Corvette Museum Announces 2014 Hall of Fame Inductees
A writer, an engineer and a driver are the 2014 inductees into the National Corvette Museum Hall of Fame in Bowling Green. The museum announced the inductees this week.
Jerry Burton has written multiple books including “Zora Arkus Duntov: The Legend Behind Corvette” and “Corvette: America’s Sports Car: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”. He was also the founding editor and editorial director of Corvette Quarterly magazine and motorsports editor for AutoWeek. He’ll be joined in the Hall of Fame by John Heinricy who was both a driver and a Corvette engineer. He won 11 Sports Car Club of America national championships as a driver and oversaw production of the C4 through 1996. Dave MacDonald was one of the drivers of the 1963 Stingray in the “Biography of a Sports Car” national ad campaign. He won 47 of the 110 races in which he competed, but died at the age of 27 after a violent crash at the 1964 Indianapolis 500.
A ceremony honoring the three inductees is set for Aug. 28, 2014. The celebration will mark the museum’s 20th anniversary.
