Default Re: Legendary drivers, in midgets.

Two of my legendary favorites...

Sam Hanks and Mel Kenyon.

I saw Sam Hanks race in So Cal in the late 40' and early 50's. I always thought Mel Kenyon was a good driver.

"Stay tuned for the greatest spectacle in racing" ~ Sid Collins

LAKESIDE - Late at night by the old Lakeside Speedway, you can hear the ghosts - The barking, crackling "Flathead Fords", the zinging "Chevy Stove Bolt's", The rumbling of the "KK-Offy's", and the snarling "Ford V8-60's". Listen and faintly hear the announcer say, "Ladies and gentlemen, the line up for the trophy dash," and the place would erupt with the mix echoes of cheers and boo's...Remember...
