Saying Goodbye to Motorsports Icon Vic Edelbrock

June 12, 2017

 photo credit: Jim Culp Last week was a hard week in the motorsports racing community.  On June 9th Vic Edelbrock, Jr., hot rod and racing icon, passed away from complications resulting from a cold.  Pacific Raceways has been honored to have Vic and his daughters race on our road course many times over the years at the Pacific Northwest Historic Vintage Races. In 2009 Vic was the Guest Celebrity at the PNW Historics, greeting spectators, and signing autographs, while also racing his 1967 Corvette alongside his daughter Christi in her 1966 Shelby GT350 and all of the other racers in the crowd favorite large bore group.  Vic’s friendly demeanor was a magnet for racers and spectators alike to stop by and visit his paddock.  Always welcoming and outgoing, Vic was an inspiration to us all. As the presenting sponsor of the PNW Historics for many years, the Pacific Northwest was given the opportunity to see the Edelbrock family’s and corporation’s philanthropic sides.  Including their sponsorship over the years, Edelbrock helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Seattle Children’s Hospital through this vintage racing event.  Vic may have been California based, but his ties to the PNW have run...

Remembering a Friend, Chuck Lyford

June 5, 2017

It is with very heavy hearts that we share the news that long-time SOVREN racer Chuck Lyford passed away this weekend, following a racing accident at another track.  Through decades of racing at Pacific Raceways, we have been honored to see him doing what he loves. In addition to vintage racing at the track, Chuck and his wife Pam shared many adventures together, including winning the 2013 Vintage Cape Horn Rally in their 1938 Chevrolet Fangio Coupe, which has been on display at the track during the Pacific Northwest Historics.  Chuck was known for his great story telling abilities including his past adventures, his fun-loving nature, and especially for his big heart.  He was a hydroplane driver, pilot of fighter planes (including racing and acrobatics), and with friends, created the Lazy-Boy-Recliner race at Pacific Raceways back in the early 2000’s.  He and Pam have been avid supporters of many great philanthropic endeavors, one here at Pacific Raceways being the PNW Historics benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital. Pacific Raceways sends our thoughts and prayers to Chuck’s family, friends and racing community.  He is loved deeply and will be missed dearly.
