Relive the memories of dirt track racing in Nebraska during the 1950s and 1960s as you walk through the Start Your Engines exhibit at the Nebraska History Museum! See racing in its heyday through the eyes of professional photographer and dirt track racer Harold Mauck. Mauck lived life in the fast lane. The professional photographer, amateur race car driver, and pilot was born the family farm west of Plainview in Pierce County in 1921. After serving in the Airforce during WWII, he returned to Plainview and opened a photography studio. Harold’s passion for racing and his love of photography perfectly blended together to create this collection of photographs unlike anything in the Midwest. See what racing looked like through his eyes now through August 31st, 2019!
