  3. I spoke with Kevin Olson today. Kevin is a 10 time midget champ. He is coming to town to be the Emcee. He is a blast and full of stories. The great part will be when people like Cary Agajanian, Emmet Hahn and Rutherford start telling Olson and Stan Fox stories. Bart
  4. Thanks Nick! We are getting close!! I went to Wichita Falls last week and spent some time going through Ruby's trophies. We will have a few on display as part of the memorabilia section. We'll have early cycle racing, OK City midget and even Daytona trophies. Sure hope you can make it this year. Bart www.RadiusNation.net

  7. Trying to locate 100" Super

    Has this car been found? I was talking to John Layne at the Chili Bowl and was looking around for cars he owned. Hey Randy Coons, you are in Houston and seem to know everyone there. Any ideas? Bart
  8. Paul Jett

    Gald to hear is is home and getting around. I got to see Paul and his wife last year at the Racers Reunion Banquet in Irving. I got to first meet him in the late 90s in San Antonio. Get Well! Bart
  9. Quarter Midget Racers from Late 50's/early 60's

    Thanks Randy! There a couple reason why we chose to feature Vintage Quarter Midgets and one of them was the stories I have read on this thread over the last couple of years. We are looking to have a great time and all who have participated or just love this type of racing are invited to attend. We still have room for a few more Vintage Quarter Midgets to display. They can be survivors or restored cars, just needs to be a roller. There will also be an assortment of other vintage race cars. We have a Larry Rice Champ car coming from OK and a sprint car coming from Kansas. Please contact me off list at bart.stevens@verizon.net with questions. Did I mention this would be a great time to get a picture of Johnny Rutherford with you & your own Quarter Midget! Bart
  10. Things are coming together very well for the car show. I have recently got commitments for vintage cars from Oklahoma and Kansas that will be on display at the show. BTW this is part of a family festival so you can bring the whole family. There are lots of free kid games, activities and a coloring section. Bart
  11. Registration is now open for the Manifolds on Main Car Show. If you have a vintage race car that you would like to display as part of the show please contact me. Our focus is vintage non-winged cars; roll cages are fine but no downbars. We had an amazing assortment of cars last year and expect the show to grow this year. Here are some of the past participants. 1927 Miller Offy Big car 1934 Plymouth Coupe 1935 Dreyer V8 60 Midget 1935 Dreyer Offy Midget 1936 Fredricks Elto Midget 1937 Boyle V8 60 Midget 1938 Wetteroth Offy Big car 1939 Hillegass Offy Midget 1939 Wetteroth Midget 1940 Richter V8 60 Midget 1941 Hillegass V8 60 Midget 1946 Kurtis Kraft Offy Midget 1954 Kurtis Kraft Offy Midget 1954 Luther 1/4 Midget 1957 Tiny Mite 1/4 midget 1958 CAE Chevy Sprint car 1958 CAE/Henry Chevy Sprint car 1959 Hank Henry Offy Sprint car 1959 Taraschi Formula Jr. 1961 Elder Offy Indy Roadster 1966 Lindsey Chevy Super modified 1967 Edmunds Ford Midget 1967 Lotus 51 Formula Ford 1971 Maserati Sports car 1972 Murphree Chevy Sprint car 1974 Nance Chevy Super modified 1984 Leffler Chevy Champ car We have added a Racer Reunion on Friday night September 24th.

  14. Nance Super Modified registration just came in today.
  15. Last year we ended up with over 180 cars total. This year the pre-registration is about double so far compared to last year. The goal is to have 2 dozen vintage race cars and we are on track to meet the goal. Mark September 26th on your calender. Bart
