Doug Hornickel PhotoDoug Hornickel PhotoLOVES PARK, Ill. (September 29, 2013) – James Swan picked up his second National Short Track Championships 75-lap Mid-American Stock Car Series feature win Sunday afternoon at Rockford Speedway. Swan also inscribed his name on the Vercauteren Memorial Trophy for the second time since 2006.

The Five-time MASCS Champion swiped the lead from Jeremy Spoonmore on lap six, and pulled away from last year’s titlist on several restarts over the remainder of the feature event. Swan was glad to return to his roots after racing exclusively in Super Late Models this season.

“These cars are a lot of fun to drive,” Swan said. “I love racing them, I love racing with these guys and I miss these guys.”

Sept 29, 2013 - Sunday's NSTC schedule at Rockford Speedway has been adjusted to absorb much of the Saturday program. Persitant light rain provided enough breaks to tease racers and fans until 9:40 pm when officials gave the night over to the weather. Sunday will see the pit gates open about 7:00 or an hour early and fan gates for the 'Saturday' race at 9:00. Also, at 9:00 the Mid-American Stock Cars will have the first of two short practices. The second and final practice will be about 9:50 followed immediately with the Mandatory driver meeting in the "South Tower" above the pit concessions.

Sept 27, 2013 - Sunday, September 29th, the Mid American Stock Car Series returns to Rockford Speedway’s National Short Track Championships for the 21st straight year.

Mid-American’s best will compete for the brass ring for 75 laps. Among those mounting the challenge are three champions and two rookies and the veteran without a title leading the way.
Rockford’s 48th annual NSTC will also be host to the passing of the traveling Vercauteren Memorial Trophy. The Trophy will pass from last year’s race winner, Kenny Joosten, to this Sunday’s victor. The Vercauteren Trophy was born 24 years ago to honor a family that has dedicated their lives to the betterment of Stock car racing in the upper mid-west. Gary Vercauteren founded the Mid-American Stock Car Series and ran it until an untimely death on his way to Oktoberfest in 2005.
