TBJ Promotions Kicks off 2013 with Famed Eagle Motorsports Rock 'N Roll 50



WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. – As soon as he zipped beneath the checkered flag, Seth Bergman could breathe a sigh of relief.

Finally, the goal was accomplished. 

After several years of trying and numerous close calls, he won a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event. And to cap it off, Bergman claimed one of the most prestigious races – the TBJ Promotions Rock ‘N Roll 50 at Riverside International Speedway.

“It was gratifying,” Bergman said of last year’s triumph. “I had been working the last few years on the tour trying to get that win. A lot of hard work and time and energy by a lot of people finally paid off. It was just perfect for us to get our first win there. I don’t know if I’d take any other situation to get my first Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour win.”

Bergman and a host of others will return to Riverside International Speedway for the 5th annual Eagle Motorsports Rock ‘N Roll 50 on Saturday, April 27 – the first of five TBJ Promotions events this season.

It is one of the most prominent events with arguably the best trophy – a customized Gibson trophy to the winner.

“To be able to win a guitar and have it all in the same night just made it that much sweeter,” Bergman said.

Only two other drivers have claimed the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour race. Tim Crawley swept the two-day event in 2009 before winning the finale in 2010. TBJ Promotions Founder Tony Bruce Jr. earned a preliminary night win in 2010 and rain washed out the event in 2011.

“We have big things planned with TBJ Promotions and I'm excited to open the 2013 schedule with the Eagle Motorsports Rock 'N Roll 50,” Bruce Jr. said. “It's a marquee event that always puts on a great show.”

In addition to the Eagle Motorsports Rock 'N Roll 50, the other TBJ Promotions events include: the 2nd annual US 36 Nationals Presented by RacinBoys at US 36 Raceway in Cameron, Mo. (May 17); the 5th annual Steve King Memorial at Jetmore Motorplex in Jetmore, Kan. (May 25); the Hinchman Racewear Eagle Nationals at Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb.
