12/26/03 Ed Duncan Nice picture of one of New Jerseys best Novice Division drivers
03/28/05 Jim Murrow There's three things for sure about Ed Goeke...
1. He had no money
2. He had lots of passion for racing, (I think his hobby car was worth more than his house)
3. He was a heck of a nice guy!
Anyone who knew him will miss him.
10/24/05 Ronnie My brother...  Ed " Lil Abner" as you all knew him, but always "Goek" to us 8 kids; gave us thrills as he raced around any piece of ground he could find.

He started with a cut down pick up that we called his beach buggy. Our sister Ginnie even fell out of it when she was about 6. Goek was so upset when he realized that she fell on her head and scraped the beautiful blond hair off one side of her head.

When he was a teenager he met up with Lee Hendrickson and Bob Hullfish and the love of racing began.  True we didn't have much money, but Mom and Dad were always there to cheer us on no matter what we wanted to do.

He was a big part of our lives and we all miss him.
His sister - Ronnie

03.17.12 Richard (aka LIPPY THE PIPEFITTER) ahh remember Ed well.  Worked with Ed many years at GENERAL MOTORS.   Saw him race before I started there in 63.  He was without a doubt one best mechanics and nicest guys I ever worked with.
