She’s gotten lots of flowers and ate lots of Brunches in her day. This year, give Mom what she really wants…a night of high speed thrills and excitement at Rockford Speedway! It’s Loves Park Motorsports ‘Loves Their Moms’ Night! The on track action includes the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Miller Lite American Short Trackers and Rockstar Energy Drink Roadrunners. Also included on the busy Saturday schedule are the Crap Scrapper Hornets. And Mom is sure to enjoy the Sam’s Drive-In Morning Make-Up Dash and the Winged Women on Wheels, racing on Saturday night for the first time in several years. We also know how much Mom loves a little wine, so she is sure to enjoy the Wine Tasting Booth we’ll have set up, with several selections to choose from. Spectator gates open at 5pm, qualifying at 5:55pm with the first race at 7:07pm. Adult general admission tickets are $12, students ages 12-17 are $8, kids ages 6-11 are $5 with kids 5 and under admitted free.
CAN PAPINI DO IT AGAIN?
For the third time in four outings this season, Alex Papini put his Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Model in victory lane, outrunning three-time champion Jerry Gille for the trophy last Saturday night. Papini has won two of the three Saturday night features (as well as the Big 8 Series Spring Classic on April 14), while Gille was the Saturday night victor two weeks ago. Can the young, confident Papini nab another win? Will the champ Gille strike back? Or will “Driver X” Jon Reynolds Jr, “The Rock” Steve Rubeck, former Rookie of the Year Mitch Garfield or another driver break through this Saturday? The plot thickens…
FOUR CYLINDER EXCITEMENT RETURNS THIS WEEK
A large part of the Saturday night card will feature four cylinder racers. The Miller Lite American Short Trackers, long time Saturday night staples, return after a week off. Nick Cina Jr has started the year strong, and was the big winner the last time the Short Trackers took to the high banks. The Crap Scrapper Hornets will also be in action and so will the Winged Women on Wheels. The ladies will be making their first Saturday night appearance in several years, and look to be boasting a big field!
