As the 2013 season hits the mid-point the X-1R Pro Cup Series is preparing for the final race of the season at Rockingham Speedway. The Pro Cup Series will invade the 1.017 mile track on November 2nd and close out their 14-race schedule with a bang paying $20,000 to the winner and crowning the 2013 series champion.
The first time the series, then known then as the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series, ran at Rockingham Speedway was in 2008. The race was won by none other than current Pro Cup point’s leader, Clay Rogers. Since that inaugural race, the Mooresville, NC native has won three out of the five races at the one-mile track, leading a total of 268 laps in his career. Two of the races Rogers won starting from the pole position.
Though Rogers is the only active Pro Cup driver that has driven to victory lane at this track, he is not the only driver in this series with experience at Rockingham. Tyler Young, with three starts at Rockingham, has one top-five and two top-ten finishes. Two-time Pro Cup victor this season, Caleb Holman, has two top-five and three top-ten finishes in his five starts at this track.
