WKA sends thoughts and prayers to Charlie Hodge family

10.28.2010 - WKA is saddened to learn that former member, sponsor and all-around supporter Charlie Hodge passed away Thursday morning after a long illness. Charlie was 52 years old.

Charlie was the owner of Hodge Racing Supply, a full-service kart shop located in Monroe, N.C. A Long Island native, Hodge moved to North Carolina several years ago and continued as a WKA sponsor and fixture at Speedway Pavement nationals until last year. Hodge Racing Supply was also a former sponsor in the WKA Speedway Dirt Series and a multi-time exhibitor at WKA's trade show, KartFest.

Arrangements are at Hungerford & Clark Funeral Home; 110 Pine St, Freeport N.Y. 11520. Calling hours are Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Those who would like to send flowers may mail to Laurie Hodge at 165 Sherman St., Brentwood, N.Y. 11717.

WKA will sorely miss Charlie's presence and support at racers and events, and sends its thoughts and prayers to Laurie Hodge and the rest of Charlie's family. To view a 4-cycle.com thread devoted to Charlie's memory, visit karting.4cycle.com/showthread.php?t=346599.
