“This track used to be the crown jewel for the community and for the last 20 years it has basically been all but abandoned,” said Daniel Lovenheim, owner of Rockingham Speedway.
It’s been nearly two decades since a Cup Series race ran at Rockingham Speedway.
Lovenheim bought the track five years ago and has been working to lure NASCAR back to “The Rock.”
In 2021, Rockingham speedway received $10 million in COVID recovery grants from the state.
Add another $10 million in upgrades out of his own pocket and Lovenheim says, “this will be race ready by 2024.”
