Kathie Coulter Takes
Over Promoter Role at Boyd's Speedway for 2018!

Tennessee. She and track owner David Duplissey have agreed on a
lease type agreement for the 2018 season. Duplissey and Dale McDowell
are now removed themselves from the day to day operations of the
“I was hired on as marketing director in the
middle of last summer and I loved every minute of it. So when this
opportunity arose, I knew it was my next step. I’m sure there’s
going to be ups and downs, but no one wants Boyd's to succeed more
than myself,” Coulter stated. Her grandfather, E.A. Boyd,
is the track’s founder. “Racing is something that I
have always had a passion for. I have literally spent every weekend
of my life at a racetrack,” she laughed. “I have loved
working with the drivers and fans, as well as the Chattanooga community.
We had a few charity races and did some outreach and I would love
to do more of that this year. There will be some changes coming,
and hopefully the racers and fans will be happy with the adjustments.
I’m really honored to have this opportunity. There’s
probably only a handful of women promoters around, and I'm humbled
to join that very small group.” |
