Richard Warner "Dickie"  Boswell

Feb 15th, 1942 - October 5th, 2021

Dickie , Honey or Boz as he was called lived in Maryland most of his racing years raising a family; married to Mary Ellis of Queenstown his love of 40 years. A graduate of Bladensburg High School, Dickie entered the US Army as a Paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division.

Dickie was a racer at heart and loved being part of the race community. He was a fierce competitor but also gracious and rarely did Dickie meet someone and not make a favorable impression or an immediate friend. Whether it was Speed Boat Racing or Stock Car racing Dickie went fast and had fun.

His races at Old Dominion Speedway were Legendary (over 50 racing wins) and Dick Gore “Dickie” will be here on May 20th to relive those experiences with you as only Dickie Gore can! Racing in those years was different, clearly Dickie Boswell raced in NASCAR’S Glory Days.  

 

Not only did Dickie race Late Models at Old Dominion (Home of the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car) for many years he was a frequent racer in The Xfinity Series. He competed in 57 races in that series from 1981-1988 with a brief stint in ARCA in 1985.

 

Dickie is preceded in death by his Son Michael Boswell and leaves behind a great family including daughters, grand children, and son Richard who is a former racer and today a Xfinity Crew Chief at Stewart-Hass racing.

 

The Race Teams, Dominion Raceway & The Boswell's look forward to remembering Dickie on May 20th, 2023 at a race that Dickie likely would have won.  All of us look forward to having you and your family at this special race celebrating one of racings greats. Please make plans to attend May 20th for 200 laps of racing thrills and memories!! 

RACE DAY SCHEDULE TBD
