All of us at River Cities Speedway would like to congratulate Wayne Nelson on being elected into the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame.
Nelson, the sports editor at the Herald, began his career at the Valley City Times-Record in 1976, then joined the Jamestown Sun (1980-95). He's been at the Herald since 1995, covering primarily UND sports and auto racing.
He's a five-time selection as the NDAPSSA sportswriter of the year (1986, 1988, 1998, 2001, 2009), has won numerous writing awards and was part of the Herald staff that won the Pulitzer Prize for community journalism during the 1997 flood.
