Eddie Kracek

Eddie Kracek started his racing career in 1928 driving stock cars, and by 1935 he had become a star on the fledgling midget circuits in the Omaha area. By 1937, he was racing on the national stage against some of the top midgeteers in the country. Kracek was one of the first “outsiders” to win at Olympic Stadium in Kansas City, and competed very successfully for several years. Shortly before the U.S. put a stop to racing in 1942 because of World War II, Kracek was badly injured in a race at Olympic. He passed way two weeks later on August 4, 1942.

Eddie Kracek's nephew Ed Krajicek and niece Shirley Morin.
