Little Takes Feature on Armed Forces Night

By BZ

(Macon, IL) Jake Little and his uncle Ryan are active members in the Illinois National Guard and the US Army. On Armed Forces Night, Jake Little reigned supreme in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model Feature at Macon Speedway. Little missed out on a possible championship in 2018 when he was sent overseas for active duty in August into September and missed many of the final races to take away his points lead. Ryan Little doesn’t have much of a chance to race enough for a championship because of his active status which has forced him away from the racecar for the majority of the 2019 season.

Both Little drivers started in the front row and looked prepared to take the race but Jake Little knew he had to get to the high side and run away from the group. He was able to do just that. Dakota Ewing, starting from the 13th position due to a DNF in his heat race due to a near rollover and a flat tire, broke through the pack and challenged for a top five finish. Ewing would finish third in the 20-lap feature and nearly finish in the runner-up spot.

Tommy Sheppard, Jr. won the feature in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds. The race was his for the entire event but a late caution set up a bumper-to-bumper restart with Rodney Standerfer behind Sheppard. Standerfer pulled close-to-even with the leader but couldn’t find a way to make the pass and Sheppard took another checkered flag.

Wes O’Dell was sharp in the Sportsman class. After winning his heat by a half lap ahead of the second place finisher, O’Dell started on the front row outside position and blasted off ahead of Scott Landers and the rest of the cars. The former champion looked dominate and made an impact in the Sportsman points standings as points leader Dennis Vandermeersch was not part of the 12-car field.

Terry Reed took another Archer’s Alley Street Stocks feature win. Two weeks ago, his brother Gene Reed won the feature and Terry took the Opening Night checkered flag. It was a Reed Win-Place-Show as Gene took second place and Joe Reed finished third in the field.

Tim Hancock was on his A-game once again as he took control of his heat race and then ran off with the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified feature. For Hancock, he has taken the checkered flag in three of the first four events during the 2019 season.

Wrapping up the show Saturday night was the Hornets. A new winner took to the winner’s circle in Anthony Sunshine, a driver from St. Louis, Missouri. Sunshine’s home track has been flooded out due to much of the spring rains so a trip north to Macon gave him plenty of competition and a chance to race. Brady Reed, starting tenth due to winning the last Hornet feature, rushed towards the front and challenged for the top spot. Another Missouri driver, Joshua Hawkins from Imperial, finished in third during his first trip to the track in 2019.

Among the six racing classes was another solid night of cars in the pit area, 90, so Macon Speedway brings forth quality in numbers during all the classes so far during the first four weeks of the season. Macon Speedway takes a rare scheduled Saturday night off to prep for a monster week at the track beginning on Memorial Day Monday. The annual event, Miller Lite Beer Twin 50s, is on tap for the Decatur Building Trade Pro Late Models and the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modifieds. A full stock car racing show is scheduled. Thursday, May 30th, is the second-ever 95Q Up On The Wheel Modified 100–a 100-lap feature for the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds plus the MOWA Sprints. The week is capped off with a fan-favorite, the Five Buck Night. General admission is just $5 plus it will be the kids bicycle giveaway night along with a full program.

Macon Speedway To Honor Military Members Saturday Night

Active & Retired Military Members To Receive Free Admission

(Macon, IL) This coming Saturday night, May 18, Macon Speedway will honor those who fight for our freedoms, as it is time for the annual Armed Forces Night. Active and retired military members will receive free grandstand admission once showing proper military ID at the ticket window.  Six divisions of racing are on the card.

Coming into the night, three nights of racing have been held with the other two nights resulting in rainouts.  In the Decatur Building Trades DIRTcar Pro Late Models, Dakota Ewing is on top of the point chase, garnering two feature wins in a row and setting a new qualifying track record.  Carlinville, IL’s Cody Maguire is second in the standings with a pair of top five finishes, while Donny Koehler, Chris Dick, and Blake Damery round out the top five in points out of the 23 drivers who have competed in the division this season.

Last year’s BillingsleyRewards.com Modified champion is again off to a good start with the point lead this year.  It’s New Berlin, IL’s Tommy Sheppard, Jr., who currently holds a 12 point advantage over last year’s Pro Late champion, Guy Taylor, of Springfield, IL.  Jared Thomas, Alan Crowder, and Rodney Standerfer are currently in the top five.  31 different Modified drivers have been on track already this year.

The strongest division, when it comes to large numbers, is the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods.  Nearly 50 drivers have been to the track this year with Decatur, IL’s Nick Justice leading the points, having grabbed two top fives in three starts.  Mt. Olive, IL’s Tim Hancock won the first two races of the season but had a DNF in the third race due to mechanical issues.  Hancock is second in points, while Chad Evans, Billy Nail, and Troy Medley complete the top five.

The DIRTcar Sportsman have raced twice so far this season and Springfield, IL driving veteran, Dennis Vandermeersch is batting 1.000, winning both.  Last year’s champion, Tim Bedinger, has a pair of top fives and sits second in points, while Scott Landers, Terry Myers, and Mitch Ringler round out the top five.

A longtime driving veteran is off to a good start in the Archer’s Alley Street Stock class, as Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick leads the way.  Dick has claimed a feature win as have the second and third place point contenders.  Dick is followed by the brothers’ Reed.  Gene Reed is second in points, while Terry Reed is third.  Bub Russell is currently fourth with Andy Zahnd rounding out the top five.

Decatur, IL’s Brady Reed is following in the footsteps of his older brother, Jeremy, having a strong start in the Hornet class.  While Jeremy has moved on in hopes of competing in the Street Stock class, Brady has won two of three features and leads the standings.  Billy Mason is second in the current standings, while Carter Dart, Marty Sullivan, and Michael Abbott complete the top five.  30 different Hornet drivers have raced so far this year, many of which are tuning up for the June 8 Ed Cain Trucking Hornet Challenge which will pay $1,000 to win.

Grandstand admission is just $12 on Saturday night for adults, while kids 11 and under are free.  As previously mentioned, military members, active and retired will also receive free grandstand admission if they show proper military ID at the ticket window.

Afternoon Rain & Cold Temps Force Macon Speedway Cancellation

 

(Macon, IL) Unseasonable weather continued to plague Central Illinois on Saturday, May 11, as high temperatures in the low 50’s and wet weather forced the cancellation of the first POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget visit of 2019 to Macon Speedway.  Four other divisions were also on schedule.

For the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, the rainout comes after a Friday night at Belle-Clair Speedway, in Belleville, IL that saw Austin Brown claim the feature win.  In upwards of 40 cars were on hand.  The Midgets have three more events scheduled at Macon.  The remaining dates are June 15, August 17, and September 14.

Up next for Macon Speedway is Armed Forces night on Saturday, May 18.  Retired and active military members will receive free admission after showing proper ID at the ticket window.  The Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models, BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds, Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods, DIRTcar Sportsman, Archer’s Alley Street Stocks, and DIRTcar Hornets will be in action.

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.

Kids Bike Races & CEFCU Kids Club Highligh Saturday’s Event

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.

Back on the card this week are the DIRTcar Sportsman.  Two weeks ago, Dennis Vandermeersch, of Springfield, IL dominated the feature.  Terry Myers, of Buffalo, IL, made his way through the field to take the second spot, while Mitch Ringler, Joel Irvin, and Tim Bedinger round out the top five in points.

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.

Rounding out the racing program will be a visit from the DIRTcar KidModz.  The division is geared toward kids 8-16 years of age interested in Modified racing.  The series was designed to get kids started in the sport.  At most events, a handful of kids compete in the KidModz races.

At intermission, kids bike races will be held.  All girls and boys ages 15 and under are welcome to bring their bikes to compete.  Helmets are highly recommended as well.  In addition, CEFCU Kids Club will be held before the races in the pavilion.

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.
