Beiler wins Midwest Big Ten Series street stocks on Bud Light Ladies Night

Bud Light


MACON – Bobby Beiler finally got the timing right in the Midwest Big Ten Series street stocks feature Saturday at Macon Speedway during Bud Light Ladies Night.

Beiler, of Blue Mound, rolled to the win and grabbed the $500 first-place prize in the second race of the 10-event street stocks campaign. Nevertheless, it was something else that made it the most special night for Beiler.

“This win is for my dad,’’ Beiler said. “He lives an hour from here. Whenever he’s been here, I’d never won.’’

In a pair of Billingsley Towing modified features, Curt Rhodes of Taylorville took the victory in the feature from the rained out program last weekend. Later in the night, David Crawley Jr., of Decatur,  grabbed the win in the regularly scheduled modified feature race.

In other action, Doug Nevill scored the victory in the sportsman division. Jeremy Reed rolled to the win in outlaw hornets. Derek Peters charged to the checkered flag in stock hornets. Terry Reed of Decatur won the B-mod feature.

Jenny Kramer won the Bud Light Ladies Night race while representing Rocco’s on Bud Light Ladies Night. Austin Moore took the victory in the high school hornets division.

On May 10, Teacher’s Appreciation Night, presented by The Teacher’s Lounge, will feature Big Ten Series late models. Billingsley Towing modifieds, street stocks and sportsman will also race while outlaw hornets and stock hornets run double features to make up for a rainout on April 26.
