Flamboro Speedway Celebrates 2014 Season And Hall Of Fame Inductees At Banquet

By Randy Spencer for Flamboro Speedway

“A good time was had by all.” That was the general consensus after the 2014 Flamboro Speedway banquet, held at the Waterdown Legion January 30th. A large crowd was on hand to celebrate the accomplishments of the 2014 racing season and the third annual Flamboro Stadium & Speedway Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

After a great dinner, I was introduced by Clinton Geoffrey and spoke of the new members to the Hall for 2014, the 19 alumni inducted over the past 2 years and remembered three inaugural inductees that we lost last year; Harvey Lennox, Earl Ross and Ken Stenhouse Sr. I also thanked several people, who without their help the Hall wouldn’t be possible. John, Frank and Frankie Casale, John Karley of Georgetown Printing, my daughter Larissa, Mike Schmidt from London Recreational and all the sponsors of the program as well as all those who voted and purchased a program.

Five of six inductees were in attendance or represented by a family member. For me, these banquets are usually a way to meet some of my heroes. Jim Collison is one I’ve met before but is always great to talk to an a great ambassador of our sport and Flamboro Speedway. Charlie Beck was represented by his wife Georgia. She spoke of how humble Charlie would have been. I’ve known Georgia for several years and is another great ambassador of racing. Meeting Terry Kitchen, Wayne Keeling and Howie Scannell Sr. was a thrill for me, all great gentleman and outstanding racers. Jack Cook’s daughters were unable to attend due to other commitments. Another great success and already looking forward to next year’s class of six new inductees.

Once the Hall of Fame portion of the banquet was finished, we moved right into the track awards portion of the banquet. Many of the 2014 competitors were on hand. Grisdale Racing once again sponsored Grisdale Triple Crown series for Late Models, the 12th annual series. APC Auto Parts sponsored a six race series for Late Models and Thunder Cars between Flamboro and Delaware Speedway drivers. London Recreational once again sponsored Frostfest and all were represented to congratulate the champions and other competitors with their awards. Perfect Attendance awards, Rookies of the Year, Most Improved, Most Checkered Flags, Best Effort, Best Appearing and Most Sportsmanlike awards were also presented. See the full list below. Great job by Clinton Geoffrey as Master of Ceremonies and Frank Casale for all his hard work producing the trophies and plaques. Also thanks to Derek Smith from Racepulse Photos who took some great pictures that are available on his
website, http://www.racepulse.com/

This past Sunday, February 8th, the annual Flamboro Speedway Rules and Registration meeting was held at the Waterdown Legion. A great turnout, looking forward to opening day at the track on April 25th. The annual Swap Meet and practice day is one week earlier on April 18th.
