The Pacesetter is the story of Carl G. Fisher - a "forgotten man" - who just happened to be the creator of the Indy 500, The Dixie Highway, Miami Beach and The Lincoln Highway. Along the way, Fisher made an enemy of Miami Beach resident Al Capone, became the friend of several presidents, and drove the pace car for the first Indy 500 in 1911. Written by his cousin Jerry, this book skillfully fills the gap in biographical literature about one of the great visionaries of the 20th century, and a true local hero.
