ANDERSON, Ind. – Two Little 500 car owners and a mechanic are slated for induction into the Little 500 Hall of Fame on May 23 as part of the week of festivities leading up to the 72nd annual Pay Less Little 500 presented by UAW.

The Class of 2020 will be formally inducted at a luncheon at Anderson Speedway the afternoon of the Little 500.

This year’s Little 500 Hall of Fame Class of 2020 includes Dick Fuller, Jason Goacher, and Mark “Moe” McKeague.

From Massillon, Ohio, Dick Fuller fielded 11 entries as a car owner from 1994-2001, with drivers Gary Griffith, Eric Gordon, and Dog Saunier.

He won the race in 1999 with Chet Fillip, his cars completed 4,674 laps and they scored four top-five finishes, as well as led two races for a combined 255 laps.

Fuller passed away on June 19, 2002.

From Anderson, Ind., Jason Goacher is a second-generation Little 500 car owner, who to-date has fielded 13 entries since 1990 for drivers Tray House, Tony Hunt, Kevin Thomas Jr., Bentley Warren and more.
