Midwest Big Ten Series Releases 2017 Schedules

Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, & Street Stocks On The Docket

Midwest Big Ten Series officials have announced the 2017 schedules for all three divisions of racing.  This year, drivers, teams, and fans will see many of the same popular Illinois venues along with the addition of one more.  The Midwest Big Ten Series was created in 2013 to give Super Late Model teams a schedule of ten solid regional races with a point fund waiting at the end.  Street Stocks were added in 2014, while Pro Late Models came the following year.  All three classes saw improved car counts and racing in 2016.

The premier class of the Midwest Big Ten Series, the Super Late Models, will see ten events at a record six tracks in 2017.  The familiar stops of Macon, Quincy, Jacksonville, Lincoln, and Belle-Clair are back from a season ago.  New this year is a first-ever stop at Highland Speedway in Highland, IL.  Steve Sheppard, Jr., Ryan Little, and Brian Diveley have been champions in the series, with Diveley claiming at least a share of the last three.  The series will open up with a May 5/May 7 doubleheader weekend at Belle-Clair and Quincy.

In 2015, the Pro Late Models were thrown into the Midwest Big Ten Series mix to give those drivers a chance at some more lucrative races.  This year’s schedule again features ten races at Central Illinois facilities in Lincoln, Macon, and Jacksonville.  Guy Taylor won the championship in 2015, while his brother, Matt, took top honors this past season.  For the Pro Lates, it all begins on Friday, May 5 at Lincoln Speedway.

Rounding out the slate will be the ten race schedule for the Street Stocks.  This year’s tour stops are similar to last season, with Macon, Lincoln, and Jacksonville, plus the one-off Christian County Fair stop in Taylorville, IL.  Decatur, IL driver, Terry Reed, won the first two championships, while Lovington, IL’s Jeremy Nichols grabbed last year’s.  The Street Stocks open up on Saturday, April 22 at Macon Speedway.

A $4,000 point fund will be distributed to the Super Late Models at the end of the season, while $3,000 point funds will be handed out to Pro Late Models and Street Stocks.  The drivers final points are totaled, using their best eight events from the season, allowing two drops.  This year, the top ten drivers in each class will be eligible for the point money, as long as they compete in at least 75% of the completed events.

About Midwest Big Ten Series:
The Midwest Big Ten Series is made up of 10 races each for UMP Super Late Models, UMP Pro Late Models, and UMP Street Stocks, throughout the state of Illinois.  Drivers in each class collect points for a season ending point fund.

From winning a championship as a competitor to building a top tier program as an owner Mason is a true professional and wonderful role model for todays youth. His compassion for the community and his desire to make a difference really make him one of kind both on and off the track.”

Mason will also be visiting 300 Below Inc a local cryogenic processing lab to have his race car rotors treated.
