Big Ten Super Late Models Set For Macon Speedway Saturday

Kid’s Castle Night Also Features Fun Activities For Kids

The Midwest Big Ten Super Late Models are set for their final appearance of the season at Macon Speedway, this coming Saturday, August 27.  The division, a fan favorite at the track, will be joined by six other divisions plus fun activities for kids, making it an action packed night.

Coming into the race, Brian Diveley is the current point leader in the Midwest Big Ten Series Super Late Model standings.  Diveley, last year’s champion, has yet to win a race on the tour but has had 8-27-16 Kid's Castle Scout Nightconsistent finishes which gives him a 38 point lead over Greg Kimmons.  Chuck Mitchell, McKay Wenger, and Bo Brockway complete the top five in series points.  Seven events have been run so far this season.  Saturday’s race will pay $1,500 to win and $150 to start.  A $100 bonus to the top Pro Late Model finisher will also be on the line and the Pros have had some pretty good runs against the Supers at Macon this year.

When it comes to open wheel cars, Taylorville, IL driver Curt Rhodes leads the Billingsley Towing Modified division by a healthy margin over Rodney Standerfer, who was last year’s champion.  Jeff Graham, Zach Rhodes, and Alan Crowder complete the top five in points.  In B-Mod action, Mt. Olive, IL driver Tim Hancock will be on hand looking to keep his unbeaten streak alive.  Meanwhile, the bounty is still alive and now at $200 for the driver who can get the win, with Hancock still on track.  Champaign, IL driver Patrick Bruns sits atop the POWRi/Illini Lucas Oil D-II Midget standings, as they’ll be making another Macon appearance, in addition to the only visit of the year from the KidModz.

When it comes to the other stock car divisions, Decatur, IL driver Nick Justice has had a banner season and leads the Street Stock points by 80 over Kyle Waters.  Brian Dasenbrock, Luke Force, and Terry Reed complete the top five.  Rounding out Saturday’s classes is the front wheel drive Hornets.  Tony Reed sits first but by only 32 over Jerad Matherly.  The two Macon County drivers are followed by Cook Crawford, Ryan Cantrell, and Torry Lyons.

Saturday night will feature CEFCU Kid’s Club which will have fun activities for kids located near the pavilion.  It is also Scout night at the track, where all scouts and parents will be admitted free in uniform and a pinewood derby will be held in the pavilion at 4:00, with trophies going to the top four.

Pit gates will open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, drivers meeting at 5:45, competitor pill draw ends at 5:50, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $15 for adults and free for kids 11 & under.

Macon Speedway Battles Rain For Rich Camfield Memorial

Thorson Puts On Driving Display To Claim Win

Despite a moderate rainfall that hit right before the scheduled practice time of 6:00, officials and teams worked diligently to dry the track for the 1st annual Rich Camfield Memorial.  Five divisions of action were on hand, with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets headlining the event brought to the fans in part by the Chevrolet Hall Of Fame Museum.

In the UMP Midwest Big Ten Street Stock feature, Jeremy Nichols overcame a first lap crash to win yet another feature.  Nichols, while maneuvering turn three on the first lap, spun sideways, collecting a number of drivers.  While the damage looked to be pretty severe, Nichols was able to continue and hold off the strong Terry Reed.  The Lovington, IL driver was followed by Reed, Nick Justice, Ruzy Zaragoza, and Shawn Ziemer in the top five.

In the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget A-Main, 22-drivers lined up for the Rich Camfield Memorial feature event.  Justin Peck, in the white and black #5x, jumped out into the lead with Spencer Bayston and Jake Neuman in tow.  The first nine laps of the race went caution free before a turn four melee brought out flagman Joey Webb’s yellow.  Back to green, Tanner Thorson, took over the second spot and just a few laps later set his sights on Peck.  Coming from a sixth place starting spot, Thorson took the lead on lap 15, just in time to collect the Phil Sargent ½ way bonus.  Over the last half of the race, Thorson put on a clinic, dicing through lap traffic high and low while building a huge lead.  When the checkered fell, Thorson claimed the victory by over five seconds.  Following the Minden, NV driver was Bayston, Zach Daum, Carson Macedo, and Justin Peck.

23 Speedway Motors Micros took the green in their 20-lap feature event.  Slater Helt raced into the lead at the green with Tony Clifton falling in line behind him.  On lap 14, Helt’s lead came to a halt as Andy Bishop had run him down and cruised by to the inside.  Micro point leader, Nathan Benson was close behind, though, following Helt into second.  With four laps to go, Benson got his chance as a caution waved and lined the field nose-to-tail.  With the green back out after a few failed restarts and pileups, Benson snuck under Bishop to claim the win.  Following the Concordia, MO driver, was Bishop, Helt, Jeremy Camp, and Garrett Duff.

Next on track was the 20-lap UMP Pro Late Model feature.  After the redraw, Nick Bauman and Matt Taylor had front row starting spots.  At the drop of the green, it was Springfield’s Taylor taking the lead.  Bauman, who had some sort of mechanical issue, pulled off the track in the early going.  At that point, Jose Parga and Guy Taylor started a spirited battle for the second spot.  As Taylor closed the door coming off of four, Parga made contact with the rear end of the 4T machine in a battle for real estate.  After some more trading paint, Parga’s right front suspension broke, causing him to slow on the frontstretch, collecting the #32 of Cody Maguire.  As the race wound down, no one had anything for the #24 of Matt Taylor, collecting yet another feature win.

The last event of the night was the UMP Hornet feature event.  Tony Reed started in the second spot and shot into the early lead as polesitter Ryan Cantrell had mechanical issues and blocked vision from his hood flying up.  Jeremy Reed, seventh place starter, wasted no time in getting to the front to battle for the win.  Lap-after-lap, the two battled neck and neck looking for the Mighty Macon trophy.  At the checkered, Jeremy Reed was able to garner the victory, while Tony Reed, Adam Webb, Jacob Wilkinson, and Torry Lyons completed the top five.

Next up for the Track Enterprises crew, will be the Sunday, August 21 SuperChevyStores.com 100 presented by Jive for the ARCA Racing Series at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.  The ARCA practice will begin at 9:00 AM with Sportsman on track at 10:00 AM for group practice and qualifying, ARCA qualifying is at 11:15 AM, the Sportsman National feature is at 12:00, and the SuperChevyStores.com 100 will take the green at 1:35 PM.  For more info, visit www.trackenterprises.com.

Later in the week, the crew heads to Lincoln Speedway for the $5,000 to win Summer Nationals makeup for the Super Late Models.  The event will be this coming Thursday, August 25 with Modifieds and B-Mods also in action.  More info at www.lincolnspeedwayil.com.

For Macon Speedway, the next event is next Saturday, August 27, as the Big Ten Super Late Models make a scheduled visit.  Full info at www.maconracing.com.

POWRi Flying In To Lincoln Speedway And Macon Speedway This Weekend

National Midgets To Be Joined By National Micros

The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets are set for the traditional doubleheader of racing, this coming Friday and Saturday, August 19/20.  Fans will be flocking to Lincoln Speedway on Friday night and Macon Speedway on Saturday night, many of which will make it a full weekend of racing by also attending the Illinois State Fair events in Springfield on Saturday and Sunday.

Craziness will begin on Friday night at the friendly confines of Lincoln IL Speedway at the Logan County Fairgrounds.  There, the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets, POWRi Speedway Motors Micros, UMP Pro Late Models, and UMP Modifieds will be pacing the 1/4-mile semi banked dirt oval.

The “Night Before The Illinois State Fair” midget race will see Zach Daum coming to town with a 490 point lead over Tanner Thorson in Midget competition.  Spencer Bayston is currently third with his two victories, just 60 points behind Thorson.  Justin Peck is fourth with Jake Neuman in fifth.  Thorson will be looking for the sweep of Lincoln events this year, claiming the Midget week event in June after pitting to change a flat tire.

In POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Micro competition, Nathan Benson will lead the field of competitors into town by 560 points.  In second is Shelby Bosie with Jeremy Camp in third, Joe B. Miller fourth, and Alec Long fifth.  At the June event, Blue Mound, IL driver, Jeremy Camp was victorious and will again be one of the favorites.

At Macon Speedway Saturday night, the POWRi Lucas Oil Midgets will be running in the “Rich Camfield Memorial”.  Camfield, of nearby Decatur, was an ardent supporter of midget racing not only throughout the Midwest, but nationwide.  Driving the #87 midget, Camfield was the 2001 Midwest Auto Racing Association (MARA) Champion and a frequent participant of the annual Chili Bowl Nationals.  A stone’s throw away from Rich’s hometown, it was only fitting for Macon Speedway to be the track for the Annual Rich Camfield Memorial.

When it comes to Macon, there have been three different winners in the three national midget events this season.  On April 23, Carl Juncton, MO driver, Andrew Felker, took the win followed by Tucker Klaasmeyer and Austin Brown.  On May 21, it was Spencer Bayston in victory lane with Justin Peck and Colten Cottle taking podium spots.  The most recent POWRi event at the Central Illinois facility was during SPEEDWEEK on June 11.  On that night, Leemoore, CA driver Carson Macedo tasted victory, while Thorson and defending point champion, Darren Hagen scored second and third.  Mother Nature claimed the July 2 event that was scheduled at the 1/5-mile.

In POWRi Speedway Motors Micro events at Macon this season, Frank Galusha of Lincoln, Nebraska took the checkered flag on April 23 with Matthew Howard and Nick Howard in tow.  On May 21, the local, Jeremy Camp took the trophy back to Blue Mound, IL, while Benson and Levi Curry finished with podium spots.  The most recent race was during SPEEDWEEK on June 11 where Nick Howard finished in victory lane with Camp and Evan Weyant second and third.  Much like the national midgets, the micros also have not had a repeat winner.

Both tracks will feature a dabble of local flavor with the stock car classes as well.  At Lincoln Speedway on Friday night, the very strong field of UMP Pro Late Models will be on hand racing for the top prize and important UMP points.  Jake Little, of Springfield, is currently the top point collector at the track, despite not winning a feature.  Roben Huffman, Brandon Eskew, Nick Bauman, and Matt Taylor complete the top five.  Springfield’s Guy Taylor may be the one to watch, though, claiming the last couple checkered flags at the track.

The Pro Late Models will also run at Macon Speedway on Saturday night, in fact, it has been announced that some bonus money is on the line.  The top three combined point collectors this Friday and Saturday night will receive bonuses of $300-$200-$100.  It has also been announced that start money for the class has been raised to $100 to start this Friday and Saturday.  At Macon Speedway, Matt Taylor has won four features and leads the standings by 42 over Roben Huffman.  Jake Little, Guy Taylor, and Cody Maguire complete the top five.

Other divisions running this weekend are the UMP Modifieds at Lincoln Speedway and the Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks and UMP Hornets at Macon Speedway.  Both nights will be action packed and a great sideshow for the big Illinois State Fair races that are on tap for the USAC Silver Crown Series, the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, and the UMP Sportsman.  And many fans are excited for the UMP/MARS Super Late Model $5,000 to win race that will occur the following Thursday, August 25 at Lincoln Speedway.  It is a makeup for the rainout in July.

Friday and Saturday details at Lincoln and Macon have pits opening at 3:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing action at 7:00.  Each night will see the price of a grandstand ticket at just $15.

Good Racing, Fireworks, & Carnage Story Of Macon IL Speedway’s Eve Of Destruction

(Macon, IL) History Channel’s program American Daredevils was on hand Saturday night with the crazy Mr. Dizzy and Scarecrow. He wowed a packed house with his activities, mayhem, destruction and stunts. There was also some destruction involving stock cars, too. Many were mangled and beat up by the night’s end but with those scars were memories of great racing action.

Nick Justice was on the gas pedal for the win in the Street Stock division as he faced his toughest challenge in weeks with Terry Reed. Reed, a former champion, stuck to the bottom with Justice but was not enough for the winner as Justice had a little more under the hood on the straightaways.

Matt Taylor won the Pro Late Models 20-lap feature attraction as his brother Guy Taylor inched closer to him during the closing laps but just couldn’t get enough on the top of the track to come up with the lead.

Tim Hancock has been amazing in the 2016 season as he took the checkered flag for the 11th straight time in the B-Modified class. He has been untouchable in this class and continued his win streak. Not only did he win in the B-Modified class, he entered in the Billingsley Towing A-Modified class as well and took second place. It was the second time this season Hancock has entered both classes and ended with a top five finish in each race.

In the Billingsley Towing Modified class, besting Tim Hancock was Cory Daugherty. He was so pleased with the feature win and the top prize. “This makes up for me buying golf clubs yesterday,” said Daugherty in victory lane.

Garrett Duff made short work of the Beach House Micro Sprint feature, leading wire-to-wire in a cautionless race.

The final race of the night was the most unpredictable as Jerad Matherly, who did not start in his heat race with a broken car, started at the tail, worked his way forward and ended up holding the checkered flag at the end of the night. Steven Stine had a strong hold on the lead but Matherly’s car was just took quick on the bottom and took away Stine’s win.

Next week, Macon Speedway features POWRi for the final time on the schedule as the midgets and micro sprints return to Macon. Also on the docket are the Street Stocks and the Pro Late Models.
