(Macon, IL) July is heating up, but Macon Speedway and Miles Chevrolet will be cooling things down on Saturday, July 13 with Christmas in July Night – our annual Christmas for Kids Toy Drive! Anyone who brings a toy to donate to the drive will get $2 off their gate admission price! Prairieland A.B.A.T.E. will be collecting the toys to donate and distribute them to area charities to make a child’s Christmas day special.

We will also have a full schedule of racing with Billingsley Towing UMP Modifieds, UMP Sportsman, UMP Street Stocks, UMP 4-cyl. Outlaw Hornets, Stock Hornets and 600cc Mini Sprints. There will be a double feature for the UMP 4-cyl. Outlaw Hornets. Double the excitement! With the racing season half over, the competition for division champions is heating up!
