USAC Hall Of Famer Galen Fox, 84

— Galen Fox, a champion car owner, mechanic, engine builder and crew chief in the USAC ranks for more than half a century and a member of both the National Sprint Car and USAC Halls of Fame, died on April 29. 56, Sheldon Kinser picked up the team’s first USAC National Sprint Car victory in 1975 at Schererville, Indiana’s Illiana Motor Speedway. Kinser carried onward and topped the field in the 1977 USAC National Sprint Car title race for Fox and Hammond’s Gohr Distributing team. At the dawn of the decade of the 1990s, Fox and Hammond built Foxco Engineering to supply custom engine work to sprint car and USAC Silver Crown teams. Fox’s legacy continues to live on to this day with sons Brad and Steve Fox, who’ve collected a combined 19 USAC National Sprint Car victories as team owners, two of which came with Brad behind the wheel.
