Aug 14 - 9th Annual Jeremy “Jake” Dickman Memorial

Join us this Friday, August 14 for the 9th Annual Jeremy “Jake” Dickman Memorial. We will have a full show of B-Mods, Pro Stocks, Hobby Stocks, 4 Cylinders and Mini Wedge.

Jeremy Dickman had a passion for dirt track racing and Mt. Pleasant Speedway. He ran the Mt. Pleasant Speedway website and worked on getting sponsorship for the track. Moreover Dickman was the founder and President of Y4 Motorsports Marketing which promoted and helped get sponsorship for drivers and their respective teams. Dickman also covered the events at Mt. Pleasant Speedway weekly for the Morning Sun.

In 2012 after his death, Dickman was honored at the 29th annual Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He became the fourth recipient of the Dick Beebe Memorial Award (for his contributions to motor sports).

Over the years Dickman also became the Executive Director of 'Cans from Race Fans,' a non-profit organization that aimed at combating hunger in the mid-Michigan area. Cans From Race Fans will be collecting non perishable food items at the race. Donations can be dropped off under the pavilion on the grandstand side where Jeremy’s family will be. Donations will benefit the Isabella Community Soup Kitchen.
