Don Biederman was a Canadian stock car racer from Port Credit, Ontario.

Since his death in 1999, Don has been inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame.

He has a memorial race held in his honor annually named "The Don Beiderman Memorial." This race is operated under the OSCAAR sanctioning body for Ontario Super Late Models.

Don 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.

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