To The Herald-Whig:

I was extremely honored to join the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce Business Hall of Fame.

I want to thank the committee who selected me to receive this prestigious award and I am humbled to receive it. I also want to thank the city of Quincy, the Quincy Park District, the Quincy news media which covered our events so well and all the many businesses that helped sponsor the hundreds of karting races over the past 55 years.

Also, I want to thank the thousands of customers who purchased merchandise from the Traeder family and believed in us since we opened TNT in July 1961.

Quincy is a wonderful community and has been good to me and my family. I hope Quincy feels we have been good to them.


Gus Traeder
