Rockford Speedway celebrates its 70th anniversary, and it will be a night to remember! Racing is set to include the four core divisions at Rockford Speedway; the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Bargain Hunter Sportsman, Miller Lite American Short Trackers and Kickstart Roadrunners. Fans can expect several specials from the moment they walk through the gate until the moment they leave. There are admission specials for every 70th person through the gate as well as anyone who can prove they're 70 years old. The first 700 fans will receive a commemorative 70th anniversary poster and the first 70 people through the gates also get a FREE bag of popcorn. Keep your ears open for the FREE concession specials throughout the night, available to the first 70 customers at each particular concession stand.
Classic Cars and Retro Memorabilia will be on display and the DOC Drift Racers will be on hand to display their cars and sign autographs (from 5pm to 7pm) and then perform an exhibition as part of their multi-state 'Pro Throwdown' at intermission.
Don't miss the HUGE fireworks display to cap off the night, and there could be a surprise or two added by the time Saturday rolls around.
