MACON, Ill. –Macon Speedway teamed up with Casey’s General Store for reduced mission to the legendary fifth-mile high banked oval, and there’s also a drawing at each participating Decatur area Casey’s General Stores for two free tickets to Casey’s General Stores/Armed Forces Night on May 31.
At participating stores, vouchers for $2 off general admission are available at the front counter, and each store is holding a drawing for the two free tickets. The fun already began, so check out how they decorated the entry box at your favorite Decatur area Casey’s.
