Drag Racing Story of the Day!

How Linda Vaughn Got Her Start

By Jon Lundberg

In 1965, Hurst Performance Records recorded the Motor Trend 500 at Riverside. The next weekend was Daytona. We drove around the clock to be there and arrived Thursday morning. Friday evening, after dinner, we all gathered in George Hurst's suite for a pre-event meeting. George -- as always -- had a million things going on and one of them was a meeting with the current "Miss Union 76," a young girl from Georgia. When she walked in the room, you could feel the earth move. Even then, Linda Vaughn had a presence that made her very special. The moment her contract with Union 76 was up, she was "Miss Hurst Golden Shifter." I've known her for 35 years and still consider her one of the neatest people I've ever met.
