Peterson Family Promotions takes charge at Bullring at Rock Island County Fairgrounds

EAST MOLINE, Ill. – A family that’s cheered, raced and worked at the Bullring at Rock Island County Fairgrounds will promote the quarter-mile clay speedplant beginning this season.  Korey Peterson, along with uncles Jeff and Todd, take charge at the East Moline track. Sunday shows under the Peterson Family Promotions banner will feature IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Late Models, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and, for the first time, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks. “We love this track. My grandfather flagged here in the 1960s so we’ve had close ties to it for a long time and we want to see it up to the best of its capabilities,” said Peterson, who raced cruisers and street stocks before ending his racing career in an IMCA Late Model. “We like a lot of things about IMCA, especially the uniform rules,” he continued. “Sanctioning allows our drivers to be part of a bigger organization, and earn national, regional and state points.” Opening night is April 26 with the IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season continuing through Aug. 30.
