Emory Stone, a well known man in the racing community, has died.
The longtime owner of the Oglethorpe Speedway Park passed away Tuesday night.
Stone bought the track in 1977. During that time, he operated the business with his family. They added a new lighting system, grandstand and buildings.
"It is a sad somber feeling right now because Mr. Emory has been around for many years," said Randall Jenkins, Oglethorpe Speedway Park Director of Sales and Promotions. "He has done a lot for the community. He has done a lot for the speedway, since he and his family purchased it and they added a lot of good things to it."
Visitation will be held from 6 p.m. to 8p.m. Feb. 14 in the Chapel at Thomas C. Strickland & Sons Funeral Home, 901 West Highway 80, in Pooler.
The funeral will take place at 11a.m. Feb.15 at the Rothwell Street Baptist Church, 216 Rothwell St., in Pooler.
