At Schenley Park over 100,000 spectators will see Daniel Panoz honored for all his and his company's contributions to motorsports. These include organizing the American Le Mans Series of 1999-2013 and creating the Panoz series of road and racing cars incorporating many advanced technologies. Panoz cars had winning participation in international major races including Le Mans and Sebring. The special recognition begins with a reception for Mr. Panoz the evening of July 21 at the Pittsburgh Golf Club.
