To nominate a person for the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame, please send a biography of the person and “why you think they should be selected for the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame” to the selectors.
Bill Shrewsberry may be best remembered as “Wild Bill”, driver of the L. Dart wheel standing Dodge Dart, but before stepping into that seat, he drove a series of Funny Cars for Mickey Thompson, Jack Chrisman and other such distinguished owners.
Bill accepted the driving assignment and the car was debuted for the very first time at the 1965 NHRA Springnationals in Bristol TN.
Dean was one of the original founders of SEMA and had a display of his products at the very first SEMA show in Dodger Stadium that same year.
Dean continued to help lead the Association for many years but also never stopped developing and producing new products to help the performance minded hot-rodders go quicker, faster and safer.
While the plan was for ‘regular’ exhibition runs, only after replacing the original 8-inch tires with a new set of 10-inch tires, the car instantly became a “wheelstander”.
The car was not built as a wheel stander, but after a few runs Bill learned how easy it was to get it into a wheel stand and the decision was made to make it a real show stopper as such.
To name a few of the cars included in the “MOON Collection” was a record setting ‘mini streamliner’ powered by a 90 CI Harley Davidson motorcycle engine, an outstanding 32 Ford coupe and a ultra-sleek sports car.
