Jon is another one of the local Detroit Dragway legends. He was born, and lived in the area (Lansing) not far from Detroit Dragway.
A lot of track announcers get to be well know at their local track, but Jon was different, he was a well traveled track announcer who got to know the cars & drivers from all over the country…
We here in Michigan were lucky, while he did announce at different Michigan tracks, here at Detroit Dragway Jon was the track’s announcer from 1962 until 1972. Those of us that had the opportunity to hear work were lucky.
Jon was Inducted into the Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame in 1997
