Honoree of the Month - April 2016
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 April 2016 is current, reigning, two-time, 360 sprint car champion at the Plymouth Dirt Track, Kewaskum’s Donny Goeden. Donny, the son of Hall of Fame driver Willie Goeden, and Jeanne Goeden, is also a past EWSC winged super modified champion and a past IRA 410 sprint car champion. Don began his driving career in 1985 in the modifieds. He and his twin brother Dave grew up around race cars all their lives, learning from their father not only about racing, but also about running the family business, Goeden’s Auto Body and Repair. Dave has been Don’s crew chief for his entire career and has enjoyed sharing in the moments of those many victories and championships the pair has earned together. Don was inducted into the Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame in November of 2015. He is honored this month with a special display featuring photos, artifacts and other memorabilia chronicling his years in racing.
