MACON, Ill. – The race is on to find the fastest women in town. The gals from Starship Billiards will hit the track Saturday during Bud Light Ladies Night, presented by Y103. Stephanie Bender, Holly Vinson, Sunzie Davis, Dawn Reynolds and Sarah Griffith will attempt to finish in the top two spots and qualify for the Bud Light Ladies Night championship race on Sept. 13.
It’s just part of the fun during an action packed program. Miles Chevrolet presents the Fireman’s Ball also featuring the Sportsman Topless 40 and Big Ten Series Street Stocks. Meanwhile, the Bud Light Ladies Night shootout is fast becoming one of the biggest parties in the Decatur area.
The Sportsman Topless 40 is a highlight of the season for drivers in the division. The cars race after driver remove the roof from the cars. The open cockpit feel is great for drivers and fans. Big Ten Street Stocks also battle for $500 to win in the highly competitive division.
The gals from Starship already feel like they own the track. The ladies from Starship, 3015 Grand Prix Drive in Decatur, will compete in a five-lap shootout in Stock Hornets. The championship qualifiers will join Jenny Kramer and Dana Damery from Rocco’s later this season. Woody’s (Aug. 9) and Pop’s Place (Aug. 30) will race on Bud Light Ladies Night to also send qualifiers to the championship race. The action was furious in the first Bud Light Ladies Night race, as the femmes from Rocco’s shrugged off the checkered flag and kept racing. So be ready for anything goes when the ladies buckle up in four-cylinder stock hornets.
