Boyd's Speedway To Host Cleveland's ShamRock Race March 22

Thursday, March 6, 2014

New Owner and operator of the Boyd's Speedway and former Hav-A-Tampa Dirt National Champion Dale McDowell of Chickamagua announced Wednesday that Boyd's Speedway will host the 19th Southern All-Star ShamRock race, Saturday night, March 22.  

The 1/3 mile clay banked oval dirt track located on the Tennessee and Georiga border near East Ridge takes over the host duties of the annual event that used to kick-off the racing season at nearby Cleveland Speedway, less than 20 miles up Interstate-75. Recent bankruptcy proceedings (or the lack thereof) are making less likely that the Cleveland Speedway will host racing in its foreseeable  future, said officials.  

More details will be made available in the coming days of the ShamRock event on Boyd's Speedway's official internet site

Tennessee finished with a 25-8 record; not bad at all for any other team in the country, not named Tennessee ... (click for more)

North Carolina Corporation Resubmits Rezoning Request For 38,000-Square-Foot Grocery Store On Signal

And while Toys-R-Us seemed to be an unstoppable force, they have finally succumbed to online ordering and simplicity.  But if you think about it, when Toys-R-Us came into existence, imagine the number of “mom ‘n pop” toy stores that ...

Roy Exum: A Very Stupid Letter

Not a one of you has ever heard of a lady named Megan Jones Bell.   But, because our state legislature is determined to allow California’s unique brand of crazies to pull Tennessee down to its loathsome level, our state lawmakers probably never will.
