|The Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame held its 5th Annual Spaghetti Feed on Saturday, July 27th, in conjunction with the 14th Annual Shipwreck Beads Modified Nationals, and it turned out out to be unqualified success. The change to a new weekend allowed the EARHoF to be introduced to many new people.
As usual Cindy Badgett and her crew of Randy Badgett, Melissa Beck, Vonnie & Stan Dillingham, and Tina & James Glesson did an outstanding job of preparing, serving, and cleaning up. George Wade made his delicious spaghetti sauce and Rich Leighty, Leona Walker, Harry Montgomery, and Wendy Leighty greeted, sold tickets and shirts, and watched over the auction. Bob Valencia provided the PA system and a fine turnout increase of 10% from 2012 made for a fun day.
The 50/50 Raffles on Friday and Saturday were greeted with the usual enthusiastic response from the fans and would not have been possible without the hard work of the Badgett’s and Leighty’s along with Steve Luellen and Don Fry.
The Spaghetti Feed Raffle went well with Craig Hanson and Gus Cooper each winning 2 Hoosier G60 IMCA tires donated by Hoosier Tire West, while Blair Shoemaker won $100 cash, and Dane Smith won the EARHoF package of hoodies, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and cap. The tailgate bench raffled during Saturday's races was built by Randy Badgett and won by Sean McFadden.
A few longtime Elma racers spotted bench racing during the afternoon included Ken Courts, Tom Neff, Jim Goodwin, Dick Morlan, Dan West Sr, Jim Sutherby, Rich Leighty, Keith Crowell, Glenn Vincent, longtime EARA official Corinne Williams, and Ed Williams who announced sprint car and midget races.
Thanks to Peggi Rush for inviting us to the Friday night pit meeting to talk about the Spaghetti Feed and Raffle. It helped a lot. Phil Martelli did his usual great job of publicizing the EARHoF during the races and Dawn Johanson was on the scene with her beautiful jewelry.
