Owned by Dick Belveal, this Kurtis Kraft Midget features a 110 Offenhauser engine. Frank Kurtis built nearly 600 serialized racers, with their varied histories documented in books and magazines throughout the U.S. This combination of car and power plant was almost impossible to beat in post-war racing and dominated for almost 20 years.

One of the best on the West coast was this famous racing midget driven by Troy Ruttman, Roger Ward, Elmer George and Johnny Woods. Regardless of the hired driver, the “Surdo Special” continuously finished toward the front.
