Technical Inspection Equipment Inducts Buckeye Machine President

Posted by Angie Wigle

On May 9, 2015, D. Ray Marshall, President of Buckeye Machine, was inducted into the 2015 Hardin County Sports Hall of Fame.

While his racing career ended in 1973, the thrill and passion of the sport still thrived.  Marshall was the founder, builder, and an instrumental key in producing technical inspection equipment known as “The QualifierTM” for Formula One (F1), Championship Auto Racing Team (CART), and the Indy Racing League (IRL).  The equipment advanced technical inspection from hours of inspecting a car with 12-18 people to just minutes of a complete inspection with 4-6 people.  Marshall was awarded the prestigious Chief Stewarts Award for most innovative achievement at the Indy 500 in 1990.  He was also a primary sponsor for midget racing and Gaylon Fox in the Nascar Michigan 500.

Buckeye Machine is proud of his accomplishment and Marshall is honored with the induction.

Marshall continues his passion of racing with his own dirt track team today with Ray Marshall Motorsports.
