About Us

Cody Dinsmore (Owner & Racing Historian) on the Quaker State fan stage offering trivia during the 2023 Quaker State 400 weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Peach State Speed was an idea years in the making. There's been plenty of stock car history that's been shared around, but very little on my favorite era, the early days. So much history has been lost over the last few decades as those who were among "The Greatest Generation" have been taking the checkered flag for the last time. It's my goal and mission to not only have a place to tell the obscure stories that makes stock car racing history in Georgia so fascinating, but to also remember those who came before us to make the sport what it is today. It's my biggest passion to keep these names and stories alive for future generations.

Cody Dinsmore is a lifelong racing fan, watching his first race at the age of 7 in 2003. Quickly, even at a young age, he began collecting books on racing history and learning about the legends of the past. He began volunteering with the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame in Dawsonville Ga in 2008 at the age of 11.  He began serving on the Board of Directors for the Hall of Fame in 2020 and still continues to do so presently. Cody worked at Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville for 7 years, eventually becoming Karting Operations Manager before leaving in 2019. Cody was a guest historian on a Season 1 episode of "Lost Speedways" with Dale Earnhardt Jr, aired on NBC Sports. He was honored as one of Dawson County's Outstanding Citizen's in 2009, GRHOF Volunteer of the Year in 2012 & 13' as well as the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year in 2021
