After staging the most talked-about event of the 2012 NASCAR season to date, Rockingham Speedway President Andy Hillenburg made it official today; confirming that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to "The Rock" on April 12-14, 2013.
"We got our report card from NASCAR, and it looks like we got an A+," said Hillenburg of NASCAR's April return to Rockingham for the first time since 2004. Sprint Cup Series star Kasey Kahne topped an all-star field of Camping World Truck Series regulars to win the Good Sam Roadside Assistance Carolina 200 presented by Cheerwine, in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd of race fans.
"Fans, drivers, teams; everyone embraced our 2012 event," said Hillenburg. "I'm happy to announce that with their help, we'll do it again in 2013; bigger and better than ever before."
Tickets are already on sale, with adult tickets ranging from $20 to $35 and kids age 12 and under half-price. Reserve your seats now by calling the Rockingham Speedway ticket office at (910) 205-8800, or online at www.rockinghamspeedway.com. Ticket renewals are available through November 20, 2012.
"It's been a long road back since we bought this race track in 2007," said Hillenburg. "There were a few times along the way where I wasn't sure we were going to make it. But when I looked up in the grandstands during driver introductions in April, it made me extremely proud. That was a very important day in the history of Rockingham Speedway, but it was just one step on the road. We're moving forward, and I look forward to packing the grandstands again next April.
"The Rock is back, and we're looking forward to another great race on April 14, 2013."
Before the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to Rockingham, the track rounds out its 2012 season with the Classic 3 Championship on November 2-3, 2012. The event will feature the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, UARA-STARS Late Models and Frank Kimmel Street Stock Nationals.
