Become a Part of Our Racing History:

Rockford Speedway is located on the north side of Rockford, IL. The speedway celebrated its 72nd year of operation in 2019, making it Northern Illinois’ oldest professional and continuous sports venue.

Since the inaugural season in 1948, the high-banked quarter-mile oval has been tabbed “Mid-America’s Finest Racetrack.” Rich in racing tradition, this reputation has been well-earned through hosting major events like the granddaddy of all short track post-season events, the National Short Track Championships.

This prestigious event has helped launch the careers of NASCAR stars, including Mark Martin, Dick Trickle, Alan Kulwicki, Ted Musgrave, Rusty Wallace, Rich Bickle, Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth, Travis Kvapil, Jamie McMurray, Todd Kluever, Erik Darnell, and Scott Wimmer, Erik Jones, Derek Kraus and Ty Majeski.
