Taking a trip back to 1952 to the Rockford Speedway with the help of Rockford Rewind.

Rockford Rewind does a fantastic job of bringing us on a trip back to earlier days in Rockford, and this week they found an awesome photo from the Rockford Speedway.

According to the post, the speedway opened in 1947, and this photo is from 5 years later, 1952.

Pretty cool to take a look like this just a week before the Rockford Town Fair! Get your tickets now and get excited for five full days of family fun.
