In addition, Smith published "Carroll Smith's Nuts, Bolts and Fasteners Handbook," which was the best selling automotive technical book in 1990 and "Drive to Win," which has received several international awards. "I am pleased to have the opportunity to work again with my friends at PPI and especially to be a part of the birth of a new racing team," said Smith, who designed the off-road racing trucks for Toyota and PPI from 1982 to 1985. "I look forward to the challenge of helping PPI become a dominant force in the KOOL/TOYOTA Atlantic Championship."
