ROY DEESE JR., KING OF THE HILL WITH HIS NINTH LATE MODEL TITLE AS DIRT CAPITOL CLOSES 2014 WITH ITS AWARDS BANQUET
December 8th, 2014
HAGERSTOWN, MD: It’s been just more than a year since a big change took place at Hagerstown Speedway with the Dirt Capitol LLC team, composed of Ernie Davis and daughter Keya Davis as General Manager taking the reins at the speedway following 34 years of operation by the Plessinger family.
After the new team sped into action and introduced the 2014 schedule, the first scheduled program on March 9th was weathered out but the following Saturday, a five division show was in the record books.
Seven months of racing later with four rain outs and two flooded out (yes, the first since 1989) dates, Dirt Capitol reached the end of the season and celebrated Saturday night at the Elks Lodge in Hagerstown, honoring drivers and others for their achievements. Read more »
