|Bobby Garrick from Rock Hill , SC. was a flagman for over 32 years at several tracks in
North and South Carolina. Most notably he worked the old Concord and Metrolina Speedways
in North Carolina when Ralph Earnhardt was running the local dirt series. John Gaskey was
the promoter for both tracks at the time.
He also was the first flagman at the Chester Speedway, designed by the late Dale Earnhardt,
in Chester, SC. He finished his career at the Lancaster Speedway in Lancaster, SC. He
flagged at many other tracks early in his career as they would race five to six nights a week.
Prior to his flagging duties he built cars for car owner Bill Justice. Bill was owner of Justice
Pontiac in Rock Hill, SC.
Bobby Garrick passed in September of 1990. There were two Bobby Garrick Memorial races
held at Lancaster Speedway to honor his long career.
