Beloved by a band of speed demons and rule breakers decked out in leather-strapped pilot goggles and long, wiry beards, the Race of Gentlemen, or “TROG” as it’s affectionately come to be known, is a yearly celebration of American hot rod culture. It takes place once a year on the sandy beaches of Wildwood, New Jersey, where competitors and enthusiasts alike gather in the name of speed. Vintage cars, motorcycles and other weathered machines are raced more for camaraderie than for competition, capturing the best of a bygone era. With a foreword by artist Robert Williams, introduction by Chris Nelson and commentary from the race’s founder Mel Stultz himself, The Race of Gentlemen brings readers down to the beach for a front row seat to the action.
