Keith Crain, publisher of Automotive News and chairman of Crain Communications Inc., is one of four people who will be inducted into the Autorama Circle of Champions on Feb. 22 in Detroit.
Crain, a noted car collector, will receive the honor during the three-day Autorama - a show for hot rods, muscle and customized cars at Cobo Center Feb. 21-23. The honor is given based on a vote of peers.
Joining Crain as new members this year are Richard Skoglund of Plymouth, Mich., founder of Ramchargers Performance Connection, and Bob Rydell and Wes Rydell of Grand Forks, N.D., who were given the Ridler Award for best Grand Master custom car at last year's event. Previous honorees include noted vehicle customizers George Barris and Ed Roth.
