While members of the area Public Safety Community have been extremely busy in recent weeks, the Speedway wishes to thank those who keep our neighborhoods safe. “The men and women that protect our families deserve our support and we felt this was a great way of showing our gratitude for the countless hours they spend on the job.” Commented Rockford Speedway General Manager Gregg McKarns. “With a title sponsor like Whelen that supplies sirens and safety lights to many area departments, this is a perfect night to pull this all together.”
Season Championships will be decided in all four NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions.
