Loves Park, IL- When the first green flag of the 2012 season waves at Rockford Speedway on April 7, two additional sections of the speedway’s grandstand will be non-smoking. In addition to the Pizza Ranch Family Section which does not permit the use of alcohol or tobacco products, Section H and Section J, which are located toward turn 1 of the 65 year old facility will now be non-smoking starting this season.
“Over the past seasons we have had more and more requests for a larger non-smoking area, our fans spoke and we listened.” Commented Rockford Speedway Director of Operations David Deery. “Essentially from the start/finish line to turn 4 will be our smoking area and towards the turn 1 playground will be non-smoking.”
