$1 Dogs & $2 Beers On Tap For Macon Speedway Saturday Night

Several Divisions Plus Spectator Drags On Track

(Macon, IL) After an outstanding season opener which saw nearly 100 racecars put on a highly entertaining show, Macon Speedway will be back at it for the second night of the 2019 season this coming Saturday, April 20.  Seven divisions of action will be highlighted by the Midwest Big Ten Series Street Stocks and the opener for the Sportsman.  Fans will be treated to $1 hot dogs and $2 beers all night long.

Saturday night will mark the first of ten races for the Midwest Big Ten Series Archer’s Alley Street Stocks.  The tour will have four events at Macon, three events at Lincoln Speedway, two events at Jacksonville, and one at the Christian County Fair.  All of the events pay $500 to win and $75 to start, which is a pretty big raise compared to their normal payouts.

Last year, Lovington, IL’s Jeremy Nichols claimed the championship, winning seven out of the ten races.  Terry Reed, Macon’s opening night winner, finished second in points  last year, while Justin Crowell, Darrell Dick, and Shawn Ziemer completed the top five in points.  The series had 59 different drivers take to the track last season.

Saturday will also mark the first race of the year for the Macon Speedway Sportsman class.  Last year’s point battle resulted in a virtual tie at 572 points between Taylorville, IL’s Tim Bedinger and Le Roy, IL’s Scott Williams.  Bedinger won the tie-breaker by having a win.  Following the duo a season ago were Dennis Vandermeersch, Scott Landers, and Ty Nation.  The division will have 12 events at Macon Speedway this year, one at Lincoln, one at the Christian County Fair, and the biggest of all at the Illinois State Fair in August.

The BillingsleyRewards.com DIRTcar Modifieds will be back for their second night of racing, after putting on arguably the best show during the opener.  Veteran Rodney Standerfer and last year’s champion, Tommy Sheppard, Jr., put on a show at the front of the pack, swapping the lead a number of times with slidejobs and crossovers.  Standerfer ended up in victory lane with Sheppard, Rick Conoyer, Guy Taylor, and Tim Hancock completing the top five.  There were 19 Modifieds in the pits on Saturday night and fans are looking forward to seeing a strong field again this weekend.

The Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models had a decent opening night with a new face in victory lane.  Catlin, IL driver, Logan Moody, claimed the victory in his first Macon Speedway start.  He did so by fending off some good Pro Late Model shoes.  Jake Little, of Springfield, IL, took second, while Torin Mettille came home third.  Cody Maguire was fourth and Chris Dick finished fifth.  While the division has a few veterans, it has a lot of young drivers that will be fun to watch this summer.

The Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods had a very familiar face in victory lane as Tim Hancock claimed the win.  It wasn’t easy for Hancock, though, as Decatur, IL’s Nick Justice followed him closely throughout the event.  The class had 15 cars at the opener, with drivers from all over the state of Illinois.

The Micros by Bailey Chassis will be back at it Saturday night, after having 22 in the pits on opening night.  Aaron Andruskevitch, of Riverton, IL, came out of the gates strong, claiming the feature win over the large field.  In exciting news for the Micros, they will be running for track points and will crown a track champion this year.  There are 16 total events for the division this year, four of which will be POWRi National shows.  All 16 will count toward the final track standings.

Rounding out Saturday’s racing classes will be the DIRTcar Hornets.  Brady Reed claimed the opening night win and will be looking to start the season two-for-two.  15 drivers were on track with many more expected to join over the next few weeks as they get their cars ready to go.

At intermission this week, Spectator Drags will be held.  The event is for those who drive their street cars to the track and want to race on Macon Speedway.  The first 8 people that sign up will be entered.  Each race is one-on-one, one lap.  The winner advances, the loser goes back to the parking lot.  It’s a tournament style bracket that ends with the winner receiving a trophy.  There is no cost to enter.  To sign up, call the office at 217-764-3200 or message us on facebook.

Macon Speedway is just a little over a week away from one of the biggest events of the year, the Lucas Oil 100 for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.  The stars of the nationally televised tour will be running 100 laps on April 27, making their sixth visit to the track.  The BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds will run for $1,000 to win and the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods will race for $300 to win.

Macon Speedway’s 74th Opener Shines

By BZ

(Macon, IL) Despite cold temperatures and threatened rain later in the evening, drivers and fans turned out to watch the season opener at the World’s Fastest 1/5th mile dirt track. Macon Speedway hosted six racing classes and nearly 100 total racecars among those classes to put on an exciting show.

Terry Reed was the first feature winner of 2019 in the Archer’s Alley Street Stock division. The former track champion looked dominate in his heat race win and got to the start on the pole. Despite closing the gap, runner up Bobby Beiler gave Reed a tough run.

The closest feature result of the evening came with the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds as Rodney Standerfer was good enough to stop defending champion Tommy Sheppard, Jr. from a late charge. Closing in the final laps, Sheppard attempted a slide job in the fourth turn but could not get it to stick as Standerfer was back on the gas out of the turn and regained the lead. Standerfer, the wily veteran, pulled away in the final lap. Prior to the race’s beginning, Standerfer was slated to start second row inside but the pole sitter Blake Thompson pulled into the infield and was unable to compete.

Logan Moody won for the first time at Macon Speedway in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models. Getting a front row starting spot, Moody did all he could to hold off Jake Little, who won the previous night at Lincoln Speedway, and with the help of some lapped traffic was able to secure the checkered flag at the end of the 20-lapper.

Tim Hancock is back. The former National Champion as well as track champion jumped out early and took advantage of the open track to pull away. The Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods will have their hands full this season if Hancock chooses to run a full slate instead of a partial schedule as he did last season.

Aaron Andruskevitch of Riverton took charge of the Micro Sprint feature on the third lap of the feature and drifted away from Aiden Purdue and the rest of the group as he coasted to a win. The Micro Sprints registered 22 cars for the most among the six divisions of the night.

Brady Reed and Michael McKay were neck and neck for the Hornet feature but Reed had just a little more to take the race and the first Hornets feature of the season.

Macon Speedway wishes to thank all those who braved the cold to join for the 74th consecutive season of racing during the Opening Night. Millikin University and their students were on hand as the sponsor and even had some students from other countries able to join on the judge’s stand and wave flags during the night’s features.

Next week, Macon Speedway hosts spectator drag races as well as dollar dogs & $2 beers at the racetrack.

Macon Speedway’s 74th Season To Begin Saturday Night

Six Divisions Of Racing Plus Autographs & CEFCU Kids Club

(Macon, IL) For the 74th time, Macon Speedway, in Macon, IL will be celebrating the start of a new season, this coming Saturday, April 13.  The fastest 1/5-mile dirt track in the world will have an action packed evening, featuring six different classes of racecars plus a pre-race driver autograph session on the track and CEFCU Kids Club.

Headlining the event will be the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models and BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds.  The two divisions are the fastest classes that compete on a weekly basis and are looked at as the premier divisions at the track.  They feature a good mix of experienced veterans as well as younger drivers trying to steal some limelight.

The Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models will see a new champion this year, as the defending champion, Guy Taylor, is running Modifieds.  In the BillingsleyRewards.com Modified class, Tommy Sheppard is back to defend his championship, but running with a new team.

One of the staple divisions at the track is very much the same but has a new name for 2019.  The division formerly known as the B-Mods is now known as the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods.  The class is a more economical form of the Modifieds.  While they may look similar, the cars utilize a GM crate engine which makes things a little more economical.  Cody Stilwell, of Godfrey, IL, claimed last year’s championship, his first at the track.

The DIRTcar Street Stocks will now be known as the Archer’s Alley Street Stocks at Macon Speedway.  The division has an influx of new cars and drivers for 2019 so it should be a fun season.  Last year, Boody, IL’s Shawn Ziemer claimed the championship.  The division also has a number of specials at the track throughout the year with the Midwest Big Ten Series, the Midwest Stock Car Tour, and the John Osman Memorial.

The DIRTcar Hornets are back for another season of economical racing.  The class, starting as a beginner division in the late 90’s, had a good mix of young and older drivers last year.  56 different Hornet drivers were on track in 2018 with Mike Eskew, of Springfield, IL, winning the championship.  Eskew edged Jeremy Reed by just four points.  Reed and Adam Webb have been frontrunners in the division for several years but are now focusing their efforts on other divisions.  Reed has a Street Stock, while Webb has moved into the Pro Mod class.

Rounding out Saturday night’s program will be the Micros by Bailey Chassis.  The Micros have an increased number of events scheduled for 2019 at the track.  Four events this season will be POWRi sanction national events, while the track will also run twelve unsanctioned events for the class.  A non-wing show for the class is also on schedule.  The Micro class is predominately made up of young kids trying to garner experience, but a number of veterans fill out the field of cars.

Pits open Saturday at 3:00, which is an hour earlier than normal to help allow for opening night paperwork to get filled out.  At 5:00, the grandstand gates will swing open, while hotlaps begin on track at 6:00.  Racing is normally set for green at 7:00 but will be a few minutes later to allow for the on-track autograph session.

It is Millikin University college night at the track.  In honor of this, current college students will be admitted free to the grandstands if they show a valid college ID.  Otherwise, grandstand admission is $12 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.
