Honoree of the Month - October 2014
The Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame, at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum, in Hartford, Wisconsin, is proud to announce its Honoree of the Month for October 2014 is former Sportsman and Late Model driver Charlie Weddle. Charlie worked on, and raced his cars, mostly by himself. He took things he learned by doing and turned them into things he could successfully use to further his career. Known later in his career as "The Black Fox" Charlie became the 1965 Mid-Season Champion at Raceway Park in Beaver Dam. He acknowledges the help and friendships of guys like Jim Boehles, Wes Eckert, Cal Clark, Ron Fryer, Dick Duston and Frank Smith as instrumental throughout his career. Charlie was inducted into the Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame in November of 2013. He is honored this month with a special display featuring photos, artifacts and other memorabilia chronicling his years in racing.
