The Maine Sports Hall of Fame will hold its 43rd induction ceremony on June 3, and among the inductees is standardbred driver Jason Bartlett.
The event, which is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Collins Center for the Arts, University of Maine, Orono, will also induct Dana Bullen, Reagan Carey, Patrick Dempsey, Dewey Dewitt, Tammy Jacques, Robert “Bob” McAllister, Richard “Dick” Meader, Anita Murphy, Carl Nelson, Leroy Patterson, Bobby Wilder and Kristen Kenoyer Woodland.
Bartlett, a world-class harness driver and winner of more than 7,000 races, represented the U.S. in World Championships and is among the top three drivers in America. He has accumulated more than $87 million in career purses. Currently 37, he may well become the greatest driver in harness racing history.
“This is another exceptional class,” said Dick Whitmore, chairman of the board for the Maine Sports Hall of Fame. “The credentials of the inductees illustrate a distinctive array of achievement and exemplify the motto of our organization – A Better Maine Through Sport.”
