Been collecting them for about 30 years. I have all the chassis and motors to build 85 cars.

Chris, did you attend the Westboro Speedway when it existed? I watched many a midget race there when I lived in Framingham.

I have a Midget Chris repaired for the first owner of Modelville Hobby and it is beautiful. And it runs too.

 

Speedy Modelville would love to host your IROC races.

Chris, does the foundation have any of the Badger lay-down cars made in Northboro? I recall they were "the car" in midget racing, only to be replaced by an upright car powered by a modified VW engine. The wide variety of motors is what interested me I used to see small block Chevies cut into V-4s & inline fours, as well as various others.. My friend Jeff Horn of Ashland ran supers at Star Speedway when I lived in the area. Later, he & I think his son too, ran midgets.
