In recognition of his many years as The Voice of GHR, Phil Martelli has decided to step down from full-time announcing duties starting in 2016. Phil has been an integral part of the success of Grays Harbor Raceway as he has put in countless hours in front of the microphone, talking with drivers in the pits, conducting interviews and much, much more. Phil was presented with the 2015 Outstanding Contribution to the Sport award.
Often unseen, Aaron Reed was presented with the 2015 Outstanding Service award, given to an individual who goes above and beyond for their love of the sport. As the track videographer, Aaron spends most nights behind the lens so fans from all over the country can enjoy the first-class entertainment GHR presents every Saturday night.
