Rene Charland passed away September 30th. 2013. He was one of Utica-Rome’s all-time greatest, a member of the famed “Eastern Bandits”, and the first real start the track ever had when it first opened in 1961. He was the track champion that year, 1962, and 1964. He had 19 career wins at the track.  He was a fixture at the track for many years, even in the dirt era and was at several of the reunions this past decade.
Our Thoughts and prayers are with Rene Charland and family.
