A Busy Night Set For Saturday Night At Macon Speedway

Ed Cain Trucking Hornet Challenge To Pay $1,000 To Win

(Macon, IL) This coming Saturday, June 8, Macon Speedway fans will be treated to a number of different facets of an entertaining night of action.  Caterpillar and Decatur Memorial Hospital will be presenting the evening which includes the Ed Cain Trucking Hornet Challenge, a Diesel Truck Show, Little League night, and six divisions of racing action.

The top story of the night will come from the DIRTcar Hornet class, which will be running in the 4th Annual Ed Cain Trucking Hornet Challenge.  The front wheel drives will be running for $1,000 to win, a 6 foot trophy, additional money throughout the field, in addition to bonuses for winning the dash, and highest out of state finisher.  The Hornets will be on the second night of the back-to-back event, which also pays $1,000 to win at Lincoln on Friday night.

Leading Macon’s weekly classes into Saturday will be the Neal Tire & Auto DIRTcar Pro Mods, which also have a special event on Friday night at Lincoln.  Bonus money is on the line for the top three drivers who accumulate the most points between the two nights.  Tim Hancock, Sr., of Mount Olive, IL, leads the points at Macon, winning four out of the first six features.  Decatur, IL driver, Nick Justice, is second in the standings, just four points back.  Rob Timmons, Billy Nail, and Tim Riech complete the top five.

Dakota Ewing, of Warrensburg, IL, is off to a hot start in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model division.  Ewing has a very solid 42 point lead, claiming three feature wins already this season.  Donny Koehler, from Macon, IL, is second in points, while Jake Little, Blake Damery, and Cody Maguire complete the top five.

2018 BillingsleyRewards.com Modified champion, Tommy Sheppard, Jr., from New Berlin, IL, has continued his success into this year, winning three features already and has now built a 64 point lead over Alan Crowder, who is second.  Jared Thomas, Tim Hancock, Sr., and Guy Taylor are in the top five.

It’s a brother battle at the top of the Archer’s Alley Street Stock points this season.  Gene Reed, of Hammond, IL, is currently up 20 on his brother, Terry Reed.  Gene has won one feature, while Terry has claimed two.  Larry Russell, Jr. is third in points, while Darrell Dick is fourth and Jonathon Hall is fifth.  Due to solid car counts and good racing in the class, additional money has been added to the weekly Street Stock payout, based on 16 cars or more.

Rounding out Saturday’s divisions will be the Micros presented by Bailey Chassis.  The class will get a chance for a final tuneup before the POWRi Speedweek comes to town next weekend.  Tyler Day and Molly Day, from Atwood, IL, are atop the standings after three nights of racing for the division.  Aaron Andruskevitch won the first two feature but was missing in action at the third event.  Jacob Tipton is third in points, while Andruskevitch and Aiden Purdue complete the top five.

Also on the card will be the diesel truck show.  Upon arrival, diesel truck drivers will park near the front gate and get a couple of free tickets to enjoy the races.  At intermission, the trucks take a few laps around the track and then will be judged on best appearing.

It is also Little League night, with little leaguers invited to wear their uniforms to the races.

Pit gates will open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps will start at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00 on Saturday night.  Grandstand admission will be $12 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.
