There’s a management team in place at Middle Road Speedway for 2023. A local father/son combination
will handle daily duties allowing current owner Tim Alexander to focus on family medical issues. Alexander will retain ownership of the facility and advise as necessary.
Alexander’s wife, Carol, is in a battle with a serious illness which was going to force a late start to the season or, going dark for 2023. Craig A. and Craig L. Rutherford have agreed to mann the phones and oversee duties so action can begin on time. Both have extensive race track experience with over 25 years at a number of area raceways. While the elder Rutherord’s physical role will be limited, he will be able to answer phone calls and make decisions. Much of the day to day race details will be left to the younger generation. Craig L. or “Hank” can be reached at 717-994-5399.
