A leading amateur driver, Mary McCune was the first woman to be elected an Immortal in The Hall of Fame of the Trotter now known as the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame. She did much to revive interest in amateur racing, continuing her active participation until late in her life. McCune established a world record for a lady driver on September 15, 1917, when she drove the trotter Mignola to wagon in 2:05 3/4. A resident of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, Mary McCune died in 1961.
