Echoes of Valley Thunder



“Echoes of Valley Thunder: Remembering Debo Park Motor Speedway.” Echoes of Valley Thunder by Rick Yocum Relive the history of this quarter-mile dirt oval that was tucked along the Ohio River near the small village of Rayland, Ohio. From 1950 through 1965 race fans from a three-state area made the trek to Debo Speedway on Saturday nights to watch their favorite drivers compete in a variety of racing machines, from pre-war coupes referred to as “jalopies” or “sportsman” cars to ground-shaking fuel-injected super-modifieds. Plus meet the men who piloted the machines and hear, in their own words, what it was like to participate “back in the day.” Author Rick Yocum captures the character – and characters -of this long-ago era throughout 188 pages, highlighted by more than 90 photos and illustrations, many from never-before-shared family collections.
