Leo Cecil Wright


Cecil Wright of Russell Springs, Kansas drove his #99 Wright Special in races at Oakley, Kansas in 1926.  By 1928, he had vacated the driver’s seat and let Lee Hillery of Winona, Kansas drive the car.  The image of the car on this tombstone in the Russell Springs Cemetery at Russell Springs, Kansas was taken from an old photograph in the Wright family’s possession.  Click your mouse on the photograph to see a close-up of the image of the Wright Special – Bob Clark photos
