MidWest Division SCCA Formula A 1965
There were at least two Formula A cars present in the Midwest Division, as Bud Morley of Denver, Colorado, had converted a 2-litre Elva Mk 7 - BMW to single-seater form and Harry McIntosh had an Elva of some description fitted with a 2.7-litre Chevrolet Corvair flat-6 engine.
Morley raced his car in the Colorado Grand Prix at his local track, Continental Divide, in May 1965 and McIntosh finished fifth at Juarez in November 1965 in his car. It is not known if either also ran in SCCA Divisional or Regional racing.

Midwest Division sources
Race results for Midwest Division Nationals from 1970 to 1978 have been kindly provided by veteran MiDiv historian Rocky Entriken. We also have some background information from Competition Press up to about 1973, when its interest in such events waned considerably, but we know little of the goings-on away from these events and are are keen to acquire or borrow 1960s, 1970s and 1980s copies of SCCA regional publications from this Division. The key ones are:
- Checkpoint (Kansas City Region)
- Course Record (Arkansas Region)
- The Echo (Southern Illinois Region)
- Exhaust Notes (Nebraska) - full archive available at nrsccahistory.com.
- Gasket Gazette (Oklahoma Region)
- Neokla Observer (NE Oklahoma Region), renamed Sports Car Observer in 1980
- The Offside Undo (Kansas Region)
- Redline (Colorado Region)
- Steerin’ Column (Mid-South Region)
- Wheelspin (St. Louis Region)
- Witches Wail (Wichita Region)
We are also keen to get scans of entry lists from SCCA Nationals for this division.
