PAT PETRIE
...
Pat Petrie was also born into a racing family. His cousins included 1964 Champion Sam Sauer and his brother, former President Elmer. Pat's father, Sam Petrie, was quite a mechanic and Pat had fallen in love with modified coupe racing at a young age.
...
Sam provided Pat with his first cars and Pat developed into a very good racer right from his first season, which was 1964.
...
Pat developed a reputation as a hard charger who had sympathy for the car. He drove fast and learned to take a few chances, but not dangerous ones. While there is always a learning curve in racing, Pat went up his curve rapidly and didn't bend too many cars along the way. This rewarded him well with top finishes and quite a few victories during his training period. It was in the 1970's that Pat really came into his own with the coupes and with the management of the Club. While his Dad was voted into the Board of Directors in his first year of eligibility, Pat followed along a little later, but made the most of his opportunities.
In 1977, Pat was elected Vice President for the first time. This coordinated with winning his first CARC Championship over a good competitive field. His Championship was highly regarded among the Club and he was recognized as a deserving Champ. In 1978, Pat was re-elected Vice President and followed that up in 1979 by serving in that capacity again.
1979 was a landmark year in the CARC. The battle for the CARC Championship was intense and at the end of the season, it came down to two drivers: Pat Petrie and Chuck Starr.
...
Pat had to share the title in 1979 with Chuck Starr but that didn't diminish the quality of the racing or of either driver.
...
In 1981, Pat was elected the Chairman of the Board of Directors, then finally in 1983, was elected President of the CARC. This, along with his two championship titles, ensured him a place as a Lifetime Member of the Club. He served in each capacity with honor and dignity. I have gotten to know Pat recently and know him as a kind, caring type of guy.
Pat has also provided a racing family tree that carried out of the CARC into other areas.
...
Pat's two sons are currently racing in Las Vegas, Nevada. By the way, Pat won his final main event in Las Vegas before retiring.
It is with respect and honor that we now induct Pat Petrie into the Colorado Auto Racing Hall of Fame, Class of 2010.
