Gary Smith is the 2015 elected President of the LLOAR.

Well, Speedweek 2016 is in the record book! What a week it was. Daytona Beach was filled with race fans. All of our Living Legend events set their own records in attendance and sales. Starting with the Beachside Parade we had over 100 cars this year along with several racing celebrities. At the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Show they closed the parking lot because of so many spectators on hand. The Auction was a huge success as was the Awards Banquet.

The Bus Tour did well; we had a luxury bus this year! The Museum was standing room only for Coffee with the Characters. The Modified Reunion at New Smyrna Speedway had more entrants than ever before. You can read more about these events in the following pages. Lots of members and volun-teers put in many long hours to make this such a success. Thank you, thank you, thank you very much to everyone involved. Speedweek is indeed a group effort and all those involved can be very proud of our events. Thank you all again.



Gary Smith, LLOAR President

Living Legends historic bus tour of Daytona

Tuesday, January 3, 2017 by GODWIN KELLY



Passing this information along from our friends at the Living Legends of Auto Racing.
The Living Legends of Auto Racing based in Daytona Beach will once again be doing a bus tour during Speed Week 2017. This year, the tour is scheduled for Friday, February 24 at 8 am leaving from the Living Legends of Auto Racing Museum located at 2400 South Ridgewood Avenue (US 1) in South Daytona in the Sunshine Mall.
You can support the Living Legends of Auto Racing while spending a morning seeing historic racing landmarks around Ormond and Daytona Beach.
You will get a full lecture on the earliest days of the beach runs at the Ormond Garage replica, visit the NASCAR Archives which are filled with memorabilia (formerly closed to the public, and now only accessible via a VIP Daytona International Speedway tour costing $50), see where Bill France Sr. first worked in 1934 and see his first local home.
You will pass the Armory where race cars were inspected prior to beach events, see Marshall Teague’s Pure Oil station building, Bill France Sr.’s gas station on Main St., the Streamline Hotel where NASCAR was formed, and much more.
The tour ends with lunch (included) at Racing’s North Turn Restaurant on Highway A1A near where the race cars from the beach days made the turn from the beach onto the paved highway.
Along with seeing all these historic sites, you will have an opportunity to spend time with a great group of racing fans who are interested in the history of auto racing as much as you are.
To make your reservations, call 386-763-4483. The cost is $50 per person and, again, includes lunch at Racing’s North Turn Restaurant.
At the end of the tour you’ll be invited to browse through the memorabilia and other great items that are all part of the Living Legends of Auto Racing
Museum. Do not miss this great opportunity to relive racing’s past. Seating is limited.

Vote for Ray Fox for the NASCAR Halll of Fame
FOX FACTS
Ray Fox first caught the “racing bug” as a boy watching the racing greats of the 1920’s at the Rockingham, N.H. board track. Ray moved to Florida in 1946 from New Hampshire where he was involved with midget racing before World War II. 1946-1952 - Barnstormed around the south racing modifies with friends Marshall Teague and Fireball Roberts. 1955 - Built a 1955 Buick for Fireball Roberts to race in the 160 mile Daytona Beach Race. The car led every lap and won the race. Ray also worked on the ’40 modified Fireball drive for Fish Carburetor and the “Fox Special” modified for Larry Flynn. 1956 - Won NASCAR Mechanic of the Year award. Ray worked on the Kiekhaefer team, mostly on Herb Thomas’ car. 1957 - 1959 - Worked with Smokey Yunick lending his expertise to Paul Goldsmith’s Chevy’s and Pontiacs and Fireball Roberts’ Pontiacs. 1959 - Built a 1955 Ford modified for Fireball Roberts. It sat on the pole for Daytona Speedway’s first modified race. 1960 - Built the 1959 Chevy which won the 1960 Daytona 500 with Jr. Johnson driving. (Ray built the car in 7 days!) 1961 - Built the Pontiac which took David Pearson to 3 superspeedway wins in1961, the World 600 at Charlotte, Dixie 400 at Atlanta & the Firecracker 250 at Daytona. Ray became the first car owner to win 3 superspeedway races in a single year. Vicki Wood sets the closed course record for women at Atlanta in Ray’s #3 Pontiac. He was mechanic on Chevy of Jimmie Pardue 1962: DarelDieringer drove for Ray. 1963 - Fox built cars sat on the pole 17 times and won 11 Grand National races. This was called “the year of the little Chevy that Ford spent a million dollars trying to catch”. Fox’s cars with Jr. Johnson and Jim Paschal drivingstart side by side on the front row for Daytona’s Firecracker 400. It is believed to be the first time team cars start on the first row for a superspeedway race. Buck Baker also drove for Ray 1964: Ray and “old man” Buck Baker score Baker’s third Southern 500 Win at Darlington. This was Buck Baker’s last win, son Buddy Baker notched his first win with Ray. This gave Ray at least one win on each superspeedway (Atlanta, Charlotte, Daytona & Darlington). 1965: A Fox-built ’65 Dodge, with LeRoy Yarbrough at the wheel, sets a world closed course speed record for stock cars with a blistering lap of 181.818 mph. (the first stock to run over 180 mph.) 1966: Earl Balmer wins one of Daytona’s 100 mile Daytona 500 Qualifying races driving a Ray Fox Dodge. Buddy Arrington also drove for Reay that year. 1967: Buddy Baker wins the World 600, his first Grand National (Cup) victory, driving a Ray Fox Dodge. 1968: Bunkie Blackburn earns the biggest payday of this career as he wheels Ray Fox’s Dodge to win in Daytona’s Permatex 300. 1969: Ray Fox is instrumental in developing the aerodynamic rear window design for Dodge Charger 500 model. It makes the car more competitive on the NASCAR circuit. 1970: Ray Fox builds 3 Dodge Daytona winged cars for the Grand National circuit. Tiny Lund’s #55, Fred Lorenzen’s #3 and #28 “wing things” all are competitive. Dr. Don Tarr sets records with Ray’s winged Dodge Charger. 1971: Ray Fox builds a 1971 Plymouth for Cale Yarborough to drive in the Daytona 500. Cale also drives the car in the 1972 Daytona 500 finishing 6th. The car later wins the 1973 Talladega 500 with Dick Brooks at the wheel. Charlie Glotzbach also drove for Ray. Ray’s cars won hundreds of races in the Sportsman, Modified, and Grand National divisions. He was the first car owner to have cars win on every superspeedway. He is responsible for the careers of Junior Johnson, David Pearson and Buddy Baker. Some of the other drivers, who have warmed Ray’s seats were: Herb Thomas, Paul Goldsmith, Jim Paschal, Earl Balmer, Jim VandiverDarelDieringer, Bunkie Blackburn, Tiny Lund, Fred Lorenzen, Fireball Roberts, CaleYarborough, Marvin Panch, Neil Castles, Wally Dallenbach, G.C. Spencer as well as Indy car driver Art Pollard and Grand Prix driver Innes Ireland. He retired as an engine inspector for NASCAR in 1996. He is an original member of Daytona Speedway’s Checkered Flag Committee, as well as a member of the NMPA’s Hall of Fame, TRW/Western Auto Mechanics Hall of Fame, Jacksonville Speedway Hall of Fame, Daytona’s Oceanside Rotary Hall of Fame and most recently the International Motorsports Hall of Fame at Talladega, Alabama. Ray is President of the Living Legends of Auto Racing, Inc., an organization of over 600 members, based in Daytona Beach, FL, whose purpose is to preserve the history of auto racing both past and present. In 2012 Ray was added to the list of 25 candidates for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Several of Ray’s drivers including Junior Johnson, David Pearson, Buck Baker & Herb Thomas have been inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Sadly, Ray passed away on June 15, 2014 at the age of 98 in Daytona Beach, FL. He was active in racing through the Living Legends up until his passing.

The Most Unlikely Corvette
This 1946 Chevy hot rod truck looks like an old truck on the outside and it is, but with a little closer examination you will find something more. Hung on a custom hand-made 2x4 double frame is a C4 Corvette front suspension and a crate Corvette engine offering the driver a vintage look while enjoying the power and ride of a modern truck. The best of both worlds.
This Vietnam Veteran Tribute Truck has been campaigned in the northeast for the last two years. There are currently thousands of Vietnam Veteran signatures on the truck, but there is plenty of room for many more signatures from us Vietnam Veterans in the southeast.
The truck has been purchased by a company called: The Strongest Memory Wins Research Foundation, LLC and the truck will now live in Daytona Beach. The debut of the truck to the southeast will be Thursday, February 15 during the Day of the Duels Car Show at the Drive-in Church in Daytona Beach Shores.
Vietnam Veterans from the area are invited to attend the car show and stop by the Vietnam Veteran Tribute Truck display area to sign the truck. Vietnam Veterans please come join thousands of your brothers and sisters to be recognized as the great warriors that you are by signing this one-of-a-kind tribute truck.
There is also a special area on the truck for the Gold Star family members to sign for their fallen loved one. Our fallen and their families are never forgotten.
If you are a post-war veteran and you know you are suffering from PTSD, please stop by the truck to be pointed in the right direction to gain the help that you need. The truck is a safe place for you and you will be welcomed there. See you at the show.
If you are a disabled Vietnam Veteran or you know of someone who is and you/they cannot mobilize out to the car show, we will bring the truck to you/them to sign. Just contact us through our website SignTheTruck.org or by calling 386.256.2118 and leave a message for us.
Pre-registration is still available at www.driveinchurch.net/carshow
