Red Farwell

Red Farwell is mentioned in several of the photos I previously posted about from Peppy's album. I loved that the clipping below mentions Farwell's BSA Gold Star in a fashion that makes it sound so exotic.

The pwnmom article I previously referenced about the Death Head Derby mentions that Red later raced nationally and finished 2nd at Daytona in 1952. Tragically Red hit a spectator crossing the track during the Daytona race the following year. Both Red and the spectator later died from the injuries they sustained.
