Great collection of midget photos. Thanks for posting them!
Yes, great collection. I hesitate to mention it, but we have a seperate Midget thread where the pictures might be better placed: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/vintage-cageless-midget-picture-thread.337192/
A.J., Rex Easton. Salem 61.
Al Keller Milwaukee 61.
Leon Clum, A.J., P.J.- Terra Haute 61.
Rootie, that isn't Al Keller.
I agree..It looks like Cotton Farmer in 1960
A nice poster I've had for 50 years....
Eddie Sachs Trenton 58.
Daniels, Richert and Larson-Terra Haute 65.
McCluskey leads the boss Elmer George IRP 61.
You're welcome indyrjc. Sorry it took so long for me to get around to posting it, or for that matter, posting this reply. In an odd coincidence, the photo is looking toward where Autobooks second (or was it third?) location was.
Bobby Unser Pikes Peak 1957.
Rex Easton 1961.
Red Reigel gets a little behind on his steering, Terra Haute 65.
Hi Tommy, just an aside here - the Carmen-McGee-roadster driven by Carmen's favorite cut-down driver Eddie Hoyle sold at auction for 100K at Las Vegas in 2011- Jimmy was there to witness the sale. 4 photos of the car with description and two photos of the Carmen-Doody cut down duo from late 50s at Norwood Arena. I don't believe the roadster ever qualified for a race. (I noticed your address - were you friends with Tommy Caruso? I belonged to Bay State Midget Old Timers until everyone got too old to do anything) lol
One more PS I inadvertently met McGee several years ago out here in the desert, he winter's just a few blocks away - gave him this photo from Ron Bernaski - McGee's first race car mechanic job https://www.flickr.com/photos/91981316@N06/16023102291/in/album-72157632911694050/
Mack Hellings with Tommy Lee's KK2000, Del Mar Nov. 6 1949. Mack qualified 18 finished 4th on the day we lost Rex Mays.

I'll send you a PM tomorrow, with my email address etc, I think the last time we spoke I was with the Shuman's in the oilfields at Bakersfield and son Ronnie had just won Turkey Night. (Good grief, that's 23 years ago)
