Since 1965, Rockingham Speedway has roused motorsports fans with supersonic races around a one-mile stretch of track. This year, Frank Kimmel Street Stock’s annual Polar Bear 150 features up to 99 drivers vying to unseat Chuck Barnes, whose crafty maneuvers and ability to distract opponents by cooling freshly baked pies on his hood have earned him the title as the race's two-time defending champion. Race attendees can arrive early to watch a one-hour practice at 9 a.m., which is followed by a qualifying round at 11 a.m. Additionally, Rockingham Speedway's website equips visitors with valuable tips for a fully energized experience, including a variety of restaurants and hotels where guests can bribe the front-desk clerk in hopes of getting a room with a racecar bed.
