Brownsburg, Indiana — December 29, 2018

Dick Jordan, who recently celebrated his 50th year as an employee of the United States Auto Club, was honored with his induction into the Circle of Corydon recently in Brownsburg, Indiana.

The Circle of Corydon Award is for Hoosiers who have made remarkable contributions to the betterment of Indiana and its people, demonstrating through life and service qualities exemplified by the state’s greatest citizens.

Jordan’s tireless work in the United States Auto Club News Bureau for five decades has also netted him honors as an inductee of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and the National Midget Hall of Fame among others.

One of the most respected people in all racing media, Jordan was also honored for his contributions to the series at United States Auto Club’s Night of Champions with the announcement of an award named after him. 

Jordan was also the recipient of the 2018 Jim Chapman Award for excellence in motorsports public relations in May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Chapman Award is considered by many in the industry as the highest honor in racing public relations. It is named in memory of Chapman, the legendary PR executive and innovator, who worked with Babe Ruth and was named Indy Car racing’s “most influential man” of the 1980s. Chapman died in 1996 at age 80.
