Rockingham Speedway to Host a Press Conference Wednesday; Is This the Return of NASCAR?

Rockingham Motor Speedway will hold a press conference at the track on Wednesday, September 7th with track management and North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue. The details of the press conference are not known at this time; however there is rampant speculation that the track will announce the return of a NASCAR national touring race to the historic speedway, which hosted NASCAR for the better part of four decades until 2004. The last hurdle for the speedway to overcome was the lack of SAFER barriers, but track owner Andy Hillenburg announced that the safer walls would be installed beginning this month and ready for 2012 competition.
