Default Re: 1940 Lakeside, Denver, CO Midget Speedway

As far as I know, Tommy Rice and his wife still live on their ranch in Erie, CO north of Denver. I've been away from Denver for 9 years, but to the best of my knowledge, Tommy is still alive. Not sure but heard the Kurtis Offy midget is still in his barn. Bill Hill's book "Decades of Daring Midget Racing in the Rocky Mountain West" published in 2000, has a bio of Tommy, and it stated that Tommy was still with us as of the writing of the book. Here's a photo from that book.
