September 29, 2013
Sept 29, 2013 - Sunday's NSTC schedule at Rockford Speedway has been adjusted to absorb much of the Saturday program. Persitant light rain provided enough breaks to tease racers and fans until 9:40 pm when officials gave the night over to the weather. Sunday will see the pit gates open about 7:00 or an hour early and fan gates for the 'Saturday' race at 9:00. Also, at 9:00 the Mid-American Stock Cars will have the first of two short practices. The second and final practice will be about 9:50 followed immediately with the Mandatory driver meeting in the "South Tower" above the pit concessions.
At 10:00 the first green flag of the day will fly for the Big 8 Even Dash followed by thier Last Chance. The Saturday portion of the program will continue with Feature races lead by the GNSS Sportsman then the Illini Midgets, the Big 8, Illinois Vintage and Hobby Stocks.
Immediatly following the completion of the Saturday night feature events, approximately 1:00, the grandstands will be cleared and front gates will re-open for the scheduled 'Sunday' portion of the program. Mid-American will kick off the show with qualifying. This will allow fans to find thier favorite seats before the Opening Ceremonies.
Mid-American will use the 75 lap feature to pass the traveling Vercauteren Memorial Trophy to the feature winner. The Trophy will be relinquished by last year’s race winner, Kenny Joosten. The Vercauteren Trophy was born 24 years ago to honor a family that has dedicated their lives to the betterment of Stock car racing in the upper mid-west. Gary Vercauteren founded the Mid-American Stock Car Series and ran it until an untimely death on his way to Oktoberfest in 2005.
