Five miles east on 16th Street, Martindale-Brightwood neighbors hear the roar of Interstate 70, which the government cut through their midst 50 years ago. In the '20s and '30s, Charlie Wiggins was known as the "Negro Speed King." Between 1926 and 1934, he won the prestigious Gold and Glory Sweepstakes, the national championship for Black drivers, four times. His secret was engineering his "Wiggins Special" to run on a mixture of gasoline and jet fuel. He could run the entire 100-mile race on one tank of fuel.Wiggins was a sought-after mechanic and in 1928 drove a test-run in his car that his friend Harry MacQuinn was going to race. White fans mobbed the pit at Kentucky Speedway, angry that a Black man was driving, and police took him into protective custody. A police report said his arrest was for "speeding." He never got to drive in his hometown's signature race. Bill Cummings won the race in 1934 with Wiggins as his mechanic, though Cummings' Boyle Products team had to sneak Charlie into the speedway by claiming he was their janitor. In 1991, Willy T. Gibbs became the first Black driver to compete in the Indy 500. The Pinkerton Raid extends a special thank-you to Joanna Taft and City Gallery for hosting us in their 48-hr Songwriting Residency and to Shirley Webster, who has lived in Martindale-Brightwood since 1943 and watched the construction of Interstate 70 split her neighborhood.
