On Sunday, Rockford Speedway concluded its 2014 season with the running of the Goblin 250 Enduro. The entire day consisted of a children's Halloween costume contest, followed by the Women's Championship race sponsored by Racer Girl. This was a 30 lap feature won by Cassy Frisch. Cassy battled for the lead all day in an exciting race. This was Cassy's 9th feature win of the season.
The Goblin 250 Enduro had 107 4-cylinder cars start the race. The first half of the race was run on the oval. At the halfway break, the track is re-configured to include a kink and is called the Monza course. While this is being done, all the kids gather on the frontstretch for the Candy Scramble.
At the start of the second half, Jim Kingel charged to the lead and for the better part of the race held the lead, followed by Eddie Brown and Dale Markham.
At the conclusion of the Enduro, the track was reconfigured and the "Big Swarm" Demo Derby started. There was plenty of action and crashing with cars getting on top of each amongst some of the more spectacular crashes. It came down to two cars maneuvering around with Jorge Renteria winning the battle.

This was my last car racing event of the year and what a great year it was. Now its time to get gear cleaned, repaired and get ready for Snocross racing starting in December. What's good is that in addition to GLX Snocross, ISOC Snocross is coming to Route 66 in February. This should be a great event at a great facility.
