Bob Potter Has Done It Again

by Sharon Fancher
I once again returned to Putnam County Speedway with an eagerness to see the recent improvements to the facility and track, I was once again amazed at the dedication Bob Potter has put forth trying to satisfy his racing community. From the banking in turn four, pit slabs all with electric, to the new tech shed just to mention a few of the improvements.

He has also made some adjustments to some of the class rules, payouts and track rules as well. He is very dedication to enforcing those rules also. From last season to this season I have seen what the racing community can do to and for an Owner of a Speedway. Bob Potter has went from trying to please everyone to finally realizing you can't please everyone and can have some driver suggestions, but in the end the Owner,and Officials need to have the final say. So with all this taking place it has finally made for some major changes at Putnam County Speedway. Very good changes I might add.

Mr. Potter is focusing not only on the enforcement of the rules, but also intends on making the 2002 season the safest possible year that he can for everyone who attends his Speedway. I must say I was really impressed with the new Staff and how well organized they seem to be and all the improvements that have currently been made.

I spoke with Bob for just a few minutes, while he was telling me to "Tighten" my truck and car up (Because God knows I couldn't ride a bicycle and park it straight!!) but he made the comment to me, "I don't mind doing these things as long as everyone appreciates it." That statement from him I will recall for a long time. These Owners don't want to just be known as someone that gives us a place to race, they want to feel the appreciation for trying to do their best for us as a racing. Potter gets an A+ for his effort in trying from my point of view. (Even if he tells me to tighten up every time I attend his track)

Bob Potter's track still has some of the finest dirt track racing I've had the privilege of attending and also a top notch facility to just relax and enjoy watching these races.
