Evernham is best known for his work with Hendrick Motorsports and as crew chief for Jeff Gordon which led the team to three NASCAR Cup Series championships and 47 wins during their time together. However Evernham has also been a NASCAR Cup car owner, a race car driver, author, car builder, father, husband, TV and radio personality and an automotive genius.
During his participation in the show Evernham will take center stage on Friday night to talk about his career in the sport and answer questions from the audience. And there will be a special video that will honor Ray for his induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame earlier this year.
A fact often overlooked is that the media named Ray the greatest crew chief of all time.
Since age 15 Evernham has worked on race cars. He has designed, built and driven some of the most advance cars known to man.
Filling up a large display area of the show will be race cars that have had Ray’s handiwork during his career.
