Friends of John Martin Memorial

On November 20th, the racing world lost a true one of a kind. John Martin was one of the last renaissance men. John was much more than just a driver; he was a team owner, engine builder, mechanic, etc. He remained active in the racing world participating in different vintage events, sharing his expertise with others, and being one of the top engine builders in the country until the end. On top of all of this, his amazing generosity and spirit touched countless lives. 

Now is the time for all of us to return the favor to the Martin family. Funds raised will go directly to John's wife, Linda, to help pay for funeral expenses and the associated transportation costs as well as any other unexpected expenses at this difficult time. Any additional money raised will be donated to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum in John and Linda's name.

Any amount will help. And if you are unable to give today, please take the time to share this with others.
