During a NASCAR race broadcast this weekend, they did a featured about Rockford Speedway.

I think sometimes people in the state line area take Rockford Speedway for granted. It's been here for so long. They forget the important role the local track has played in racing history.

This week NASCAR was at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. During the TV coverage, they did a story about the legendary track in Rockford.

Here's the video, if you missed it from the NASCAR on NBC Facebook page.

It's great to see Rockford get recognized on a national level.

If you haven't been to the speedway in a while, make plans to check it out this summer.
