The fastest cars. The bravest drivers.
They return this Saturday night July 28.
The Must See Racing Sprint Cars bring their unique blend of speed and
excitement to Rockford Speedway Saturday with the 3rd Annual
‘Sprintacular.’ The Sprint Cars, equipped with their high-horsepower
engines and wings, are again set to push the limits around the
high-banked quarter mile in search of the fastest laps ever turned at
the 71 year old facility.
Drivers from six states are scheduled to take to the track, including
three-time Must See Racing Series champion Jimmy McCune, two-time
Little 500 winner Jacob Wilson, former Turkey Night Grand Prix winner
Bobby Santos and National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom.
Sprint Cars first take to the track for an hour long practice session
from 3:30 until 4:30 PM. Fans are encouraged to get to the track early
and view the Sprinters going through their practice paces. Grandstand
gates will officially open at 5 PM, with Must See Sprint Car Speed
Trials beginning at 5:30 PM.
Along with the Sprint Cars, the Midwest Compact Touring Series makes
it return to Rockford Speedway, bringing four cylinder racers together
from five different states. Completing the evening’s card are the
Bargain Hunter Sportsman and the Miller Lite American Short Trackers.
All divisions will run a complete show, with the Sprint Cars
headlining the night with their 50 lap feature event. The Co-Lin
Metals Fast Dashes for the Sportsman and Short Trackers will kick
things off at 7:07 PM.
Adult admission to the ‘Sprintacular’ is $18, Children (ages 6-11) are
admitted for $9, while Kids 5 and under are admitted FREE. Don’t
