* The candidate has to be a past or present legal resident of the Maritime Provinces (Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia or New Brunswick) However, if a non-resident, competed the vast majority of their career within those Provinces the Maritime Motor Sports Hall of Fame Board will consider the candidate’s career. All completed bios must be received by the Hall of Fame board by the first day of April. The actual induction ceremonies take place in November.

All bios remain permanently on file. You must include the candidate’s date of birth, place of birth, total years and dates lived the Maritimes, date deceased, if applicable, and complete current address and phone number, email. The author shall also provide their own complete current address and phone info, and explain relationship to candidate. (Wife, husband, son, daughter, friend, fan, associate, etc.) Elements needed for a concise, to the point, easy to read bio.

Keep the facts and events of a candidate’s career in chronological order. Start at the beginning and work forward. Please do not jump around from decade to decade, and do not insert facts and info out of order as to when they happened. Write as much history about the candidate as you please, we will always want and need as much info as we can get for our historical archives. However, realize that for the balloting/voting/and induction process, we have to condense the highlights of a candidate’s career down to ONE 8 1/2″ x 11”-word processor-written (type-written) page.

As the author of a given candidate’s bio, you would speed up the submittal process by writing a shortened, condensed one page bio, as well as a longer version, if you wish. Consider including a “Quick-Facts” chronological reference sheet along with the bio. On a left column put the years, from the career beginning, and then place the major highlights of each year on the right-hand column.

Be sure to include basic facts such as:

  • Specific type of motor sports nominated for
  • List any and all roles filled in motor sports by candidate; driver, official,
    owner, engine machinist & builder, crew chief, mechanic, etc.
  • Include info in regards to any other motor sports experience and
  • How original interest was developed
  • First year racing
  • Last year racing
  • Location of first & last race or competition
  • List important wins at the local level

  • List important wins at the national and world level

  • Most memorable feat or cherished memory in motor sports career

  • Include as many copies of photos as you can, including a quality head photo of the candidate. This is very necessary for our archival photo collection, our induction process, and for our public exhibit display.


Please go to one of the various copies making outlets that have a laser copier. These machines will make copies of your originals that look as good as the originals, color or black and white. Please do as much research as possible on a bio, and please double check all of the facts. We realize that this is sometimes difficult. An example would be when you are the third, or even fourth family generation away from a candidate who is possibly deceased, and other first-hand sources have passed on also. Nonetheless, we would implore you to ensure the greatest possible accuracy and documentation in your findings.

Don’t “embellish” the facts if you’re not sure of them. The Maritime Motor Sports Hall of Fame Board appreciates and welcomes all legitimate biography submittals. We also welcome all donations of memorabilia of all types, to include photo, scrap book yearly kept log book, and other collections. As we are a Non-Profit organization, your donations are welcomed.
