    The way I look at it is people that will not practice social distancing are just being selfish. It is not a constitutional issue, it is doing what is right for each other. We’ll see how they think when it is their mom, dad, or grandparents that are taken by Covid-19.

    I expect the governor to shut this down. Hate to see a lot of people show up to get run off.
    Good Luck to all that attend!

    If you want the latest updates and have time to read some interesting comments, go to the Daugherty Speedway Facebook page. There's a letter posted from the State of Indiana. Will definitely be interesting to see how this turns out.

    They are allowed to have limited practice starting May 11th per the new order. Thus, the show this weekend will most likely not be happening.

    On their facebook page, they say they will refund those who purchased tickets. Hopefully, those who bought tickets will get their money back.

    Personally, I would not have bought tickets to it, even if I lived in that area, because it is pretty obvious to me that the chance it would happen are slim and none.

    I was wondering who now owns or promotes this track. I think Mr.Daugherty had purchased this facility when the Kamps (previous owners) had lost it due to possible bankruptcy. I know that the Kamps also owned the K-Motion company, who produce valve train components. I understand that their products are still offered by Jegs and Summit Racing, and K-motion is still in business. I had heard that Mr. Daugherty sometimes had problems with track prep. I also heard that he had attempted promoting, I think, a Summer Nationals event at Vermillion County Speedway (aka Danville, now gone ) in Illinois with poor results. I attended the old Boswell Speedway many times while owned by the Kamps. I thought Gayle Kamp did a very good job with her efforts. I still have some of their programs which have pictures from the past when the track was asphalt. When it was asphalt there were actual short straightaways between corners 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, not a true oval, so to speak. I believe that an ASA race was held there at one time. Just looking for some input or information.
