ROCKINGHAM — Thunder Alley roared back to life this past weekend as Stock Car Classics returned to Rockingham Speedway.

The group, whose motto is “Keeping History on Track,” made exhibition laps around the historic, high-banked oval in a joint event with MB Drift.

The cars (and truck) ranged in age and style, from a Paul Goldsmith 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 to more a more modern Austin Dillon No. 3 Monte Carlo. There was even a tribute to the Intimidator.

(Note: The Goldsmith and Earnhardt cars were no longer making laps by the time the RO arrived at the track.)


SCC founder Brinkley Whiteside, whose mother is from Ellerbe, said that Rockingham Speedway and Darlington Raceway are considered the group’s home tracks.

The group previously made exhibition laps at the Rock’s open house back in March. Click here to read that story and see photos from the event.
