Indianapolis based youngster who had a brief post-World War 2 career in sprint and dirt cars. Biographical detail is hard to come by for Boggs. Prior to his Indianapolis 500 attempt, a number of photos were taken of him by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He entered his own Offy-powered car, with support from the Century Tires and Perfect Circle Piston Ring businesses. However he failed to qualify and appeared to stop racing as a result. An earlier newspaper report refers to him as a dirt track racer who raced in the late 1930's.
