Harvey Lennox,

 Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame and London Sports Hall of Fame member and one of Canada's greatest race car drivers, passed away at Chelsey Park Nursing Home, London, Ontario, Canada, in his 85th year.

The London motorsport legend, famous for driving his signature super modified vehicle 'Tammy 10', won 182 times in feature races at tracks in Ontario and Michigan from the 1950s through the '70s.

Lennox won five international stock car championships and three national titles and was the top driver at numerous tracks, including CNE Speedway in Toronto, Kitchener's Bridgeport Speedway and back home at Delaware and Nilestown Speedway.

In 1961, he won a five-mile feature at Harewood Acres, the first time super modifieds were contested on a Canadian road course.

Lennox was inducted into the Canadian Motorsport hall of fame in 1995 and the London Sports hall of fame in 2011. He is also a member of the Flamboro Speedway's hall of fame.

He served as the honorary grand marshal for the ISMA super mod event at Delaware this past summer.
