Art’s daughter, Judy Pollard Dippel, sits in #31 sprint car Art drove in the past, now restored with its original Hemi engine (on display at WoS). Car builder/owner, Del McClure with Judy in the photo reflected on Art’s driving style, “Art was pushing all the time trying to find a hole to drive through the field. He was always charging, but using his head while he did it. Art was a hard driver, but you also have to be smart if you are going to make your living that way.”
Art’s daughter, Judy Pollard Dippel, makes a video presentation at the first annual “Art Pollard Day in May” event in May of 2016, honoring her father’s racing career and his commitment to the children at LaRue Carter Hospital in Indianapolis).
