|December 10, 2015, Elma, WA……The white flag is out and the checkered flag is about to be thrown for nominating outstanding individuals for 2016 induction into the Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame. In order to be considered for the next class into the EARHoF, nomination forms need to be completed and postmarked by December 31, 2015.
Eight new members will be selected as 2016 Inductees and will officially enter the EARHoF on March 26, 2016, in a ceremony to be held at the Stay Beyond Inn & Suites in Elma.
EARHoF President Rick Leighty reminds everyone that it is only by being nominated that a person can be considered for induction.
“We depend on families, friends, and fans to nominate their Grays Harbor Raceway heroes. If someone isn’t nominated the selection committee won’t be able to consider them because they won’t know about that person. The selection committee doesn’t come up with the candidates, they merely consider the nominated individuals and vote on those candidates. Their votes elect the 8 inductees for that year. So, don’t rely on someone being nominated, do it yourself,” stated Leighty.
To qualify for induction in 2016, a person had to have begun his or her involvement with auto racing at Grays Harbor Raceway in 1986 or before. Potential inductees can include drivers, owners, pit crew members, officials, or anyone who has had a special influence on auto racing at GHR.
Nomination forms that are postmarked after the December 31st deadline, or are not chosen for inclusion in 2016, will be placed on the 2017 ballot.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the official EARHoF website at https://elmaautoracinghalloffame.webs.com, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to have a form mailed.
The Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and honoring the history of auto racing at Grays Harbor Raceway.
