Dragway opens Feb. 14 with Test-and-Tune

Open to all vehicles

ROCKINGHAM — For those engaged in an ongoing love affair with the American hot rod, what better place to celebrate Valentine’s Day than Rockingham Dragway, which opens its gates for the first time in the new year on Feb. 14 to host the initial event in the 2015 Rock Solid Test-and-Tune Series.

“I know it’s not where you might usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, but why not?,” asked track owner Steve Earwood.  “Most racers love their wives, their girlfriends, their kids and their cars and where else can you get them all together?”

Gates open at 10 a.m. with unlimited timed runs until 6 p.m.  Admission is $10, $25 for car and driver for unlimited time runs.

The Rock Solid Test-and-Tune Series, open to all vehicles, is one of the staples of the Rockingham program along with the track’s NHRA Summit Racing Bracket Series and the Phantasm Motorsports Street Wars Series.

The track won’t “officially” open for two more weeks (Feb. 22) when it will host  the first “True Outlaw Street Drags” program, open to street driven vehicles only, followed the following weekend (Feb. 28-March 1) when it stages its annual Free Entry Racers Appreciation Shootout.  That event will feature free entry for all racers with $2,000-to-win purses in Top ET, $1,000 in Footbrake and $150 in Jr. Dragster.
