Stropus Scores Motorsports Hall Of Fame Induction

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Judy Stropus still gets a kick sharing the story. A longtime voting member of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, Stropus vividly recalls receiving the ballot to decide the induction class of 2017. And there among the sports car nominees, Stropus quietly read her own name. “When I filled it out, I wrote on the ballot that I’m going to vote for me,’’ Stropus explains deadpan. “I said, ‘No way, this is the sports car category and there are all these famous drivers, how does this happen?’” Stropus recalled. Her boyfriend at that time had a 1950 Jaguar XK120, which he used to teach the teenage Stropus how to drive.
