Due to the recent COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, affecting entire nations across the globe, Rockford Speedway along with Big 8 Series officials have been forced to postpone the 43rd Annual Spring Classic set for Saturday, April 18, 2020. The 43rd Spring Classic was slated to begin the Rockford Speedway, Big 8 Late Model Series, and Mid-American Stock Car Series schedules.
"We were put into a situation where we were unable to host the 43rd running of the Spring Classic as scheduled. This is always a highly anticipated event for us, and we look forward to it every year. Unfortunately, this year presents a unique situation that is out of our control," Stated Rockford Speedway GM, David Deery. "We understand that the health and well-being of our fans, drivers, and staff is of the highest concern and we see this decision as being in the best interest of all parties involved,” Concluded Deery.
