It’s another Kid’s Night this Saturday night at Rockford Speedway! Kid’s 11 and under are always admitted FREE on Kid’s Night and there’s always a little extra fun on Kid’s Night too. This week is no exception, with the return of the Splashtastic Swimming Pool Jump! You’ll see a full sized motorhome try and clear a swimming pool full of water! Last year, “Big Ben” Beckham nearly cleared the pool in a limousine while sending water over 40 feet into the air. The limo and Big Ben would emerge unharmed. Big Ben plans on returning Saturday night, so bring your friends to see if he can make an RV fly. Aside from the madness of the Swimming Pool Jump, the action on track will include the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Rockstar Energy Drink Roadrunners, Crap Scrapper Hornets and the Allison Legacy Series. This week’s Sam’s Drive-In Roadrunner Challenge race is the fan favorite ‘Hare & the Hound Race.’ It’s going to be a great night and Spectator gates open at 5pm, with qualifying at 5:55pm and the first race at 7:07pm. Adult general admission tickets are $12, students ages 12-17 are $8 and kids 11 and under are free!
WILD WEDNESDAYS RETURN JUNE 12th!
The time has come once again for everyone’s favorite midweek treat, ‘Wild Wednesdays’! This June 12th marks the first of seven Wednesday night racing programs this summer. The opening Wednesday night includes ‘Summer’s Finally Here FREE Student Night’, where all students will be admitted FREE with a Student ID. On track, the lineup features the Roadrunner Super Summer Series, Bandits, Misfits and Winged Women on Wheels. Also, new to the Wednesday lineup this season are the Super Cup cars.
