The Olympics? At the Fair?

Not exactly…Fred Kenney brought his Official Motor Olympics to the Fair in ’57. The roster included performers who hailed from countries around the world and 1956 “Stunt Man of the Year” Bill Ward. Ward’s car was shot out of a canon traveling 85 feet over the track. Two sold out Grandstand shows were accompanied by a parade of new 1957 Fords provided by West Herr Motors.
