"Dedication To Dirt"
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.
