His Auto Racing involvement began in 1960. He was a Western Speedway crew member for Jim Gallaugher with the old historic race car. 1961 was his first year as a race car driver. His car was a 1934 Ford 5 window coupe Stock Car. Driving that season, he spent many hours with George (spin) Sheridan and Donny Wilson from Wilson and Proctor Company building Ford Flathead engines with all the tricks to making a flathead stock perform. He also admitted that he was living his dream racing against the guys he idolized when he was 12 and 13 years old. They were Dave Cooper, Dick Varley, Gary Kershaw, Jerry Silvester, Al Smith, Billy Foster and others. After an unfortunate accident in the mid season at Western, he had to sit out for a couple of weeks. The next weekend, Billy Foster drove his car. He had 4th fast time and a clean sweep with winning the dash, the fast heat and the main event. Dave Cooper drove it in Nanaimo on the Wednesday night and won the main event. The following weekend he went to the Haney, Vancouver track on a Sunday afternoon and Tom Urdley drove it and won the main event. He returned to driving the next week and continued on.
On July 20th, 1963, the Stock Cars travelled to the SeaTac Speedway in Seattle to put on their own program. He drove his #56 car and won the main event. Another big night for him was the 50 lap Stock Car Championship race at Western Speedway where he ran very competitively except for a last lap shot that he received. He ended the 1963 season 9th in points and also received the Western Speedway Rookie of the Year award. After competing in the Stock Car classes, he upgraded into a B Modified racecar from Bob Vantreight. As well as driving it for two years, he was also very involved with building parts and equipment for many racers. His first “B” Modified race was in Nanaimo. He set fast time, won the dash and was second in the main event. After six weeks, he went to Boise Idaho with Reg and Anne Midgley accompanying Billy Foster. He decided to assist and crew for Billy at Boise, Pocatello, Salt Lake, Denver, then back to Pocatello and Boise again. Their second trip was Edmonton, Salt Lake City and Denver. Billy had won all main events except three and had clean sweeps at four of the tracks.
He had continued for many years with lots of accomplishments being involved with building and supplying lots of racing parts and equipments for many well known folks as well as his own updated goodies. Anyhow, it is gratifying to give Gordie Alberg an induction into this Hall of Fame.
