Racer, Fabricator, Car Builder, Walt Breeding Passes

Photographer Unknown - Provided by Bruce Thomas Collection

1/2/18:  Sad news has reached us on the passing of Walt Breeding.  Racing out of Delaware, Walt will always be recognized by racing fans throughout the entire Northeast and beyond as a winning driver, and as a threat to take the victory wherever he ran. 

In addition to his accomplishments as a driver, Walt will be remembered for his fabrication and car building skills.

Author and historian Chad Culver provided the following on hearing of Walt's passing:

"RIP Walt Breeding. I am sad to learn that Walt Breeding passed away today after a long battle with cancer. Walt's offset Weld car was the first race car I remember from my youth!  When I wrote my first book and got a chance to know Walt, I met a childhood hero and true gentleman that took time to answer all my questions. Over the next couple of years I enjoyed many conversations with Walt about many things. Walt was a true racer. He was an inventor, master fabricator, builder, top notch driver, mentor to many, friend to many, businessman, promoter and just an all around cool guy. Walt will be missed by all who were blessed enough to meet him! Godspeed my friend."

I remember seeing Walt race at Volusia County in the early 70's (then called "Barberville") during speedweeks in Florida.  I instantly took a liking to the Taylor and Messick #1, and to Walt's driving style.  I would continue to follow Walt's winning ways in the pages of AARN for many, many years. 

We remember Walt as a both a great racer and fabricator here in The Vault, and we send our sincere condolences to the friends and family of Walt Breeding.

I'll remember Bob as a quiet guy, who, like a lot of great racing talents, let his driving do the talking.

Whitey Kidd III Wins Trenton Indoor Dirt Car Nationals

Whitey Kidd III raced his way from the back to the front, and surprised the entire stadium when he grabbed the lead from a very fast running Alex Bright just after a 2 to go restart, and took the checkered with the front wheels up, in front of a very excited and very appreciative crowd!

Whitey Kidd III waves back to the crowd after taking the very popular win at the Trenton indoor arena.
Click on the banner below for a few more pics:

With the success and the excitement of Saturday night's show featuring 600 Micro Sprints, I think you'll be seeing more indoor racing in NJ in the future....  Congratulations to Whitey Kidd III on an amazing run to the front.  (I don't think there was much wear on the front wheels as they spent most of the race in the air!)
