Ran a TV and electrical shop in Indianapolis after racing. Holmes lived near the Indianapolis Speedway as a boy, which fired his enthusiasm for the sport. He served briefly in the US Navy during World War 2, and once hostilities finished, he began midget racing - in Indiana during the summer, and Florida during the winter. But it was in sprint cars that he excelled, racing in them until an accident and subsequent medical problems led to retirement in 1953.
