Event Details

Quarter Mile Foundation to host Linda Vaughn Roast

A Tribute to Miss Hurst Golden Shifter


The Quarter Mile Foundation will pay tribute to the "First Lady of Motorsports," Linda Vaughn, with a roast which will be hosted at the "Sports Castle" facility at the very exclusive Lucas family estate in Carmel, Ind., on Wednesday, August 29, preceding the NHRA's Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at the Lucas Oil Raceway/Indianapolis (August 29-September 3, 2012). 

The event will feature roasters from across the wide range of the North American motorsports community – Drag Racing, IndyCar, NASCAR – as well as the automakers and performance aftermarket companies commenting on the life and times of Linda, her contributions and impact upon motorsports and the performance aftermarket for the past 50-plus years.  In addition to the Roast, an auction of donated items from friends in the aftermarket, drag racing, IndyCar and NASCAR will be held. The auction will include a silent auction during the cocktail hour, and live bidding on select items between the presentations of the roasters.
