‘IRONMAN CHALLENGE’ ADDS INCENTIVE FOR ENDURO DRIVERS WHO GO THE DISTANCE IN 2018

This season, Rockford Speedway is set to host three endurance races featuring four cylinder automobiles. The driver who is able to make the most laps in those three races stands to make gains both on the track and inside their wallets.

Offered for the first time ever, the ‘Ironman Challenge’ bonus pays out $1 per lap (as much as a $650 bonus) to the driver who can complete the most laps in each of the three enduros hosted by Rockford Speedway during the 2018 racing season. The first event of the three race chase is the WXRX 200 this Saturday April 7, followed by the all-new Town Fair 200 scheduled for Sunday June 2 and the traditional season-ending Goblin 250 on Sunday October 21.

Each endurance race at Rockford Speedway offers many ways for drivers to “cash in,” including a purse paid out to the top 20 finishers plus a $500 first place prize and numerous other bonuses including for Best Appearing Car, Highest Finishing Station Wagon, Highest Finishing Automatic Transmission Equipped Car, Highest Finishing driver under 18 & over 55 and a $50 bonus to randomly selected car not in top 20 and a $50 Hard Luck Award.

An Entry Form for this weekend’s WXRX 200 is still available on the right side of the main page at rockfordspeedway.com. The Pre-Entry deadline is Wednesday night April 4 at 11:59 PM, with Post Entries accepted until 11:45 AM on Race Day.
