MACON, Ill. – With the summer heating up, it’s time to enjoy the second round of the Bud Light Ladies Night series, presented by Y103, when the gals from Woody’s will race in four-cylinder Hornets at Macon Speedway. All ladies receive half-price admission to a full night of racing, and Macon Speedway has partnered with Skeff Distributing to offer Bud Light beer buckets.
Five ladies from Woody’s, 1190 W. Southside Drive, Decatur, will compete in a five-lap shootout with the top two finishers advancing to the Bud Light Championship race on Sept. 13. The qualifiers will join Jenny Kramer and Dana Damery from Rocco’s in championship rumble later this season. Starship Billiards (July 12) and Pop’s Place (Aug. 9) will race on Bud Light Ladies Night to also send qualifiers to the championship race. The action was furious in the first Bud Light Ladies Night race, as the ladies from Rocco’s shrugged off the checkered flag and kept racing. So be ready for anything goes when the ladies buckle up in four-cylinder stock hornets.
Check out the race buckets. For just $20, you get a souvenir bucket, five cold cans of any Bud Light or Bud plus the ice to keep it all cold during that hot racing on the track. Now, that’s a party to make it great summer night in the Macon Speedway grandstands. With so many ladies in the crowd, it’s a fabulous night for guys to head to the track.
Look for giveaways from Budweiser. There’s some really cool merchandise, from sunglasses to T-shirts, coozies and party beads.
