Maine's Gardiner Leavitt joins NEAR Hall of Fame

Legendary driver, car owner and Maine native Gardiner Leavitt received another well-deserved honor on Tuesday, as directors of the New England Auto Racers (NEAR) Hall of Fame announced its eight-member Class of 2017.

A diverse group of drivers, car owners, a crew chief and a world-class announcer comprise the new class, raising the total to 225 members enshrined since 1998.

Leavitt will join New Hampshire natives Steve Bird, Bobby Gahan and Russ Wood, Ben Dodge Jr., Tom Dunn and brothers Jeff and Rick Fuller in this year's class. They will be formally inducted Sunday, November 12, at Maneely’s Banquet Hall in South Windsor, Connecticut.
