Bobby Hamilton, the late Mt. Juliet-based racer who lost a battle to cancer earlier this year, will have a street named after him at Memphis Motorplex Park on Saturday, a day which Governor Phil Bredesen has designated “Bobby Hamilton Day”

The newly named “Bobby Hamilton Boulevard” will be a street leading to the grandstands. Drivers will also carry a special memorial decal on their race trucks in tribute to Hamilton, who won the Memphis track championship in 2004.
