But for his second novel, a sequel, Levy is taking the self-publishing route again, financing the book partly by way of 32 in-text automobile advertisements.
Telling the story of an exhilarating and funny road trip set against the backdrop of the s racing scene is Buddy Palumbo, a good-hearted year-old from Passaic, N. Eager to immerse himself in the racing lifestyle, much to the chagrin of his disapproving family, Palumbo--along with his buddies, scrap dealer and financier Big Ed Baumstein and daredevil driver Cal Carrington--weaves his way through the racing season.
With Palumbo handling the pit crew, the team competes in races as glamorous as the mile Carrera Panamericana in Mexico and as second-rate as those held on abandoned air force landing strips. Back at home, Palumbo struggles with his personal life, complicated by a huge, dysfunctional extended family, a demanding but fiercely devoted fianc e and one problem after another at the gas station where he works. In Palumbo, Levy has created a salt-of-the-earth character whose simple approach to life and folk wisdom make him an unassuming yet engaging hero.
Levy, himself a semi-pro racer in the s and s, also provides vivid and authentic descriptions of racing, often tossing in real-life characters and events that will delight fans of the sport. Moreover, Levy is a marvelous storyteller, as adept at explaining the intricacies of a Jaguar's engine as he is at recounting the bewildering family dynamics at a Thanksgiving dinner.

He first began writing his debut novel about racing in while sitting by the pool dealing with a serious hangover thanks to rum. Writing it would take him eight years and focuses on the story of a mechanic that finds himself sucked into the world of upper crust sports car racing. If you loved Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or novels that revolve around sports, this is the one for you. This story takes place in the fifties. It was a time in America where anything seemed possible and the horizon was wide open. These were the times when open road races would take place all the time and enthusiasts would take their European sport cars and put them to the test in places like Elkhart Lake, Bridgehampton, as well as Watkins Glen.
These races would be full of action and really put the mechanics of the cars to the test. This was a time in the United States when the risk would be worth just as much as the reward in these tests of courage and risk taking ability.
