Hornet Challenge To Be Made Up This Saturday At Macon Speedway

Field Is Nearly Set For $1,000 To Win Event
May 14 Macon Flyer UMP Invite                Hornet drivers from a few different states converged on Central Illinois last weekend at Lincoln and Macon Speedways for the $1,000 to win Hornet challenge races.   Decatur, IL driver Adam Webb bested a field of 20+ competitors on Friday night at Lincoln, while Mother Nature won Saturday’s event with some rainfall right before the green was scheduled to drop.  It has been announced that the race will be run this coming Saturday, May 14.

The rescheduled date this Saturday will see a 25-lap event  run early in the night in addition to regular heats and a feature for the Hornet division that were already scheduled for the night.  While the Hornet Challenge feature field is nearly set, additional starters up to a 22-car field will be allowed.  Right now, 20 drivers are locked in, however, Jay Orr and Zane Miller have already passed along the word that they will not be making the long trip to Central Illinois this weekend.  That takes the field down to 18, leaving at least four spots open at the tail.  Anyone wishing to join the starting field for the Hornet Challenge will have to pay for the entry fee and an additional pit pass at the pill draw window.

This Saturday night’s program features the Hornet Challenge makeup plus Pro Late Models, Billingsley Towing Modifieds, B-Mods, Big Ten Series Street Stocks, and Hornets.  Originally, the Beach PBR-College Kids-Happy Hour 5-14-16House Micros were scheduled for this date, however, the POWRi Micros will be running a race at Southern Illinois Raceway.  Therefore, the Micro event has been postponed to the May 30th, Memorial Day Monday Special.

Pabst Blue Ribbon is the sponsor of this Saturday’s program, which will feature a PBR Happy Hour between 5:00 and 7:00.  During that time, PBR cans will be just $2.00.  In addition, it is college night where students receive free admission by showing proper college ID at the gate.

Pit gates open this Saturday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, pill draw ends at 5:50, hotlaps start at 6:00, Pro Late Model qualifying at 6:45, and racing will take the green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $12 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.
