Rockford Speedway offering discount to angry Favre fans

Posted: Updated:

LOVES PARK (WREX) - Many Brett Favre fans are upset with his decision to play for the Minnesota Vikings, so the Rockford Speedway is trying to help.

On Saturday, any upset Favre fan who turns in an old Favre Packer item will get $4.00 off their ticket to the races.

"The Packer loyalists are hurting right now, and I am right there with them" stated Speedway General Manager Gregg McKarns. "As a fellow Packer fan, there will be nothing sweeter than burning these items with the Green Mamba Jet Car at our Night of Thrills September 19." The Jets fiasco was forgivable, but the Vikings, not a chance".

Gates open at 5:00 p.m. Saturday with the first race starting just after 7:00 p.m.
