Otto Ramer

Otto Ramer became one of the first midget car owners in the Midwest. Ken Beckley won many races in the mid-1930s driving Ramer’s Harley-Davidson-powered car, with Arn Ferking and Erwin Svoboda also driving the car to several wins before World War II. After the war, Ramer purchased an Offenhauser-powered midget and the “Ramer Offy” became one of the most feared by other owners, and one of the most prized by drivers that were able to get behind the wheel. Some of the men who steered the “Ramer Offy” to victories were Jay Booth, Buzz Barton and Bob Parker. After midget racing became less popular in the Midwest, Ramer built racing engines for all kinds of racing applications, including stock cars, sports cars, IndyCars, boats and motorcycles. Ramer passed away on August 14, 1968. He was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 1999.
