Linda Vaughn, best known as “Miss Hurst Golden Shifter,” will be signing autographs during the Show, Shine, Shag and Dine weekend activities.

Vaughn is best known for her association with Hurst-Campbell Corporation. It began in 1966, serving as spokesperson and good will ambassador not only for Hurst’s products, but also for all forms of motor racing and especially drag racing.

Vaughn was recognizable for a curvy figure, blonde hair, vivacious personality and a down-home soft Southern speech. She was a 2006 Hall of Fame inductee as the Wally Parks Motorsports Statesperson of the Year Award winner.
