DeLynn Kale Memorial Stickers

 

"In memory of long-time competitor DeLynn Kale, I'm making some stickers with the design pictured to place on vehicles for next season. I'm trying to figure out how many I'll need, they will be in the 3"x5"- 4"x6" range, and die cut around the oval shape. If you would like to place one, two or more on your vehicle next season, please e-mail me at b_jerew(at)hotmail.com or visit my website for more info at www.wildtimesmotorsports.com. There will be a very small cost associated, but only to cover the production cost. Thanks, Brad Jerew, Wild Times Motorsports, www.wildtimesmotorsports.com"

Art Arfons inducted into "International Motorsports Hall of Fame"...Dec. 6, 2007

Motorsports Hall of Fame to induct six in 2008
December 6, 2007

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Robert "Red" Byron, the first driver to win a NASCAR points championship, is among a diverse group to be inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.

The six-person Class of 2008, announced Thursday, also includes Art Arfons, Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins, Frank Kurtis, Everett "Cotton" Owens and Ralph Seagraves. They will be enshrined on April 24. "This induction class is a perfect example of what makes the International Motorsports Hall of Fame so unique," said Talladega Superspeedway President and IMHOF Executive Director Rick Humphrey.

"With this class we are honoring drivers, an owner, a fabricator, an engine builder and a promoter. These men comprise the building blocks of all motorsports."

Byron, who died in 1960, got his start in the early 1930s in unorganized races in Talladega. He won the first NASCAR sanctioned race on the Daytona beach-road course on February 15, 1948. Byron ran in six races in 1949, winning two and earning 842.5 points to win the first NASCAR points championship.

Arfons, who died Monday at age 81, was best known for setting the unlimited Land Speed Record three times in his "Green Monster" racers. He also made significant contributions to drag racing, tractor pulling and powerboat racing during a five-decade career.

In the mid-1950s, Jenkins produced many of drag racing's most successful vehicles. Considered the "Father of Pro Stock," Jenkins built engines for 61 NHRA Eliminators, producing five championships and three ARHA championships.

As a driver, he won 13 NHRA national Pro Stock events from 1965-75 with one championship as a driver.

Kurtis never drove in a race, but his Kurtis-Kraft firm produced some 550 midgets in kit and "ready to run" forms. The combination of the Kurtis chassis powered by a smaller version of the famous Offenhauser engine was highly successful for more than 20 years.

Owens won more than 100 NASCAR Featherlite Modified Tour races during the 1950s before making the transition to the NASCAR Grand National series. As a car owner and driver, Owens' career statistics include 41 wins and 38 poles in 487 races.

Seagraves, who died in 1998, helped initiate the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco sponsorship of motorsports in the 1970s. Seagraves was president of Reynolds' Special Events Operations, now known as Sports Marketing Enterprises, from 1972 until his retirement in January 1985.
