This Saturday night features an event that is quickly becoming a fan favorite at Rockford Speedway, ‘Nick’s Beatin N Bangin Boat Race’ presented by Windsor Auto Sales! The ‘Boat Race’ consists of cars, trucks, vans and SUVs tugging boats around the track…WITHOUT TRAILERS! Not only that, but with thousands of gallons of water being added to the racing surface, the Rockford Speedway transforms into a massive lake! Add all these factors together and the stage is set for the most unique rolling demo derby you’ll ever see! And the winner isn’t determined til ‘the last boat sails!’ Along with the Boat Race, the evening includes Round IV of the Gilley’s Cool 5 with Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models, Bargain Hunter Sportsman, Miller Lite American Short Trackers and Rockstar Energy Drink Roadrunners. Tickets are available in advance by calling 815-633-1500 or by visiting www.rockfordspeedway.com. Premium adult seating is just $15, with Premium children’s seating just $5. General admission prices are $12 for Adults, $8 for Students 12-17, $5 for children 6-11 while kids 5 and under are free! Gates open Saturday night at 5 pm, with racing at 7:07 pm.
