ONLY TWO WEEKS AWAY FROM THE ‘BEATIN ‘N’ BANGIN’ BOAT RACE!
An event that is quickly becoming a fan favorite at Rockford Speedway is just two weeks away. For the third time in history, ‘Nick’s Beatin N Bangin Boat Race’ returns to the track! The ‘Boat Race’ consists of cars, trucks, vans and SUVs tugging boats around the track. What’s the big deal you ask? The boats are being towed by the vehicles WITHOUT TRAILERS! Not only that, but with thousands of gallons of water being added to the track, the Rockford Speedway transforms into a massive lake! Add all these factors together and the stage is set for one of the most unique rolling demo derbies you’ll ever see! And the winner isn’t determined until ‘the last boat sails!’ Tickets are available in advance by calling 815-633-1500 or by visiting www.rockfordspeedway.com. Reserved adult seating is just $15, with reserved children’s seating just $5. Come sail away with us on Saturday night August 24th, for Nick’s Beatin N Bangin Boat Race presented by Windsor Auto Sales!
