Charles Steadman


Morton, MS

Jackson International Speedway - 1968 Picture donated by Billy Powell

This car was driven by Charles Steadman of Morton Mississippi. Mr Steadman rolled this car at the Jackson Sports Arena in 1962 and almost cut off his right hand. This picture of the 4-S was taken the day after his accident. Born to race, it was not long before Charles was back on the track racing his brother Bill Steadman. As a result of this accident Charles could not bend the index finger on his right hand. This can be seen in the picture above taken at JIS. In later years Charles went on to be elected Mayor of Morton.
