Track Champions: The who’s who of Greenville Pickens Speedway

Placing the names of the track champions on the wall never crossed Pete or Tom Blackwell’s minds until the mid-1970’s. According to Tom Blackwell, a car owner jokingly came up to them (Pete and Tom) and said they should put the track champions on the back-stretch wall. Pete and Tom took the advice and the “Wall of Fame” tradition was started. Little did car owners realize that the tradition and history which started out as a joke is now the envy of many drivers in the country.
