Hi all. Regarding the Mighty Midgets book, there is now an even better book on midgets that has been printed and I now count this new book as the Bible of midget car racing world wide. Its called, 'Distant Thunder - When Midgets Were Mighty'. It is an American publication, and details midgets and their origins. It is a magnificent 395 page hard cover book that anyone who loves the sport of midgets, should have one on his desk. Its a Dicky Wallen produced masterpiece.

Hmm. If it's anything to do with Dicky Wallen it's absolutely bound to be worth a look. And also, if it's anything to do with Dicky Wallen it might make a copy of The Mighty Midgets look quite reasonable...

Proves my point Rod, I think! BUT...if my board track book by him is anything to go by, absolutely worth every penny if you actually have it to spend. His work is expensive but you really do get what you pay for.

Using the name without a 'y' or 'ie' is a problem. I have made another attempt on the name Dicky to see it is is recognised without these adds!
Whilst the Dicky Wallen books may be expensive I believe they are the best - his DVD's are more reasonable and once you've seen A.J.Foyt in action it makes you realise how safe and comfortable a modern racing midget is!

I've just returned from Knoxville Iowa. Went to see the 50th running of the Nationals. While I was there I purchased a brand new, sealed copy of The Mighty Midgets. Cost was US$59:95. There were more in stock in the Sprintcar Hall of Fame and Museum.
