Hillenburg Happy with Turnout
With grandstands filled to near-capacity, Rockingham Speedway president Andy Hillenburg took some friendly advice, taking a moment to savor the scene as a fan in the early laps of Sunday's race.
After the track welcomed NASCAR competition back after an eight-year leave, Hillenburg -- who purchased the facility at auction in 2007 -- was beaming after a successful weekend.
"I'm very proud of our effort, the team effort," Hillenburg said. "I feel like we did the best we could do based on the knowledge that we had, but now I also feel confident in saying that if I get a second chance from NASCAR, I can do even better."
