John Dillard aka Shorty Dillard


Recommended Posts

I am searching for any information I can find on Shorty Dillard. I know he raced at the Abilene Speedway in the early 50's. I found this newspaper clipping from May 1952.
And we have 1 picture of him standing next to a car he raced. Wasn't painted yet and I don't know the number he drove. I was a very young child but I remember he was friends with Clyde Johnson who also raced in Abilene.
I also remember a story of him dressing in a wig and dress for the Powder Puff Derby and won but of course was disqualified lol. He was quiet a character and I would love to find out any info I can on his racing day's.
