The St. Cricq Hisso

These two photos were taken of the same two men at about the same time.  The photo below appeared in a Dallas, Texas area newspaper with the caption:

"Ben Musick, well known midget race driver, will be among the entries when big car racing returns to Houston at Epsom Downs Sunday afternoon.  He is shown here looking over the fast Hisso job owned by Marcel "Pop" St. Cricq, shown at right.  Musick, who has been driving in the big car class under the name of "Wild Bill" Morris, will step on the throttle of a track-burning Cragar job.  He holds the mile dirt track record of 32 seconds set in Illinois last year."
