Jody Deery Steps Away From Rockford Speedway

ROCKFORD, Ill. — Without much fanfare, Jody Deery stepped away last Saturday from her active role as president and CEO of Rockford Speedway. At age 95, Deery has been experiencing some health issues but until recently was at the speedway office every day and tending to business on race days. “She will still be at the races, mostly on weekend events.”. Jody Derry took over the reins of the speedway after her husband, Hugh, passed away unexpectedly in July of 1984. Her operating of the raceway earned her Racing Promotion Monthly Auto Racing Promoter of the Year honors in 1994. He loved the circus and anything he thought he could put from the circus into the race track, he would.
