OVIEDO, Fla. — The Super Cup Stock Car Series will not race at Rockingham Speedway this fall after being unable to solidify a date for the event with the new track owners.

The recent change in ownership negated an agreement with previous track management. The new ownership group and Super Cup Stock Car series officials agreed that the ability to properly organize as well as promote an event in such a short term would not reflect the professionalism of either the series or the speedway.

“The change in ownership and management of the historic facility has proven to be a major task,” said Super Cup Stock Car Series Director Joe Schmaling. “We thank the people of Rockingham Speedway for their efforts and extend to them the best wishes in reopening the track in 2017 as well as welcome the possibility to explore hosting a SCSCS event in the future.”

The Super Cup Stock Car Series will conclude it’s season this weekend at Jennerstown (Pa.) Speedway with twin 50-lap events.
