Hall of Fame Inductee - Ron Veach


Ron has been a part of the fabric of Coles County Dragway USA for many years.  He grew up with a passion for sports, as a high school and college athlete while pursuing a degree in radio and television.  He also had, and still has, an aptitude for mechanics, something probably taught to him by his father, an auto shop teacher.  Later, as a racer, he campaigned everything from dragsters all the way to a Pontiac Fiero, and did his share of winning along the way.  He served as chief starter at CCD almost two decades ago, and then had the opportunity to take over the helm as owner-operator of the famed eighth mile, along with his wife Cathy, his dad Ron Senior, and his family.  He still can be found behind the mic on Friday nights, calling passes just like he might have on radio or TV.  It is only fitting that that the person who started the CCD “Hall of Fame” should be inducted.

A family man, a friend to many, and a very wise & helpful man, a fierce competitor, and now a CCD Hall of Fame Inductee.
