Speedbowl Enthusiast Sid DiMaggio To Be Recognized By Connecticut Sports Writers’ Alliance

When it comes to the Waterford Speedbowl, very few people enter the gates of track weekly during racing season with more passion for the shoreline oval than Tom “Sid” DiMaggio.

Over the last decade DiMaggio has set himself apart when it comes to life at the Speedbowl by making himself the track’s greatest preserver of its history.

DiMaggio, of Waterford, will be honored for that passion on April 28 by the Connecticut Sports Writer’s Alliance when the group rewards him with its annual John Wentworth Good Sport Award at their 72nd Gold Key Dinner at the Aqua Turf in Southington.

DiMaggio has spent years compiling the statistical history of the Speedbowl’s 63 years of competition. He regularly produces and distributes video work of weekly racing competition at the track and also produces the track’s weekly program.

And DiMaggio and his video crew have put in years of work in producing a documentary that will document the track’s history. The documentary is expected to be released in 2014.

“The passion and dedication he’s given not only the Speedbowl – but the auto racing community in general – rivals that of anyone at this level” Speedbowl owner Terry Eames said in a release from the track.

The John Wentworth Good Sport Award honors individuals who unselfishly devote their time to promotion of athletics in their communities. For more information on attending the Gold Key Dinner, check the Connecticut Sports Writers’ Alliance web page.
