POWRi Midgets Heading Toward Central Illinois

Belleville, IL. (08/04/2020) New dates for the POWRi Lucas Oil National and the POWRi Engler Machine & Took Micro Leagues SPEED WEEKEND have been established. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday August 21-23 will now host the SPEED WEEKEND. What was originally scheduled to be July 31 – August 2 was washed out by the rain. POWRi Officials have worked hard with all three tracks to reschedule this spectacular event for the drivers and race fans.

It all begins on Friday, August 21 when the SPEED WEEKEND fires off at Lincoln Speedway. The tight ¼ mile semi banked dirt oval has established many winners. The most recent winner being Tyler Courtney, on August 16, 2019. The last time the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micros visited the historic Lincoln, IL speedway was in 2017. Both races in 2018 and 2019 resulted in a rain out. The driver that topped the charts in 2017 was Nick Howard. Pro Late Models, Modifieds, and Nutech Seed DII Midgets will also be in action.
On Saturday, August 22, both POWRi series visit the “Mighty Macon” Speedway. Which is stated to be the “World’s fastest 1/5-mile dirt track.” The last time POWRi Midgets attended the unique grounds on September 14, 2019 Logan Seavey came out on top. The 2019 event also marked Chad Elliot as a winner for the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro Sprint League. BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds, Archers Alley Street Stocks, and Hornets will also race.
The final night on Sunday, August 23 at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, IL is when the SPEED WEEKEND will conclude. The ¼ mile dirt track is located on the Morgan County Fairgrounds in Jacksonville, IL. This will be the first time that any POWRi series has visited the historic ¼ mile track in the 2020 race season.
