MIDGETS AND MICROS SET FOR MACON SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

(Macon, IL) – The 2019 season for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micro League rolls on this weekend with the Midwest Season Opening Weekend at Belle-Clair Speedway and Macon Speedway.  Saturday’s event at Macon Speedway will be the first of four visits from the tours this season.

Heading to Macon on Saturday, Sutter, California’s Logan Seavey serves as the defending race winner. On a hot streak at that, the 2017 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League champion is the current point leader by way of a phenomenal three-win stretch in the opening five races of 2019.

While it’s the first visit of the season for the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micro League, many of the drivers already have had some on-track action this season at the speedway.  Macon has had two of its own local shows this year for the Micros presented by Bailey Chassis.  Riverton, IL driver, Aaron Andruskevitch is the current track point leader, scoring both wins.  Aiden Purdue, Tyler Day, Molly Day, and Tyler Rust complete the top five in the local points.

Saturday night’s show will also include the second Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Model event of the year.  The first was at Lincoln Speedway on April 26, where Mendon, IL’s Denny Woodworth claimed the win.  23 different Pro Late drivers attended that event.  The night will also include local points for the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models, where Dakota Ewing is the current point leader, after setting a new track record and winning a feature last weekend.  Cody Maguire, Donny Koehler, Chris Dick, and Blake Damery complete the top five.

The Archer’s Alley DIRTcar Street Stocks are also on the card.  Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick leads the points by just 10 over Gene Reed.  The division has seen three different feature winners in as many races with Dick, Reed, and Terry Reed finding victory lane.  Larry Russell, Jr. and Andy Zahnd are in the top five.

The DIRTcar Hornets complete the five division show.  Brady Reed, of Decatur, IL, has won two out of the three features so far and leads the points.  Billy Mason, Carter Dart, Marty Sullivan, and Michael Abbott are in the top five in the current standings.

Macon pits open Saturday at 3:00 PM with grandstands at 5:00, the POWRi drivers meeting is scheduled for 5:30, local driver meeting at 5:45, with hot laps on track at 6:00, and racing underway at 7:00.  Grandstand admission will be $18 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.  Those who bring a ticket stub from last weekend’s race will receive $3 off of their ticket for this week.

Wallace, Ewing Rewrite Macon Record Books

​ By BZ

(Macon, IL) Kenny Wallace has his name all over Macon Speedway. He’s a co-owner of the track with Ken Schrader, Tony Stewart and Bob Sargent. He’s a multi-time feature winner in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds class. Now, he can add “Fastest Qualifier” to the list. Wallace set the overall track record, which was broken two weeks ago during the last event at the track, with a time of 11.292. The previous mark was 11.387 which was set on April 20th by Rodney Standerfer. For Wallace, his night was just beginning.

Along with the fast time, Wallace also won his heat and got the front row starting spot in the 20-lap feature. Wallace got out to a lead and had to fend off fellow front row starter Robert Lee during the early and middle parts of the race. Wallace loosened up and Lee got aggressive during a late-race scenario and which caused the two machines to smack into one another. Lee’s car was finished for the night and Wallace regained his lead and took hold of the checkered flag for a clean sweep.

That was not the only clean sweep of the evening. Warrensburg’s Dakota Ewing also made history while driving in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model division. He broke the two-year-old track record of 11.124 with a 10.793 lap. Add in a heat race win and he was lined up for a clean sweep, as well. Ewing was dominate on the bottom of the track as he glided his way through the turns and avoided any and all lapped traffic and coasted to the feature finish line. Jeff Reed, Jr. started opposite Ewing on the front row. A driver error led to a spin out and forced Reed to restart the race from the last place position. Within the final 19 laps, Reed made up position after position and took third place behind Braden Johnson.

An unbelievable field of cars turned out in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified group. 40 cars were signed in for the night which led to five 8-car heat races as well as two 12-car B-Main feature events before the 20-lap A-Main feature event. Billy Knebel was rode up front and looked like it was his race to win. Unfortunately, a lapped car got between Knebel and second place car Owen Steinkoenig and led to a wreck. It led to Knebel wrecking and needing the assistance off the track by the tow truck. Steinkoenig assumed the lead and went the rest of the way to the checkered flag.

Gene Reed of Hammond once again found the winner’s circle in the Archer’s Alley Street Stocks. The former track champion did all he could to stop Darrell Dick, Larry Russell, Jr. and company from taking away his first place position. Reed was sharp and rode the track as perfectly as he could as he kept Dick away from the top spot. Russell lost power and pulled off the track from the third place position with one lap to go.

Dennis Vandermeersch made it two-for-two in the Sportsman division with feature wins. After running away from the group two weeks ago, Vandermeersch had a tough fight on his hands with Scott Landers. Landers, who rode the top groove most of the 15-lap feature, closed in on the leader, who stuck to the bottom, and as the race closed to a finish, Landers tried to duck low to get to Vandermeersch but couldn’t get the traction and it allowed the leader to pull away and take the win.

Brady Reed once again proved to the fastest 4-cylinder Hornet out there as he ran away and hid during the final feature of the program.

As part of a special attraction, the Kid Modz were in the pits as well as on the track and White Heath driver Jeremy Sebens took off the 8-lap race and win.

122 total racecars flooded the pits. Flooded is a difficult word to use knowing how much rain has fallen in central Illinois over the past few days. Despite the grounds being damp and the track needing extra work during the races, there was plenty of sun and wind on Saturday to help allow Macon Speedway to run its program on the first Saturday of May. With three shows in the books, the last two shows have contributed with 120 & 122 total entries. Opening Night had 96 entries. The season is just getting started and drivers and fans alike are flocking to the World’s Fastest 1/5th mile dirt oval like never before.

Next Saturday night, Macon Speedway will feature its first look of the 2019 POWRi Midgets & Micro Sprint appearance. The Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models will race a Big Ten Series event, plus Street Stocks & Hornets make up a full show that expects another 100+ racecars in the pit area.

7 Racing Divisions To Take The Track

(Macon, IL) This coming Saturday night, May 4, Macon Speedway will go back green on the 2019 season with a seven division program plus CEFCU Kid’s Club and Kid’s Bike Races.

Leading into this week, Warrensburg, IL’s Dakota Ewing and Carlinville, IL’s Cody Maguire are tied atop the point standings.  Ewing is coming off of a win two weeks ago, while Maguire has two top five finishes.  The youth movement continues in the third spot as Colby Sheppard, of Williamsville, IL holds that position after two top ten finishes.  Chris Dick and Donny Koehler complete the top five.

Tommy Sheppard, Jr. of New Berlin, IL was the champion one season ago in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds.  Sheppard has had a good start this year, claiming a win and a second place finish in the two races so far.  However, Rodney Standerfer, of Summerfield, IL, has done just as well with a win and a second place finish and is tied with Sheppard up top.  Guy Taylor, Jared Thomas, and Tim Hancock complete the top five.

Mt. Olive, IL’s Tim Hancock has a perfect record early on, going 2-for-2 in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mod division.  Decatur, IL’s Nick Justice is second in the standings, while Chad Evans, Tim Riech, and Brady Lynch round out the top three.  The Pro Mod class has had 28 different drivers take the track already this season.

Terry Reed, of Cerro Gordo, IL, leads the Archer’s Alley Street Stock points by just two markers over Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick.  Bub Russell, Gene Reed, and Bobby Beiler complete the top five after two weeks of racing.  The top five in points is dominated by Macon Speedway veterans.

Decatur, IL’s Brady Reed leads the standings in the DIRTcar Hornet class.  Carter Dart is second in the points, while Billy Mason, Marty Sullivan, and Steve Stine complete the top five.  Reed and Chuck Johnson have picked up early season wins.

Lucas Oil Late Models Set For Lucas Oil 100 Saturday Night

(Macon, IL) – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series hits the road again this weekend, returning to the “Land of Lincoln” for a $12,000-to-win event on Saturday night at Macon Speedway.  The nation’s top dirt late model drivers are expected to challenge a strong field of local and regional standouts.

The 1/5-mile bullring is accustomed to some of the most thrilling, door-to-door racing action of the season. The event will feature Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, and B-Mains, highlighted by a 100-lap, $12,000-to-win main event.

The defending National Champion, Jonathan Davenport continues to set the pace in the current Lucas Oil championship chase, 235-points ahead of four-time National Champion, Earl Pearson Jr. Tyler Erb is third, followed by Devin Moran and Josh Richards rounding out the top five in championship standings.

The event will be the sixth for the series at Macon Speedway.  Former winners include: Bobby Pierce (2014), Jimmy Owens (2015), Bobby Pierce (2016), Josh Richards (2017), and Bobby Pierce (2018).

Two other divisions will be in action racing for extra prize money, including the BillingsleyRewards.com DIRTcar Modifieds.  The class has had two exciting nights of racing and has a tie for the current point lead.  Rodney Standerfer, of Summerfield, IL, was the winner on opening night at the track, exchanging the lead several times with Tommy Sheppard, Jr. from New Berlin, IL.  On the second night, it was Sheppard taking the lead early and claiming the victory over Standerfer.  The two are tied at 118 points each, while last year’s Pro Late Model champion, Guy Taylor is third, Jared Thomas is fourth, and Tim Hancock is fifth.  The division will be racing for a little extra money this week in an event paying $1,000 to win and $100 to start.

In two weeks of racing, it’s been all Tim Hancock in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified division.  The former national champion of the class has won both features, though competition has kept him honest so far.  Just behind him in the standings is Decatur, IL driver, Nick Justice.  Justice followed him closely across the line in the season opener and had a decent run on the second night.  Chad Evans, Tim Riech, and Brady Lynch round out the top five in standings.

Pit gates open this Saturday night at 3:00 with grandstand gates swinging open at 4:00.  Hotlaps will begin at 6:00 with racing taking the green at 7:00 PM.  Grandstand admission is $30 for adults and $5 for kids 11 and under.

Standerfer Sets Record, Misses Out On Sweep

By BZ

(Macon, IL) Rodney Standerfer is a two-time Modified track champion at Macon Speedway. It’s quite an accomplishment. On Saturday night, the Opening Night feature winner came out and established a new qualifying record. Coming into the night, the standing track record was 11.425 set by Levi Kissinger on July 7, 2016, during the Herald & Review 100 Summer Nationals event. The first qualifier out of the gate was Cory Daugherty and he broke that record by 0.018 at 11.418. The next car was on the track was Standerfer who then broke that record with a 11.387 quick time to set the new mark for the BillingsleyRewards.com Modified time trials.

After making that new record, Standerfer drove into the heat race and won to set himself up in the feature on the verge of a sweep. Unfortunately for him, defending track champion Tommy Sheppard, Jr. drew the front row assignment. Sheppard raced hard and fast atop the track and took the win. Standerfer settled for second place after battling with Daugherty and Guy Taylor.

Darrell Dick took hold the checkered flag in the Archer’s Alley Street Stocks feature, which was a Midwest Big Ten Series event. Bobby Beiler look poised for the win but pulled the track five laps into the 20-lap main event. Dick took hold the lead and fended away the challenges of Nick Macklin and Terry Reed. Reed, last week’s feature winner, had a terrible start to his night by not finishing his heat race. That put him in the eighth row and 16th starting position. Reed would charge up the field and finish second ahead of Macklin.

Dennis Vandermeersch also took advantage of someone else’s misfortune. Chris Soutiea of Pevely, MO., looked in control early on in the Sportsman feature but pulled into the infield to find out that his oil pan developed a hole and he leaked oil all over the track. With his night ended, Vandermeersch rode the top side all the way to the checkered flag.

Dakota Ewing fought off the charge of Jeff Reed, Jr. to win in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model division. Reed slipped up from taking away the lead late in the battle with Ewing and took hold a strong second place showing.

Tim Hancock went 2-for-2 to start the year in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modifieds class. Starting in the front row helped dial up his success and he head back to victory lane.

Chuck Johnson has been racing for eight years and never had the chance to win a feature. Well, until Saturday night. Johnson scored his first win at Macon Speedway in the Hornets class while racing against last week’s feature winner Brady Reed. Johnson, from Waterloo, found a super fast groove up top and raced to the 15-lap win.

Aaron Andruskevitch was once again in the winner’s circle for the Micro Sprints presented by Bailey Chasis. The Riverton driver scored first in his heat race and took off in the feature.

The second night of the season was a successful one despite a cool night. 120 racecars came to the track with a bigger crowd than that of Opening Night. Next week, Macon Speedway hosts the Lucas Oil Late Model Series and their special 100-lap, $12,000-to-win feature event. The BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds race for $1,000-to-win and the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modifieds will be on the card for a $300-to-win special.

$1 Dogs & $2 Beers On Tap For Macon Speedway Saturday Night

Several Divisions Plus Spectator Drags On Track

(Macon, IL) After an outstanding season opener which saw nearly 100 racecars put on a highly entertaining show, Macon Speedway will be back at it for the second night of the 2019 season this coming Saturday, April 20.  Seven divisions of action will be highlighted by the Midwest Big Ten Series Street Stocks and the opener for the Sportsman.  Fans will be treated to $1 hot dogs and $2 beers all night long.

Saturday night will mark the first of ten races for the Midwest Big Ten Series Archer’s Alley Street Stocks.  The tour will have four events at Macon, three events at Lincoln Speedway, two events at Jacksonville, and one at the Christian County Fair.  All of the events pay $500 to win and $75 to start, which is a pretty big raise compared to their normal payouts.

Last year, Lovington, IL’s Jeremy Nichols claimed the championship, winning seven out of the ten races.  Terry Reed, Macon’s opening night winner, finished second in points  last year, while Justin Crowell, Darrell Dick, and Shawn Ziemer completed the top five in points.  The series had 59 different drivers take to the track last season.

Saturday will also mark the first race of the year for the Macon Speedway Sportsman class.  Last year’s point battle resulted in a virtual tie at 572 points between Taylorville, IL’s Tim Bedinger and Le Roy, IL’s Scott Williams.  Bedinger won the tie-breaker by having a win.  Following the duo a season ago were Dennis Vandermeersch, Scott Landers, and Ty Nation.  The division will have 12 events at Macon Speedway this year, one at Lincoln, one at the Christian County Fair, and the biggest of all at the Illinois State Fair in August.

The BillingsleyRewards.com DIRTcar Modifieds will be back for their second night of racing, after putting on arguably the best show during the opener.  Veteran Rodney Standerfer and last year’s champion, Tommy Sheppard, Jr., put on a show at the front of the pack, swapping the lead a number of times with slidejobs and crossovers.  Standerfer ended up in victory lane with Sheppard, Rick Conoyer, Guy Taylor, and Tim Hancock completing the top five.  There were 19 Modifieds in the pits on Saturday night and fans are looking forward to seeing a strong field again this weekend.

The Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models had a decent opening night with a new face in victory lane.  Catlin, IL driver, Logan Moody, claimed the victory in his first Macon Speedway start.  He did so by fending off some good Pro Late Model shoes.  Jake Little, of Springfield, IL, took second, while Torin Mettille came home third.  Cody Maguire was fourth and Chris Dick finished fifth.  While the division has a few veterans, it has a lot of young drivers that will be fun to watch this summer.

The Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods had a very familiar face in victory lane as Tim Hancock claimed the win.  It wasn’t easy for Hancock, though, as Decatur, IL’s Nick Justice followed him closely throughout the event.  The class had 15 cars at the opener, with drivers from all over the state of Illinois.

The Micros by Bailey Chassis will be back at it Saturday night, after having 22 in the pits on opening night.  Aaron Andruskevitch, of Riverton, IL, came out of the gates strong, claiming the feature win over the large field.  In exciting news for the Micros, they will be running for track points and will crown a track champion this year.  There are 16 total events for the division this year, four of which will be POWRi National shows.  All 16 will count toward the final track standings.

Rounding out Saturday’s racing classes will be the DIRTcar Hornets.  Brady Reed claimed the opening night win and will be looking to start the season two-for-two.  15 drivers were on track with many more expected to join over the next few weeks as they get their cars ready to go.

At intermission this week, Spectator Drags will be held.  The event is for those who drive their street cars to the track and want to race on Macon Speedway.  The first 8 people that sign up will be entered.  Each race is one-on-one, one lap.  The winner advances, the loser goes back to the parking lot.  It’s a tournament style bracket that ends with the winner receiving a trophy.  There is no cost to enter.  To sign up, call the office at 217-764-3200 or message us on facebook.

Macon Speedway is just a little over a week away from one of the biggest events of the year, the Lucas Oil 100 for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.  The stars of the nationally televised tour will be running 100 laps on April 27, making their sixth visit to the track.  The BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds will run for $1,000 to win and the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods will race for $300 to win.

Macon Speedway’s 74th Opener Shines

By BZ

(Macon, IL) Despite cold temperatures and threatened rain later in the evening, drivers and fans turned out to watch the season opener at the World’s Fastest 1/5th mile dirt track. Macon Speedway hosted six racing classes and nearly 100 total racecars among those classes to put on an exciting show.

Terry Reed was the first feature winner of 2019 in the Archer’s Alley Street Stock division. The former track champion looked dominate in his heat race win and got to the start on the pole. Despite closing the gap, runner up Bobby Beiler gave Reed a tough run.

The closest feature result of the evening came with the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds as Rodney Standerfer was good enough to stop defending champion Tommy Sheppard, Jr. from a late charge. Closing in the final laps, Sheppard attempted a slide job in the fourth turn but could not get it to stick as Standerfer was back on the gas out of the turn and regained the lead. Standerfer, the wily veteran, pulled away in the final lap. Prior to the race’s beginning, Standerfer was slated to start second row inside but the pole sitter Blake Thompson pulled into the infield and was unable to compete.

Logan Moody won for the first time at Macon Speedway in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models. Getting a front row starting spot, Moody did all he could to hold off Jake Little, who won the previous night at Lincoln Speedway, and with the help of some lapped traffic was able to secure the checkered flag at the end of the 20-lapper.

Tim Hancock is back. The former National Champion as well as track champion jumped out early and took advantage of the open track to pull away. The Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods will have their hands full this season if Hancock chooses to run a full slate instead of a partial schedule as he did last season.

Aaron Andruskevitch of Riverton took charge of the Micro Sprint feature on the third lap of the feature and drifted away from Aiden Purdue and the rest of the group as he coasted to a win. The Micro Sprints registered 22 cars for the most among the six divisions of the night.

Brady Reed and Michael McKay were neck and neck for the Hornet feature but Reed had just a little more to take the race and the first Hornets feature of the season.

Macon Speedway wishes to thank all those who braved the cold to join for the 74th consecutive season of racing during the Opening Night. Millikin University and their students were on hand as the sponsor and even had some students from other countries able to join on the judge’s stand and wave flags during the night’s features.

Next week, Macon Speedway hosts spectator drag races as well as dollar dogs & $2 beers at the racetrack.
