Accord, NY - Accord Speedway Names Michele Campbell Miss Accord Speedway For 2016

By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media


Accord Speedway Promoters Gary and Donna Palmer announced Friday afternoon Michele Campbell from Kingston, New York has been named Miss Accord Speedway for the upcoming 2016 racing season. She will replace Erika Decker who has decided to step away from the title she had held since mid-summer of 2011.


Miss Campbell will take over the duties of Miss Accord Speedway when the new season kicks-off on April 15th with all divisions in action.


The sixteen year old, five foot four inch tall teenager resides in Kingston, New York and is no stranger to the Accord Speedway scene as she has been a competitor and a champion while racing in the Junior Slingshot and All Star Slingshot divisions for a number of seasons. She has earned two track titles at Accord in the past and added additional titles at the Oakland Valley Speedway. Michele ran an abbreviated season last year and is undecided at what capacity she will be competing at this year with her new duties at the speedway. She does have the Slingshot racer ready to go and also has a former Andy Bachetti race car at her disposal for Sportsman competition she has driven on just a couple of occasions at Accord.


In catching up to Michele she stated, "I am so honored to take on the role of Miss Accord Speedway. I have assisted Erika a bit in the past and feel this is something I really wanted to do." She further added, "I thank the Palmer Family for having the confidence in me to take over the title as I know Erika did such a great job in performing her duties as Miss Accord Speedway."


When discussing her favorite foods away from the race track, Michele suggests Pizza and Burgers. Michele is an honor role student and once she has completed her education looks to attend Veterinarian School in the future. At home, Michele has her own mini-farm with too many pets to mention in this dialogue. The strong ties Michele has had within the racing community has found her being part of the Accord Family for many a season and will build upon those friendships with her new duties at the speedway. The staff and management at Accord Speedway welcome Miss Campbell to the working staff at the speedway.
