Mickey Thompson Wins The 2013 Justice Brothers-Shav Glick Award
Marion “Mickey” Thompson has been selected as the 2013 winner of the Justice Brothers-Shav Glick award. See the offical news below for full details!
Mickey Thompson was nominated and selected by a judging panel, that includes national and California motorsports writers, to receive the prestigious 2013 Justice Brothers-Shav Glick Award. Ed Justice, Jr., President and CEO of Justice Brothers, presented the award during the pre-race ceremonies at the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 500, at Fontana Raceway on March 24.
Marion “Mickey” Thompson was born in Alhambra, CA on December 7, 1928 and became involved in drag racing in his early twenties. He was noted as a driver, mechanic and innovative designer of high-performance vehicle of all kinds. He designed and built the first “slingshot” dragster in 1954. NHRA rated Thompson as #11 of the top rated drivers from 1951 to 2000. As well as being a drag race champion, Thompson set more speed and endurance records than any other person in automotive history at that time. He was the first American to break the 400-mph barrier during the 1960 Bonneville time trials, and he designed several INDY 500 race-winning vehicles. In 1973 he formed SCORE International, an off-road racing sanctioning body. In his varied career Mickey raced everything from off-road vehicles to stock cars, to dragsters and land speed record holders. Mickey was posthumously inducted into the Motorsports Hall Of Fame in 1990.
