Rockford Speedway Ties Up 63rd Season in Grand Fashion with January's Champions' Banquet
LOVES PARK, Ill. (November 6th, 2010) It simply wouldnt be a party if Tim Sargent couldnt have his cake and eat it too. And the 2010 Rockford Speedway Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models champion will get the chance to do just that on Saturday, January 22nd at the Forest Hills Lodge adjacent to the race track. Joining Sargent will be Big 8 Series titlist Jeremy Miller, fresh off his record-setting third crown, as well as a host of other track champions from an exciting year of racing action at the legendary quarter-mile oval.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 26, 2010) Tim Sargent capped an emotional season with his first NASCAR championship.
The 36-year-old driver from South Beloit, Ill., became just the fifth different driver in 24 years to win the Stanley Steamer Late Model Division championship at Rockford (Ill.) Speedway, and captured the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Illinois championship. All during a season in which his father, Randy, a former driver himself and Tims car owner, was diagnosed with cancer.
Rockford's Season Wraps Up as Markham Maneuvers Through Massive Field to Claim Goblin 250
By Jordan Kuehne
LOVES PARK, Ill. (Sunday, October 24th, 2010) It was only fitting that the final event of the 2010 season at the Rockford Speedway drew the biggest car count for a single race all year, as 152 cars, minivans, and trucks spilled onto the quarter-mile oval to tackle the 30th annual Goblin 250 enduro. After 150 laps of carnage and traffic jams all over the high banks, Dale Markham steadily worked his way to the front, grabbing the lead on lap 173 after relative TJ Markham fell out of the top spot with a flat tire. Markham never looked back from there, holding off Matt Arvia and surviving the battle of attrition to collect the hardware.
