When John Campbell makes his last drive in the United States on Sunday, July 2, at Goshen (N.Y.) Historic Track, fans will have a few chances to get a remembrance of his historic career as harness racing's leading money winning ($299.9 million) driver of all time.

The first 500 paid admissions to Historic Track on Sunday will get a commemorative 8.5x 11 photo of Campbell with some of the best horses of his career, including Mack Lobell, Peace Corps, Merger, Miss Easy and Life Sign. (See attachment). The back of the photo details Campbell's statistics and accomplishments.

After the annual Mr. and Mrs. Elbridge Gerry Memorial Trot for Hall of Fame drivers on Sunday, Campbell will be available to sign those photos at the track.

He will be joined by eight other Hall of Fame drivers signing their photos: Bill O'Donnell, who will also be making his last U.S. drive that day, Ron Waples, Jimmy Takter, David Miller, Dave Palone, Wally Hennessey, Dick Stillings, and Brian Sears, who will be inducted in to the Harness Racing Hall of Fame that night.

In addition, the Harness Racing Museum, adjacent to the second turn of the track at 240 Main Street, will sell signed John Campbell bobbleheads ($50) as well as a signed poster of Campbell, designed in pop art style by Raymond Lance, for $100.

Mugs based on the Historic Track poster will sell for $15 at the Museum. All proceeds benefit the Museum's mission to preserve and promote the sport of harness racing. Those that cannot get to Goshen on July 2 can order by calling 845-294-6330.

"We are delighted that John has agreed to the sale of these souvenir items to help celebrate his long and important career," said Janet Terhune, Museum director. "John has made so many fans for the sport and we're happy to have a way for them to remember and celebrate his contributions."
