Congrats To URSS Calhan Feature Winner

Belated congrats to URSS Calhan Feature winner, Brian Hardman of the Golden Colorado racing Hardmans.

Brians Grandfather and Big Car Racing Association Hall of Famer, “Willy” Hardman started in the 40’s in the Midgets and then fielded an Offy Sprinter in the late 50’s through the 60’s with the BCRA.

Father Butch Hardman would leave an indelible mark on Midwest open wheel racing both on the dirt tracks and at Pikes Peak where he competed for over three decades and set a new record in ’93 when he eclipsed the long standing record set by Bob Unser. Brian and Butch were the last upright open wheelers to ever compete at Pikes Peak. Butch still operates “Golden Auto Parts” Willy started over 60 years ago.
