    Stumbled across this one today, 1978 USAC Midgets at Reading:

    Question, is Shuman running an updated Kurtis Kraft in '78? Or is this just Kurtis style bodywork hung on a contemporary chassis?

    Some good stuff wandering down this rabbit hole. Share your finds.

    That is a Higman chassis that had KK style body. Often referred to as Higgie's Piggys.

      Thanks, that's a little before my time. I've heard of Higgie's Piggys, but never seen one.

            This is very. very cool. 78 was my first year of following USAC so this is like a homecoming of sorts. Thanks!

                      Weird hearing the "Wimbledon" theme for a dirt-track race.

                        Never knew they did these indoor races in the 80's in CA:

                          History Mystery Man has some decent interviews. Jack Hewitt, Karl Kinser, Ken Schrader, Dave Darland.
