The Dewey Dellinger Memorial Award is a traveling trophy, awarded each year at
Grattan, by a vote of all Vee drivers, to the person who best represents a love of
and dedication to Vintage Vee Racing.

For the 2012 Race Season, the Vees are proud to present this award to veteran
Vee driver Garrett Van Camp.  A long-term instructor in the VSCDA Driver’s School,
Garrett is always the first to share his years of experience with less seasoned
drivers.  He is also a willing source of knowledge for car setup and often teaches
with a hands-on style.  In addition, he has crafted several unique Vee accessories
and tools to help make the cars easier to work on and safer to drive.  His “Golden
Toe” setup bar is a perennial favorite at the drawings held at the VVV trackside get-
togethers.   When we talk about Garrett being immersed in our sport, we are barely
scratching the surface.
Garrett Van Camp Receives  Dewey Dellinger Award for 2012
Dewey Dellinger was founder of Victory Lane magazine and a true friend of Vintage Vee racing.  Dewey passed away in
1996 at the age of 47, after a long battle with cancer.  Even after leaving the magazine and giving up his on-track racing
activities, Dewey would be at the track entertaining us as track announcer. His fun-loving spirit is evidenced by his creation
of the Fabulously Fun Fishing Contest at Grattan’s pond and his winning the first Most Outrageous Bathing Suit trophy at
the Grattan pool. In the evenings, you could find Dewey holding court outside his tiny Air Stream. The conversation often
turned to the good old days of racing, or if you just needed a compassionate listener, Dewey was your man.

With this award to Garrett, we remember and celebrate Dewey’s contributions to, and love of, vintage racing and his fellow

Garrett was not able to join the Vees group at Grattan.  He was later notified of his winning of the award and sent us this kind
thank you note:

“When Mike Kitzmiller called to tell me that I had been selected at Grattan to receive the Dewey Dellinger Vintage Vee
Award for 2012, I was both speechless and emotional.  To receive the award once is a great honor and to be selected by my
peers a second time is unbelievable.  It is wonderful to be part of the VSCDA Formula Vee family, and I will do my best to
honor Dewey in the future.  Thank you and see you at the Winter Party and at GingerMan.”
