Veteran race official Charles (Charlie) Earwood passed away recently at his home in Punta Gorda, Florida. Road Atlanta fans and competitors will certainly remember Earwood, who spent a great deal of time here and officiated at literally hundreds of SCCA and IMSA events over the years. From 1987-89 he served as General Manager at Sebring Raceway, assisted by his longtime friend John Burns. His calm demeanor made him a perfect race steward, even under the most difficult circumstances. A true southern gentleman, Charlie was respected by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Our sympathies to his wife Ann and sons Terry and Steve.
