When the final hit was delivered last Sunday afternoon during the "Reckless in Rockford" Demo Derby, it signified the final event of 2013 at Rockford Speedway and the conclusion of the 66th season of racing and entertainment at the corner for Forest Hills Road and West Lane Road.
With the close of another season, we here at Rockford Speedway look back at what was a busy and memorable 2013. Thirty-eight racing events were held this season at Rockford Speedway, along with a concert, carnival, the 'world's largest big top' circus, car shows and drifting. All of this activity makes Rockford Speedway one of the busiest racing facilities in the Midwest.
"On track", the action was fast, furious and at times unpredictable. No less than five drivers were crowned Rockford Speedway Track Champions for the first time in their careers this summer. Nearly 60 different drivers made trips to victory lane in feature racing events, with winners ranging from 13 years old to 72 years young. Men, boys, women and girls all visited victory lane this season, showing that the field of competitors at Rockford Speedway is both deep and diverse!
The staff of Rockford Speedway would like to thank the hundreds of competitors who came through our gates and put on terrific shows throughout the 2013 season, your support and your hours of hard work behind the scenes do not go unnoticed and it is appreciated. A huge thank you also goes to all of Rockford Speedway's sponsors for their continued support. Without the support of our great sponsors, it would be next to impossible to continue with the one-of-a-kind brand of entertainment provided at Rockford Speedway each and every summer. And of course, many thanks to the great Rockford Speedway race fans! Our show is nothing without the support of our fans...passionate, supportive and loyal fans. Thank you one and all!
With that in mind, plans are already being made for our 67th consecutive year of operations in 2014. We hope you can join us next Spring for another season of fun and excitement!
