Quincy Grand Prix Donates $5,000 to Gus Traeder Scholarship
Quincy Grand Prix Inc., the nonprofit organization that organizes the Grand Prix of Racing each summer in Quincy, recently made a $5,000 donation to Culver-Stockton College for a scholarship in honor of Gus Traeder, a former trustee at the college.
The Grand Prix previously ran from 1970 to 2001 in Quincy under Gus Traeder’s leadership. It was resurrected in 2018 under the leadership of Terry Traeder, Gus’ son and a member of the Board of Trustees at C-SC.
Next year’s event, set for June 13-14, 2020, will be the 50th anniversary of the first race in South Park.
