The seventh annual Kentucky Motorsports Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held October 25th at 2:00 p.m. CST at the SpeedZeum, inside the Owensboro Museum of Science and History in downtown Owensboro. The public is invited to attend.
Topping the class of 2014 is Covington native Jack Roush, who is scheduled to be on hand (unless his health prevents him that day.) Roush’s motorsports career has spanned the upper echelon of NASCAR, drag racing, sports car racing and automotive aftermarket engineering and development. His teams have won more than 300 races and championships across NASCAR’s top three divisions, championships in each of three major drag race sanctioning bodies and more than 100 races and 24 national sports car championships.
Owensboro’s own Hal Miller will also be recognized. He built the Owensboro Drag Strip in 1958 and later Windy Hollow Speedway in 1970, playing host to the Waltrip and Green brothers.
The 2014 class also includes Louisville natives Chuck Winders, Bob Taylor, Carl Casper and Chub Lorah, and the V.V. Cooke race team.
The Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the history and recognizing Kentuckians who have made vast and varied contributions to all forms of racing and motorsports.
