Herald & Review 100 Postponed Due To Wet Grounds

Rained Out Graphic                Macon Speedway officials were forced to pull the plug on the July 9 running of the Herald & Review 100, due to extremely wet grounds at the 1/5-mile facility.  Track officials had hoped to be able to pull off a miracle and get the facility ready for the evening’s events but the lack of sunshine and cool temperatures did not help the efforts.

Despite a dry forecast for Thursday, the huge amounts of rainfall throughout Central Illinois on Wednesday caused a number of county flood warnings and soggy conditions at Macon Speedway.  Even the track, which usually dries fairly quickly and holds up well in days following rain, was soaked from overnight rains that would not leave.

Track promoter Bob Sargent stated, “Had we not had the rain overnight, I think we would’ve been okay.  When I saw it raining at 2:30 in the morning, I knew we were in trouble.”

The 35th running of the Herald & Review 100 will be rescheduled on Wednesday, August 26 as part of a huge weekend of Late Model racing in the midwest.  In addition to the Summer National Hell Tour Late Models, the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals, and B-Mods were also on the card.

The next event on the Macon Speedway schedule is this coming Saturday, July 11 with six divisions of action.  The Sportsman Topless 40, Big Ten Pro Late Models, Billingsley Towing Modifieds, B-Mods, Street Stocks, and Hornets are all on the action packed card.

Admission prices will be $12 for adults but $6 for women for Bud Light Ladies Night.  Children 11 and under are admitted free of charge.

Pits will open Saturday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps will begin at 6:00 shortly after the pill draw ends and racing will begin at 7:00.

Herald & Review Scheduled For Tonight

As of this morning, the Herald & Review 100 is still on. However, the area took a huge amount of rain yesterday so the grounds are extremely wet. The track prep crew will continue to monitor the situation over the next couple of hours to see if racing tonight will be feasible. We will keep you posted on Facebook and the website if anything changes.

Hell Tour Set To Invade Macon Speedway Thursday

Babb, Pierce, Feger, & Moyer Among Favorites

07-09-15 Summer Nationals Flyer                15 events into the 2015-edition of the UMP Summer Nationals Hell Tour, the cream is rising to the top in the point chase.  While the first seven events had different winners at each race, the recent events have seen Shannon Babb and Jason Feger starting to warm up.  All the stars will converge on Macon Speedway this coming Thursday, July 9 for the 35th running of the Herald & Review 100.

The Macon Speedway event should be a great one as local favorite, Shannon Babb, of Moweaqua, IL, recently won his third event on the tour.  Babb claimed the Tri-State Speedway event on Sunday, in addition to his earlier wins at Fairbury and Peoria.  He will, no doubt, be the top pick on Thursday night as he has won the last two Herald & Review 100’s, three of four, and five of the last nine.   His list of challengers, however, will be tough to beat.

Current Summer Nationals point leader, Bobby Pierce, of Oakwood, IL, might be the one to knock Babb off his pedestal.  Pierce was extremely strong at the Lucas Oil Late Model event in April, but a flat tire cost him the victory while leading.  Pierce has not won this historic event but his dad, Bob, has four trophies, with his last in 2001.

Bloomington, IL driver, Jason Feger has recently warmed up, as well.  Feger claimed his first 2015 Hell Tour trophy on June 13 at Cedar Lake Speedway and added two more, with the wins coming at Daugherty Speedway on July 1 and Highland Speedway on July 4.

The current standings are led by the “Smooth Operator” Bobby Pierce.  The young racer has a 48 point lead on Billy Moyer, Jr. and a 100 point advantage on Feger.  Babb is fourth in this year’s rundown, while Ryan Unzicker is fifth.  Timothy Culp, Jim Moon, Billy Moyer, John Hahler, and Michael Kloos complete the top ten in the current standings.  Events are schedule Monday-Wednesday at Lincoln, Vermillion County, and Florence and may shake up the standings a bit more before the Macon event.

This Thursday’s race will mark the 35th year for the Herald & Review 100.  Forsyth, IL driver Butch Garner won the first one back in 1981.  Babb has the most wins with 5, while Bob Pierce and Kevin Weaver have four each.  If Bobby Pierce does find victory lane, he and his dad will become the second father-son duo to win the event.  Springfield, IL Dick and Matt Taylor were the first to complete the feat.

In addition to the $5,000 to win event for the Late Models, the Summit National Modifieds will also be on hand.  Round out the night’s card will be the return of the B-Mods.

Pit gates will open Thursday at 3:00, grandstands at 4:00, hotlaps start at 6:00, and racing will begin at 7:00.  Adult admission is $25, while children 11 and under are $5.

Felker Sweeps Freedom Fest At Macon

Saturday, July 4 finished off the two-night celebration of POWRi Freedom Fest at Macon Speedway.  Another stellar field of cars was on hand with POWRi Midgets and Micros, in addition to non-wing Micros and the Billingsley Towing Modifieds.  After a free live concert in the parking lot, all attention turned to the thrilling 1/5-mile where racing ensued.

Justin Peck, wheeling the black 5x, took the early lead to pace the 20-car POWRi Midget starting field.  The race’s first caution came out with two laps in, as Brandon Lynch had a wild flip in the third turn.  Back to green, only one more lap was put on the board before a multi-car parking lot ensued in turn two.  The field got rolling during the next run and with ten laps complete, Friday night’s winner, Andrew Felker, moved into second.  By lap 12, Felker had run down Peck who was caught in traffic.  One lap later, Felker shot by and into the lead.  Over the final 16 laps, a few more cautions slowed the pace but racing at the front heated up on the final couple of laps.  Spencer Baytson ran down Felker to make a move on the last lap but came up just short at the checkered.  It was the second win at Macon during the weekend for the Carl Junction,Missouri wheelman.  Bayston took second, while Darren Hagen rallied late for a third place finish.

22 POWRi Micros raced under Joey Webb’s green flag at the start of their 20-lap feature event.  As the field raced to the end of lap one, it was Friday night’s winner, Nathan Benson, leading the way.  It was clear sailing until about lap nine, when Benson caught a plethora of cars at the end of the lead lap.  For the Concordia, Missouri driver, it didn’t matter, as he worked high and low of traffic much quicker than his closest competitors.  The sweep for Benson was complete, much like the one for Felker.  Christopher Cochran and Jeremy Camp were the other podium finishers.

Benson wasn’t satisfied with just two wins on the weekend.  The 2B started toward the front of the pack for the Shelton Wingless special and led the first two laps.  Last night’s wingless winner, Tony Clifton moved into the top spot on lap three and remained out front until the race’s midpoint.  After a lap ten restart, Benson reassumed the point and held on to the victory, his third of the weekend.

Marc McClintock, making his first Macon Modified start, led the field early on the 20-lap main event.  Alan Crowder led for the middle stages of the race before Curt Rhodes took over, despite a damaged car.  Rhodes, from Langleyville, IL, drove masterfully over the last handful of laps to fend off challenges from Crowder and Rodney Standerfer, who came from the back after a flat tire.

Racing will continue this coming Thursday, July 9 with the UMP Summernationals Hell Tour coming to town for the Herald & Review 100.  In addition to the touring Late Model stars, the Summit National Modifieds will be on hand as well as the B-Mods.  Pits will open at 3:00, grandstands at 4:00, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing will begin at 7:00.

Night One Of Macon Freedom Fest Complete

A very special weekend of racing and entertainment is taking place to celebrate the Independance Day holiday at Macon Speedway.  On Friday night, the first of back-to-back nights was completed for POWRi Freedom Fest.  In addition to the POWRi Midgets and Micros, Wingless Micros, and Street Stocks were also on hand.

The first feature on track was the 30-lap event for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets.  22 drivers were trackside for the main event after setting the starting field from the 39 attendees.  When the green dropped, Justin Grant pulled out front with Ryan Robinson and Andrew Felker in tow.  Felker moved into second after the race’s first caution, to set his sights on the top spot.  On lap 11, Felker pulled off a slide job to take the top spot.  Five laps later, Robinson took the lead away from Felker.  His lead was short lived as they diced through traffic and Felker was determined to get back out front.  On lap 18, Felker took over and raced his way to the checkered, as slide job after slide job took place on the Mighty Macon oval.  Following the Carl Junction, Missouri driver to the exciting victory was Darren Hagen, who made some late passes to take second.  Grant, Spencer Bayston, and Robinson rounded out the top five.  The Midgets will be back for more on Saturday.

Ayrton Gennetten paced the POWRi Speedway Motors Micros at the start of their 20-lap A-Main.  After a caution plagued first four laps, the field got sorted out and the action picked up.  Gennetten was receiving plenty of pressure from his closest challenger, Nathan Benson.  Christopher Cochran joined to make it a three car lead battle up front.  Dicing inside, outside, and through the middle of traffic, Gennetten was able to fend off some strong challenges.  After a late yellow, Benson, another Missouri competitor, raced into the lead on lap 18 to take the victory.  Gennetten took second, Cochran third, Tucker Klaasmeyer fourth, and Dereck King fifth.

Point leader, Terry Reed, of Decatur, IL led from green-to-checker to take yet another Street Stock feature win.  Larry Russell, Jr. and Bobby Beiler completed the podium finishers.

In the non-wing Micro feature, Decatur, IL driver Tony Clifton took the lead at the green and went on to claim the main event victory.  Daniel Robinson and Tyler Vantroll took second and third.  The non-wing cars will be back on Saturday night for a 20-lap special event, paying extra money.

Day #2 of Freedom Fest will be Saturday, July 4.  Both POWRi divisions will be on hand in addition to non-wing micros and the Billingsley Towing Modifieds.  From 4:00-7:00, there will be live musical entertainment in the parking lot with Brian Shartzer and the Garth Brooks Tribute Band.  The concert is free to attend.

Pits will open at 3:00, grandstands at 4:00, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing will begin at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $15, while children 11 and under are free.
