Corvette Museum Names Three Inductees for the 2015 Corvette Hall of Fame

Three individuals who have contributed to the success of Corvette during the past 50-plus years will be honored for their overwhelming dedication and love for America’s Sports Car when they are inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame this fall.

It’s hard to think of three individuals who are more deserving of this honor than these three men, who have gone above and beyond in their love for the Corvette.

The 2015 inductees slated to be honored at the 18th Annual Corvette Hall of Fame Ceremony on Sept. 4 at the National Corvette Museum are Herb Fishel in the category of Racing, Rick Hendrick in the category of Enthusiast, and Russ McLean in the category of GM/Chevrolet.

One of our favorite Corvettes shows we attend religiously is the annual NCRS Winter Regional in Central Florida. This year, the show was held at the Sun ‘n Fun facility in Lakeland, Florida which is a working airport and the site of a huge annual fly-in.

The new location had its good and bad points, but overall we were positive about it as it was a great facility for hosting the Winter Regional Corvette show.

When Tadge Juechter and his crew were busy coming up with the 2015 Corvette Z06, they were probably hoping for somebody just like Gene Sanchez Leeds to climb behind the wheel.
