The staff of Anderson Speedway is sad to report the news of the passing of Maridene Adams on Wednesday, January 28. She was the spouse of Denny Adams, the long-time “Voice” of Anderson Speedway and mother of office manager Jessica Larson, the youngest of three children. Chris competed in the early years of the ThunderCar division and Jodi has spent timing roaming the pit area gathering information for her dad and occasionally helping in the office.
Maridene was a former employee of the speedway and spent nearly 40 years attending races with her husband.
For the second consecutive year, Anderson Speedway will host the Turkey Bash during Thanksgiving Weekend. The special event scheduled on Saturday Afternoon, November 29 will feature Street Stocks, ThunderCars, Mini Cups along with Front Wheel Drives in Oval and Figure 8 action.
Jerry Dane set the tone for the Front Wheel Drive Oval division but as the year progressed a number of drivers stepped up to challenge for the championship.
Dane won the first three features to open the season but then faltered in the middle stages of the season before rounding out the year with six feature wins and his first Anderson Speedway championship.
