Re: 1946-48 Lakeside Speedway Midget Photos

Well, it wasn't "Pop", he went by Pappy Hedricks. And Ray was known as Flippet Tippett. Both were good friends of my dad.

Re: 2012 Racer's Reunion at CNS?

Well, that would be fun, but in keeping with the vintage theme, we should wear white pants too. My dad used to buy his "Whites" from the Navy Surplus store.

Re: Speedway Royale - Sydney Showground.

Bob, I always enjoy posts from the Land Down Under. There are only three countries that have excellent open wheel dirt track racing. OZ, NZ, and the USA. I need to visit there some time.

Re: Rear engine Midgets

Well, from the pics, it looks like you could have just taken a formula V and modified it a little, and had a rear engined VW midget.

Re: Roaring Roadsters of the 1940's

If you look at the driver listing in the program, you will see three Russells listed. T.E., my dad, Bob, my uncle, and Glenn, also my uncle. Three of the five "Racing Russells."

Re: Roaring Roadsters of the 1940's

I believe the 74 may also be my dad, as this looks like his first car. But, I was only three at that time, so I can't be sure.
