LOVES PARK, IL – August 9, 2019 – Rockford Speedway officials just announced the winner of the Saturday, August 17 Hugh Deery Memorial 99 super late model event will also win a guaranteed start in the 2019 NSTC 250. This is huge! If a driver wins the HGD99, is the leader at each segment break and is the first to the checkers in the 250 lap NSTC, he would win $15,000 plus lap leader bonuses! That would make it the biggest payout in the entire region.
“These are two of our biggest events this season and we wanted to find a way to bring them together,” stated Rockford Speedway owner Jody Deery. “We hope the extra incentive will bring more drivers looking for a historic win in the HGD99 and get a guaranteed start in the record payout National Short Track Championship.”
Along with the historic Hugh Deery Memorial 99 for the super late models, the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Models, NASCAR Roadrunners, American Super Cups and Illini Midgets are all in action on the famed high banks. Gates open at 5pm with qualifying at 6pm while the first race flies green at 7:07 PM. Tickets are available on RockfordSpeedway.com. Get yours now, so you can…BE THERE!!!
