Kids of all ages enjoy the Tractor Town's tractor rides prior to the start of the racing program.

Racing side by side saw past Rockford Speedway Champions of # 02 - 7 time track champion Ricky Bilderback, # 99 - 3 time track champion Jerry Gille and last season champion # 39 Alex Papini racing hard out of turn four.

Driving off into the sunset the field of late models on their pace lap prior to the start.

A crazy and wacky field of RoadRunners race in the Sam's Drive-In Double Spin to Win RoadRunner Challenge as they are spinning into the infield to complete their first spin.

Art Higbee, Rockford, IL  # 47  with the help of a fellow competitor spins in front of the field to bring out a caution flag during their feature race.

Veteran driver # 5 George Sparkman, Loves Park, IL raced to the front to win the Miller Lite American Short Tracker 25- lap feature.

Making it two win in a row is Alex Papini # 39 Machesney Park, IL as he chased down the field to win the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Model 30-lap feature.
Dennis Smith # 62 South Beloit, IL drove from deep into the field to win the KickStart RoadRunner 20-lap feature.
