020 opens with comments from actor and racer Patrick Dempsey and covers the challenges and victories of Brumos in the post-Peter Gregg era, from early 1981 to 2020.
