This Saturday night June 30 is ‘All Star Saturday Night’ at Rockford
Speedway, with the return of the Kar Korner All Star 100 for the ARCA
Midwest Tour Super Late Models. The best Super Late Model racers in
America are set to converge upon Rockford Speedway, trying to enter
themselves into the history books with some of the most recognizable
names in short track racing. Drivers like Mark Martin, Bobby Allison,
Dick Trickle, Joe Shear, Butch Miller, Rich Bickle, Eddie Hoffman,
Erik Jones and Ty Majeski have won this great mid-summer classic…who
will add their name to the list?
A full field of Super Late Models are expected for this event,
including former All Star 100 winner Rich Bickle, former National
Short Track champion Jon Reynolds Jr, Joe Shear Classic champion
Austin Nason, multi-time Slinger Speedway champion Steve Apel and
multi-time Grundy County Speedway champion Ricky Baker along with
Indiana’s Paulie Shafer, Florida’s Dalton Zehr, Minnesota’s Jonathon
Eilen and many, many more!
Also joining the fray this Saturday night are the Stanley Steemer
NASCAR Late Models, running their ‘Star Spangled 76’ lap feature race,
making ‘All Star Saturday Night’ a ‘can’t miss’ Late Model
Doubleheader. Multi-time track champion Michael Bilderback looks to
repeat as winner of the 76 lap race while former ’76’ winners Matt
Berger, Alex Papini and Jon Reynolds Jr will also be on a quest to
return to victory lane. A solid field of NASCAR Late Models are
expected next weekend in what is one of the most anticipated races of
the NASCAR Late Model season!
The Kickstart Roadrunners are also on the card Saturday night and
there’s also a big Fireworks display scheduled at the end of the show!
