New Promoter at MMS


Vir

Recommended Posts

It is rumored, by a reliable source, that Terry Dickerson has taken over the controls of Montgomery Motor Speedway. Friends from the area are happy to hear someone like Terry is coming to run things. The racetrack is a beautiful 1/2 mile facility that is known for drawing big name shorttrack drivers. The crowds last year were sparse, but with the right promoter MMS could become a premier track again. Good luck to Terry and best wishes for bringing the track back to where it was when Bob Harmon was promoting races.

i think Terry should focus on SAS and USRA first.

Montgomery Motorhead,

 

At this point the only additional info I have is that a fellow named Terry Dickerson, who I believe is out of Texas, is leasing the track from Bill. And I feel certain that Mr. Dickerson knows the importance of posting a final schedule as soon as possible, so I'm thinking he and his team (whoever that may include) will move on that fairly quickly.

 

Hope that helps.

I have heard Terry was recently at MMS scoping things out. This came from someone who talked to him and is in the know at MMS. By the way, my friend was very impressed with Mr. Dickerson. There is some concern among the fans that SLM's are not high on Terry's menu.

They have the BAMA Super Late Model Series raced there about 8 times, average about 20 cars. The Pro Late Models class raced about 8 times also, similar to the ASA series. The NASCAR SES and the Outlaw Modifieds raced there. According to this years schedule, they have the Hooters Series and Georgia Asphalt Series on there scedule, not sure about the ASA race. They had Uncle Bob Memorial All Pro 250, but only 11 SLM's showed up on the results page, $15,000 to win???

I talked with Terry tonight. Here's what he told me.

 

He said that he had been on the road for the past two or three weeks, mostly on his equipment business, but also taking care of racing stuff. He was at the ASA banquets and the ASA Southern drivers' meeting and visiting several race tracks where he had contacts. He said he learned a lot in a very short time.

 

He emphasized that SAS and USRA are his "first objectives" and that any discussions he had with various racing organizations are simply that. Discussions.

 

Terry is a business man and is constantly looking for any deal that might present itself. Anyone who has spent any time at all with him knows that those two cell phones are going all the time with some deal or other.

 

But, at this point any talks are simply that. Talks.

 

And before we hung up, he wanted me to say it again. "My 1st objectives are San Antonio Speedway and USRA."
