But that's what I call them.
On a lark, I went to the Roseburg, "Ory-gun" dirt-track, short-oval races.
Stood on the inside of the track. No flash. B&W film.
Had a blast! Pics are not pro quality- but I'm not a pro .

Amazing Charlie, there is a dirt track here at Rossburg, Ohio that runs these midgets also!

Thanks for the comment, Douglas.
For many years I made it a point to watch a great variety of events going on within a couple hundred miles of where I lived (these races were only 15 miles away).
I even went to an important regional cat show in Portland:
Wow! What a lot of strange creatures there.
And a lot of strange cats, too.
