The lure of Land Speed Racing to me personally is the ability of the common
man to design, build, and drive his own car into the record books...

for us to have continued success and for the sport to continue into the
next millenium we have to support and publicize our efforts... The
International Motor Sports Hall of Fame is simply another venue to
Highlight our efforts.. 

With all of that garbage out of the way It is my opinion that the one
person who truly epitomizes our character is Al Teague.. he is a world
renown racer who on a budget has sought out a Record and tirelessly went
after it... Limited budgets and engineering has not stopped him from
attaining his goal.  Al Teague is in my opinion the consummate Hot

This is only my opinion and I am truly open to your suggestions... 

Keith Turk 
Austin Healey 100  /  Bugeye / Box Sprite / Bonneville Land Speed Racer
