“Toots” Campo of Kansas City, Missouri is shown here behind the wheel of his own Deauchenan (or Deschano) #38-2 Frontenac before the races at the Ozark State Fair at Carthage, Missouri on August 8, 1930.  This was the fastest car in time trials that day but a flat tire forced it out of the heat race and engine trouble ended Campo’s feature race hopes.

          Campo is known to have previously entered this car in races run at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, Kansas on September 17, 1928 and at the Arkansas City Speedway at Arkansas City, Kansas on July 4, 1929.  He probably raced it on other occasions as well.  If you know anything more about “Toots” Campo, please contact Bob Lawrence.
