August, ME: The Maine Motorsports Hall of Fame has announced that on April 4, 2015 Dick Berggren, President of the Racing History Preservation Group (RHPG) that is the parent company of the North East Motor Sports Museum, will be inducted.
Dick will be one of six inductees who have influenced motorsports in Maine. He made his mark on the sport in his #80 Super Modified at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in the mid-1970s and raced Modifieds there in the early 1980s. As editor of Stock Car Racing Magazine and later his own Dick Berggren’s Speedway Illustrated, he put Maine motorsports on the national stage with his stories about Beech Ridge, the Oxford 250 and Maine racing personalities. In total, only 80 other significant Maine racing figures have been inductee into the Maine Motorsports Hall of Fame.
