Decatur’s Babb gets Checkered Flag

(Macon, IL) Terry Babb has raced plenty of times at Macon Speedway through the years in both stock cars and open wheel cars. Babb took a sweep for the night as he won his heat race and then drew a four on the redraw to determine the first four rows of the 25-lap feature in the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car event. Five laps into the race, Babb was on top and looked to dash away from the field and leave lapped traffic between him and the second place driver. However, restarts would slow the field to a bumper-to-bumper race but Brinton Marvel, Jason Keith and Mike Terry, Jr. tried and failed to steal away the lead from Babb. One of the restarts had Babb slow on the gas and was nearly ran over by second place driver Jason Keith. That would prove costly for Keith as he would end up breaking down entering the first turn and was towed into the infield. MOWA points leader Jacob Patton started 12th place and finished fifth.

Thanks to lapped traffic, Guy Taylor was able to take a victory away from Jake Little. Little closed the gap with the closing laps remaining in an effort to retake the lead but Taylor was too quick and took the win to extend his points lead in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models division. It was announced after the race that Little, an active member in the National Guard, would be gone for the month of August as he takes a tour of duty in Japan. The crowd gave Little a standing ovation.

Wes Odell was the top driver in the Sportsman division as Dennis Vandermeersch looked to challenge for the lead in the caution-plagued feature event. Vandermeersch would be pushed to the pit area and unable to finish the race and allowed Odell to pull away from the rest of the field en route to the victory.

Tim Hancock won in the B-Modified feature event, outlasting his son Tim Hancock, Jr. JR Wiltermood looked to take second place from Hancock, Jr. but did not have the momentum on the bottom of the track to secure the spot.

The Hornets feature last week was washed away by Mother Nature but was made up as part of a double feature night for the 4-cylinder group. Adam Webb claimed victory in the opener and Jeremy Reed took care of business in the second feature. Reed finished second to Webb in the first 15 laps and Webb took second when Reed won the second 15 laps.

Macon Speedway takes a week off to begin August and comes back to racing August 11. It will be a full night of excitement and unusual antics with the Eve of Destruction program. Six racing divisions with the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models, BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds, Street Stocks, B-Modifieds, Hornets and Micro Sprints will be spinning laps. There will be post-race fireworks as well as a rollover contest, a race’em & wreck’em event and a flagpole race.

High Flying MOWA Sprint Cars Heading For Macon Speedway

Kids Power Wheel Demo To Highlight Intermission

(Macon, IL) Macon Speedway, in Macon, IL, is well known for a lot of high speed, wild action.  That will really be at the forefront this coming Saturday, July 28th, as the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Cars head to the mighty 1/5-mile.  The winged 410 sprint cars will be joined by four other divisions as well as the Kids Power Wheels Demo Derby.

For the MOWA Sprint Cars, the Macon Speedway event will be their second at the track this season and 10th event overall in 2018.  The title chase is down to a pair of drivers, Jacob Patton, of Bethalto, IL, and Mike Terry, Jr., from Plainfield, IN. The two drivers are separated by just 29 points.  Justin Peck is third in the standings, while a Central Illinois favorite, Jim Moughan is fourth.  Joe B Miller sits fifth in the standings.

In the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Cars May appearance, Paul Nienhiser was setting a blistering pace before contact with a car he was lapping, eliminated his chances for victory.  Current point leader, Jacob Patton, went on to the victory.  Well over 20 sprint cars were on hand for the first appearance in May and another good field is expected this weekend.

Also on schedule is event #7 on the 2018 Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Model schedule.  Defending series champion, Jake Little, of Springfield, IL, leads the standings by 56 over Kyle McMahon, of Mt. Vernon, IL.  Springfield, IL’s Guy Taylor is lurking close behind, while Cody Maguire and Rudy Zaragoza complete the top five.  Drivers will also be collecting points toward the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model track championship, where Taylor leads over Little, Maguire, Kyle VanDorn, and Donny Koehler.

The DIRTcar B-Mods, Sportsman, and Hornets will also be in action this Saturday night.  The Hornet class also has a make-up feature from last weekend, that will be run during the night.

At intermission, children between the ages of three and ten will have the opportunity to run in the Kids Power Wheel Demo Derby, as long as they bring their Power Wheel to the track.  An info sheet, containing rules and how to sign up, is available at maconracing.com.  All kids who participate will receive an award, while the determined winner will receive a trophy as well.

Pit gates open Saturday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps start at 6:00, and racing will go green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $20, while kids 11 and under are free.

5th Annual Christian County Fair Racing Event Coming Wednesday Night

Larry’s Service Center NAPA Tripleheader Features Three Popular Divisions

The 2018 Christian County Agricultural Fair opens up Tuesday July 24 and runs through July 28, but it’s Wednesday, July 25 that racing fans have marked on their schedules as three divisions of racing return.  The Taylorville, IL fair put racing back on the schedule in 2014, much to the delight of racers and fans in the area.  The event is promoted by Track Enterprises of Macon, IL and presented by Larry’s Service Center and NAPA of Taylorville.

Races at the fair returned in 2014 and were held again the last four years with solid car counts and great racing.   The 2014 event, which was the first in decades, was very successful, boasting a strong turnout in cars and fans.  The inaugural edition of the event saw Kaleb Wood take the win in a field of 20 Street Stocks.  Jeremy Nichols claimed the Sportsman feature, while Jeremy Reed won the Hornet A-Main.

The 2015 NAPA Tripleheader presented by Larry’s Service Center saw Nichols again winning the Sportsman event, while Terry Reed won the Street Stock race, and Jeremy Reed ended the night in Hornet victory lane for a second time in two years.

In 2016, heavy rainfall hit the fairgrounds during the afternoon hours.  Despite the rain and subsequent flooding at the facility, officials worked hard to get back on track.  The event drew 20 Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks with Lovington, IL driver, Jeremy Nichols, claiming the win.  Nichols also bested a field of 13 Sportsman to claim that victory.  In Hornet competition, Decatur, IL driver Jeremy Reed took the win.

Weather was again an issue last year, as the event was barely completed with storms threatening throughout the night.  Despite this, the racing again had solid fields of cars with Timmy Dick besting a 13 car field of Sportsman.  Jeremy Nichols took the top prize in the Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks.  In Hornet competition, Marty Sullivan claimed the victory as rainfall started.

This year’s Larry’s Service Center presented NAPA Triple Header will again feature Sportsman, Street Stocks, and Hornets.  While all races will be UMP sanctioned, the Street Stock event is also part of the Big Ten Series.

Pits open at 4:00 on Wednesday, July 25, grandstands at 5:00, competitor pill draw ends when the drivers meeting begins at 6:00, hotlaps at 6:20, with racing action taking the green at 7:00.

Macon Speedway rules will apply for all classes of racing.  For more information, visit www.trackenterprises.com or www.christiancountyfair.com.  For further details call 217-764-3200.

Schlenk Wins Kerbystrong 100

(Macon, IL) Rusty Schlenk just finished a month long hell tour with the Summer Nationals and he returned to Macon Speedway after competing in the Herald & Review 100. Schlenk stole the lead from Jose Parga within the first ten laps of the 50-lap A-Main feature and held onto the lead as the red flag came out and torrential rains downpoured onto the area and ended the program before the 50 laps were complete. The race is officially complete and Schlenk has been named the 4th Annual KerbyStrong 100 champion.

With no warnings other than gusty winds whipping the American Flags into a frenzy at the center of the track and a few sprinkles, the downpour came from the north and wiped out the remaining parts of the program at 10pm. Luckily, there was only one feature remaining (which will be made up as part of a double feature program for the Hornets) and it will be made up next Saturday.

Tommy Sheppard, Jr. came into the night with the points lead in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds division and thanks to a 25-lap feature win, he will extend that lead. Racing strong with Zach Rhodes early, Sheppard took the lead after a restart 11 laps into the 25-lap race. Sheppard held off Rhodes as well as a charging Tim Hancock to claim the victory.

Dennis Vandermeersch won his second KerbyStrong 100 Sportsman race. He was the inaugural winner in 2015 and thanks to a win in the Aubie’s Custom Contracting Fast Dash, he sat on the pole for the 25-lap feature and rushed out to an early advantage. Wes Odell tried to stay within a car’s length to challenge at the end but it was not meant to be and Vandermeersch took the win. He graciously announced he was giving back $100 of the prize money won to the KerbyStrong Foundation.

Shawn Ziemer raced hard and capitalized on a miscue from leader Jerit Murphy to take the Street Stock feature. Chris Dick was racing strong to get the lead but ran out of laps and Ziemer took his first feature win of the season and extended his points lead in the division.

Tim Hancock proved dominate again in the B-Modifieds, winning for the seventh time in 2018. He ever-so-slightly picked up points on the leader Cody Stillwell, who placed third.

The Hornets were not able to be run due to the rains that washed out the program. They will make up their feature next Saturday night.

Macon Speedway thanks Nikki Damery and the KerbyStrong Foundation Board for their hard work and efforts to bring the 4th Annual KerbyStrong back to the dirt track and provide a terrific night of racing for the great crowd that was in attendance.

Next week, MOWA Sprints make up the full show at Macon Speedway with the Pro Late Models in a Big Ten Series race, Sportsman, B-Modifieds and Hornets. Also, an added attraction will be the Power Wheels Demo Derby with kids aged 3-10 racing their own Power Wheels. There is no cost and all kids will receive a prize for competing.

4th Annual KERBYSTRONG 100 Set For Macon Speedway Saturday

Racing Event To Benefit Local Cancer Patients

(Macon, IL) Inspire, educate, and support are the three words that make up the mission of the KerbyStrong Foundation, in memory of long-time area racer Kerby Damery.  Each racing season, Macon Speedway hosts the “KERBYSTRONG 100” an event that doubles as a fundraiser for the KERBYSTRONG Foundation, for colon cancer awareness.  The 2018 edition is the fourth for the foundation and the racetrack and it’s scheduled for this coming Saturday, July 21 at the 1/5-mile track.

Headlining the event will be the Midwest Big Ten Series Super Late Models, one of the three main classes that Damery competed in during his career.  For the popular division, it’s the fourth and final time this season that they will be in action this year.  The feature race is 50 laps and will be comprised of some of the best drivers in the region competing for the $2,000 top prize.  The previous winner’s list is a good one with Scott Schmitt claiming the 2015 edition, while Jason Feger won in 2016, and Ryan Unzicker took last year’s trophy.

Running a 25-lap event for a little extra prize money will be the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds.  The event will be paying $700 to win and $100 to start.  Among the favorites will be current point leader Tommy Sheppard, Jr. from New Berlin, IL.  Sheppard leads the standings by 112, scoring two wins and seven top fives in a total of ten features.  All the familiar faces including Danny Smith, Curt Rhodes, Zach Rhodes, and Jared Thomas are likely to be contenders as they currently sit top five in points.

The third and final class that is part of the 100 in the KERBYSTRONG 100 is the Sportsman division.  Drivers will be doing their best to outlast Arlington, IL’s Dennis Vander Meersch, who has been dominant this season.  The veteran has won four out of the five features that he’s started, including the topless 40 a couple of weeks ago.  Taylorville, IL driver Tim Bedinger has had a real good season so far, leading the points by eight over Scott Williams.  Both drivers have five top five finishes in six starts.

Rounding out Saturday’s divisions will be the DIRTcar B-Mods, Street Stocks, and Hornets.

Pit gates open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps will go on track at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $15 but fans who show their Billingsley Rewards card (South Shores Location), will receive $3 off.  Kids 11 and under are free.

Fireman’s Ball Washed Away

(Macon, IL) Lightning across the area surrounding Macon Speedway made things bleak that action would be at the race track Saturday night. A morning shower and clear skies in the afternoon allowed race officials to get the track prepared for the night’s five division race event but after Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model and BillingsleyRewards.com Modified qualifiying as well as B-Modified and Street Stock heats, the rains came and washed away the evening and the event. The event will be a complete wash with the exception that drivers will receive 10 points for showing up prior to the rainout. No completed heats will lead to feature lineups.

Fans and drivers are encouraged to hold onto their wristbands for entry for a future full show. If they choose to attend when a more expensive gate will be had, fans or drivers would have to pay the difference.

Macon Speedway thanks Miles Chevrolet, Crown Toyota/Nissan as well as area firefighters for being at the track despite Mother Nature’s lack of cooperation.

A big show awaits Macon Speedway next Saturday with the 4th Annual KERBYSTRONG 100 in which Super Late Models will be on the schedule in a Big Ten Series race and a 50-lap main event. The BillingsleyRewrads.com Modifieds and Sportsman divisions will run 25-lap features to make up the 100 laps for the KERBYSTRONG event.
