Rockingham To Host 2012 KNPSE, WSMT Finales

The hits just keep on coming for Rockingham Speedway. Just weeks after confirming that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will compete at the historic North Carolina oval in April of next year, Sirius XM NASCAR Radio’s Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody has learned that the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will close its 2012 championship season there in early November of 2012.

Track President Andy Hillenburg will announce a tripleheader weekend of racing at the Richmond County (NC) oval on November 3, 2012, featuring season finales for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour and UARA Late Model Series.

While the complete 2012 season schedules have not yet been released, the K&N Pro Series has historically closed it season at Dover International Speedway in late September. Darrell Wallace, Jr., capped the 2011 K&N East chase with a win on "The Monster Mile" September 30. George Brunnhoelzl III won the 2011 Whelen Southern Modified Tour finale at Caraway Speedway on October 22 and the UARA Late Models completed their 2011 schedule at Rockingham two weeks ago, with third-generation driver Corey LaJoie in Victory Lane.

    If they replaced UARA with ARCA it would be one kicking weekend at the Rock. (And that is not saying UARA shouldn't be there, just ACRA would be a better fit.)
