The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America will be CLOSED for one day only, SUNDAY, JULY 4th, to give our amazing team a little rest and the opportunity to spend Independence Day with their families. You can see the amazing John Greenwood Stars 'N Stripes IMSA Corvette and a whole bunch of other treasures of American motorsports history at our place today through Saturday, then resuming July 5th and everyday thereafter. From L to R, that's John's brother Burt, seated, next to John's grandkids and their dad, John's son. Great photo from Thomas R.

Not many know that the Birthplace of the Novi Special was also the birthplace of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. A group of community leaders, including our founder Larry Ciancio, got together in the mid-1980s to brainstorm ways to promote the Detroit suburb. Someone mentioned the legendary Indianapolis racers that came from Lew Welch's shop. First the town acquired an original Novi from Andy and Vincent Granatelli, then decided there should be a hall of fame for motorsports. Voila! Now Ciancio, with help from PPG, is leading the effort to restore the town's world-famous "Home of the Novi Special" water tower. We'll post updates! #heroesofhorsepower #motorsportshof #MSHF #daytonabeach #novimichigan #novispecial #lewwelch #dukenalon #BobbyUnser #LarryCiancio #watertower #motorsportslegends #Indy500 #IndyCar

Inductees Peter Gregg (Class of 2000) and Hurley Haywood (Class of 2005) are surrounded by race queens after winning the 1975 24 Hours of Daytona. With many 1974 events cancelled due to the energy crisis, the 1975 race was the first time IMSA sanctioned the 24. Sadly, there were no prototypes running in IMSA at the time, but the event attracted 51 over-and-under 2.5 liter GT cars. Twenty-one were Porsches, prompting some to start to refer to events like this as a "Porsche Parade." The Porsche factory had an extensive customer support program and produced a lot of race cars, making the German marque a dominant force. The factory even arranged for a fully stocked Porsche parts trailer to show up at every IMSA event. Now how about a trivia question to test your racing knowledge: What happened in 1976 that shortened the Daytona race to less than 24 Hours? Text courtesy Louis Galanos.

The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America wishes a very Happy Birthday to 1990 inductee 3-time NHRA Top Fuel Champion Shirley Muldowney. Not just one of the greatest drag racers ever, but someone who changed the entire sport in the process — and how many racers can say that? A true legend, captured here in this magnificent photo by Steve Reyes, one of the greatest drag racing photographers ever. #motorsportshof #MSHF #daytonabeach #NHRA #daytonainternationalspeedway #visitflorida #heroesofhorsepower #dragracing #dragracingphotos #hemi #champion #legend #shirleymuldowney

People ask us how the beautiful bronze plaques of every Hall of Famer get made. The answer for about five years now has been the incomparable Gabriel Vinas. We can only show you part of his work on Class of 2021 inductee John Cobb because no one gets to see the finished plaques until they're unveiled at the Heroes of Horsepower event that's part of every induction. As yyou can see, Gabe is an exceptionally gifted sculptor. We are incredibly grateful for his work. #heroesofhorsepower #motorsportshof #MSHF #daytonabeach #daytonainternationalspeedway #visitflorida

Appearing daily at the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America on the grounds of Daytona International Speedway: Jim Bartel's jaw-dropping "knee high" Shadow Mk.I. No, not as it appeared at the first Can-Am race in 1970. How it was originally designed by the brilliant Trevor Harris under the auspices of Shadowman Don Nichols, using a system of five air brakes to assist the tiny brakes in the tiny front wheels. If you ask nicely, one of the docents will demonstrate the air brakes for you, as seen in this great Thomas A. Miller Photography gif. A cool, never-before-seen part of motorsports history. #motorsportshof #MSHF #heroesofhorsepower #innovation #theshadowknows #DonNichols #TrevorHarris #GeorgeFollmer #VicElford #CanAmSeries #CanAm50 #heroesofhorsepower #daytonabeach #daytonainternationalspeedway

Congratulations from the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (MSHFA) to Helio Castroneves, Meyer-Shank Racing and Honda on an incredible victory in today's 105th running of the Indianapolis 500. The win was Helio's record-tying fourth Indy 500 victory and places him in rare company with A.J. Foyt (MSHFA Class of 1989), Al Unser Sr. (MSHFA Class of 1991) and Rick Mears (MSHFA Class of 1998) as the only four-time winners of the 500-mile classic at the Brickyard. The victory gives Helio even more to talk about when he presides over the MSHFA Class of 2020 as the Honorary Chairperson for that illustrious group's induction in the first night of a dual celebration in Detroit, Monday, September 27, at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan.

Peter Revson was inducted into the MSHOF in 1996. Born in 1939 to the co-founder of the cosmetics giant Revlon he frequently downplayed that connection and bristled at inevitable media characterizations that he was a playboy heir to a great fortune.

He got hooked on racing while living in Hawaii in 1960 and racing in SCCA events. In 1963 he moved to Europe to pursue a serious professional career in racing and eventually began to be offered rides with Lotus-BRM, by Ford driving their GT40s and then American Motors in the Trans-Am series back in America.
Revson was a multi-talented racer having driven sports cars, Indy cars as well as Formula One cars. He won the Can-Am championship in 1971, and after joining the McLaren F1 team in 1972 was ranked fifth in the championship that year and in 1973 won at Silverstone and Mosport.

The attached photos show Revson as a driver for the factory Alfa Romeo team that raced at the Daytona 6-Hour event in 1972 and the Sebring 12 Hours the same year.

Revson’s career came to a tragic end at Kyalami in South Africa on March 22, 1974, due to a suspension failure while testing an F1 shadow. He was only 35 years of age at his passing.

Posting here as you are likely interested. Couldn't find the International FB page. Back in the 1960s, my father, documented Art Arfton and his Green Monster at Bonneville Salt Flats and turned it into a movie. The film was digitized in 2005 and I've only recently looked at it with thoughts you might be interested. It needs some restoration work, but you should enjoy it. ttps://youtu.be/97eUqkwhEW8
Ninth annual Historic North Turn Legends Beach Parade - February 8, 2020 in Ponce Inlet, Fla.
