Big Diamond Honors our American Heroes


Big Diamond Speedway will continue to honor members of our Military in two ways. Not only do ACTIVE military members receive FREE admission into every race, but beginning this Friday, June 26, all Veterans of our military who have military ID, will receive a FREE meal ticket at each race.

 Veterans will need an official military ID to receive their meal ticket, which is good for one hot dog, one slice of pizza AND one drink. The Veteran Meal Ticket will be given to them when they purchase their admission tickets as long as proper ID is provided.

Friday, JUNE 26  is Blyth's Cleaning Services Night. Lias Tire Modifieds, USS Achey Sportsman, Savage 61 Roadrunner Crazy 8's, four eight lap features, and a 20 lap Sportsman make up feature.  Adult General Admission is $15, Senior Citizen admission is $13.  ACTIVE military with ID and kids 12 and under are FREE!

Coming up on Friday July 3 B&H Landscaping presents the George/Georgie Stevenson Memorial race where the Lias Tire Modifieds will be running a 35 lap feature event paying $4,000 to win and $300 just to take the green.  There will also be a Cash Dash for the Modifieds presented by Mark’s Service Center.  The USS Achey Sportsman will be competing for $1,000 to win in their feature event that evening.  The Savage 61 Roadrunners and 600cc Modifieds will join in on the fun.  There will be a great fireworks display for families to enjoy and celebrate Fourth of July weekend. General Admission for this event will be $25 and children 12 and under and active military with ID are admitted for free. 


 After nearly three decades of raising money for children and adults battling life threatening and debilitating illnesses, George Stevenson passed away in April. Big Diamond, however, is proud to bring the past and present together as track management honors both George the father and Georgie his son, who not only made their mark on racing, but impacted the lives of countless children who suffered for decades.


George's passion for sick and dying kids was famous along the East coast. By partnering with Big Diamond and their drivers and fans, the annual Georgie Stevenson Memorial Race, named in honor of George's late son who was a huge race fan before his death, the speedway became the premier venue to raise money for "George's kids." Now that George has passed on, it's time to recognize him and his efforts.

Gates open at 5:45 PM. Warm ups begin at 7:45. Racing begins at 8:15 PM.

See you at the Big D!
