Hi Everyone, I have looked into many posting that various members have posted and wanted to respond. My grandfather was Sig Haugdahl the famous race car driver. It is great to see so many pictures and posting over the years, but frustrating as well. There are a lot of postings that have wrong information and names involved. It's also funny to see postings from people who never knew him or his car racing career being so passionate about him. He was a racing pioneer and that is something I am very proud of, and very proud of him. I think I really could appreciate the fact that he held his own for all those years in racing and never sold old, meaning he never took on sponsors and sold his name. He was the dirt track champion of the world, mechanic, designer, innovator, and most of all fearless of anything and that includes speed. Imagine years ago when he was a boy in Norway and they were very poor, he was one of 7 children and all he wanted was a bike for speed. Actually my dad ( Sig's son) is still alive at the age of 84 and he was around for his entire racing career. He has racing memorabilia from his father and thousands of pictures and articles from his career. I actually got to see the Wisconsin Special in Amelia Island, Fl March 2008 and got to sit in it. What a THRILL! Anyway if you have any questions I would be happy to answer them.
