Tom Bigelow was born in Whitewater, Wisconsin, USA and began his racing career with the Badger Midget Racing Association at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.
He started racing in the National Championship in 1967 finishing 18th in the points. In 1968 he took two wins at Hales Corner, Wisconsin and at Sycamore, Illinois driving a very famous and very old midget owned by John Hajduk.

Clearly one of the finest open-wheel drivers of all time, Tom Bigelow remains the winningest sprint car driver in United States Auto Club history. Born in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, the driver who always called Whitewater, Wisconsin home, still occasionally races stock cars. He started his career in the Badger Midget Auto Racing Assn. in 1959 and won the Sun Prairie, Wisconsin championship in 1964. Bigelow, now 71, went on to race in USAC, winning the National Sprint Car Series Championship in 1978 and the National Midget Series title in 1985. At one time, his popularity was so strong that a "Tom Bigelow Fan Club" was formed, based out of Springfield, Illinois. Tom is the all-time winningest sprint car driver in USAC competition, with 52 victories in the division. And at one time, he also set the world's record at Winchester Speedway, getting around its treacherous high banks in 15.689 seconds. An additional 23 midget triumphs and six victories in Silver Crown place him fifth on the overall all-time USAC winner's list with 81 victories. Always one to thank the fans in any interview, Tom never forgot his followers. Bigelow also posted scores of victories with other sanctioning bodies, and went on to race IndyCars as well. He made nine starts in the Indianapolis 500, with a best finish of sixth in 1977. He was also eighth in 1980. Racing under the CART banner, Bigelow made 20 starts, with a pair of fifth place finishes. He was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1996. Tom now lives in Winchester, Indiana where he runs a racing school. One of the few drivers who is also a spectator, he is still seen in the stands at local races.
