LOVES PARK, Ill. (Wednesday, July 6th, 2011) -- After getting a few days to breathe following an action-packed stretch of three consecutive holiday specials, fans wont be disappointed when they return to the legendary Rockford Speedway this Saturday night. In addition to the always exciting full slate of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing on Bobcat of Rockford Night, spectators will be gifted with a special treat: the return of Doug Rose and the Green Mamba Jet Car.
In his 49th year behind the cockpit of the behemoth, Rose will put on a pleasing display of power courtesy of his J46 jet engine pieced together from a Navy F7U Cutlass Fighter Plane. Burning over 37 gallons of jet fuel per minute, the jet car boasts a stunning top speed that exceeds 300 miles per hour.
