Lenny Low owned a machine shop and a York forklift dealer possibly in Hayward, California.[1]

In the early to mid 1940s Bayliss Levett owned the 404 Hisso Sprint Car. He crashed it and had Lenny completely rebuild it. After rebuilding the car, Lenny raced it for Bayliss. According to Austin Thornton, Bayliss ended up selling the Hisso to a body shop around 1946-47. The shop still had Lenny race it for them. Some people believe the Low Quick-change Axle in Joe and Jerry Valdez's 1921 Ford Model T Roadster might come from the Hisso sprint car or shared parts.[1]

He won a 25 lap feature race in front of a crowd of 5400 at San Jose Speedway in July of 1948.[1]

Lenny sold everything he had in the early 1950s to move to Nevada for his forklift business.[1]
