Gordie Shuck

Gordie Shuck built his first race car (called either a hot rod or roadster) in 1948 with a full roll cage -- a safety feature years ahead of its time. He began racing at county fair races, and later with the Nebraska Hot Rod Racing Association in 1949. He quickly became the dominant driver, winning many races and two straight championships in 1949 and 1950. He moved to big cars (sprints) in 1951, diving for Jim Gessford of Hastings and Chick Byrnes of Grand Island in the U.M.C.A., continuing his winning ways. He was voted “Sportsman of the Year” by his peers in 1953 after winning the U.M.C.A. championship. In 1954, he began racing modifieds and late models, winning championships in 1955 and 1956 at Hastings. Shuck was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 1999.
