Don Biederman (February 26, 1940 - May 31, 1999) was a Canadian stock car racer from Port Credit, Ontario.

Racing career

Biederman was also the first Canadian ever to campaign for a full season in the Sprint Cup Series formerly known as the NASCAR Grand National Series.

Biederman won the prestigious Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway, Maine in 1977,[1] one of only four Canadians to do so, with Junior Hanley, Derek Lynch, and Dave Whitlock being the others.[2][3][4]

Biederman won the IWK 250 at Riverside International Speedway in James River, Nova Scotia on three consecutive occasions from 1979-1981.[5]

Death and legacy

On May 31, 1999 Biederman died at his home in Brantford, Ontario at the age of 59 following a long battle with cancer.[6]

Since 2000 the OSCAAR Racing series holds a race in his honour entitled "The Don Biederman Memorial" at Flamboro Speedway in Millgrove, Ontario.[7]
