Leo Mehl

Hudson OH

Never a driver, but the best friend many racers, series or sanctioning bodies throughout the world ever had during his 1959-1996 tenure as Director of Worldwide Racing for the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. His tireless (sic) work truly made Goodyear the ‘Number 1 name in Racing’ for many years. After retiring from Goodyear, became Executive Director of the Indy Racing League from 1997- 2000, and remains a vital consultant to the IRL. Leo is currently the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America as well as being an 2007 inductee, and is President of the Chemical Engineering Academy at his alma mater, West Virginia University.
