Race Season Kicks off at Rockingham this Weekend
Rockingham Speedway will be abuzz with activity this weekend as the Legends and Bandoleros hit the Little Rock to kick off the Spring Fling on Sunday and the Chump Car series invade the infield road course for two days on racing on Saturday and Sunday.
“It should be a great weekend of racing at The Rock,” said Rockingham Speedway President Andy Hillenburg. “The guys who come out to race the Chump Cars have such a great time. That is such a fun race to host. To have them here the same weekend that we kick off this year’s Spring Fling for the Legends and Bandoleros is going to give our fans a lot of great, different racing in one place.”
