When Juanita Hurst of Crandall passed away in May of 2021 at the age of 92, The Corydon Democrat published a story about the day in 1963 when she drove at the Harrison County Fair the fastest pacing mile ever recorded on a half-mile track by a woman driver. This world record time has since been broken, but this story was noted by the Harness Racing Hall of Fame in Goshen, N.Y., which this month posthumously honored Hurst with a brick on its Walk of Fame during annual Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
