"Dedication To Dirt" Award
Each season PDTR recognizes a person/s with the "Dedication To Dirt" award. This award is presented for an extra effort to racing. This year the award was given to
The Henry Dickmann Family. For many of the last fifty years, three generations of this family raced here at Plymouth. First it was Leroy who in the early 60’s drove his blue and white,
six cylinder Chevy. Leroy was an easy going racer, who just loved to compete. Next in line was Leroy’s son Henry who would race here nearly forty years. Henry had his father’s
temperament while wheeling a Sportsman and later a Late Model around this track. The third generation Dickmann to race here is Tammy. She competes in the Outlaw Compact
Division where she holds her own with a bunch of young bucks who sometimes like to trade a little paint. Congratulations and thanks for being a part of racing here in Plymouth for
so many years.
