Mel Reck passes . . .
Email received from Steve Gibbs, NHRA...
Mel Reck, the popular announcer at San Gabe, Fontana, and Manager at Irwindale. I just found out that Mel passed away last Monday, quite unexpectedly. He had been in good health, but fell victim to a cerebral aneurysm. He was 83.
There will be a memorial service for Mel next Monday, January 18, at 3:00 p.m., at Arlington Mortuary, 9645 Magnolia Ave., Riverside, CA.
Mel’s family has asked that we pass this along to those who knew him.
This one hits pretty close to home
Vaya con Dios mi amigo.
Please pass this along to racers . . .
