Have you been to the Rim Lately? We’ve Made Some Big Changes
ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Longtime Robertson County citizen and businessman Jerry Criswell and his family announced an ownership change for Highland Rim Speedway back in March. Roger Cunningham, Criswell’s former business partner, sold his portion of the speedway to Criswell. The Criswell family are now the sole owners of the historic facility.
The Rim provides an excellent evening of entertainment for the entire family and now offers fans a close up look at drivers and their machines with meet-and-greets and autograph signings.
With the new ownership now in place, the historic facility was renamed for the 2019 Racing Season. Criswell grew up around The Rim and changing the track’s name was a very hard decision. The new name is Veterans Motorplex at The Rim.
Criswell stated that he wanted to keep some of the original name in honor of everyone that had made this such a great facility in the past. “For 40 plus years this place has been known as The Rim to me personally and that is why this new name is special to me”. The new name provides a fresh start to a new era of racing at the speedway while still preserving some of the historic past. A lot of families have grown up at this place knowing it as “The Rim” and now with the new name they’ll feel right at home every Saturday night.
According to Criswell, “We have a lot of Veterans that support our facility on a weekly basis and this is just another way we have chosen to recognize them by renaming this facility after them. Criswell a veteran himself states our servicemen and women pay a huge debt every day for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and many times they are forgotten as Veterans. Those same freedoms they provided allows us the opportunity to enjoy the sport of Stock Car Racing and during the racing season we plan to recognize our Veterans in attendance on a regular basis.”
Over the last few years, Cunningham, Criswell and their families have worked diligently with the local Veterans, non-profits, and community to provide a clean family style facility for all race fans to come out and enjoy some great racing action every Saturday night.
The Criswell family has a lot of long-range plans and additional activities that will be introduced along with the speedway facilities. They will be announcing those plans as they materialize.
The New Veterans Motorplex at The Rim is located at 6801 Kelly Willis Road in Greenbrier TN. (615) 643-8725
