520    "The powers-that-be in auto racing in the 1920s, namely 
       the American Automobile Association's Contest Board, 
       barred everyone who wasn't a white male from the sport. 
       Dewey Gatson, a black man who went by the name Rajo Jack, 
       broke into the epicenter of racing in California, refusing
       to let the pervasive racism of his day stop him from 
       competing against entire fields of white drivers. Though 
       Rajo Jack spent his whole life striving to reach the 
       pinnacle of the sport, the Indianapolis 500, the greatest 
       race in the world wouldn't have him. In The Brown Bullet, 
       Bill Poehler uncovers the life of a long-forgotten 
       trailblazer and the great lengths he took to even get on 
       the track, and, in the end, tells how Rajo Jack proved to 
       a generation that a black man could compete with some of 
       the greatest white drivers of his era, winning some of the
       biggest races of the day"--|cProvided by publisher.
