Macon, IL. (06/19/2021) The Mighty Macon Speedway in Macon, IL. hosted the fourth night of Illinois SPEEDweek and Lucas Oil POWRi’s 41st event at the historic track. Michael “Buddy” Kofoid perfected the tough track and ended his night in victory lane, capturing the win from the eighth starting position. Three other divisions were also in action on Decatur Building Trades Night.
At the drop of the green flag, Kaylee Bryson, Thomas Meseraull, and Cannon McIntosh battled three wide for the lead. All cars fighting for track position on the tricky Macon surface. Daison Pursley caught a rut in 1&2 and got upside down. The field got back under green with Meseraull leading, but about six laps in McIntosh battled Meseraull for the lead and took it over.
McIntosh settled in with the lead while Kofoid was on the prowl. Kofoid made his way up to the second position with only nine laps in the books. After a few late restarts, the battle for the lead intensified, Kofoid and McIntosh traded slide jobs for the lead.
