Foxco To Host SCIRA Panel


KNOXVILLE, Iowa — The National Sprint Car Museum will be taking its popular “Sprint Car 101” forums on the road as NSCHoF inductee Galen Fox and his sons, Brad and Steve, will host “Remembering the South Central Indiana Racing Ass’n Dec. 12 at the Foxco Enginering shop in Avon, Ind.

The panel, which coincides with the PRI trade show, will be hosted by open-wheel racing historians Dr. Pat Sullivan and Dave Argabright.

“Ron Scheffel and his son Derek, and Galen Fox and his boys Brad and Steve, have really stepped up to the plate to make this panel discussion a reality,” said Tom Schmeh, museum curator. “We plan to have people like Richard ‘Butch’ Wilkerson, Allen Barr, Galen Fox, Danny Smith and others on-hand to tell stories about the good old days of the SCIRA.

I hope multi-time SCIRA champion Bob Kinser is up to joining us that night as well. We are also encouraging people to bring their own lawn-chairs to make sure that we will have enough seats for everybody. With Pat Sullivan and Dave Argabright as moderators, you won’t want to miss this special presentation of Sprint Car 101, which is being held in conjunction with the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show in Indianapolis.”
