14 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JULY 27,1978 Summit Point Speedway Is Up For Sale Again; To Continue To Operate Summit Point peedway, which has had its ups and downs in the nine years since con- struction work started on the 2 mile multi-million dollar road racing course back in the Summer of 1969, is for sale again, according to Thomas DeLashmutt, who, along with his brother, owns the racing plant. Put even though the track is on the market, DeLashmutt said sports car races will continue to he run at the track this Summer and in the future. DeLashmutt, an Arlington land developer, says his brother Basil would like to sell the racing plant, but he would not. Thomas and his brother have owned the track for the past three years and Thomas reports it is fully depreciated so it's a pretty good investment for someone in- terested in sports car racing. The DeLashmutt's say, however, that there is no pressure to sell, as no asking price for the track was given. The track is used almost every weekend for nine months a year, offering sports car, motorcycle and kart races as well as serving as the site for driving schools for would-he race car drivers. Thomas DeLashmutt reports he has suggested to the Sports Car ' Club .of America (Washington Region), that they buy it since it is entirely suitable for them if they operate it as a business. Thomas DeLashmutt is a motor sports car competitor himself. The track was constructed in 1969, on for former H, H. Ker- cheval farm of some 375 acres, located about a mile south of Summit Point and about eight miles from Charles Town. It is an asphalt track with a 4,000-ft. long and 50-ft. wide straight- away, with the remainder of the course a 30-foot roadway. The initial promoters of the facility were: Noel Clark, a contractor of Potomac, Md., who handled the construction work; Fort Montgomery, of Silver Spring, the architect; and Pat Good- man, owner of Ascot Motors of Rockville, Md. Since completion of the track it has changed ownership several times, the last time having been three years ago.
