@Richard: Would you be so kind and check your source for the birth details you give for Al Putnam (06 May 1910 Tulare, California)?

MotorsportMemorial & ChampCarStats say that his full name was Adelbert William Putnam and he was born in 1907 or 1908 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

FindAGrave shows a tombstone


with the inscription Putnam Adelbert “Al” 1908 1946.

And I found two sources – this and that – which let me believe that Al Putnam was in fact born in Salt Lake City on 09 October 1908. (You find this specific date in the first link - it needs a bit of scrolling.)

I checked where the original information came from and it appears the source has found something that fits, but it isn't fully backed up by another source that it is THE Al Putnam. So, I'm happy to change the record accordingly.
