I came across this short film on Google video:

Was this person a real driver or is it some kind of movie promo? I haven't got a clue. I vaguely recall reading about a couple of mysterious masked drivers, but they were European. I've never heard of an American one. Early American racing isn't one of my strong points so hopefully someone will be able to enlighten me :drunk:

It was a fictional movie, probaably starring Clark Gable or Mickey Rooney.
