Noel Bullock began his racing career in 1918. He built his own bob-tail racer and immediately started winning races on the dirt tracks of the area. In the early 1920s, Bullock, with his Rajo-Ford Special, won at least 80 races in the Midwest and in 1922, the “Kid” from Nebraska beat the best by winning the Pikes Peak Hill Climb in his own creation. Bullock moved to Los Angeles, Calif., after the 1924 racing season and continued to race at Banning, Legion Ascot and other California tracks. Bullock was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 2000.
