Honoree of the Month - September 2017
The Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame, at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum, in Hartford, Wisconsin, is proud to announce its Honoree of the Month for September 2017, is former Sportsman champion Lee Sohns of East Troy. Lee drove Sportsman and Late Model cars for over four decades, beginning in the early 1970’s at Milwaukee area short tracks. He became a two time champion at his home track of Hales Corners in 1982 and again in 1991. His cars are remembered for always carrying his signature “checkered flag” paint schemes on their roof. Later in his career Lee raced open wheel IMCA style modifieds and created Premier Fabricating Company which currently builds and sells “P.F. Flyer” modified cars driven on short tracks in the Midwest. Lee was inducted into the Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame in November of 2016. He is honored this month with a special display featuring photos and other memorabilia chronicling his years in racing.
