Born in 1953 and starting his racing career in the early ‘70s, Al Humphrey became a fixture of late model racing in the Midwest, showing up to take on and beat the big boys – at times with just a skeleton pit crew and a modest trailer. At his peak, Humphrey was the man to beat at Mid-Nebraska Speedway where he won a total of five track championships. “The Hombre” took his winning ways elsewhere, claiming track championships at Red Cloud’s Speed Bowl, Lexington and I-80 Speedway. He won the inaugural Spec (now Super) Late Model Racing Series season championship in 2008. Humphrey is a life-long Nebraskan and currently farms near Giltner.
