Sure do miss him. My first memory of Fred was when i was very young, i had a go kart. He was at Monroe helping Travis, who seemed like he was only 4.

My next memory was at the Wilskey's house, when they were changing one of Shawna's cars to set it up for Fred.

My actual first encounter with Fred was at Yakima, when i had a "question". I actually went to the infield to "ask" him a question. HaHa my mistake. He set me straight right quick.

My biggest disappointment to Fred was a Friday night at Elma during speed-week. this is when we ran Yakima during speed-week too. We were struggling abit during the week, and were gad to be back to Elma to maybe turn the corner. Well first lap of the heat race wrecked the car pretty good. So in my infinite wisdom I decide to want ti kill the guy who hit me. Well he was not near so I toss my helmet down. I walk around in a few circles while my car is being scrapped up, and now I decide... kick the helmet. So I did. As a former soccer player it went pretty far.  My talk with Fred that day was probably one of the lowest times for me. I felt ashamed.

Anyhow I raced a few years, and I am proud to say that most were under Fred. Fred, his family and friends that made the races so great.

So, at any rate thanks for the memories.

Fred was like a father figure to me most my life. I grew up as a baby with both my uncles working on his cars and one eventually went to Cecil Walkers car the other stayed with Fred through racing as well as the NST and NSCS now ASCS. When I was just little I remember looking up to Fred and learning from Fred throughout my life. When I was 11 he gave me money to help pay for my quarter midget racing as I grew up with a single Mom raising two boys and if not for my uncles and aunts, Fred and Debbie, Grandparents and my Mom working her ass off, I would have never seen racing nevertheless done all I have been able to do involving motorsports in my 32 years here on earth. And then there was the years when Travis and I were 14 or so and Fred and Debbie caught me, Travis and his cousin and step brother drinking at Skagit, Oh boy did we pay. After he stuffed us with a huge breakfast at the old Valley Cafe on Hwy 20. His words, " If you boys can drink like men, you can eat like men!" And they set plates in front of us that were bigger than us and we had to eat every last bite. Well, me being the fat kid :) I was like my god, this is punishment, a big breakfast? And after I finished mine I was lookin at the other's plates to see what they weren't going to eat:D. Well, we all left there stuffed and now had to head to Snohomish  and weed the flower beds and pick lilly pads from the lake and god knows what else at Fred's house and it was hot out, then it was back to the track where we had to wash the old Inlaws hauler and trailer and racecar and clean the inside of the trailer and all the tools on the tool box. Man were we tired. And if that wasn't enough my uncle Terry took me home the sunday after the race weekend and I had to wash his motorhome and wax it. I was 14 and it was like 90, I didn't know anything about waxing so I waxxed the whole darn thing and then cam e back to wipe the wax off, you know the rest:shock:. Wax does not come off after being baked on. So anyhow, then when Travis and I were 15-16 he gave Travis the Econo Sprint to race and me to work on to help keep us out of trouble, thatis the kind of guy he was, always looking out for everyones best interest and very loving to all us. I was around alot when Seth was born and hung out at the lake with Ty, Shelby and Jessica and did my share of lilly pad picking on the lake didn't I Debbie;). But it was fun and I owed it to them for all they had done for me and just for being able to hang out at the lake on those hot days. Later on I went my own ways and did alot of different things is racing from mini sprints to sprintcars to legend cars to NASCAR NW/SW Tour and Winston west, mostly wrenching from volunteer to full time. Did my share of traveling with Cal Herdson, Stevie Smith and Ken Kaltschmidt in NASCAR. I have been nlessed indeed and owe alot to Fred and Debbie as well as all the formentioned people in my life. No matter how long I was away doing other things besides sprintcars at Skagit and/ or Elma, I could always call or come back and be accepted by Fred and Debbie like no time had been lost. I love them and all their family  dearly and have the upmost respect and miss Fred so much as we all do. To Debbie and all the family, I am sorry for your loss and you are all in my thoughts and prayers this day as every day. God Bless! Fred Rest in Peace and may God bless you in your new home. We will see you soon!

That weekend was the toughest I've had as a journalist. I hope to never go through something like that again.
On Tuesday I was writing a story about a local dance studio. The owner was killed in an accident in January. The studio is still going, and next month a new owner takes over and will expand it. My thoughts went back to Fred and what happened in the aftermath of his death. Then I looked at my watch and saw the date. Couldn't believe it.
RIP Fast Freddie.
