Loves Park, IL (November 11, 2009)- Just two weeks after the conclusion of a successful 2009 season at Rockford Speedway, preparations are already underway for next year. Speedway crews have been replacing many sections of wall that were impacted during racing action this past season, while the Rockford Best Seal & Stripe crew has been filling various seems around the historic quarter-mile high banked paved oval.
“We have replaced three large sections of our concrete barrier which experienced their share of abuse last year.” Stated Director of Operations David Deery. “Filling the seems will help our track battle another harsh winter, so it is ready to go this Spring.” Speedway crews also refurbished much of the billboard structure which surrounds the track, nearly a dozen racecars made contact with these boards during the exciting season that concluded with over 130 machines taking the track during the October 25 Goblin 250 Enduro.
Racing action will resume next April as a 200 lap Enduro and the 33rd annual Spring Classic will kick off the 63rd season on consecutive Spring weekends, a complete schedule will be released this February. The Rockford Speedway Champions’ Banquet will take place on Saturday night January 23, 2010 at Forest Hills Lodge.
