Unseasonably cold conditions coupled with approaching rains which are forecast to saturate the area throughout the afternoon and evening have forced officials at Rockford Speedway to cancel tonight’s Mountain Dew 70th Season Opener.
A second attempt to open the regular season takes place next Saturday night May 6 with “Ladies Night,” where all adult ladies received $5 admission and the first 100 ladies through the gate receive a FREE rose. Racing next weekend includes the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Miller Lite American Short Trackers, Kickstart Roadrunners, Bandits and Racer Girl Winged Women on Wheels along with the Roadrunner Challenge ‘Morning Make Up Dash.’ Gates open at 5 PM with the Co-Lin Metals Fast Dashes set to go green next weekend at 7:07 PM.
