368C: Service Boys dirt track car racing series (Solved!)

– Fiction – Vintage series – 1970s or earlier – about dirt track racing written for kids. It was checked located in the children’s section of the library. Trying to find these books as a gift for a friend who remembers them very fondly, but doesn’t remember details, just that it was a series and of course, that it was about dirt track car racing.

    Margaret and George Ogan wrote some books that sound similar to the description, and 1960s-70s

    I’m not sure if they were a series, though. Titles included “Backyard Winner”, “Pancake Special”, “Devil Drivers”, “Raceway Charger” and “Desert Road Racer”

      Thank you – I’ll look in to them – my friend’s memory is sketchy, so it may not have been a series as they remember.

      You were right -thank you so much! I was able to find and buy a few of these books. My friend was thrilled and said they are as much fun to read as she remembered!

    Maybe ‘Dirt Bike Racer’ by Matt Christopher (1979)?

    Offhand I don’t recall any sequels, but Christopher was prolific and wrote mostly about kids and sports.
