The photos in this album are from a collection made by the famous American motorsport historian Don Radbruch who passed away in 2007. He loved all forms of motorsport, wrote books and articles on the various disciplines. But his main loves were midget cars and sprint cars. Most of the drivers featured in this collection were active in the second part of the 1930s.
