Diamond Park Speedway family suffers huge and sudden loss

NASHVILLE, Ark. (Oct. 18, 2022) – The owners and staff of the Diamond Park Speedway suffered a huge loss this past week with the sudden and tragic passing of head scorer Miki Godwin. 

Miki had been a speedway employee under current ownership since 2017 and was a familiar face both when the gates were open and even when they were not. 

Godwin was more than just a scorer on race nights. She also handled driver 1099, sponsorship opportunities, really wherever help was needed – she was always willing to lend a hand to make her second home the best it could be.

Survivors include her mother Brenda Godwin and Thomas Free of Murfreesboro; her son Austin White of Nashville (Nathan Johnson) of Russellville; daughter Morgan White of Nashville; special daughters Bailey Goldman of Nashville; Makayla Huffman of Delight; as well as her brother and sister Garry (Tammy) Nichols of Paragould.

The family will receive friends and family from 6-8 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) at Latimer Funeral Home in Nashville.

Funeral services will be 2 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 19, at Diamond Park Speedway, with burial to follow at College Hill Cemetery, under the direction of Latimer Funeral Home in Nashville.
