Rockingham Speedway loses NASCAR race; failed to meet 'obligations'

   NASCAR statement:

   DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 9, 2013) – NASCAR announced today the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event scheduled for Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway on Saturday, Nov. 2 has been cancelled.

   The race at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Ga., on Friday, Oct. 18 now will be the season ending points race. The event is part of the 16th annual Petite Le Mans weekend for American LeMans Series.

   It is unfortunate any time a race must be cancelled,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president, regional and touring. “However, the race track failed to meet its obligations and we were forced to terminate the sanction agreement. We look forward to a great race weekend at Road Atlanta to culminate the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season and crown the 2013 champion.”


  1. racing seems to be taking a different "turn." Rockingham used to be

  2. I'd be really interested to know more of what those "obligations" were. Rockingham not coughing up enough money for NASCAR's profit margin or something?
