I recently noticed the name Roger West from Joliet Illinois in an old midget ;program from 1968. I found him in a few midget books and see that he was 1967 UARA champion. There wasn't a lot of information on him. Does any one have some info or stories on him? Jim
Midget racing is big time entertainment.

Roger West drove for my dad, Bob Corson. He started driving for dad mid-season 1966 and 1967 and was UARA Champion. In 1968 Roger went to USAC to race and the only thing I can remember is that he drove the #15 Pizza Hut car I believe from St. Louis.

Roger is still around Joliet. He was at the LAST STAND RACE AT THE STADIUM he stood beside me for the old drivers picture and was looking very much like Roger should look at 86 LOL It's a joke Roger, Roger has competed in many differant series and did very well in all Silver Crown, Sprints, Midgits, and oh yes INDY car attemps, Very good driver and all around good guy.
