‘STAN BURDICK NIGHT’ IS NEXT SATURDAY NIGHT!
Next Saturday night June 29th is going to be a very special night at Rockford Speedway, as we honor one of the most familiar faces in the history of the track. Next Saturday night will be Stan Burdick Night, honoring a man who has been a part of racing at our facility since day one in 1948! A reception is planned next Saturday afternoon, starting at 3 pm under the Party Pavilion. The public is invited to attend and many familiar faces are planning on returning for this special event. The party will then move to the track as Round II of the Gilley’s Cool 5 takes center stage. The main event of the night will be the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Model ‘Star Spangled 76.’ The Bargain Hunter Sportsman, Miller Lite American Short Trackers and Rockstar Energy Drink Roadrunners will also be on hand, making Stan Burdick Night a ‘Saturday Night Supershow!’ Please join us as we salute a great personality and an original, next Saturday June 29th!
