Limited Edition Trophies for Celebrity Choice Winners

Celebrity Choice Award

Corvette Funfest Celebrity Choice Awards are designed to be show stoppers. This year is no exception, with renowned artist, Steve Posson, designing the Celebrity Choice trophies for the 20th Annual Corvette Funfest. This year’s design is a unique interpretation of the Corvette including features from all generations of America’s Sports Car.

Posson has been creating investment cast automotive and motorcycle bronzes since 1984. Prior to his focus on fine art sculpture, Posson studied automobile design at Art Center College of Design in Southern California. He designed and modeled prototype bodywork for Jeep, Volvo, General Motors and Renault, as well as motorcycle designs for Kawasaki, Yamaha and BMW. Steve combines his training in design, passion for precision and the ancient technique of lost wax casting to create limited edition bronze sculpture.

All registered attendees at Corvette Funfest have the chance to win a Celebrity Choice Award. The fun judging takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, inviting industry celebrities to choose their favorite Corvette based on looks, personality and whatever shows the owner’s Corvette passion. Will your Corvette take home this limited edition award?

Scholarship Established Honoring Retired
Corvette Chief Engineer, Dave McLellan

Dave McLellanMid America Motorworks and the Yager Family are excited to announce the establishment of a scholarship in the name of Dave McLellan, retired Corvette Chief Engineer and Father of the Corvette ZR1. The David R. McLellan Engineering Endowed Scholarship will benefit mechanical engineering students at McLellan’s alma mater, Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich.

Upon receiving his Mechanical Engineering degree from Wayne State University in 1959, McLellan immediately began working for General Motors. On Jan. 1, 1975, after years with the company including as a staff engineer under Zora Arkus-Duntov, McLellan became the 2nd Corvette Chief Engineer. He spent 17 years in the position, leaving behind many contributions to Corvette history before he retired.

Some of his technical achievements while Corvette Chief Engineer include introducing tuned-port injection, developing the 1986 Corvette convertible (the first Corvette convertible since 1975), as well as pioneering the 1990-1995 ZR1, and the 300hp LT1 engine. He and his team were also responsible for much of the early engineering that lead up to the C5 platform introduced in 1997.

Mid America Motorworks will honor Dave McLellan at the annual Corvette Funfest Charity Event Friday, Sept. 20th. The Charity Event will be hosted in MY Garage Museum at Mid America Motorworks’ corporate campus in Effingham, Ill. Highlights of this year’s event include WWII Exhibit, live entertainment, silent auction, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Proceeds of the event will benefit the David R. McLellan Engineering Endowed Scholarship.
