Feature Laps And Prize Money Added
Due to solid support and some positive feedback, Macon Speedway will be having a special event for the Hornet division, this coming Saturday, June 20. This week’s program will feature a 20-lap special event and thanks to a good sponsor, an additional $200 will be spread throughout the field and the winner will take home some a large trophy. There will also be a hard charger award.
Last week, the rules were adjusted so that an invert between 2-12 is possible for the feature event, thus creating a little better racing and more parity. In addition, the previous week’s winner will start no better than tenth the following week. The addition of more laps, this week, will give ample time for competitors starting back in the field to race to the front.
The Saturday, June 20 program will feature racing in the Big Ten Street Stocks, Pro Late Models, Billingsley Towing Modifieds, Hornets, and Beach House Micros. In honor of Three Dog Night, the concession stand will be selling $1 hotdogs and University Dogs will present a hotdog eating contest at intermission.
Pit gates will open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps begin at 6:00 when the pill draw ends, and racing will begin at 7:00. Admission prices are $12 for adults but ladies will get in for $6 in honor of Bud Light Ladies night. Children 11 and under are free.
