Anderson Speedway Suffers Another Great Loss

Action Entertainment and the staff of Anderson Speedway were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of long time racer, employee and icon of Anderson Speedway "Fast" Freddie Jones on Friday, September 17, 2021. Freddie was a racer for around 25 years of his career at the track before becoming an official. His love for racing made him a fixture on Saturday nights as Chief Steward. Getting the cars in proper alignment on the track sometimes proved to be a challenge. If the drivers didn't respond to Freddie's directions, Freddie would get their undivided attention with some of his colorful antics, much to the delight of the large crowds! Freddie later on became the "man on the gate", guarding the pit gate entrance. Go past Freddie without a pit pass...not on your life!  Fred Jones was a gentle, loving, kind man with a big smile for everyone and a gentle laugh. We will definitely miss Fast Freddie! His love for racing rubbed off on his family as his daughter Sandy has been the Anderson scorer over four decades sometimes assisted by his granddaughters.  Our sympathy is extended to the entire Jones family. Farewell Friend.

Anderson Speedway Suffers Great Loss

Anderson Speedway officials are heartbroken to learn of the passing of our great friend and longtime concessionaire, Chuck Huffman. Chuck along with his family served the Anderson Speedway racing community for over 50 years in our concession stands. Fans enjoyed their breaded tenderloins, flat tires, lemon shake ups and many other items, but what they enjoyed the most was the kindness and smiles shared by the Huffman Family, especially Chuck. We will miss seeing our friend sitting in turn two on race nights and send our condolences to his family. Funeral service will be held 1 p.m. on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at Rozelle-Johnson Funeral Service with Rev. Gary McCaslin of Aletheia Fellowship officiating. Graveside rites and burial will follow the service in Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery. Visitation will be Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the funeral home. We think Chuck’s son Brad said it best. “The void is huge” but we will cherish the memories we have of our friend and his memory will live on forever in our hearts.
