Daum, Clauson nab victories in POWRi midget features at Macon Speedway Saturday night

Daum2

Zach Daum won the first POWRi midget feature Saturday night at Macon Speedway.

MACON – POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series points leader Zach Daum stormed to the victory in the first feature race at Macon Speedway Saturday night in front of a loaded field. Daum, of Pocahontas, Ill., started from the front row and held off Bryan Clauson of Noblesville, Ind., for the victory.

Clauson, the reigning Chili Bowl champion, came back to win the second feature before a packed house at the legendary fifth-mile high banked dirt oval as the POWRi series completed its only races of the season here after rainouts kept them from running or finishing in five previous dates.

The open wheel weekend continues with the Tony Bettenhausen 100 for USAC Silver Crown cars at the Illinois State Fairgounds Sunday. Grandstands open at 9 a.m. with practice at 10, qualifying at 11:15 and the race at 1:30 p.m.

The racing was already thrilling at Macon Speedway. The track was fast, and the POWRi drivers had plenty of room to maneuver. The cushion was pushed toward the wall, and there were three lanes of racing for the final POWRi midget feature.

Clauson pulled away from Darren Hagen and Justin Grant for the victory in the second feature. Clauson is also a 2012 Indianapolis 500 qualifier.

Devin Feger and Nathan Benson scored the victories in the POWRi Outlaw Micro  features. Meanwhile, Bobby Beiler grabbed the win in the Street Stocks, and Collin Alexander took the checkered flag in the Billingsley Towing Modifieds.

John Bright Jr. won the Outlaw Hornets, and Garth Luka captured the trophy in Stock Hornets.

Macon Speedway ready for racing Saturday night highlighted by POWRI double features

Zach Daum

POWRi defending champion Zach Daum leads the points standings again.

 

 

MACON, Ill. – Get ready for POWRi double features at Macon Speedway Saturday night. After some wet weather rolled through the area Friday night, the Macon Speedway track crew is already getting the legendary fifth-mile high banked dirt oval ready for the POWRi double features. Fans have been talking for months about the double feature night, and this is it. We are racing Saturday night.

The POWRi stars love coming to Macon Speedway, a track built specifically for midgets in 1946. The size of the straights and the roomy banking combine for some great passing, and there will be plenty of slide jobs. With the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets and Speedway Motors Outlaw Micros both running double features, it’s one of the best racing programs of the season. We’ve waited all year for this, and fans are planning to get here early to drop a blanket to save their favorite seat.

Zach Daum, of Pocahontas, Ill., leads the POWRI midget standings as he attempts to win back-to-back titles. The lineup of drivers who will likely run both the POWRi program and the USAC Tony Bettenhausen 100 Sunday at the Illinois State Fairgrounds includes Bryan Clauson, the reigning Chili Bowl champion who also qualified for the Indy 500 in 2012.

Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7. Adults pay only $15 for general admission with children 11 and under free when accompanied by a parent. Parking is free, and there’s plenty of room for camping. Beach House Mini-Sprints will compete against the POWRi Outlaw Micros, making for a great battle between the touring stars and the local favorites. Billingsley Towing Modifieds, Street Stocks, Outlaw Hornets and Stock Hornets will also race.

Tickets for Sunday’s Tony Bettenhausen 100 for USAC Silver Crown cars are just $15 when purchased at Macon Speedway Saturday night. The Bettenhausen 100 takes the green flag at 1:30 p.m. on the Springfield Mile.

Open wheel weekend highlighted by POWRi double features, doubleheader with USAC

POWRi0906

MACON, Ill. – It’s an open wheel weekend for dirt track racing fans with some of the nation’s best dirt trackers heading to Central Illinois for major events in POWRi midgets and USAC Silver Crown cars. POWRi fans are already buzzing about the program at legendary Macon Speedway Saturday, Sept. 6, when the series holds double features in both Lucas Oil National Midgets and Speedway Motors Outlaw Micros. But that’s just the start. On Sunday, Sept. 7, the USAC Silver Crown cars roar onto the famed Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds for the rescheduled Tony Bettenhausen 100 following the incredible race at the DuQuoin Mile the previous weekend.

TonyB0907

That’s racing on one of the best midget tracks in the country – Macon Speedway was designed as a midget track when built in 1946 — before enjoying the historic Bettenhausen 100 on mile track, the superspeedway for dirt cars. The weekend even includes a special ticket offer.
POWRi is one of the fastest growing dirt-track series in the country, and you just might find The Next Big Thing. Kyle Larson won a POWRi feature last season, and he’s now contending for NASCAR Rookie of the Year in Sprint Cup. Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Ill., leads the standings. Bryan Clauson, an Indy 500 qualifier in 2012, is also likely to compete. Justin Peck and Chris Bell sit on the front row of the feature lineup set during the April 26 program. POWRi will also run a complete program. Grandstands open at 5 with racing at 7 p.m. Tickets are only $15 for adults. Children 11 and under are free with parent.
On Sunday, A.J. Fike of Galesburg, Ill., shoots for only the second three-peat in the 80-year history of the Tony Bettenhausen 100. Named after an Indy 500 star from suburban Chicago, the Tony Bettenhausen 100 didn’t have an Illinois driver win it in 29 years before Fike took the checkered flag in 2012. When he won it again last season, Fike could become only the second three-peat winner, joining Chuck Gurney (1989-91). Last weekend, Shane Cockrum of Benton became the first driver from Southern Illinois to win the DuQuoin Mile. Practice is set for 10 a.m. with qualifying before the race at 1:30 p.m. Grandstands open at 9 a.m.
Fans attending the POWRi show at Macon Speedway may purchase Tony Bettenhausen 100 tickets for $15. Otherwise, call 217-764-3200 for regularly priced tickets at $30.

Fike attempts to defend home turf again in Bettenhausen 100 at Springfield Sunday

TonyB0907

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – A.J. Fike of Galesburg, Ill., goes for a rare three-peat when the USAC Tony Bettenhausen 100 for Silver Crown cars roars into action on Sunday, Sept. 7, in a complete show on the Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. The Bettenhausen 100 will include practice, time trials and the 100-lap race after being rescheduled from two weeks ago. Tickets from the original date will be honored on Sept. 7. Combined with a POWRi midget program at Macon Speedway on Sept. 6 with double features in the midget and outlaw micro divisions, it’s an open wheel weekend.

The Tony Bettenhausen 100 is an 80-year-old national championship race filled with tradition, excitement, thrills and color on the Springfield Mile, billed as the world’s fastest mile dirt track. Named after an Indy 500 star from suburban Chicago, the Tony Bettenhausen 100 didn’t have an Illinois driver win it in 29 years before Fike of Galesburg took the checkered flag in 2012. When he won it again last season, Fike could become only the second three-peat winner, joining Chuck Gurney (1989-91). Fike took the lead on lap 92 last season for the third Silver Crown win of his career. It’s hard not to get nostalgic. Before Fike, the last Illinois driver to win the Bettenhausen 100 was the namesake’s son, Gary, who won it in 1978 and 1983. Gary Bettenhausen passed away earlier this year.

Practice is set for 10 a.m. with qualifying before the race at 1:30 p.m. Grandstands open at 9 a.m. For tickets, call 217-764-3200.

“The Silver Crown series is going in a positive direction,’’ said USAC series director Andy Hillenburg. “With race organizer Bob Sargent’s support, we are delighted to be able to retain this marquee event for our fans and participants as we continue to strive for the prominence this series deserves.’’

Fans who attend the Dana Godfrey Memorial for POWRi Lucas Oil Midgets Saturday, Sept. 6 at Macon Speedway may purchase tickets for the Bettenhausen 100 for half price – just $15. Tickets will be available at the Macon Speedway box office. POWRi has scheduled double features in both midgets and outlaw micros. Justin Peck is the polesitter with Christopher Bell also in the front row, followed by Zach Daum and Rico Abreu in the second row in a feature lineup set during the April 26 racing program. Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7.
