Honoree of the Month - July 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 July 2017, is championship car builder and car owner Mike Randerson of Freedom, Wisconsin. Mike founded RanderCar Chassis Company and his cars raced and won throughout the country. Mike began his career on tracks in the Fox Valley with cars that made champions of drivers like Jerry Smith and Roger Regeth. Later in his career Mike built cars for such champions as Lowell Bennett, Mike Melius and the late Alan Kulwicki. Mike and his wife Phyllis turned the company over to his nephew Jim in 1991. Mike had given all he could to all racers whether top runners or those who hoped to be. He is one of the reasons we still enjoy short track racing today in Wisconsin and around the country. Mike 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.
