Question looking for some information

Hi, I was hoping that some of you might be able to help me.
My Grandfather, Ray Smith raced in the 20's and 30's for the C.W. Lambert team from Kokomo, IN, before being killed at a track in Columbus, IN. in 1938
.
As my Dad was only 3 when he was killed, he has no real recollection of his father and information that we have about him is very spotty. Most of those who would have remembered are now gone.
My Dads health is now failing, and I am trying to locate old photos, articles, and information about his Father for him.
Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Default Re: looking for some information

That's going way back...I found that the track in Columbus Indiana, by have been known as Bartholomew County Fairgrounds. It's listed as a 1/2 dirt oval from 1937 till 1973 and had a 1/4 mile dirt oval as well from 1949 till 1955. There is also a Bartholomew County 4-H Fairgrounds south of Columbus Indiana it's a 1/5 mile dirt oval 1977 till present. That's all I have at this point.

Thank you.
I know C.W. Lambert had a few cars, would anyone have any information on how to get in touch with his remaining family? (Kokomo, IN)
I know this was a long time ago......
