Full Throttle Speedway Announcement,
soon to be known as Desoto Speedway
Full Throttle Speedway, has made some internal changes to the management staff. Kevin Williams will no longer be involved with the speedway so that he can spend more time with his son and his son’s racing career. Mike Chase will only be involved as a silent partner, he will be here on the 9th & 16th of November to assist in those two big events. Dennis Meyer will be running the track as of November 1st 2013. Don Cretty will be the new race director. All of the Full Throttle staff was asked to stay on and continue to be a part of the new team, however some have chosen to leave. We appreciate all the support that the fans and drivers have given to FTS and hope you continue, our goal as the new Management team is to be consistent and fair to all. The schedule & points will remain for the rest of the 2013 season , we will notify you of the two dates “TBA” 11-23 & 12-14 , if we will be adding races.
Our goals for the 2014 racing season
as Desoto Speedway:
-A more consistent race schedule
-Be fair and consistent to our drivers, with as little change to the racing rules & program.
-Be more fan friendly and bring some excitement back to the grandstands, with more driver & fan interactions, along with family fun things and give aways.
-Make the speedway all it can be, a fair, fun, safe, family oriented race track that has the best short track racing in the state.
We appreciate your loyal support and apologize for any inconvenience through this transition.
We hope that this transition will put our management team, staff, drivers and fans all on the same page with communications, announcements and future events. Feel free to contact us through our email email@example.com or call our office at 941-748-3171
F#$% Yeah! Critter! Sign me up, I’ll be running my Sportsman there full time in 2014! Nice job changing the name back too! I never liked Full Throttle. Desoto Speedway honors the tracks history. Yee Ha!
Yes, I did Rick (“change my tune” I think you meant). I can admit when I’m wrong. But racers I knew warned me that they weren’t happy with Chase running things on the pit side. “Silent partner” sounds good to me. Not to bash Mike, but sometimes people good at business don’t have the best “people’s” skills. Problem is they let half the story leak out. Williams out and Chase running the pit side wasn’t attractive to me. However I’ve always enjoyed racing for Critter. I should have known better than to let my emotions get to me and put up a negative post. I’m a “glass half-full” kinda guy dontcha know. LOL
