One of the most unique and exciting events of the racing season is just one week away! The 22nd Annual Bahama Bracket Nationals are coming next Saturday and Sunday October 12 and 13 to Rockford Speedway! The Bahama Bracket Nationals features cars and drivers from all across the Midwest, racing against the clock and each other. Late Models, Modifieds, Sportsman, Hornets, Trucks, and more from both asphalt and dirt speedways will clock in, then are separated into as many as six brackets to race against each other. Sunday’s Main Events are 50 laps each, with each winner having the choice of prize money or a trip for two to the Bahamas! Gates open Saturday at 5:15 pm, with racing slated for 6 pm. Heats and Qualifiers for all cars will be contested Saturday night. Adult admission is $12, with students (12-17) $8, children (6-11) $5 and kids 5 & under free. Following the races Saturday night, it’s the ‘Last Blast Race Party’ featuring the return of ‘Sing for Your Start’, where drivers have a chance to sing their way into a 50 lap feature on Sunday. The green flag flies at Noon on Sunday, with Last Chance Racing, the 50 lap features and the Fabulous ‘Foo Foo Races’ for fun and prizes! Admission prices Sunday are $15 for adults, $10 for Students (12-17), and $5 for children (6-11) with kids 5 and under free! We hope to see you next weekend in ‘the Bahamas!’

GOBLIN 250 JUST TWO WEEKS AWAY!
The final event of the 2013 racing season is just two weeks away! The 33rd Annual Goblin 250 enduro for four cylinder vehicles is coming Sunday October 20 at 1 pm. The race features over 100 four cylinder cars, trucks, vans and station wagons in a 250 lap slugfest. The first 125 laps will be run on the oval, with the final 125 laps run on the tricky ‘Monza’ course. There’s still time for you to build your enduro car! Rules and Entry Forms can be found at: http://rockfordspeedway.com/pdfs/goblin.pdf. Following the Enduro, we’ll close the season with Demolition Derbies! Damaged Goods presents the “Wreckless in Rockford” Demo Derbies, along with the ‘Big Swarm’ Demo for four cylinder cars that raced in the Goblin 250. You’ll want to bring the whole family to ‘the Goblin’ because there’s a Kid’s Costume Contest before the race begins at 12:40 pm along with a Kid’s Candy Scramble during the halfway break of ‘the Goblin.’ Gates open at 11 am Sunday October 20, with the Goblin 250 taking the green at 1 pm. Adult admission is $12, Students ages 12-17 are $8, children 6-11 are $5, while kids 5 and under are free! It’s a fun way to close the curtain on the 2013 racing season, so make it a point to bring the whole family to the Goblin 250 at Rockford Speedway Sunday October 20!
