Sherm and Loree Toller were long time employees of the Marysville Raceway. Sherm was often heard over the public address system doing on track interviews. He was also an ambassador for dirt track racing in general. His love and dedication to our sport was second to none. Behind a great man who loves motorsports, there is usually an even better woman supporting him. Loree also loved to be at the track. Loree became a long-time scorekeeper in the booth at Marysville Raceway. In fact, even after Sherm passed away, Loree continued to work at the track. Sherm and Loree passed down their love and passion for dirt track racing to their daughters, Sheree and Kaylee, who continue to not only support this event, but are seen numerous times throughout the year at dirt track races.
The track will generate a roster of expected drivers later this week. We are going to inquire through social media outlets and hope to have some positive feedback by Thursday.
