Ensuring that Western Speedway’s patrons didn’t have to put up with fellow fans who were being overly loud and/or annoying, plus pursuing and apprehending those freeloaders who sought to avoid paying admission by attempting to watch the evening’s races from the track’s 1st turn hill or other non-grandstand locations was for many years the responsibility of 1998 “Pioneer” award winner Milt Schop. In his position as head of “Security” and with extreme dedication, Milt carried out his duties with dead seriousness but also with a heart of gold. Those few “extreme case” individuals who sought to physically challenge Milt’s authority quickly paid for their indiscretion with a quick and decisive blow of his large (and very heavy) metal flashlight which he always carried. Living a short distance away from the track on Millstream Road, he was always the last person to leave after the evening’s races, making sure that all fans had left and that the entire property was secure. He was well liked by Speedway officials, fans and competitors alike.
