SAN FRANCISCO - April 13, 2011: Edsel Ford II, great grandson of Henry Ford, was the featured speaker at this month's Western Automotive Journalists' meeting is South San Francisco. The purpose of Mr. Ford's visit was to promote the plan that he, Rick Hendrick, Roger Penske and Jack Roush have developed to establish a permanent "Racing in America" exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.

A secondary reason for speaking with the motor press was to announce his renewed search for the lost punch bowl trophy that was won by his great grandfather on on Oct. 10, 1901. It was Henry Ford's victory over America's then top racer Alexander Winton that launched Ford on the road to fame and fortune.
