GET READY TO ‘BASH’ AND ‘FOO FOO’ THIS WEEKEND!
The ‘last blast’ of the 2015 racing season returns this weekend to Rockford Speedway, with the 24th running of the Bahama Bracket Nationals! The Bahama Brackets are popular with racers and race fans alike and not only offer more racing than any event in the Midwest, but also offer the most diverse group of racing vehicles at any racing event. What makes the Bahama Bracket Bracket Nationals different than any other short track racing event is…not only are there Late Models and Sportsman and Modifieds and Short Trackers and Roadrunners and Hornets…they all could end up racing each other at some point during the weekend! Nearly 200 race cars enter the pit area, everyone qualifies and then the field is split into brackets…making this a truly unique and exciting event. If you love short track racing…you’ll love the 24th Annual Bahama Bracket Nationals this Saturday and Sunday October 17 and 18 at Rockford Speedway!

The Goblin 250 is pure motorized madness on the quarter mile, with as many as 150 four-cylinder cars battling each other and whatever is thrown at them throughout the 250 laps. Drivers race the first 125 laps on the oval, with the final 125 laps contested on the tricky ‘Monza’ course. Several of the four-cylinder cars also take part in the ‘Big Swarm’ Demo Derby that ends the day and the 2015 season. There’s also plenty for the kids on ‘Goblin Sunday,’ with a Costume Contest held on the track at 12:40 PM and a Kids Candy Scramble being held on-track during the halfway break of the 250 lap race. Gates open at 11 AM next Sunday October 25, Adult admission is $12, Children age 6-11 are admitted for $5, while Kids 5 and under are FREE!
