Another midget legend, still alive and living in Florida. Instrumental in the medical and safety development in US single-seaters in the 1980's. Carter returned to Indianapolis in 2011 to appear in the historic car display to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the '500. Neal got into the sport by noticing a poster advertising a midget race whilst riding his motorcycle and was hooked - but went to his mother for a loan to buy a car. She agreed thinking it would be a road car to get him off the bike... only later did she realise she'd bought him a race car! Neal soon paid her back with many a midget win, before retiring in 1955 to concentrate on raising his family.
