New ownership has taken over the Rocket Raceway Park. The Petty, Texas, dirt oval formerly known as 82 Speedway will see new branding and an exciting mix of events for the 2022 season.

The management team of Kevin Sustaire and Kevin Rogers will take the reins at the Rocket Raceway Park. After spending the last three seasons at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, the duo intends to capitalize on their prior experiences.

“We are excited about the opportunity to continue promoting weekly racing in Texas,” Sustaire said. “We feel like we have gained a lot of experience over the past few years and are excited for the new venture.”

“The opportunity to challenge ourselves and provide quality weekly racing events was another enticing characteristic of the Rocket Raceway Park,” Rogers added. “I am excited to get to work.”

For the 2022 season, the Rocket Raceway Park will see four Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series divisions including USRA Modifieds, Medieval USRA Stock Cars, USRA Limited Mods and Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks, with Eco-Mods and Trooper Cruisers also on the Saturday night card.

The USRA Modified division will join the card on a bi-weekly basis. They will compete for the Rocket Challenge in 2022 and alternate weekends with the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas.

The Meieval USRA Stock Cars are a new division and the first time the class will be sanctioned at a racetrack in the Lone Star State.

“The USRA Stock Car division is one of the most competitive divisions in all of motorsports, Sustaire said. “We are excited to bring them in for the 2022 season.”

In addition to the changes to the Rocket Raceway Park, the KR Cup will once again join the Kevin and Kevin Show at the Petty, Texas, speedplant.

“I am excited to bring the KR Cup to Lamar County. Weekly racing will be contested for the opportunity to win the KR Cup Championship,” Rogers noted.

RaceOnTexas.com will be joining the track’s network as well.

“The entire crew over at RaceOnTexas is top notch. They have been with us since 2015 and we are excited to continue our relationship with them.”

In 2022, the Rocket Raceway Park will play host to several special events too. The USRA American Racer Modified Series will join the card on Saturday, Sept. 3, and return for the ARMS Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3-5.

“It is going to be a challenging and exciting season for us, the drivers, crews, partners and fans for the Rocket Raceway Park,” Rogers revealed. “Sustaire and I have been burning the candle at both ends this short offseason finalizing the details and are ready to get started.”

A new website is being finalized at RocketRacewayPark.com and should be available soon. Also, make sure to follow the Rocket Raceway Park on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updated information.
