      Jim Reid was the car owner for most of Rex McCroskey’s Dirt Late Model Racing Career, They ran GRT Race Cars most, Rex McCroskey was the driver and they ran Hatfield Racing Engines the most.

      Tammy thank you for your interest in the NDLMHoF. Please fill out a public nomination ballot on Gerald Dixon’s career and send it to us.

  13. Larry Andrus Says:

    I just emailed a public nomination form for Rex McCroskey to you. I believe he raced Dirt Late Models for 20+ years. I know he was a 3 time MLRA Points Champion but as far as wins I am guessing he won around 800 features and won around 20 Track Championships. Here is some pictures of Rex’s cars and visits to victory lane.

    I would like to nominate Berthold Robidoux,better known to all in the racing world,as BERT TRANSMISSIONS.He is the one that started it all,(the manufacture of the racing type internal clutch transmission)95% of the dirt late model racers have used this type of unit at one time or another.

    He should be in the category of a contributor,and is well deserved.

    Thank You:

    • ndlmhof Says:

    Blaine Aber from Wooster Ohio is the driver I’d like to nominate….He has been racing late models for 50 yrs…..he would have celebrated 51 this year but has had motor issues and still might make late season….He has won 8 track championships at 3 different tracks such as Wayne Co Speedway,Muskingum, Lakeville….He has also held the Stars Latemodel Series Rookie of the year award….he’s inducted in the Wayne County Speedway Hall of Fame as well….Most of his career he’s finished in the top five every night out… I wrenched for him 20 years…Even know he’s still a fan favorite
