Watch for fireworks during, after 95Q Firecracker 40′s Saturday at Macon Speedway

 

 95Q

MACON, Ill. – The fireworks will snap, crackle and pop on the race track and through the skies at legendary Macon Speedway Saturday, when the 95Q Firecracker 40’s serve as one of the top racing nights of the season with a pair of 40-lap features. Coupled with a huge fireworks display at the conclusion of racing, it’s summer time family fun that can’t be missed.

The 800-horsepower late models return to the fifth-mile high banked layout for a 40-lapper that pays $1,500 to win. UMP late models have long been a fan favorite of Macon Speedway fans, and there will be plenty of door-to-door, dirt-slinging action when the monsters take to the track. Late model pilots enjoy competing at Macon Speedway because of the fast, smooth track, and they always put on a great show while going for the big money. Billingsley Towing Modifieds are ready for a 40-lapper that pays $700 to win, and the division’s action-packed race in mid-June still has fans talking, pointing fingers and ready for the next installment of the hard-nosed racing that made Macon Speedway famous.

Street Stocks, Sportsman, Outlaw Hornets and Stock Hornets will also race. Then Macon Speedway gets a jump on the Fourth of July celebration with a fireworks extravaganza to light up the sky. The spectacular display is another reason Macon Speedway is a destination this weekend for families, race fans and folks who just like to have fun.

Neuhoff Media and 95Q, Decatur’s country home, is a Decatur classic, just like Macon Speedway. The station features two of the most popular DJ’s in Central Illinois. Join Trish from 5 a.m. to 9 each morning for the latest country news, weather, contests and all your requests. From 2 p.m. to 7, Toby takes you on the afternoon drive for the ride home. Head to 95Q.com for concert info, events and fun every day.

As part of a month-long promotion, IHOP will distribute coupons for redemption at 1280 E. Pershing Road in Decatur during each night of racing at Macon Speedway in June. With the purchase of one entrée and two drinks, the second entrée is free. When visiting the IHOP on East Pershing Road, ask your server for a $2 off coupon to Macon Speedway. It’s good for general admission during June.

With all of this hot racing, fans don’t miss your chance to get a souvenir race bucket. For just $20, you may purchase a souvenir bucket filled with five beers and the ice to keep it cold. Refills with five beers and more ice to chill the portable party pack are just $15.

Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7.

The cars and stars of the UMP Summer Nationals arrive for the much anticipated Herald-Review 100 on July 10, when the winner grabs a $5,000 pay check. New Berlin’s Brandon Sheppard is the defending champion of The Hell Tour. Local legend Shannon Babb, known as the Moweaqua Missile, is contending for another title. Billy Moyer, Bobby Pierce Jr., and Brian Shirley are also considered contenders. The Herald-Review 100 is one day after the tour hits the Terre Haute (Ind.)

Camaro to pace ARCA SuperChevyStores.com 100, USAC Silver Crown at Illinois State Fairgrounds

Car1

            MACON, Ill. – Take a look at the 2014 Illinois State Fair pace car. It’s easier to do on the Internet, because this hot Camaro is a silver streak on the road. Courtesy of Woodrum Motors in Macomb, this Chevy Camaro is a star attraction, and Track Enterprises, Inc., will show it off the rest of the summer, including race dates at Macon (Ill.) Speedway, the Illinois State Fair and the DuQuoin State Fair.

The Chevy Camaro will pace the field at the Illinois State Fairgrounds mile dirt track on Aug. 16 for the Tony Bettenhausen Memorial for USAC Silver Crown cars before leading the pack to the green flag on Aug. 17 for the SuperChevyStores.com 100 in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Don’t be surprised to see the Camaro pace car at a Super Chevy Store near you. The Central Illinois Chevy Stores form a consortium of 12 locations stretching across the region.

            The SuperChevyStores.com 100 is one of two races on dirt in the 20-race ARCA Racing Series season. The unique events bring together dirt track racers from all backgrounds. The Illinois State Fair has a long tradition of stock car racing, and ARCA began sanctioning the event in 1983.

            This is the 52nd time the famed Springfield Mile hosts stock car racing. ARCA takes center stage on the world’s fastest mile dirt track on the final day of the 162nd annual Illinois State Fair. The ARCA Racing series presented by Menards is in its 62nd season.

Last summer, Brennan Poole raced to the thrilling ARCA win in Springfield after locals Kelly Kovski, driving for Allgaier Motorsports, and A.J. Fike were black flagged for jumping a late restart before a large crowd and an NBC Sports Network television audience. Kovski wanted to become the second Springfield native to ever win a championship race at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in more than 70 years of sanctioned championship auto racing. Fike, of Galesburg, attempted to complete the weekend sweep after winning the previous day on the Springfield Mile in a Silver Crown open-wheel race.

            Other stock car winners on the Springfield Mile include Frank Kimmel, Parker Kligerman, Justin Allgaier, Ken Schrader, AJ Foyt, Al Unser, Ramo Stott, Don White, Roger McCluskey, Bob Keselowski, Jack Bowsher, Bobby Isaac, Bob Keselowski, Tim Steele and Dean Roper.
