PAPINI, CINA, LUNDBERG HOT HEADING INTO JUNE
Three drivers in three different divisions have gotten off to hot starts so far this 2013 season. Alex Papini’s hot start in the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models has been well documented. A winner in four of his five Saturday night starts, and five of his six late model starts in 2013, along with two fast times has made Papini the driver to beat in Saturday night’s premier division. Nick Cina Jr has very been dominant so far in the Miller Lite American Short Tracker division. Cina has won three of four feature events and has charged through the field in each outing. Cina has also set fast time every night and has a commanding points lead. Matt Lundberg has won two straight features in the Bargain Hunter Sportsman division, and has climbed to the points lead. There’s plenty of competition at the top in the Sportsman class too, as the top three in points (Lundberg, Daryl Gerke and Brett McCoy) are separated by only four markers.
IT’S ALMOST TIME FOR ‘THE ORIGINAL TRAILER RACE OF DESTRUCTION’
In just two weeks, it’ll be time for that one-of-a-kind motorized extravaganza known as ‘The Original Trailer Race of Destruction!” A long-time staple event at Rockford Speedway, the often imitated, never duplicated Trailer Race is fast approaching, coming up on June 15th. The event, presented once again by Kar Korner, features a rolling demo derby comprised of cars, trucks and vans pulling boats, campers and travel trailers. Destruction is the name of the game and the Trailer Race doesn’t end until ‘the last trailer trails.’ The Original Trailer Race of Destruction is event unlike any other, and one you’ve got to experience first-hand to believe it! Make sure to order your tickets in advance, by calling the Speedway Box Office at 815-633-1500 or by ordering online at www.rockfordspeedway.com. It’s a ‘must-see event,’ and it’s coming your way in just two weeks.
