New York State Stock Car Association Hall of Fame

The New York State Stock Car Association (NYSSCA) was incorporated in 1969. Its members include competitors, fans, speedway personnel and members of the media dedicated to the improvement of auto racing throughout New York State and western Vermont.

Originally concerned with rules, speedway purses and insurance matters, NYSSCA’s primary focus now is its nationally known injured member benefit fund. Other missions include educating the public on racing’s influence in the community, addressing environmental issues and promoting racing safety. Additionally, outstanding performances in all racing divisions are recognized at NYSSCA’s annual awards banquet.

2014 New York State Stock Car Association Hall of Fame Indcutees

Each year since 1984, members of the New York State Stock Car Association have nominated outstanding contributors to the sport of auto racing for membership in the NYSSCA Hall of Fame. Nominees are considered and voted on by a select committee, with those elected then inducted into the Museum’s Hall of Fame. Members include drivers, car owners, mechanics, promoters, speed shop operators, officials and others who have distinguished themselves in the sport. For most, it is an honor of a lifetime.
