Very soon, Kids will be headed back to school and summer will be merely a memory. With that in mind, the final Kids Night of 2017 is this Saturday night!

Bring the Kids to Cintas Kids Night this Saturday August 12 at Rockford Speedway and be part of what is always a fun event. Kids 11 and under get in FREE on Saturday night, plus those same Kids are asked to bring their Bikes to the track for Kids Bike Races at Intermission! Throughout the night, there will be Kids Bike Giveaways as part of the ‘Great Bike Giveaway’…with Bikes for boys and girls donated by racing teams, track employees and fans.

The racing schedule Saturday includes the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Bargain Hunter Sportsman, Miller Lite American Short Trackers and the Central States Super Cups. Gates open at 5 PM with the CoLin Metals Fast Dashes going green at 7:07 PM. Don’t miss the “last blast” before the new school year…it’s Cintas Kids Night this Saturday August 12 at Rockford Speedway!


Next Saturday night August 19 is ‘Summer’s Last Stand’ presented by K&N Filters, which includes a full night of racing and giveaways for fans! Those in attendance will have the chance at hundreds of prizes courtesy of K&N Filters and also will be able to catch FIVE divisions of racing on track, including the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Miller Lite American Short Trackers, Kickstart Roadrunners, Hornets and Illini Midgets. Grandstands open at 5 PM next Saturday night, with racing set to begin at 7:07 PM.

In two weeks, it’s time to ‘bring on the boats’ as Windsor Auto Sales presents ‘Nicks Beatin & Bangin Boat Race!’ You’ll see boats without trailers, towed by cars, trucks and vans on a liquefied race track with no winner ’til the last boat sails’ in this truly unique rolling demo derby!
