By Peter DePaolo and Frank Frazetta
It’s a strip about a race car driver, naturally. I think that makes a lot of sense: There’s lots of action and possibility for intrigue; race car drivers move around a lot, so you get new locations and meet new people; and you can have people sabotage each others cars. Endless possibilities.
Peter de Paolo, a famous (?) race car driver who supposedly was the writer of the strip, probably didn’t write the strip.
