YMCA’s After School program helps kids reach their potential

CITY: Downtown water and sewer work continues; Main Street projects up next


City staff asks everyone be patient during this process


Gaston County YMCA spokesperson Molly D’Avria noted in a recent media release they are starting After School programs in various YMCA’s across the county. Noted D’Avria, “A new school year is filled with potential – a chance to start new routines and habits, build new friendships and discover new possibilities and interests. It’s an exciting time for many kids, however – at the end of the school day, one in five children do not have someone to care for them after school, according to Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness organization. As families are transitioning from summer to fall, the Gaston County Family YMCA is offering programs to schoolaged children throughout Gaston County to keep youth active, busy and engaged during out-of-school time. “Through a well-rounded approach to youth development, the Y’s programs offer activities in a caring and safe environment during the critical hours after school. Whether through sports, mentorship, or academic support, the Y nurtures the potential of youth throughout the school year.” Hailey Hudson, Youth Program Director agreed, adding, “Over 11 million children are unsupervised

between 3 and 6 p.m., an essential time to help increase children’s success in school. Afterschool at the Y is a fun and safe option for children after school ends each day. They get an opportunity to be active, work on their homework, and have a little fun with friends.” Cherryville Family YMCA Accounts Payable manager, Sandy Homesley, noted YMCA Director Sharon Padgett and Josey Messer will be over all of the After School programs. Both Homesley and Butch Boyd, the Cherryville Family Membership Coordinator, said their trained staff strive to create an environment that supports the needs of Cherryville’s children. Boyd added, “We are following the CDC’s requirements for a safe environment for our children and staff.” Homesley noted the After School Program for Cherryville’s Family YMCA this year is at Mount Zion Baptist Church with the times starting at after school dismal (roughly 2-2:30 to 3 p.m.) until 6 p.m. She added they are open Monday through Friday. Crystal Baugham will be over the program at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, said Homesley. D’Avria said, “The ‘Y’ is a leading nonprofit committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, See YMCA, Page 2

Construction work on the City’s sewer lines is still on-going, said City Manager Jeff Cash recently, even though it appeared the workers had left. “They were only tidying up for the weekend,” noted Mr. Cash last Friday afternoon, adding, “This is an 18- to 24month project, from start to finish, and it will continue, depending on the weather and materials, until the project is finished. They are moving along well.” Last week, the Cherryville’s Paul Czerr and his company were seen doing

Gaston Schools’ Superintendent Booker makes first day of school rounds by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

On Monday, Aug. 23, as many thousands of Gaston C o u n t y School students and DR. W. their teachJEFFERY ers were BOOKER e n j o y i n g Gaston County their first Superintendent of Schools day back to

school, Todd Hagans, Chief Communications Officer for Gaston County Schools noted the school superintendent was doing the same. In a recent media release, Hagans said, “Superintendent of Schools Dr. W. Jeffrey Booker spent the first day (Monday, Aug. 23) stopping by schools to greet students and staff. He started at W.A. Bess Elementary in Gastonia where he talked to several teachers, observed students settling into first- and second-grade classrooms, and

welcomed a group of kindergarteners to school for the very first time. By lunchtime, Booker had visited seven schools.” Said Dr. Booker, “It was great seeing the students arrive at school this morning. Everyone was positive and upbeat and ready to begin a brand-new school year. We know that we will face challenges this year because the pandemic is ongoing, but our hope is that this school year will be as normal as possible for students and teachers.”

He continued, “The first day of school is a time when the slate is wiped clean, and everyone gets a fresh start. Our teachers are prepared to help students build on what they learned and accomplished last year, and they are going to do everything they can to make sure our students grow and thrive in the year ahead.” Hagans noted Dr. Booker said he wanted to thank the teachers and parents for all See BOOKER, Page 2

we saw a lot of excitement and enthusiasm (that) morning that we hope will carry all the way through to the last day of school on June 1, 2022” said Dr. Booker. Hagans said it is Booker’s goal to visit all 56 schools in the Gaston County school district during the first two weeks of school.

CITY From Page 1 Street due to a reduction in work force due to a COVID exposure. He was not working on the Downtown Revitalization.” As for that larger project, Mr. Abernathy said, “The Main Street Revitalization Project is now under way. Staff has con-

tractors working on water and sewer utilities right now but will progress to downtown improvements as soon as the utility projects are complete.” The overall work right now is being done, said Abernathy, by two contractors. “There are two contractors working right now. CaJenn, which is a Collection System Contractor from Georgia, and Sealand Construction, which will be working on the Water

Distribution and Downtown Improvements. Both companies are not local but have worked locally on several projects for other communities,” said Brandon. Abernathy noted the Water and Sewer Infrastructure Improvements are the “…first part of the Downtown project, then it will move to Main Street Streetscape Improvements.” Mr. Abernathy said some problems have been

observed, but such is to be expected when dealing with the age of Cherryville’s pipes and such. “There have been several issues that have had to be addressed but it is expected when you are replacing infrastructure that is as old as Main Street,” he said, “There will be more issues as the projects move forward. We just ask that everyone be patient during this process.”

JCMS From Page 1 the two courtyards – dubbed (for obvious reasons) The Big Courtyard and The Little Courtyard. Their disrepair and sad overgrown state was not only a minor eyesore that could be fixed, he thought, but once finished, the two refurbished spaces would be great places (especially with certain aspects and issues of the pandemic still ongoing) for the JCMS students to possibly eat lunch, providing they could find a way to get the right tables, or maybe a great place to sit outside (weather permitting) and study. And, just so you know up front, Matt Rikard is not a man easily dissuaded or one to shrug his shoulders and take “not sure we can get this done” for an answer when it comes to, well… getting things done! So guess what he did? He went out and found a way to get things done and now JCMS Wolverine Country has a couple of sharp looking places to study in, maybe eat in, or sit and talk with their teachers. The sky, when it comes to Rikard’s vision for these things, is the proverbial limit. But he still needs help in the way of donations to get the right tables and other items needed to REALLY spruce things up! The Eagle talked with Mr. Rikard by way of a follow-up to see just what all has been done and where things currently stand, and what is left to be done and what can make that happen for JCMS. Here’s what he had to say… From start to finish, Matt said the actual work on the courtyard took about two weeks. The planning stages took a while longer. Aside from his and others’ own sweat equity, he said, “It was a partnership with Gaston County Schools. GCS had project managers, contractors, and gentlemen from maintenance that were here every day overseeing the work.”

The aptly-named Small Courtyard. Mr. Rikard is not quite finished with what all they are going to put in this small space just yet. As for donations or “angel investors”, Rikard noted, “We have received a few donations towards the seating (tables). I have not approached (any angel investors) personally, but have had community members say that they will talk to (some).” Regarding dollar amount projections for what all is needed, as well as what you hope to try and get. Rikard

said, “We would like to purchase between 12 to 25 metal picnic tables, like what are located in downtown Cherryville. The metal tables cost around $600 each. The reason for the metal is that they will be more durable, and we can sanitize them between usage. We plan to use the areas as outdoor learning areas, as well as an expansion to our cafeteria so that we can help maintain our so-

cial distancing.” As for everyone’s reaction, Mr. Rikard said, “They (teachers, staff and students) have loved the transformation. They are excited about what the spaces will be used for once the seating is in place.” Donations are still needed and wanted, and Mr. Rikard said to contact him at John Chavis Middle School at (704) 836-9606.

New partnership focuses on the next generation of school leaders A new partnership with Gardner – Webb University will help Gaston County Schools develop the next generation of school administrators. Twelve teachers in Gaston County Schools will be chosen for a 20-month program, completing 36 credit hours that leads to a master’s degree in school administration. Offered through the Superintendent’s Leadership Academy, Superintendent of Schools W. Jeffrey Booker is encouraging teachers who have thought about becoming a principal, assistant principal, or central office supervisor/director to take a serious look at the program. There is a Friday, Sept. 3 deadline, so it is important

to get with GCS as soon as possible if a teacher is interested. “We are extremely proud of this new professional opportunity for teachers in Gaston County Schools, and we are grateful for Gardner-Webb University’s commitment to helping us train and develop future leaders in our school family,” said Dr. Booker. “This program is ideal for teachers who want to advance their career and serve in a leadership role such as assistant principal, principal, curriculum/ academic facilitator, dean of students, and lead/content teacher.” Teachers chosen for the program progress through the coursework together as a cohort. Classes in online format meet for 10 weeks, three hours per week (Tuesdays

from 7 to 9 p.m., and Thursdays from 7 to 8 p.m.) The cohort also meets in person three Saturdays during the semester from 9 a.m., until 4 p.m., at the Linda Rader Staff Development Center in Cramerton. Classes focus on executive leadership, resource management, curriculum development, research and assessment, and other topics. According to Dr. Booker, tuition is free for the 12 teachers chosen for the program; participants will have to pay for their books, which will be about $200 a semester. Through the partnership, Gardner – Webb will cover tuition for half of the participants while the school district uses professional development funds to pay the tuition for the other half. The cost is estimated at $20,000

per teacher. “Gardner – Webb’s willingness to work with us on the cost is a significant factor. Sometimes, teachers have an interest in becoming a school administrator and show promise of being an excellent one, but they do not have the financial resources to pay for a master’s degree,” said Dr. Booker. “This partnership takes that burden out of the equation so teachers can work toward fulfilling their educational career goals. We realize that this is a substantial financial investment, but we have to invest in our workforce today so our schools will have leaders tomorrow.” A teacher applying for the program must be employed currently by Gaston County Schools and have a continuing profes-

sional license for educators. Other requirements include holding a bachelor’s or equivalent degree from an accredited college or university; having a minimum 2.7 grade point average on undergraduate or master’s level coursework; having worked as a classroom teacher for at least three years; committing to work in Gaston County Schools for at least five years after completing the program; and having a willingness to present workshops at district leadership events such as the Teaching and Learning Conference. No GRE or MAT score is required. The deadline to apply is Sept. 3, so interested teachers should submit their resume and a copy of their teaching license to the Gaston County Schools Academic Services

Department. Interviews will be held the week of Sept. 6, and selection will be announced the week of Sept. 13. Classes begin Oct. 2. For more information, contact Academic Services at (704) 866-6231. Booker concluded, “We estimate that more than two thirds of the school administrators in Gaston County Schools already have 20 or more years of service, which means they can retire sometime in the next 10 years. That is why we must act now to identify, train, and develop school administrators for the future. This new program is a win-win for Gaston County Schools and Gardner – Webb University, and we are excited to see how it will benefit our teachers, our schools, and our community.”

Colorful cones create a “stage” for Ms. Traci and we have some special guests attending to ensure space between human attendees. Early literacy is so important, and so is having fun! We are also bringing back one of most popular programs, LEGO Club, but again, we are setting things up a bit differently to follow health and safety guidelines. The Club will meet every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 3:30 p.m., and participants will still have 45 minutes to build. If enough patrons show up for the Club, we may send participants to different sections of the library with their tubs of parts – again, it’s all about trying to keep

that safe distance. We have learned to be creative and flexible in these many months! September also marks the return of our partnership with Gaston Cooperative Extension. Linda Minges will bring “Cooking Smart with Fall Foods” to our adult patrons on Friday, Sept. 17, at 10:30 a.m. Participants will learn how to make tasty, delicious, and EASY meals featuring North Carolina fruits and vegetables such as apples, pears, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and more. Attendees will receive recipes as well as preparation and storage tips. Registration is required and must be done by Friday, Sept. 10. For more details, you can contact Linda at (704) 922-2127. As we mentioned last week, September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month. If you have never had a Gaston County Public Library card, now is the perfect time to get one! We have some nice goodie bags to give to NEW library card holders, too. For more information about how to get a card, our events, and all other library-related questions, give us a call at (704) 4356767, or stop by the branch at 605 E. Main Street. Our public service hours are 10 a.m., to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m., to 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday. As always, stay safe and stay healthy!

The Family Storytime is now back into the branch, as well as back to its original time on Thursdays. Ms. Traci and her staff (and all the stuffed critters!) are following the general guidelines of social distancing for our patron’s safety. (photos provided)

Gaston County woman says $1 million prize ‘is like a dream come true’ City Council RALEIGH – Latoya Hen- and federal tax withholdings.

derson of Stanley couldn’t believe her luck when her $10 ticket revealed a $1 million prize. “This is like a dream come true,” she said. Henderson purchased her lucky Jumbo Bucks ticket from Will’s on West Charlotte Highway in Mount Holly. She claimed her prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. Henderson had the choice of taking the $1 million as an annuity of 20 payments of $50,000 a year or a lump sum of $600,000. She opted for the lump sum of $600,000 and took home $424,503 after required state

“Most importantly, I want to invest my money so that it will keep growing,” said Henderson. “And I’m going to give back. I’m going to take care of my mom and my grandma.” Jumbo Bucks launched in April with eight top prizes of $1 million. Three top prizes remain to be won. Ticket sales from scratchoff games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million per year for education.

Combating Fear Sometimes, I think people forget that we are in a spiritual battle - Righteousness vs. Wickedness. The devil is counting on individuals not being aware of his game plan of destruction, division, and death. He wants us to be distracted by the frivolous while he incorporates his diabolical agenda. Apostle Paul warns us to open our eyes! He states in Ephesians 6:12-13 DANYALE PATTERSON (ESV), “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” In other words, we need to always ask the Holy Spirit for discernment when we listen to the media, politics, and people in general. We need to ask ourselves: “Is what I’m hearing in alignment with scripture? Does this please the Lord? Is what I’m listening to producing peace and righteousness, or chaos and turmoil?” A Sneaky Approach The devil is very strategic with his methods. One technique he uses is releasing the spirit of fear. Fear’s purpose is to intimidate, bully, and put people into paralyzing bondage. However, the bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV), “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Strategies to Combat the Spirit of Fear The Lord doesn’t want us to sit back and be bamboozled by fear. He wants us to fight back! Through Jesus Christ, we are victorious and more than conquerors. Here are a few strategies to put fear in its place: • Rebuke it in the name of Jesus. For example, say “Spirit of fear, I resist you and cast you out of my life, home, and family in the name of Jesus - and don’t come back! The blood of Jesus is more powerful than you and covers me and my entire family.” • Memorize and meditate on scriptures of Peace & Faith. • Spend time declaring scriptures and make them personal. For example, with the scripture Psalm 91 say: “I dwell in the secret place of the Most High God…” etc. • Take a sabbatical from the negative reports of TV, social media, and people - or limit how much you listen to each day. PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Lord, I praise you as the God of Peace. Please forgive me for allowing the problems of the world to be more real than you in my life. Drive fear out of my heart and life. Comfort me by your Holy Spirit and your word. Help me to believe and focus on you more than anything else. Fill me with your peace and love. Father, please remind me to look to the hills from where my help comes from. My help comes from you - the One who created heaven and earth. May I keep my eyes on you and zero in on your holy word. In Jesus’ name - Amen.”

There was a flow to their play. Consequently, the team they would be beating would fall apart. The other team would just stop swinging while at bat. The other team’s fielders would panic and hold the ball, while coaches and fans screamed instructions to “THROW THE BALL!” It was quite intense. I believe Christians can learn something from this. In a world where our personal relationship with Jesus Christ has become the most important aspect of Christianity, we seem to forget John 15:12, which reads, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” Christ has loved us more than anyone or anything we have ever known.

that love is not to be kept to ourselves. This is how God’s love is like a softball. It is meant to be put into play. Multiple times every day God throws His love to us in the hopes we will pass it on. Now just like in softball, I’ve noticed when life is up a few runs, it’s easy to toss love around. We find that love just flows from us. Yet when life feels like we are a few runs down, love is tough to let go of. We want to hold on to it. Folks, that is when it is most important to put God’s love into play. This is when the little acts of love cause a rally that lifts us all up closer to God.

2021 Ironmen gridiron squad win one away, lose first home game zone for a TD. It was one of two Ironmen fumble recoveries for four points. The Ironmen ran or passed for two-point conversions on all TDs, and the CHS men got 21 first downs and one interception. Miller had a great game on offense as did many of his teammates, and the D-line men – young Mason Grindtstaff was also one of the many players watched as the night progressed – had a great night, with both sides of the Ironmen’s game having generally a fantastic night and a great first game of their 2021 season. Overall, it was a hard-hitting game and both teams gave good effort as Coach Pruitt’s roughly 37 players clearly came to play some serious football. Total rushing yards were 228; total passing yards were 136, for a total on the night of 364 yards achieved by the CHS men.

Defeat Avery County 34-22 in first game of season; lose to West Lincoln 27-7 by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Against Avery County It was a great way to start out a brand new year and season for Ironmen football! The Avery County Vikings lost to the visiting CHS Ironmen on Friday, Aug, 20, by a score of 34-22, in spite of the Vikings drawing first blood 7-0, in the first few minutes of first quarter play in the first half. The Ironmen came back and managed to get a twopoint safety making the score 7-2, but the Vikings were not going to go quietly into the dark, as they scored again in the first quarter. Both teams, incidentally, racked up 20 points apiece in that first half to have a tied game situation going into the second half. The second half though was the Ironmen as they roared back, eventually winning the non-conference game 34-22. Starting Ironman quarterback Kadin Beaver was injured after one play and had to leave the game, but backup QB Chase Miller came in and guided the Ironmen, quarterbacking basically the entire game. Additionally, Miller had 11 carries for 100 yards. Beaver eventually came back into the game but in a defensive position, getting a twoyard gain on a carry after his initial injury. Newcomer Gavin Newsome had a carry for negative yardage and Cooper Sloan, last season’s “go-to” runner, carried the pigskin for the Ironmen 23 times for a total of 127 yards. Sloan also completed a pass for two yards. Backup QB Miller completed 10 of 19 passes for 134 yards, hitting speedy Landon Hahn for three TD passes; one for 47 yards; one for 36 yards; and one for seven yards, respectively. On defense for the Ironmen, many had a great night, but Jack Dellinger recovered a Viking fumble in the end

Against West Lincoln Rival gridders the West Lincoln Rebels, absent from SPC 1A/2A Conference for a bit, are now a force to be reckoned with… again, and the Ironmen are having to contend with them. The Ironmen arrived on the Rudisill Stadium field amidst a cloud of smoke and vapor and came out literally swinging, scoring first with a TD by Landon Hahn with 46.2 seconds on the clock in the first quarter of the first half of play. Kicker Henry Gil’s extra point was good and the Ironmen were on the boards, 7-0. The Rebels tied it up 7-all with 8:31 on the clock in the second quarter. With no time showing on the clock, West Lincoln scored, making it 13-7, as the extra point was no good. Going into halftime, the CHS Ironmen had 19 passing yards to their credit. After the half, the Rebels scored in the third quarter with 3:58 on the clock, making it 19-7, as their extra point after was no good. There wasn’t much action in the third quarter and the game moved into the fourth quarter. The tough Rebels scored again with 7:23 on

Here they are seen bursting through the cheerleaders’ paper sign after running the dense smoke. (photos by MEP/The Eagle/CF Media) the clock, making it 27-7, as their extra point this time was good. Cherryville’s quarterback options were between starter Chase Miller and Kadin Beaver, who QB’s last season, and both youngsters did a phenomenal job helming the Ironmen squad last Friday. Cherryville’s Ironmen defense had some great hits, most notably by Kam Bolin and Jake Dellinger, to name a few, and offense work by Miller, Hahn, Beaver, Cease, et al. Once again, Coach Tim Pruitt and his staff and young men proved they have what it takes to stand up and be counted among the SPC 1A/2A conference crowd this season. Stats for the Ironmen in this one are 34 yards rushing; 48 yards passing (total offense yards: 82). The defense was on top of things with grinding it out and keeping a tough Rebels team on their toes the whole game. Miller completed 16 passes for 48 yards. He has six carries for 18 yards; Cooper Sloan had six carries for 24 yards; Tobias Miller carried the ball once for 12 yards; and Jack Mulvey carried the ball had 17 yards.

Coach Leigh Kiser said her volleyball squad won their conference opener this week. However, first came two non-conference matches. Last Monday, Coach Kiser’s ladies traveled to Chase and, just like the previous matchup, she said this one went five (5) sets as the Lady Ironmen pulled out the win. Scores, noted Kiser, were 25-21 (CHS), 25-16 (CHS), 25-20 (Chase), 25-12 (Chase), and 16-14 (CHS). Coach Kiser said her team gave up another big match lead but showed a lot of heart in this victory. For Cherryville, Coach Kiser noted Rileigh Kiser had 18 assists and 18 digs, while Skye Reed had five (5) serve aces and nine (9) kills. “Taylor (Digh) and Krista (Davis) led our defense with 13 and 8 digs, respectively,” noted Coach Kiser. Last Tuesday saw the Lady Ironmen head over to Lincolnton to face the Lady Wolves. Kiser said her ladies weren’t as fortunate, as too See VOLLEYBALL, Page 9

Kiser noted, “We had plenty of opportunities to win the match, but some ill-timed offensive and defensive errors did us in.” In this matchup Rileigh Kiser had 28 assists, 26 digs and six (6) serve aces, and Taylor Digh’s 17 digs, and senior Terayha Bess’ 13 kills led the stat line for CHS’ ladies, noted Coach Kiser.

Said Kiser, “Shelby’s JV made quick work of our JV Ironmen squad, 2-0, by scores of 25-10 and 25-17. Ceniya Powell led our defense with two digs.” The Ironmen were on the road at rival West Lincoln on Monday.

Motorsports Hall of Fame of America Class of 2022 inductees unveiled at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Second historic inductee to be announced in a few weeks Eight legends from the world of motorsports, including four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves, were named to the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (MSHFA) as the 34th class was unveiled recently, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). A ninth inductee, in the Historic Category, will be unveiled later this month in a separate announcement. The Class of 2022 includes the designer of the 1965 World Champion Cobra Daytona Coupes, Pete Brock (Sports Cars); the first foreign-born, four-time Indianapolis 500 winner, Helio Castroneves (Open Wheel); the only person in history to win NHRA Top Fuel championships as a driver and crew chief, Dick LaHaie (Drag Racing); “The Henry Ford of race cars,” NASCAR builder Banjo Matthews (Business); the only woman to receive the Ken W. Purdy Award for Excellence in Automotive Journalism, Denise McCluggage (Media); NASCAR cofounder and championship-winning team owner Raymond Parks (Historic); “The Cat in the Hat” who has masterminded more than 300 NASCAR wins, Jack Roush (Stock Cars); and motorcycle racing innovators who have won NHRA drag racing titles, AMA Supersport and Superbike titles, two Daytona 200s and more, Terry Vance & Byron Hines (Motorcycles). “Many of the members of the Motorsports Hall of Fame are people that I grew up idolizing and to now be invited to join this group, I just can’t believe it,” Castroneves said. “I’m so honored to have the opportunity to be inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame and I feel so lucky to be included with these legends.” n the Hall one day. It is going to be a great night for motorsports, and I am grateful for this opportunity.” The MSHFA Class of 2022 was unveiled in a press conference at IMS featuring Castroneves, IMS President Doug Boles and MSHFA President George Levy. “Like so many legends before them,” said MSHFA President Levy, “the Class of 2022 has left an indelible impression on the sport. We can’t wait to welcome them into the Hall of Fame next March at our home on the grounds of Daytona International Speedway.” The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America is the only hall that honors the entire sport and as such is the most exclusive. Each of the MSHFA’s inductees is elected by a straight vote of 200 experts – half of them historians and other experts, half of them inductees themselves. Regular voters have included Hall of Famers Mario Andretti, Richard Petty, Tom D’Eath, Shirley Muldowney, Chip Ganassi, Don Garlits, Parnelli Jones, Scott Parker, Chip Hanauer, Don Prudhomme and other titans of the sport. Each year, MSHFA classes are formally inducted in a celebration featuring motorsports legends and fellow Hall of Fame members at a black-tie gala. The Class of 2022 induction will be in Daytona Beach on March 7-8, 2022. Including the Class of 2022, 278 “Heroes of Horsepower” are in the MSHFA. The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America Class of 2022 is: • Pete Brock (Sports Cars) – Brock is best known for designing the 1965 World Champion Cobra Daytona Coupes and for his multi-time national champion Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) Datsun 240Zs and 510s. At GM in the 1950s, Brock helped conceive the shape of the groundbreaking 1959 Corvette Stingray race car and 1963 production model. As Shelby Ameri-

The next race will be on Wednesday, Sept. 1, at Shelby, he said.

can’s first employee, he ran the Carroll Shelby driving school, penned the Daytona and worked on the Mustang GT-350 street and race cars. After the Datsun years, Brock became a photojournalist and wrote award-winning books on his Daytonas and the Corvette Sting Ray. • Helio Castroneves (Open Wheel) – The Brazilian has one of the greatest records in Indianapolis 500 history, winning four times (2001, 2002, 2009 and 2021) (joining fellow inductees A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears), taking pole four times and finishing second three times. Castroneves is a four-time runner-up for the IndyCar championship and 12th alltime in IndyCar wins with 30. He was dubbed “Spider-Man” for his victory fence-climbs and gained broad attention after winning the 2007 edition of Dancing with the Stars. Castroneves also won the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the 2021 Rolex 24 at Daytona. • Dick LaHaie (Drag Racing) – The only person in NHRA history to win Top Fuel championships as a driver and crew chief, LaHaie captured the 1987 Top Fuel championship in the cockpit and four more as crew chief for Scott Kalitta (1994, 1995) and Larry Dixon (2002, 2003). LaHaie’s first major victory came at the 1980 Summernationals. In the early days, he’d sometimes dig through trashcans for parts the top teams had thrown away, then beat them with their discards. His 1987 Top Fuel title was won with daughter Kim as crew chief. LaHaie was No. 31 on NHRA’s 2001 list of its 50 Greatest Drivers. • Banjo Matthews (Business) – Smokey Yunick called him “the Henry Ford of race cars.” The cars Edwin Keith Matthews built dominated NASCAR for more

than a decade. From 1974 to 1985, he produced about 400 chassis and rebuilt about 200. Of the 362 races in this period, his cars won 262 – over 70 percent – including all 30 1978 contests. For years, the Akron, Ohio native was proud that no driver was killed in a Matthews-built car. As an owner, he entered 160 Cup races, capturing 14 poles and nine victories, including three Firecracker 400s at Daytona with fellow inductees Fireball Roberts, A.J. Foyt and Donnie Allison. • Denise McCluggage (Media) – Few fueled the rise

of sports car racing in the U.S. more than McCluggage. Without her, there would’ve been no Autoweek, the sport’s bible in the ‘60s and ’70s. She also was a trailblazing female driver, winning her class at Sebring in 1961 and at the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally. (She was famously denied entry at Le Mans because of her gender.) Joining the New York Herald Tribune in the ‘50s, she became the first female sports reporter for a major daily. In 1985, she became the only woman to receive the Ken W. Purdy Award for Excellence in Automotive Journalism for her piece on F1 legend Juan Manuel Fangio. • Raymond Parks (Historic) – Without Parks, there might not have been a NASCAR. He was a key member of the group that met with Bill France at the Streamline Hotel in Daytona Beach in 1947 to create NASCAR and helped keep the sanction-

ing organization afloat during its early years. Considered its first team owner, his entries set a standard for excellence. The former moonshine runner’s cars won the first NASCAR (Modified) championship in 1948 and the inaugural NASCAR Strictly Stock (now Cup Series) title in 1949. When he died in 2010, he was the last surviving member of the sport’s founders. • Jack Roush (Stock Cars) – Roush has succeeded in more forms of motorsports than almost anyone. In NASCAR, his teams have captured more than 300 races and eight championships across all three major series, including back-to-back NASCAR Cup Series titles (2003-4). “The Cat in the Hat” left an engineering job at Ford in 1970 to team with Wayne Gapp. Over the next five years they won NHRA, IHRA and AHRA Pro Stock titles. In the ‘80s, Roush’s incredible domi-

nation of SCCA and IMSA included 24 national championships. His two Daytona 500 trophies came with Matt Kenseth (2009, 2012), and • Vance & Hines (Motorcycles) – Few rider/ tuner pairings have dominated like Terry Vance and Byron Hines. From the early ‘70s until Vance retired from riding in 1988, they captured 14 Pro Stock and Top Fuel titles. Their popularity prompted NHRA to add motorcycle racing to its national series. Since 1980 they’ve made Vance & Hines a world-leading aftermarket parts supplier. Their

road racing teams have won AMA Supersport and Superbike titles and two Daytona 200s. More recently, they’ve run the successful Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines Pro Stock drag team. Vance was No. 35 on NHRA’s 2001 list of its 50 Greatest Drivers.
