Trueman family named grand marshal of Honda Indy 200 The Trueman family, owners of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the past three decades, have been named grand marshals of the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio.
Barbara Trueman, family matriarch, her daughter, Michelle Trueman Gajoch, president of the facility from 1989 to 2011, and daughter Megan Cindric, will be present during the weekend. Celebrating its 50th season, Mid-Ohio was sold to Kim Green and Kevin Savoree through Green Savoree Mid-Ohio, LLC earlier this year.
“This racetrack has been a big part of our family for the past 30 years,” said Trueman Gajoch, “We’re honored that Kim and Kevin invited us to return to the track as grand marshals. I’m really looking forward to seeing some of the staff, sponsors and others in the paddock I’ve worked with for a long time.”
Red Roof Inn founder and TrueSports Racing owner Jim Trueman invested millions into the track after purchasing it to modernize the facility.
“The Trueman family transformed Mid-Ohio from a popular car club destination to one of the premier road courses in the country. The capital improvements along with their long standing relationships with fans, the community and the sponsors has laid the foundation for decades of continued success,” said Craig Rust, president of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
