•    Robby Gordon, Call Wells III, Roger Norman, Frank Arciero Jr. and Walker Evans Among Motorsports Stars to Join Stewart in Rollicking Gathering


 An “Ironman” Hall of Fame career deserves to be shared with everyone and that is exactly what Toyota Racing and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (MSHFA) have put together for this Saturday, February 13, when a special “Heroes of Horsepower” livestream honors 2020 MSHFA Off-Road Racing Inductee Ivan “Ironman” Stewart.

The winner of 84 desert victories and 10 championships – including three Baja 1000s and 17 Baja 500s – Stewart returns to the spotlight once again Saturday as the star of the MSHFA’s second Heroes of Horsepower livestream event.

Motorsports television host Marty Reid will serve as the emcee while several racing notables and great friends of Stewart’s will join the online celebration.

The Facebook Live event, which begins at 3 p.m. EST/12 p.m. PST, is free to the public and can be joined by visiting the motorsports Hall of Fame of America’s Facebook page and clicking “Interested” or “Going” in the upcoming events tab. Those who mark “Going” will receive a notification from Facebook when the event goes live on Saturday.


Guests include Stewart’s fellow off-road champion and Speed Energy Stadium Super Trucks CEO Robby Gordon, longtime Toyota off-road champion team owner Call Wells III, Baja 1000 champion and current SCORE President/CEO Roger Norman and lifelong friend and fellow Baja 1000 winner Frank Arciero, Jr.

Off-road racing legend Walker Evans (MSHFA Class of 2015) is out of the country but has sent a heartfelt letter to be read to his longtime friend during the event.

“The Heroes of Horsepower livestream series connects fans with some of the greatest stars in the sport’s history,” said MSHFA President George Levy. “Getting to be in the same ‘room’ with Ivan, Robby, Walker and all the rest is an experience usually reserved for insiders. Saturday promises to be filled with humor and heart.”

The first MSHFA Heroes of Horsepower livestream was held last October honoring Class of 2020 Drag Racing Inductee “Ohio George” Montgomery and was supported by Montgomery’s longtime sponsor Malco Products. Like the Ohio George event, the Ivan livestream presented by Toyota Racing will be recorded and made available on the MSHFA YouTube channel for those who are busy Saturday.


Located at Daytona International Speedway (DIS) in the Ticket and Tours Building on International Speedway Blvd., and just outside of NASCAR Turn 4 leading into the famed DIS tri-oval, the MSHFA is open daily nearly year-round, except holidays and major DIS race and event days. For most of the year, access to the MSFHA is included with every Daytona International Speedway tour, which run throughout the day, or as a museum-only ticket. For more information, visit the MSHFA at or contact Levy at (248) 895-1704 or

The MSHFA is a true wonder and serves as the only hall that honors all American motorsports, from cars, motorcycles, airplanes, off-road and powerboats. Inside, you’ll find some of the most important vehicles in racing history, including Mickey Thompson’s Challenger I, Richard Petty’s 1972 NASCAR champion STP Charger, Scott Dixon’s 2008 CGR Indy 500 winner, Henry Ford’s famed “999,” and Ricky Carmichael’s 2005 supercross champion bike.

The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America is on Facebook at and Instagram and Twitter at @MotorsportsHOF.
