Willard Lee Bodkins

1928 – 2009




Willard Bodkins of Winfield, Kansas is shown here in a Ford sedan he drove to victory in the B feature on August 30, 1950 at the Cowley County Fairgrounds at Winfield, Kansas.






The car actually looked like this when Bodkins won that B feature.
Joe Collins had wrecked it a few times at Cejay Stadium in Wichita, Kansas (see below) and Bodkins had to get it running again again before he could race it at Winfield.
