The dictionary defines a Champion as one who fights for a cause; defender; protector and valiant fig...hter. Dick Jordan may have never driven or own a midget, but never the less he is still a Champion of Midget racing.
Racing has always been a part of Dick’s life; he attended races with his parents in the early 50’s. In 1968 he was hired to work at the United States Auto Club, where he worked for forty plus years. Regardless of his job description, one thing never changed his love and devotion to the sport.
Dick was one of the founding members of the National Midget Auto Racing Hall and served on its Board, and as an officer of the organization. Dick is one of the few officials who have been inducted into both the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame.
