Reg came onto the Auto Racing scene in the mid-fifties, just after Western Speedway opened it's doors in 1954. He has done just about everything a person could do at a racetrack, except the obvious thing -- he has never driven a race car in the thirty-plus years he has been involved. Reg has been a car owner, track official, club executive member and finally, a race track promoter. In 1961, Reg served his first term as President of the Vancouver Island Track Racing Association (V.I.T.R.A.) Reg was also the President of the Canadian-American Modified Racing Association (C.A.M.R.A.) in the early sixties. This was the circuit that started Victoria's Billy Foster on the road to the Indianapolis 500. In late 1966, Reg became the promoter of Victoria's Western Speedway. This position he held for a number of years. Over the years, he brought in "name" drivers to compete at the bigger races at Western. Such names as Bobby Allison, Roger Ward, Janet Guthrie and a host of other well-known International stars have competed in Victoria. In 1970, Reg was instrumental in developing and promoting a Northwest racing series called the International Drivers Challenge. There were two divisions-Super Stocks and Super Modifieds. As well as being the promoter, Reg spent quite a bit of his time behind the microphone at the Speedway. He was the track announcer for many seasons and was very good at this job. He headed up the International Pro Stock series in the late 1970's. Reg has also served as President of the Western Auto Racing Promoters Association. In 1983, Reg received the Victoria Sportsman of the Year Award.
