The Villages Motor Racing Fan Club Hall of Fame

The Villages Motor Racing Fan Club has been truly fortunate to have a number of stars and spokespeople from the world of motor racing join us to share their experiences. Through these great folks, we've been able to achieve our objective of continually bringing varying content to our meetings, and we've been able to fulfill our mission of covering a wide variety of motor racing venues. We've addressed stock car racing on both dirt and asphalt, drag racing, sports car racing, and even airplane and boat racing, proving that we are truly generic "motorheads." After all, racing is racing!

To recognize those great people who have graced us with their presence, we established our Hall of Fame and have instituted an annual recognition event that serves to honor those who have spent time with us and who have gone beyond the call, so to speak, to share their expertise with us. In case you missed the earlier postings of our Hall of Fame inductees, you can look back on the groups we've inducted so far. It is an honor to be associated with these racing icons and ambassadors of the sport, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them in the years ahead! Our Hall of Fame now includes 136 members, and we expect to see it continue growing along with our club.
