Huss honored at Geezer Race
By: MASHIE MIHALKO Special to the Review, Staff Writer
The 10th annual Geezer Reunion at the Grove was held on the Fourth of July weekend. This event brings together the cars, drivers, and fans of nostalgia drag racing at Maple Grove Raceway. In addition to the drag racing and exhibition show of funny cars, fuel altereds and dragsters, there was also a car show and manufacturers midway.
A large billboard was unveiled Saturday afternoon displaying the past track champions of Maple Grove Raceway from 1971 to 2010. Marlin Huss, of Akron, was among those honored because of winning the Super Pro category in 1981 and 1985. Mike Lewis, who is presently the vice president of Don Schumacher Racing, introduced Huss.
Even though Marlin does not maintain the racing schedule of yesteryear, he will be found occasionally at local drag strips. Since restoring the 1972 Pro Stock Vega of "Jungle" Jim Liberman, he has been busy displaying this historic race car. In addition to exhibiting the Vega at nostalgia events, Huss had been invited to the Concours d’Elegance in Radnor. Only 100 cars are featured each year at this prestigious event. Recently his Pro Stock was part of a special display that lasted for four months at the America on Wheels Museum located in the city of Allentown. Huss has been asked to other venues. However, due to time and travel considerations, he cannot always fulfill the requests.
