A very popular name within automotive circles is coming to Carlisle as part of our 40 Years of Saleen celebration. Steve Saleen was born in California and attended USC, earning a degree in business. He parlayed his education into a booming career that saw him work with the Porsche Owners Club before becoming a competitive racer. In 1980, he entered the Formula Atlantic series and was third in the final series standings. After that, he advanced to the SCCA Trans-Am series in '82, driving a Ford Mustang. From there, his passion for the Mustang grew immensely, culminating with the founding of Saleen Autosport in 1983 and subsequent building of the first Saleen Mustang.
In 1984, the car was completed, tested and raced against some of the world's top cars, finishing first in its class at the Mosport 24 hour endurance race. Years later, Saleen formed a race team with comedian Tim Allen and driver Bob Bondurant. The three raced Saleen Mustangs in the SCAA World Challenge. Inducted into the Mustang Hall of Fame in 1996 along side Carroll Shelby, Saleen remains active today, primarily with his namesake company, Saleen Inc.
Don't miss a chance to meet Saleen at Carlisle in 2023 as he shares stories of his portion of automotive history as part of the special 40 Years of Saleen celebration. There will be autograph sessions, Q&A's, and more. The official schedule will be released as we get closer to Ford Nationals!
