Del Fry 2013 "Larry Spoon Distinguished Service Award" Winner
Elma, WA, February 7, 2013.....The Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame is pleased to announce Del Fry as the recipient of the "Larry Spoon Distinguished Service Award" for 2013.
The "Larry Spoon Distinguished Service Award" is named after one of the founding fathers of the Evergreen Auto Racing Association and an inaugural inductee of the Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame. It honors individuals or groups who at least 30 years ago displayed outstanding service to Grays Harbor Raceway, exhibiting the qualities of dedication, sportsmanship, and unselfishness exemplified by Spoon.
Fry was one of the strong contingent of racers from Montesano who began their racing involvement at the Evergreen Speedway in Central Park. As one of the original racers helping to get the race track operational, Fry played a big part in ensuring that auto racing became a staple of the sports scene in Grays Harbor County.
Initially spending time as a driver, Fry ultimately gave up that aspect of the sport in favor of working and helping on the cars. He was also involved in preparing the race track, spending many hours grading the Elma ½ mile during the 1960s and 1970s.
Fry remained a lifelong fan of racing until his passing. His son, Don Fry, is a 3 time sprint car champion at Grays Harbor Speedway.
The award will be presented to Fry’s family March 16, 2013, during the 5th Annual EARHoF Induction Ceremony, in the banquet room of the Elma Eagles.
The Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and honoring the heritage of Grays Harbor Raceway. Information on the EARHoF can be found at http://elmaautoracinghalloffame.webs.com.
