I got the sad news last night that our friend Sid Harchelroad of Harchelroad Motors had unexpectedly passed away earlier in the week. Please keep his family and employees in your thoughts during this difficult time.
I first met Sid at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event three years ago. Sid was third-generation dealer and he was known for specializing in Corvettes and Callaways. He was very engaging and told us he loved our website and repeatedly let me know that he wanted to be an advertiser. After seeing each other last year at Bloomington Gold in Indy, we finally got Harchelroad Motors on-board last summer.
In my brief time of knowing Sid, I learned that he was all about having fun and wanted his dealership to be known for the same. Harchelroad Motors has previously have hosted all kinds of Corvette shows and driving events.
Earlier this year, Sid and Mid America Motorworks’ Mike Yager had just teamed up to launch a new Corvette event this summer called “Funfest in the Midwest” which would take some of the best parts of Corvette Funfest to Motorsports Park Hastings in Hastings, Nebraska. Unfortunately, that event has been canceled in light of this week’s loss.
It is a personal regret that I didn’t know Sid longer or better, and our prayers go out to his family including his wife Carol and son Dillon, who we also met at Bloomington Gold last year.
Funeral services are planned for Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, 11 a.m. (MT) at the Zion Lutheran Church of Imperial with the Rev. David Kahle officiating. A celebration of life is also Tuesday, Feb. 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. (MT) at the Wellington School Gym in Imperial.
