Earl Kiser Portrait

Earl Kiser was one of America's early professional auto racing drivers and a chief rival to his much more well-known contemporary, Barney Oldfield. Kiser succeeded Oldfield on Alexander Winton's Bullet II race car when Barney and Winton had a falling out. Kiser was also a colleague of Indianapolis Motor Speedway founder Carl Fisher. Kiser's career was short-lived when he lost one of his legs after crashing the Bullet at the Glenville horse track near Cleveland.
