John McCarthy
Car Owner
Class of 2007

     

McCarthy helped to establish the image the Northeastern Midget Association continues to hold as a car owner and officer. With drivers Lou Fray and Dave Humphey he won many features and three owner championships. As president in the 1960s and 70s, he brought about a partnership with other forms of a racing that enabled the Midgets to survive. He also “opened up” the sport with his role in the introduction of the Badger.
