With Mother’s Day on the way this Sunday, we invite you to treat your mom to a night out.

This Saturday May 12 is “Ladies Night” at Rockford Speedway! Ladies admission is just $5 and with admission prices that low, mom will certainly get her money’s worth!

Five divisions are slated to take to the track this Saturday night, including the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Bargain Hunter Sportsman and T.E.D. Transit Bandits along with the season debuts of the Original Sixers and the Winged Women on Wheels. Adult admission is $12 (with Ladies admitted for $5), Children $6 and Kids 5 & under FREE. Gates open at 5 PM with racing at 7:07 PM.

Ladies Night…oh what a night! This Saturday at Rockford Speedway!


The first Kids Night of 2018 is next Saturday night May 19, presented by Northwest Bank. Kids 11 and under are always admitted FREE on Kids Night and it’s guaranteed that there is something exciting happening on a Rockford Speedway Kids Night. Next week features several cool happenings.

The first five-hundred Kids ages 11 and under through the gate next weekend receive a FREE Poster. Then, at Intermission, all Kids 11 and under are welcome onto the track for the Kids Coin Scramble presented by Northwest Bank. After the racing has concluded, it will be time to watch a School Bus fly! Kids of all ages will be thrilled and mystified by the School Bus Jump…as a full-size school bus takes flight across the Rockford Speedway infield.

Divisions racing on Kids Night next weekend include the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Miller Lite American Short Trackers, T.E.D. Transit Bandits and Kickstart Roadrunners. Gates open at 5 PM, with Racing at 7:07 PM. Adult admission is $12, with Kids 11 and under admitted FREE.
