The final event of the 2013 racing season takes place this Sunday afternoon at Rockford Speedway, with the 33rd running of the Goblin 250 enduro! Over 100 vehicles are expected to compete is this wild event, which features four cylinder cars, trucks, vans and station wagons in a 250 lap slug-fest that takes place rain or shine! The first 125 laps of ‘the Goblin’ will be run on the traditional oval course, with the final 125 laps run on the tricky ‘Monza’ course! After the enduro, the season will end in ‘destructive’ fashion as the smashing and crashing action of demolition derby takes center stage! Damaged Goods presents the “Reckless in Rockford” Demo Derby, with three classes of Demo Derby carnage! Also entering the ring will be the ‘Big Swarm’ Demo Derby featuring several four cylinder cars that earlier participated in the Goblin 250. The green flag flies on all the action at 1 PM!
KIDS COSTUME CONTEST & CANDY SCRAMBLE
There will be activities for the kids this Sunday afternoon at Rockford Speedway, so make sure to bring the whole family! Prior to the start of the Goblin 250, a Kid’s Costume Contest will be held on track at 12:40 PM. Kids are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween Costumes and will be invited to step onto the track to taking part in the contest and show their costumes off to all of those in attendance. Then, when the Goblin 250 hits halfway at lap 125, the cars will head to the pit area for the ‘Halfway Break.’ When the cars clear the track, kids 11 and under will be invited onto the front stretch for a Kids Candy Scramble!
Gates will open Sunday morning at 11 AM and tickets will be available for purchase at that time. Adult admission is $12, Students ages 12-17 are $8, children 6-11 are $5, while kids 5 and under will be admitted free!
