Champion Driver Andy Hillenburg brings
racing back to The Rock,
and it’s better than ever!
When Andy Hillenburg purchased the racetrack formerly known as the North Carolina Speedway in October 2007, he promised to return racing to the one-mile facility within a year.
Hillenburg, whose racing resume includes Sprint car, stock car and Indy Car experience, as well as the 1995 ARCA Bondo Mar-Hyde Series Championship, exceeded the expectations of that promise when the green flag fell on the ARCA RE/MAX Series Carolina 500 on May 4, 2008. Racing had returned to "The Rock" after a four-year hiatus with a commitment from Hillenburg to provide race fans with an exciting motorsports experience in a top-notch, family-friendly facility.
Since that first race, Hillenburg and the staff at the Rockingham Speedway have built on the esteemed track's racing resume, not only carving out a niche in the ARCA schedule as that series championship crowning event, but also hosting racing action for the Frank Kimmel Street Stock Series, the ASA Late Model Series and the USARacing Series.
If you are veteran race fan or someone looking to take their first motorsports adventure, the Rockingham Speedway has something for you.
We look forward to seeing you at "The Rock" in 2010.
