Gilmore Speaker Series

Jerry Entin – Racing Can Am, Ole Yeller, and Cheetahs

Sunday March 9 - 3 p.m. in the Heritage Theater

Free with Museum Admission – or $5/Lecture

Jerry Entin, once an avid racer and now an active on-line motor sports historian, will be speaking on his remarkable motor sports history on March 9th as part of the Gilmore Car Museum’s Spring Speaker Series. Jerry was the last racer who campaigned Max Balchowsky’s Old Yeller Mk II, the homemade 1950s/60s legendary Buick powered hot rod sports car that routinely embarrassed Ferraris and Maseratis on west coast road courses.

Jerry also owned and raced Cheetah #2 – a Chevrolet powered response to the Ford powered Cobra – which appeared in the classic Elvis racing epic, “Spin-Out.” Finally, throughout the mid-1970s, Jerry was involved with teams running in Can-Am and F-5000 racing series with drivers such as Brian Redman, Jody Scheckter and Vern Shuppan.

The nine week Gilmore Speaker Series is open to the public and covers a variety of subjects. Each of the Sunday afternoon presentations begin at 3 pm and are only $5 each per person, or free with regular museum admission. The lectures are appropriate for all ages and guests are encouraged attend those that interest them most. No registration is required and walk-ins are welcome.
