MACON, Ill. – Get your game face on. MOWA sprint cars make their only appearance of the season at Macon Speedway Saturday night during DynaGraphics/ILMO Night. It’s the final stop of MOWA Sprint Week, and after a rainout Friday, the drivers and fans are anxious to get back to the track.
Big names such as Christopher Bell and Brady Bacon are expected to battle with MOWA stars Jerrod Hull, Chris Urish, Joey Moughan, A.J. Bruns, Jeremy Standridge and Korey Weyant as the winged sprints fly around the fifth-mile high banked dirt oval. The power, speed and agility of these cars are breathtaking. The skilled, brave sprint car drivers really enjoy powering through Macon Speedway’s smooth corners.
Racing isn’t the only excitement at Macon Speedway Saturday, because our generous sponsors will make it a night to remember. DynaGraphics is holding a contest with a $500 gift certificate going to the lucky winner. It’s good toward any product in the DynaGraphics lineup, including a vehicle wrap. It’s free to enter. When purchasing their tickets, fans will receive a gift certificate from ILMO good for a free pair of OSHA approved sunglasses. They can be picked up at any ILMO store, including Decatur, Springfield and Jacksonville.
Besides the MOWA sprint cars, Billingsley Towing Modifieds, Street Stocks, Outlaw Hornets, Stock Hornets and the Illinois Lightning Sprint Series will also race. Pits open at 4 p.m. while grandstands open at 5 with racing at 7.
