Landy - 1947 Badger Midget Auto Racing Champion

Landy 1957

Landy 1960

Landy, Father's Day 2008 - Reunited with his Midget after 48 years.

Landy Scott was a fan favorite throughout the Midwest, driving his famous #17 midget racer, powered by an unconventional Studebaker engine, on a shoestring budget to victories on oval dirt tracks everywhere. Landy won the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association's 1947 Championship and served as the president of Badger for 9 years.

Landy's #17 is now back with the Scott family and continues to be shown at car shows and special events to help preserve the history of the Mighty Midget's impact on auto racing and to honor the accomplishments of its fearless driver who they proudly call Dad.

Landy's #17 midget is currently on display at the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, Indiana. Visit this world class automotive museum and see Landy's midget close up.

This page is dedicated in memory of Landy Soctt, June 21, 1919 - November 3, 2014. Rest in Peace Dad, we miss you.

I grew up close to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg PA but it seems I was a bit late to get to see these style cars. There's also a museum of speed in York Springs's a link to their museum...lots to see and do if you're ever in the area.

Interesting Studebaker engine for power. Six in a row will go and go and go.
