MidWest Division SCCA Formula B 1966
MidWest saw a boom in Formula C in 1966 and also saw some signs of life in FB, with Hank Candler enjoying great success in his LeGrand.
The only cars to go to the Runoffs were Candler's and Chuck Trowbridge's LeGrands, but Candler failed to start. Both Candler and Trowbridge would later try their hand at Formula A.

Midwest Division sources
Although Competition Press was more concerned with west coast and east coast events, the major midwest events were covered reasonably well. However, 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.
