Elton, Doc. Doc Elton was created by Cliff Farrell (Jimmy Quick) and appeared in a number of stories in Short Stories in 1931, possibly beginning with “Checkered Flag” (Short Stories, May 10 1931).
Doc Elton is an aging (well past forty) race car driver, although he is still “topnotch.” But in a race a younger driver behaves badly, and Elton crashes and is left unable to race again. Elton eventually retrains himself to race, beats the man who caused him to crash, and goes on to win various other races.
