  3. Quarter Midget Racers from Late 50's/early 60's

    I see two Walhborg 300's and 1 Viking Craft in the background. The red racer appears to be a Wahlborg 500 and looks like late 50's early 60's is the setting. Remember there were hundreds of race tracks across the nation during this time era. Looks like the pit area in Sunny California but other than that it was a typical time of the early quarter midget years. Maybe someone was there who can help us here

    How did the name Quarter Midget come about? Quite simply because they were scaled down 1/4 the size of a full scale midget. Not hard to figure that one out ..

    Ted, We spend a lot of our life getting rid of things as we progress in everyday life. Then we spend the rest of our life trying to gather back what we got rid of. Human nature I guess Good luck in finding a midget

    We welcome all Quarter Midget fans from all over the country and in every state. These were some of the most memorable days of the mid century and I am very thankful I was there to participate and share the experience and memories today! We hope everyone shares their experience with these little fire breathers that stormed the tracks and became so popular before the Go Karts took over with popularity in those days. Fortunately Quarter midgets still thrive but more on the scale of Go Karts with bodies in today's world. Many of the chassis and parts are the same. Thanks for visiting this site and share with other fans of vintage Quarter Midgets
