"Uncle Frank" Passes

"Uncle Frank" (left) and John Fillimon at New Egypt Swap Meet - 2015

Sad news has reached us on the passing of Frank Bootz.  Always with a smile, "Uncle Frank" as he was known to the racing community, was the right hand man for nephew John Fillimon at the area Swap Meets.  Uncle Frank could also be counted on to help out whenever brothers John and Gerry Fillimon would have their off season racing movie events.

Will miss saying hello to Uncle Frank, and the smile he always had for us.

Our sincere condolences to John and Gerry Fillimon.

East Windsor Speedway Racer Mike Johnston Passes

We have received word that Mike Johnston, driver of the #47 Country Club Sunoco modified, has passed away.

Mike was a strong runner in the very competitive small block modified class at East Windsor in the 1990's.  The car (as pictured above) had "Country Club Sunoco", high atop the sail panels.  Mike's father Garry, and fellow East Windsor Speedway racer Fred Dmuchowski owned and operated the Sunoco station, which was located not far from the Somerville Circle.

Our condolences go out to the friends and family of Mike Johnston.

Friends and Family of Mike Johnston [47] will meet to Celebrate his life:

Cliff Krause Passes

Cliff Krause and son Andrew look over the RF tire wear after Dirt Modified time trials at Wall Stadium, 2011.

01/27/18:  The racing community is saddened by the loss of one of short track racing's strongest supporters, Cliff Krause.  We had learned earlier in the week that Cliff had suffered a heart attack, and we have now received the very sad news that he has passed away.

A devoted family man, a successful business man,.... and a man who stepped up when the sport needed him the most.  Cliff, his wife Diane, daughter Emily and son Andrew, all came to the rescue of Wall Stadium at a time when its future was uncertain.  It was Cliff's love of the sport, and his vision for what Wall could be, ...once again..., that began the process.

Having been a fan of short track racing, Cliff, with his very successful Supreme Manufacturing Company, became a sponsor for dirt track racer Rick Laubach.  Although Cliff considered himself a dirt track fan, when it looked like the last lap had been turned at Wall Stadium, it was Cliff and his family that signed a lease on the track, and immediately began taking on the challenge of bringing the Jersey Shore's asphalt surfaced speedway back to its former glory. 

One definition of the word "leader" is "One who inspires confidence in other people and moves them to action."  Cliff was a great leader.  He ignited the spirit of what "could be."   Those around him responded.  Cliff's unassuming personality instantly made all want to roll up their sleeves and support whatever the stadium needed. 

Whether seeing Cliff walking through the pits in a Wall Stadium sweatshirt, or sitting in the stands taking in a heat race next to fans, seeing Cliff's smile on a summer Saturday night at Wall was all you needed to see to know that he was where he wanted to be.  That smile, combined with a sincere thank you that Cliff always extended to his dedicated track staff and volunteers, was just part of Cliff's natural leadership abilities. 

He inspired confidence in those around him, and they rewarded Cliff by grabbing a hold of a racetrack that needed some help.... And with his leadership, they pushed... and pulled... and made sure that Wall Stadium found its way back to victory lane.

I'll miss being able to give a quick wave, or head nod to Cliff when seeing him at Wall.  I'll miss the smile that was always provided in return. 

My sincere condolences go out to the Krause Family, to the Wall Stadium Family, on the passing of Cliff Krause.

A Memorial service for Cliff Krause will be held on Thursday Feb 1st, at 5 pm at the Holmdel Community United Church of Christ at 40 Main Street in Holmdel, N.J. A buffet dinner of Cliff’s favorite foods to follow. All are invited. Donations can be made to an animal rescue. www.Homefreeanimalrescue.com  or mailed to Home Free Animals 64 White Street Red Bank N.J. 07701.
