 Western Racing Association (WRA)

The Western Racing Association (WRA) is a non-profit corporation, dedicated to the preservation of antique automobile racing cars and fellowship. Most of the active members have been involved in racing for many years and were part of the heyday of the mighty midgets that raced at tracks throughout the country. 
WRA cars are vintage racecars without roll cages and sporting narrow tires that raced in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. They are powered by the same Ford passenger car V8/60 Flathead engines of 1937-1940, the famous four-cylinder Meyer-Drake Offenhauser racing engines that dominated midget racing from 1937 to 1962,  Model A and B Ford conversions engines that used castor oil in their gas before modern day alcohol was available, and an occasional Ferguson, Studebaker or other historic engine. Many of these cars are restored Kurtis Kraft racers, the premier choice of open-wheel midget car collectors.

    

  

The "Moving Museum," as WRA is referred to, exhibits these beautiful midget and sprint cars at numerous tracks throughout California, with excursions into Arizona and Nevada, to the delight of racing fans young and old alike.

  

In general, 15 exhibition events are presented each year at tracks like Calistoga, El Cajon, Madera, Merced, Santa Maria, San Bernardino and Tulare to name a few. Whenever they appear, the thrill of the roar of the mighty "Offies" can be experienced.
