In the Bud Light Ladies Night Championship presented by Y103, the winning driver earns a prize package and a trophy goes to the bar she represents. The racers represent four bars:

Rocco — Jenny Cramer and Dana Damery

Starship Billiards – Dawn Reynolds and Holly Vinson

Woody’s – Laurel Phipps and Brianna Livingston

Heinkel’s is a Decatur tradition. The wieners and sausages helped Heinkel’s earn the title of Illinois-Indiana grand champion of meat processors in 2013. The company’s smoked turkey legs are favorites at county fairs, theme parks and NASCAR events, so they were added to the Macon Speedway concessions this season. Two meat variety packs will also be given away. The assortment will include bacon, polish sausage, grand champion wieners, Andouille and fresh rope sausage. One of the variety packs goes to the hot dog eating champion and another one goes to a lucky fan. Be on the lookout for free T-shirts and camo hats, because hunters should also think about Heinkel’s during deer season. Last fall, Heinkel’s introduced the newest product to their Venison line-up, Jalapeno & Cheddar Venison Wieners.
