Loyal Katskee began his racing career much later than many of his contemporaries. It was, however, his love of foreign cars that generated an interest in the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). His interests turned to international sports car racing at that point. From 1953 to 1962 he lived a dream, racing such nameplates as Jaguar, Ferrari, Porsche, MG, Maserati, Lotus and several other marquees all over the country at such glamorous places like Daytona, Sebring, Riverside, Nassau, the Bahamas and Havana, Cuba. Katskee was instrumental in managing the 1953 SCCA National races at Offutt Air Force Base, which drew a crowd of 55,000 -- the largest attendance of a race in Nebraska racing history. Katskee passed away November 12, 1985. He was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 2001.
