Swede Savage

Swede Savage conjures different memories to different people but it is always positive. They often label stars as Kings of this or that. Elvis Presley, King of Rock … Steve McQueen, King of Cool … Mark Donahue, aptly Mr. Nice, but to me Swede Savage is the King of Positive. His positive magnetism attracted the best sponsors, team owners and mechanics and attracted every fan that ever had the privilege of watching him race. Born August 26, 1946 Swede first raced professionally in AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) motorcycle competition then he switched to auto racing. On November 21, 1970 Swede won the Phoenix 150 “Indianapolis Car” race. His unique legend of positive lives strong in the hearts of the fans and hopefully newer generations can learn about his unique place in Motorsports and American History. David Owen

As with Racing Driver Dave MacDonald and his son Rich MacDonald, Swede Savage’s daughter Angela Savage very actively carries on the memory, legacy and history of her father Racing Driver Swede Savage. This is not to downplay the roles and achievements other children of the fallen racing stars have accomplished and are accomplishing. They do a great job also.
