Top Modified Drivers Heading To Macon Speedway Thursday

95Q Up On The Wheel Modified 100 Joined By 410 Sprints & Pro Lates

(Macon, IL) It may be in the middle of an extremely busy stretch on this year’s Macon Speedway schedule but this Thursday’s event is one that stands out.  It’s the inaugural 95Q Up On The Wheel Modified 100, an event for the Billingsley Elite Wash DIRTcar Modifieds, that will pay $3,000 to win and see some of the best drivers in the Midwest.  The 410 Sprint Cars of MOWA and Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model will join the Modifieds on the Thursday, May 31 program.

The Modifieds are coming off of a Memorial Day Monday event which saw 20 drivers compete in a regular feature event.  Many more are expected to be on track, racing for the top prize on Thursday night, in an event that was added to the schedule for the 2018 season.  Much like the Herald & Review 100 for the Summer National Late Models, this race will be a show featuring the best of the best, only in Modified racing instead of Late Models.

Some of the early entries include NASCAR personalities Kenny Wallace and Ken Schrader, father and son combos, Brian and Austin Lynn, Curt and Zach Rhodes, and Tim Hancock, Jr. and Sr., Allen Weisser, Danny Smith, Ethan Schnapp, Jeremy Nichols, Brian Bielong, Zeb Moake, and many, many more.  The event will start as many as 22 cars, with the top driver taking home a huge trophy and $3,000.

The Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series will also be in action.  The 410 winged sprints put on great shows at Macon Speedway and pace the 1/5-mile track in blistering fast paces, with the track record in the 9 second range.  A strong field is expected to be on hand at not only Macon on Thursday but Lincoln Speedway on Friday night.

Rounding out Thursday night’s schedule will be the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models.  Springfield, IL driver, Guy Taylor, has had a great start to his 2018 season and currently leads the standings, winning two out of the four features.  Carlinville, IL’s Cody Maguire is second in points, while Kyle VanDorn, Donnie Koehler, and Dakota Ewing are top five contenders.

Pit gates open Thursday at 3:00, grandstands at 4:00, hotlaps will start at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $20, while children 11 and under are free.
