Assume the Hill signature is fake unless he has proof.

This just arrived at my place recently. Very thick book about the Bettenhausens. No clue when I will find the time to read it, but it is apparently very well written. By the same guy who did the Indianapolis yearbooks.

Also on the way is "A Month at the Brickyard" -- a 1977 account of the month of May for Johnny Parsons.

I am currently reading Black Noon by Art Garner; about three quarters of the way through.
It was published last year and tells the story of the 1964 Indy 500.  I've always been curious about the events leading up to the Sachs-MacDonald crash because there has been so much myth and misinformation surrounding it over the years.  Garner clears away all that BS and provides a detailed, well-researched account of the month of May in 1964. The back story of the race alone is really a great read. The front-engined roadsters versus the rear-engined "funny cars", alcohol versus gasoline, Firestone versus Goodyear, etc. Sachs and MacDonald are profiled throughout; two very different people who were after the same goal. I highly recommend this book.

Black Noon is a great book. I also recommend Beast after that, the story of the 1994 Indy 500.

Indycars were the beautiful machines raced in the early 90s, the sublimation of the american racing concept. What is raced nowadays in tracks that formerly saw so many glorious sundays is ... a rolling disgrace study

Read this a while back, and yes, it is excellent.  The section on Suzy Miller and Richard Burton was a bit more than I wanted to know, but that was my only gripe  Wink
