Ray Evernham, a crew chief and team owner in the NASCAR Hall of Fame, will offer his noteworthy automobile collection for sale at Mecum Indy 2022 with no minimum bid. For the past 20 years, Ray has been looking for, discovering, learning about, and frequently rebuilding significant race vehicles. But sadly, his Mooresville, North Carolina, Big Iron Garage is at capacity. Ray may now reset his collection thanks to this transaction, giving him more room to discover, investigate, and repair more exceptional automobiles.

Since he began racing and maintaining automobiles at the age of 15 in his native New Jersey, Ray has always been a vehicle enthusiast.

Ray had his sights focused on winning championships throughout the first 20 years of his driving career. Ray discovered, however, that his success would not come through driving when he began working in the International Race of Champions (IROC) series with drivers like Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Dale Earnhardt, Darrell Waltrip, and Bill Elliott.

Ray was appointed crew chief for Rick Hendrick’s #24 squad in 1992, helping to develop young driver Jeff Gordon. The rest is history, including two Daytona 500s, the first Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and three NASCAR Cup titles.

The crew chief position in NASCAR was transformed by Ray’s “20 Points of Success” concept and inventive work with the Rainbow Warriors pit crew and engineering team, and it still sets the bar for performance today. Ray’s influence has subsequently been acknowledged by the racing media, which named him the “Top All-Time Crew Chief.”

Ray gave up his position as crew chief after the 1999 campaign to pursue team ownership as a new endeavor. Evernham was personally chosen by Daimler-Chrysler to lead Dodge’s re-entry into NASCAR competition. Ray established his own NASCAR team, Evernham Motorsports, and created a vehicle, engine, and parts distribution operation for Dodge’s entire NASCAR presence in less than 500 days. In their first Sprint Cup Series outing in over 20 years, Ray and Dodge secured the pole position for the 2001 Daytona 500 with Bill Elliott at the wheel. In 2007, Ray sold the remaining Evernham Motorsports stock he owned.

Evernham has also handled a variety of positions in the media industry, including hosting and producing his own television series “AmeriCarna” on the Velocity channel and “Glory Road” on NBCSN, as well as working as a NASCAR pundit for SPEED, ESPN, ABC, FOX, and NBC. For Pixar’s “Cars 3,” he worked as a consultant and voice actor. When Ray was admitted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2018, it was the greatest accolade of his career.

Superstar Racing Experience (SRX), a six-race series featuring 12 famous drivers from various types of racing battling head-to-head in similarly prepared cars on renowned short tracks around America, was a recent made-for-TV motorsports product that Evernham co-created for CBS. In just its first season, Ray oversaw the design and construction of the vehicles and created the thrilling race format that helped SRX rise to the position of the second-most viewed racing show in the United States.

At the moment, Ray is an enthusiastic car collector, a consultant, and an investor in businesses involved in motorsports and the automotive industry. He is also very active with his foundation, Evernham Family – Racing for a Reason, which funds IGNITE community centers for young adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome.
