Join us this Friday, August 2 for the Dick Crook birthday celebration! We will have a full show of B-Mods, Pro Stocks, Hobby Stocks, 4 Cylinders and Mini Wedge.
Mt. Pleasant Speedway will honor a man who nurtured the track for 18 years. Dick and Betty Crook owned and operated the Mt. Pleasant Speedway together for 18 years until Dick passed away at the age of 55 on September 24, 2004. Betty and Mario took over keeping Dick's dream alive. Dick started racing at 17-years-old. Early on in his driving career he raced for Bill Wilkie and then for Ed Johnson. He eventually bought and raced his own cars all over the state of Michigan. Dick and son Mario shared a Modified towards the end of Dick's racing career. Mario drove it Friday nights at Mt. Pleasant Speedway and Dick drove it Saturday nights at Merritt.
