Jack rich built the ncra type cars and midgets stopped making sprint cars after buddy Taylor was killed in one of his cars ? Right?
I remember old guys tell a story about one night at a Mid-America Fairgrounds Sprint car show in Topeka somehow officials let"Fast Eddie" Leavitt drive a full midget. In the feature the green flag dropped and he passed everyone before turn 1. As he pitched it sideways he gestured with his left arm to the group of roaring sprinters behind him to catch up. I've heard several versions of the tale but question if anyone remembers actually seeing it. Eddie was a charactor.
