Mike Mokler

Huntington Beach, CA
Mike was the 1978 Mark Donohue Award winner in a borrowed ADF MKII FF. Having written off his ADF in early week practice, he flew in a replacement from Automotive Development in CA; but it was not ready in time to qualify. Under the guidance of coach/crew chief Mike Hull, Mokler started last in the 36th position and drove to a 2nd place finish. In the process, he set the Road Atlanta FF track record and had the fastest average speed for the race.
After a 45 year career in Electrical Construction, Mike is retired in Huntington Beach, CA, with his wife, Mary. They celebrated their 45th anniversary in December, 2018. He has three sons, two great daughters-in-law and five wonderful grandchildren. He is still an a dedicated race fan, a self-proclaimed “Mike Hull’s Biggest Fan”, and an avid surfer.
