Donnie: No, the CARC did not and still does not keep records of main or heat race wins. Records are kept just long enough to award trophies and point fund money every year, and then they just kind of blow away. One of my intended labors of love is to go back through Rocky Mountain News or Denver Post archives and add up victories by way of race report articles week by week and year by year. In the 50's, the Club raced twice a week (Sundays and Wednesdays) for awhile, so it could get pretty time-consuming. I think Don raced from about 1968-1972, doesn't that sound right? Going through those archives piecemeal would be about the only way to find out for sure, unless he kept a scrapbook with articles. I wish I could be more help, but that's really the only record available. Listing Don's accomplishments would go a long way towards getting him elected into the CARC HoF. Thanks and good luck! Paul

Well Mr. Paul maybe you should speak to more of the "Old timers" who were actually there. I am sure they would love to be part of this web site with there first hand stories.

hey all..
my desktop went down a few weeks ago and I've had to wire my notebook into the system so---
First off--congrats to all who were inducted at the banquet--I wish we could vote in alot more every year---but I enjoyed this years line-up---to the Ertlers---MORE STORIES----and Nice Hair--Miss Peggy----congrats especially to my old time competitors folks---hey Bruce, now we need to figure out how to get Warren jr in, and later on..Scott!!

Secondly, I'm pretty sure when we threw the names out for the HOF, I asked for the entire Carelli clan to be inducted---knowing the Rick did not want to go in yet indivigually (no spell chek)----and I will probably do it again next year---again--congrats to all--kt--#11 c-mod

Hi Kevin,
Thank you for the kind words. Chris and I figured it was 1997 the last banquet we went to. We did enjoy ourselves. And it was great to see a lot of friends.

I really want to see Joe's pictures to see how my hair looked. I know a lot of watches and shirt buttons got caught in it.....but it was fun to wear.

Thank you again....
Sending Love,
Miss Peggy

It was absolutely wonderful to see the joy of all those that were inducted at the banquet. Chris and Peggy both were just beaming, and I wonder if either of them got any sleep that night!

Congrats to all that were inducted!!

The 2010 CARC Hall of Fame class was inducted last night at the banquet, and what a great and talented bunch it was.
Clarence "Tiger" Krieger
Jack Graham
Terry Daniels
Pat Petrie
The Carelli family
and last but not least Buddy Craig

What a great honor for a wonderful bunch or guys. And what a fantastic job of research and preparation Paul Bredenberg put into his induction speeches for all of the inductees

also deserving of mention was the special award given by the CARC to the Rhoades family for their support of the club via the Warren Rhoades Memorial race held in Cheyenne Wyo....congrats--also, someone who was very instumental in our career, and a big part of our aquiring the petty car, was Pat Petrie---u can see pics from Pat's career on the site---also Buddy Craig--rip Buddy....kt
