KNOXVILLE, IOWA (SEPT. 14, 2001) - The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum presents it's final historical forum of 2001 on Saturday, Septmber 22, at 3 p.m. as Iowa stock car racing pioneer Eddie Anderson of Grinnell shares his career story with moderator Daniel Turner and museum visitors. The forum, to be held during that weekend's National Kidney Foundation Tour for a Cure stock car events at Knoxville Raceway, will be held on the second floor of the non-profit museum.

During 1949 and '50, the Danish-born Anderson won over twenty main events with his Lincoln-Mercury at the state fairground facilities in Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri and Kansas. He also won at such legendary venues as Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds in Oskaloosa, the Clay County Fairgrounds in Spencer, Iowa, and the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Mo. He was crowned the 1949 International Motor Contest Association (IMCA) New Car stock car point champion.
