Owner of Brainerd International Raceway dies off the coast of Florida

   Jed Copham, Brainerd International Raceway                                         

The body of a missing boater found Monday, Nov. 12, was identified by family as Jed Copham, owner of Brainerd International Raceway. NBC2 News in Florida was reporting that the Lee County Sheriff’s Office removed the body from the water near Punta Rassa. Search and rescue teams temporarily suspended their efforts to find the boater Sunday night after he had gone overboard earlier in the day. The call to suspend the search came hours after law enforcement swarmed the waters off the coast of Lee County, near Punta Rassa, around 3 p.m. Sunday. Lee County deputies haven’t released details on how the boater went overboard. Witnesses, however, said an anchored yacht seemed to be the center of the search. Crime scene tape blocked off the Punta Rassa boat ramp while others on the water were being directed away from the area of concern, witnesses said.

Copham and his wife, Kristi, purchased the 600-acre BIR complex in 2006 from Sports International Inc. of Michigan which had owned the facilty since 1994.

Jed Copham, owner of Brainerd International Raceway, died Sunday after falling overboard from a yacht in Florida. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said authorities responded to the Sanibel Causeway to reports of a man overboard. After an extensive search that went late into the night, 46-year-old Copham’s body was recovered Monday morning from the water at Punta Rassa boat ramp. The investigation is ongoing, but police say the accident does not appear to be criminal.

Nancy Hunsley Passes


Nancy Hunsley – August 11, 1945 – October 17, 2018

Nancy Hunsley, Rapid City, formerly of Pierre, passed away at Rapid City Regional Hospital on October 17, 2018.  Nancy and her husband Don were early supporters of Oahe Speedway. Sadly, Don became one of the first of our Oahe Speedway family to pass away in 2006, leaving behind a grandson and a special vehicle that would become a Speedway Champion.  That grandson, Travis Falcon, would take little time in making Grandma Nancy and most assuredly, Grandpa Don, proud of his accomplishments, winning Oahe Speedway Sportsman Championships in 2008, 2009 and 2011.  Nancy missed very few races and winner’s circle celebrations with the Falcon family.


Kathy, Ernie, Kara, Travis and Ty Falcon along with Nancy
September 1, 2009

Please join the Oahe Speedway Racers Board in offering prayers and condolences to  Nancy’s children, Kathy (Ernesto) Falcon, Jim (Heather) Hunsley, and Becky (Ryan) Bear and the entire Hunsley family.
