That would be great!


If you can send me pictures on jpg files, any articles and a story I will
add to our website. You can type the story on an email or put on a Microsoft
word document. You can send in a few emails if you want.  It would be a
great addition and that's what is all about.


I think that Quarter Midget history is really important and the fact that
the girls raced against the biggest names in racing would make for a very
interesting story.


Thanks, Brian

I raced for Lil' wheels Racing Assoc. in 1957.  My late sister, Bonnie, and
another girl, Kay Cupee, were probably the only girls racing 1/4 midgets at
that time.  We raced at different tracks in Indiana.  My late father,
Charles R. Clarke, reconditioned my car about 10 yrs. ago.  My sister and I
were featured in The Indianapolis News, Thursday, July 10, 1958.  Also
featured in that article were Dana Carter (son of Duane) and Johnny Parson's
Jr., whom we, also raced against.  I still have many of my trophies, and my
car did not look like the ones you was originally built as a two
seater. The frame was brought in to fit the largest specs allowable.  Lil'
Wheels home track was Art Zipps in Indianapolis.  We also raced at Kokomo's
dirt track, Andersonville, and Lafayette, IN.  These races all occured after
the stock car races, so we raced on regular stock car tracks.  I am sure my
contact info is submitted with this post.  I would be happy to provide you
with any futher info, if you are interested.
