Auto Racing
Year Inducted
With his 2009 induction, Julian E. Buesink, a pioneer car owner in NASCAR racing, fittingly joined two of his former drivers Lloyd Moore and Bill Rexford, in the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame.

As Moore once said, "If it wasn't for Julie, neither Bill or myself would have had the racing careers we enjoyed and for which we were recognized."

Legendary NASCAR drivers Richard Petty and Cale Yarborough sent letters to the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame acknowledging the "hardships and sacrifices Buesink made in the early years to make our sport what it is today."

Buesink was born in Mina on September 24, 1921, and was involved in the automobile industry his entire life owning Ford dealerships in Corry, Clymer, North East, and Westfield. He also owned a recreational vehicle dealership, as well as several used-car dealerships in the area.
