Aero Warrior Mini Meet - May 10th 2003
Keokuk Iowa Race Car Driver Reunion
Don White, Ramo Stott, Dick Hutcherson, Lem Blankenship, Ernie Derr - what do these guys have in common? They all call Keokuk Iowa their home town. And they all raced or were involved with the cars we love.
Located in the extreme southeast corner of Iowa on the Mississippi River, Keokuk Iowa was a hotbed of racing activity in the 1960's and '70's, with possibly more name drivers than anywhere outside of NASCAR country. The sign you see above once hung at the city limits of Keokuk. It's was saved, and is now in a private collection. The people of Keokuk are getting together to honor these men on May 10th, and we have been invited to participate with a display of our Aero Warriors.
Again, here are the drivers expected to attend:
