Krause and Barrick to be guest speakers

Tuesday, May 17: When erstwhile Flemington Fair Speedway announcer and current Area Auto Racing News (AARN) Senior Editor Earl Krause was invited to be a guest speaker, he chose an AARN colleague – FSHS’s own Steve Barrick – to join him.

It was opening night, April 28, 1962, when the late Earl Krause Sr. first took the youngster Earl to the Flemington races. As moderator of a recent FSHS meeting interview, Krause artfully described the spectacle he witnessed and the marvel he felt – which was the inimitable domain of the Flemington Fair Speedway.

In the summer of 1956 Steve Barrick’s parents Carol and Morris, both now deceased, introduced him to the races. Barrick soon became a true fan, which he remains to this day. Beginning in 1980, Barrick’s Program Dynamics produced Modified Country, Flemington Speedway’s weekly periodical until the end.

Krause and Barrick are witnesses to history, and share an uncommon eloquence. 

Flemington Elks Lodge #1928 is the venue for the meeting. Doors open at 6:30 PM. The meeting gets underway at 7:00 PM or shortly thereafter. Admission is free, and open to the public. You’re invited, we hope to see you there.
