Sammy Tanner - The Flying Flea

Brilliant bit of history from regular correspondent, Roger F.

From Flattrack.com on Facebook, David Sites posting from the Bob Myers collection. Sammy was #59 before he was #7. He appears to be wearing a t-shirt over his leathers to promote his new record! 

Sammy Tanner was known as 'The Flying Flea', and a Kansas race promoter, was responsible for trying to turn him into a rock star, having Sammy record a 45 (rpm single record) by the same name.

Sideburn interviewed Sammy Tanner for our regular Trophy Queen slot for Sideburn 13. G
