One of drag racing's great behind-the-scenes gentlemen has passed.
Sherk, 75, passed away on June 24, 2018, in Bremerton, Wash.
Sherk's resume revealed a writer chock full of experience. He was the sports editor at The Kitsap Sun in the 1960s before moving on to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Tacoma News Tribune. After 18 years as a sportswriter, the South Kitsap High School graduate worked as a media/public relations professional for more than 30 years in NHRA drag racing. He represented many of the greatest drag racers in the history of the sport, including Don “The Snake” Prudhomme’s team of Larry Dixon, Ron Capps, and Tommy Johnson Jr.; Warren and Kurt Johnson; Gary Beck; Ed “The Ace” McCulloch; JR Todd; Clay Millican; Cruz Pedregon; Kenny Koretsky; Doug Herbert; and Steve Torrence.

There was nothing easy about Tanner Gray’s win on Sunday.
Dodging rain showers throughout the weekend leading to just one hit at the track over the first two days of racing, Gray and the rest of the Pro Stock drivers were left playing a guessing game on a brand new surface, on a green race track, on a strip that was, at times, 60 degrees cooler than at their previous race in Bristol.

Several Pro Stock drivers and teams had harsh words toward the handling of the various weather-related decisions by NHRA to open the weekend at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park.
Chief among the complaints was the decision to run Pro Stock Motorcycle before the Pro Stock class during the one and only professional session on Friday and the ensuing decision to immediately pull the plug on the rest of Friday’s activities prior to Pro Stock’s qualifying run in the early evening hours as light showers fell on the track.
