Default CARC Hall of fame

The 2009 class for the CARC Hall of Fame, inducted at last nights banquet was so talent laden. The following people were voted in.
John Pachello who did not attend.
Sam Gallo whose large family was all there to witness.
Sam Sauer whose 3 children Cindy, Scott & Michelle who accepted in his honor.
Al Starr who was accompanied by his wife Dovie, son Chuck, daughters Sue and Donna and many others.
Chris and Peggy Ertler who also had a large group to help them celebrate.
and last but not least my dad and mom Warren and ElWanda Rhoades, whose kids and grand kids were all there in support.

What a great job Paul Bredenberg did will his research and induction. Thanks Paul

What a great honor this is to be voted in by your peers, I know as I was voted in in 2006. Maybe Joe Starr can add some photos of last nights celebration.

Peggy and I would like to thank the CARC for inducting us into their Hall of Fame. It is a huge honor to be included with so many well known stars. Thank you Bruce Rhoades for thinking enough of us to place our names in nomination.

We have both held office in our beloved club. Peggy as secretary/treasurer in the '90's as well as working in the pit shack at Lakeside. I have been president, vice-president, board member, and was club historian in the late '90's. Thanks to the driving skill of Butch Wallace, the #29 car that Mike Colitti and I built, won the 1984 Limited Modified Championship at Lakeside.

Thank you to our friends who attended the banquet to show us their support. Long time friend Mike Colitti moved me almost to tears with two comments he made. One was, "I have lived in Colorado for 40 years and I've known you for 39." The other came as we were admiring the image of Gary Land's beautiful coupe. My car and Gary's both have '32 Chevy bodies. As I was comparing the two cars, Mike replied, "There's one thing it doesn't have." When I asked what that was, Mike replied, "It doesn't have the hood your dad, Les built." That really got me.

Thanks again. Everyone involved in putting on this banquet did a great job, the food was good, and the company was priceless.

A question for you older guys......Was my dad Don Carelli good enough or won enough races to be considered to get voted in the CARC HOF? I know I have a lot of pictures of him winning and I heard that if he had not gotten sick he would have gone places in racing.

THX,
Donny Carelli

I think he should be nominated and concidered, he won a lot of races and was a hard racer and taught his younger brother a lot my brother and I used to hang out with Donnie and Eugene on 44h and elm by your grandfathers house in n Denver before any of us started to race at lakeside. Schafer1

Hi, Donnie! Yes, I remember that Don did win a lot of races and even Bob Land told me that he would have been one of the best had he been able to continue. I don't know if that would qualify him for the HoF or not, at this point. I would suggest you send me a letter of nomination and I'll get it to the committee for consideration. You can send it to: Paul Bredenberg, 9941 Holland Circle, Broomfield, CO 80021. Thanks!

Paul, I will be sending that request to you shortly. So is there a record of heat race and main event wins for every year?

Thx,
Donny
