On This Day


Saturday 14th October 1933

88 years ago

Johnny Gerber competed in and won his last race in Bel Air, Maryland, US. Johnny was a top "outlaw" sprint car driver in the 1920s and early 1930s. After giving up driving, he continued to own race cars and build specialised connecting rods for racing engines. His wife Rose kept meticulous records of his racing career. The notes became the basis of his autobiography, “Outlaw Sprint Car Racer” which was published in 1992. That same year Johnny was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa, US.
