Illinois Motorsports Commission Planned Steps On Reopening

IL Motorsports Coalition ReOpening Steps[9]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 15, 2020
Illinois Motorsports Coalition formed to lobby state government on behalf of motorsports industry, tracks, businesses, participants and fans
 
Plan for reopening presented to Illinois Dept. of Commerce and Economic Opportunity
and Bain Consulting on behalf of Governor J.B. Pritzker
Springfield, IL  – Owners and operators of more than 30 motorsports facilities, racing related industries and professionals located in the state of Illinois today announced the formation of the Illinois Motorsports Coalition (IMC). The purpose of the coalition is to bring awareness of the motorsports industry and serve as a lobbying arm as it pertains to racing in Illinois.
IMC members have formulated an eight-step, one-year plan to operate their facilities safely and responsibly.
Representatives from the IMC will present the proposal to government officials when the state legislative session resumes on May 18.
Matt Curl, owner and promoter of Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois, is the spokesperson for the IMC.
IMC has launched a Facebook page and today released the following statement:
“In an effort to inform and educate the Governor of Illinois’ staff, and with guidance by leading industry professionals, we have submitted the Illinois Motorsports Coalition (IMC) plan to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity as well as Bain Consulting. Bain Consulting has been selected by Governor Pritzker to develop policies as it pertains to the Restore Illinois Regional Phase Plan.
We have presented a comprehensive plan to reopen motorsports safely and responsibly in Illinois with significant compromise and tremendous restrictions to our normal operating procedures. Our seasonal businesses have already suffered significant losses. Further delay will result in multi-generational family businesses closing for good if an immediate opening plan is not approved.  We know that our plan will give adequate protection to all motorsports fans, participants and employees as required by the Centers for Disease Control.
Like many patriotic Americans, we understood the importance of the COVID-19 crisis and willingly closed our businesses to provide adequate time to help flatten the curve in Illinois. However, flatten the curve, which was to have been a program with a limited time-frame, now has suddenly changed to find a cure. As other surrounding states are responsibly reopening their motorsports venues, we continue to watch our participants and fans traveling to other areas. They return home with empty pockets while we helplessly are doing the right thing.
We need an administration that is willing to listen and review our operating plan.
We now understand enough to know that the spread of infectious disease can safely be mitigated. We can’t be stuck in the trap of complacency through shelter-in-place orders. We MUST MOVE FORWARD while living with this challenge by acting responsibly and doing the right thing.  We now know it’s up to the citizens of Illinois to do the right thing and not have the way they live their lives dictated to them.”
The IMC’s eight-step, one-year plan may be viewed on the Illinois Motorsports Coalition Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ILRace/?__tn__=%2CdK-R-R&eid=ARD9QwBU7KwX8DKiiAdw7SOXpMkI5arDeqIh-h0M3dXtpFWamEdvS0QRd7auBRQGlDGUGtr_4caQAoqC&fref=mentions

Thank you!

We at Macon Speedway and Lincoln Speedway want to thank everyone who attended our private test sessions last Saturday and Sunday. We truly hope everyone enjoyed themselves. We also want to thank everyone for all of the positive comments and support. The racers, crew, and families, despite these trying and new times, were very complimentary and supportive of our process. And, last but not least, thanks to all of the governmental agencies and authorities for listening to our ideas and suggesting guidelines.
 
For the other race track that tried so hard to get the practices closed down, we just don’t have words for you and feel bad for everyone you tried to hurt.
 
Everyone have a great and safe week. The health and safety of you and your family should come first. We will have details out shortly about our planned private test sessions coming Friday and Saturday.
 
Thanks,
Management

75th Season of Racing Delayed at Macon Speedway

(Macon, IL) 2020 is set to be a very special season at Macon Speedway, as it marks the 75th year of racing at the 1/5-mile dirt track in Macon, IL.  While the season was set to begin this Saturday, April 11, the excitement will be on hold for a while, as officials wait out the COVID-19 restrictions that have swept the nation.

Speedway officials have been following the news and press conferences regarding the current health issues with Coronavirus since early to mid-March when changes started taking place by the minute.  To date, Macon Speedway has canceled the Hickory Point Mall Car Show, two weekends of test and tune, and now the Season Opener.  The Lucas Oil Late Model race, scheduled for April 25, was canceled late last week in addition to the whole slate of races in April for the series.

The Illinois Stay-At-Home order currently runs through the month of April, meaning the likelihood of having any event before May is slim.  At this time, there is no date set in stone on when the season will begin but Macon Speedway officials are putting everything in place to be ready to open as soon as the time is right and clearance is given.

In the meantime, Macon Speedway’s Facebook page has been busy, with numerous posts each day, highlighting drivers and their cars and paint schemes for the 2020 season.  In addition, the special edition Macon Speedway t-shirt, commemorating the 75th season of racing is now on sale via the website or Facebook page.

To stay up to date with happenings at the track, please follow Macon Speedway at maconracing.com, on Facebook at facebook.com/maconracing, and on twitter at twitter.com/maconspeedway.

Additional Schedule Adjustments Announced by Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series

BY LUCAS OIL LATE MODEL DIRT SERIES

BATAVIA, OH (April 3, 2020) – On Sunday, March 29th, President Donald Trump extended federal social distancing guidelines through the end of April due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This announcement forces the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials to postpone and cancel additional events.

This extension now also affects events at Hagerstown Speedway, Port Royal Speedway, Tri-City Speedway, and Macon Speedway. The series hopes to resume the original schedule on May 1st at Ponderosa Speedway and May 2nd at Florence Speedway.

Port Royal Speedway’s Rumble by the River, originally scheduled for April 19th, has been postponed until Thursday, August 27th.

The Nininger Tribute at Hagerstown Speedway, scheduled for April 18th, has now been canceled. Also canceled are the Budweiser 50 at Tri-City Speedway scheduled for April 24th and the April 25th event at Macon Speedway. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials look forward to the return to Tri-City Speedway on July 17th for the NAPA Know How 50; and to Hagerstown Speedway and Macon Speedway in 2021.

With the ever changing guidelines set forth by the federal, state, local, and public health officials, along with information that is based on guidelines from the CDC, the series has begun discussion with promoters to create alternative dates for races through the end of May. Please note, at this time, all May series events are set to take place as originally scheduled, the alternative dates are only there in case the need were to arise. The alternative dates can be viewed by visiting: https://lucasdirt.com/events/schedule.

Jack Hewitt Night Set For May 9 At Macon Speedway

(Macon, IL) The 2020 schedule is going to be an exciting one for Macon Speedway, as it’s the 75th season of racing at the 1/5-mile high banked dirt oval.  One new addition to the schedule is “Jack Hewitt Night”, set for Saturday, May 9 as the open wheel cars of POWRi make their first appearance of the season.

Hewitt is a two-time champion of the USAC Silver Crown Series as well as a former titlist of the All Star Circuit of Champions.  In addition, Hewitt was the 1998 winner of the Eldora 4-Crown Nationals, winning features in USAC Sprints, Midgets, and Silver Crown as well as the UMP Modifieds.

Those who did not have the pleasure of watching Hewitt race may know him from the heated video interview that has gone viral on the web.  The interview, laced with some NSFW language, has been viewed over 1,000,000 times on Facebook alone.  It has also led to a line of apparel and souvenirs.  That interview just happened to take place at, you guessed it, Macon Speedway.

The May 9th event at Macon Speedway will feature Hewitt as the grand marshal.  He will be on hand, greeting fans, selling books and apparel, signing autographs, telling stories, and taking in some great Macon Speedway action.

The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, POWRi Micros, Big Ten Pro Late Models, BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds, and Hornets are scheduled to race.
