|Elma, WA, February 14, 2013.....Twenty-two years of dedication to the sport of auto racing has earned Bob Valencia the "Fast Freddie Brownfield Exemplary Contribution Award" for 2013 as announced by the Elma Auto Racing Hall of Fame.
The "Fast Freddie Exemplary Contribution Award" is a perpetual award named for the man who brought Grays Harbor Raceway to national attention. The award recognizes an individual or group who exhibits the Fred Brownfield attribute of going beyond the call of duty in an effort to give the racing fan the ultimate experience.
Valencia began working at Grays Harbor Raceway in 1991 and over the course of the last 22 years worked for several different promoters and served in numerous capacities, ultimately serving as race director. Despite taking his job very seriously, Valencia always finds time for the racers and thanks them for being part of the show.
Realizing that without the fans racing would not survive, Valencia is respected for his fan friendly attitude. He is well known to the spectators and can often be found mingling amongst the crowd before and after the races. Valencia’s smile, pleasant greeting, and his ability to converse with people on a personal level makes everyone feel welcome.
2013 will find Valencia entering a new phase in his racing involvement as he takes his skills and talents to Eastern Washington to help at the Yakima Dirt Track. It will be different not seeing Valencia at Grays Harbor, but Yakima will benefit from his involvement.
The award will be presented to Valencia on March 16, 2013, during the 5th Annual EARHoF Induction Ceremony, in the banquet room of the Elma Eagles. The public is invited to the evening of recognition that gets underway with a silent auction at 6:30. The Induction Ceremony begins at 7:30. Admission is free.
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.
