Eve Of DestructionGo-Karts On The August 8 Card

Coming off of one of the biggest events of the year, Macon Speedway is carrying momentum to its stretch run on the 2015-schedule.  This past Saturday’s KERBYSTRONG 100 drew the second largest car count of the season with 34 Super Late Models and over 100 cars overall.  The rest of August will feature a variety of can’t miss events including Go-Karts this week, with the 1st ever Macon Speedway Eve of Destruction, the final POWRi Night of the year, and the rescheduled Herald & Review 100.

Rounding out the rest of the month, POWRi will return for its final visit of the season on Saturday, August 22 with their Lucas Oil National Midgets and Speedway Motors Micros.  The Billingsley Towing UMP Modifieds and UMP Street Stocks will also be on the card.

Just four days later, Macon will be back in action with the rescheduled Herald & Review 100 for the Super Late Models.  It is the makeup for the rained out Summernationals event.  The Wednesday, August 26 event will also feature the Billingsley Towing Modifieds and B-Mods.

The last event of the month will be on Saturday, August 29.  On that night, the 11th annual Illinois Street Stock championship will be held for the Midwest Big Ten Series Street Stocks.  The Billingsley Towing Modifieds, B-Mods, Hornets, and Beach House Micros will also compete.

A Perfect Ten: Kerbystrong 100 at Macon Speedway

(Macon, IL)–Macon Speedway honored the late Kerby Damery, a Macon native and former Macon Speedway track champion, with a trifecta of racing classes in which Damery raced during his longtime career. Damery was honored with a total of 100 laps with 50 in the UMP Super Late Model class, and 25 laps each for the Billingsley Towing Modifieds and the Sportsman.

Damery’s most recognized trophy class was the Late Model division where he was the track champion in 2004, in addition to claiming Budweiser Shootout wins in 1998 & 2001. 34 Late Models were signed in, the most in a long time for that division.

The 50-lap feature for the Late Models featured back and forth action with Dave Crawley, Jr. and Scott Schmitt. Crawley lost control of the lead on lap 37 when a lapped car slowed Crawley and Schmitt took the top spot and started to pull away. Crawley pulled into the infield during a caution on lap 40 and did not return. Schmitt, of Tonica, dominated the final ten laps and cruised to the victory. How fitting for the Late Model feature winner to use the same number as Kerby Damery, #10.

Dennis Vandermeersch, a firefighter from Springfield, took the win in the Sportsman 25-lapper. He was second-fiddle to Jeremy Nichols until Nichols pulled into the infield with a lap to go. Vandermeersch was more than excited to win and thanked the Damery family and Kerbystrong for bringing the event to Macon Speedway. “I raced a lot of races with Kerby Damery and he was a class-act, clean racer, and we had a lot of fun.” Damery was a Sportsman track champion in 1990.

Damery raced in the Billingsley Towing Modifieds for a brief time in his career and the Kerbystrong event honored him with a 25-lap event, which was won by Dave Crawley, Jr. Crawley got a front row assignment and took off early and often to lead all laps and score the victory.

Greg Osman was awarded the Street Stock feature win amid a wild and crazy finish with Terry Reed.  The two drivers collided on the exit of turn four, pushing the Osman car into the wall.  Reed was penalized a spot and placed second.

Garrett Duff made it a sweep in the Beach House Mini Sprints as he won the heat and the 15-lap feature.

Adam Webb returned to victory lane in the 4-cylinder Hornet class with a pass on Mike Eskew following a caution lap.

The evening started with Damery’s widow Nikki speaking proudly of her husband’s battle with cancer which took his life in February. The jam-packed bleachers wore orange shirts, which was the favorite color of Damery.

KerbySTRONG 100 honors man’s passion for life while fighting cancer

Damery FamilySpecial From Herald & Review…

MACON – Never a man to go slow, even in death Kerby Damery’s passion for life will continue with a race benefiting cancer patients.

“Live life, don’t just go through it!” was one of his many expressions and now the motto for the namesake KerbySTRONG Foundation.

“(Because) once you’re hit with the devastation of cancer you live stronger,” said his wife of 23 years Nikki Damery.

This Saturday, the foundation is hosting the KerbySTRONG 100 Race at the Macon Speedway, Damery’s hometown track where he raced for the checkered flag throughout his life.

Kerby Damery died Feb. 8 at the age of 49 after an eight-year battle with cancer. He was diagnosed with appendix cancer in 2007, but never lost his positive attitude through years of surgeries and cancer treatments.

“That was Kerby,” Damery said. “He never complained he was always uplifting and always liked to make people laugh.”

After being diagnosed, Damery was determined to continue racing and did so during off treatments, driving his late model series car, that bears the number 10. But his passion eventually became too much of a risk and his last race was in 2010. After that, he wouldn’t even go out and watch.

“That was the hardest part for Kerby that he loved racing and he didn’t want to let that go,” Nikki Damery said.

Macon Speedway owner Bob Sargent was glad to help Kerby Damery return to his hometown track again when Nikki Damery approached him about hosting a fundraiser race.

“It’s an honor to promote the KerbySTRONG 100 Race to remember a good friend and special race car driver,” Sargent said.

He said Damery had a lot of friends in the racing community who will participate this weekend.

“We think a lot of racers will want to be involved with this,” Sargent said.

The KerbySTRONG 100 is both a way to remember Damery and help those still battling cancer by raising money to assist patients with treatment costs and funding a new position to help patients navigate the treatment process. Part of its mission is to promote cancer awareness and screening opportunities.

“We want people like cars, to keep your body tuned up and maintain annual checkups,” Damery said.

Dr. James Wade, one of the oncologists who treated Kerby Damery at the Cancer Care Center of Decatur, said groups like Kerby Strong are part of a larger team of advocates raising awareness one event at a time. This event in particular helps reach a new audience.

“It is a little bit more rural and you’re going to be bringing people in from other counties,” Wade said. “Every bit of outreach gets more people into the fold.”

Wade said in a population Decatur’s size, out of every 100 people screened for cancer, two to five of them will be saved by catching it early. Since appendix cancer is rare, there is no screening for it, but Wade said Kerby’s foundation has recognized the importance of screenings for cancers that can be caught early such as breast, cervix, lung and colon.

He pointed to decreased colon cancer rates as an example of successful, long term awareness efforts. In the past decade, advanced cases of colon cancer dropped about 27 percent. However, Wade said awareness of cancer screenings are crucial because a third of people who should be getting screened for colon cancer still are not.

“Every group that gets the message out pushes the awareness farther into the community,” he said.

Unfortunately in 2007, Damery was diagnosed with Stage IV Appendix Cancer.  Damery lived life to its fullest up until his death in February of this year at the age of 49.  In his memory, his family has created this race night to raise funds to provide immediate assistance to qualified patients with cancer who need support while undergoing cancer treatments.  Numerous sponsors have stepped forward to help with the huge event and proceeds will benefit local cancer patients.

Jones Claims MOWA Win With Macon Speedway Photo Finish

(Macon, IL)–One time per season, the MOWA sprint cars come to Macon Speedway during the Illinois Sprint Week and the 410 winged sprint cars put on an amazing show this past Saturday night.

Cory Bruns of Lincoln was set to have a great race in the 25-lap A-Main feature event. Leading through the opening nine laps, he was slowed by lapped cars and was passed by dash winner Adam Jones and in his attempt to regain the lead in the fourth turn, Bruns spun out and the caution flag came out. Jones took off with the lead and was chased down by Parker Price-Miller, who got the lead with the slide job in the fourth turn of the 13th lap. Jones would once again bounce back in the lead on the white flag lap and coming from the fourth turn Price-Miller performed another slide job but could not make it hold as a side-by-side finish would go to Jones from Wright City, Mo.

Terry Reed of Decatur continues to dominate the Street Stock class at Macon Speedway. Starting in the second row, Reed made the pass for the lead on Brian Dasenbrock on the sixth lap and was hounded all the way to checkered flag by Greg Osman, Bobby Beiler and Kyle Waters. Reed, who won the feature race Wednesday evening at the Christian County Fair 25-lap special feature, grabbed his second checkered flag of the week.

Another dominator in divisions has been Rodney Standerfer in the Billingsley Towing Modifieds. Getting a front row starting spot and a short challenge from polesitter TD Burger, Standerfer took off and won by a quarter of a lap over Burger and Curt Rhodes snatched third from Chad Evans at the finish line.

Jeremy Nichols got his first Sportsman feature win of 2015. He was runner up to Timmy Dick but by the fourth lap, Dick was caught up in the cushion of mud near the wall of the second turn and stalled out to bring out the yellow flag. Nichols drove away and got his second checkered flag of the week after winning the 25-lap feature Wednesday night in Taylorville.

In the 4-cylinder Hornets, newcomer Rickey Carriker jumped in the lead and flew away from the field to take the feature race win. Brian Deavers got close but ran out of laps before being able to catch Carriker.

Macon Speedway hosted a series race for the Illinois Lightning Sprint Series and Andy Baugh was on the gas from the green flag to win both the heat and the 15-lap feature race.

The inaugural KerbyStrong100 starts the month of August at Macon Speedway with a special $2,000-to-win Super Late Model 50-lapper with $700-to-win for the Billingsley Towing Modifieds and $600-to-win for the Sportsman division as the track honors the memory of former driver Kerby Damery, who passed away in February due to cancer.

B-Mods Offered $50 Billingsley Towing Bonus At Macon Speedway

With the B-Modifieds being a relatively new division to Macon Speedway, a light schedule was put together for the 2015 season. As the race season reaches the mid part of summer a $50 bonus has been offered to the highest finishing B-mod when they opt to race with the Billingsley Towing Modifieds.

Billingsley Towing and Macon Speedway thought it would be a good to give to the B-Mod division especially since they don’t have any regular events scheduled for the next few weeks. So any legal B-Mod that would like to race will be eligible for the bonus. Macon Speedway asks that all B-Mod cars place the letter B on the driver’s side pillar or in the corner of the roof by the driver’s side to help officials distinguish the B-Mod cars in attendance.

The Billingsley Towing Modifieds race this Saturday Night July 25 with MOWA Sprints, Street Stocks, Sportsman, Hornets, and the Illinois Lightning Sprint Series.

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.

For more information, follow Macon Speedway online at, on Facebook ( and Twitter (@maconspeedway). It’s easy to join the Macon Speedway text service. Fans can text MSFANS to 74574 to receive fan information. Drivers text MSDRIVERS to 74574 to receive driver information. Message and date rates apply. Updates are also available by calling Macon Speedway at 217-764-3000.

Macon Speedway is located nine miles south of Decatur on U.S. 51, then 0.6 miles west on Andrews Street and south to 205 N. Wiles. Macon Speedway hosts racing every Saturday night, plus many weeknight specials.
