Castrol FloRacing Night in America


Thornton Jr. Tops Wild Castrol® FloRacing Night in America Macon Opener

Miniseries Invades Eldora Speedway on June 5

MACON, Ill. (May 28, 2024) — Taking the lead after a turn one melee on the 38th circuit that left race-long leader, Bobby Pierce spun, Ricky Thornton Jr. paced the final 13 laps to win Tuesday night’s Castrol® FloRacing Night in America presented by Kubota opener at Macon (Ill.) Speedway.

Thornton Jr. collected $20,000 for his fourth-career miniseries win.

“Honestly I didn’t mean to get into Bobby (Pierce) there and turn him around,” Thornton Jr. said. “I got a good run down the front straightaway and I thought for sure he’d see me under him and just lift and cross me over, but I think he was already too committed at that point. Obviously it sucks for him. You never want to take a guy out of the win especially, but especially Bobby.

“It was a pretty wild night. The track was racy but there was chaos happening everywhere it seemed. Big shoutout to Anthony (Burroughs), DJ (Williams) and (Justin) Tharp for working hard to give me another great car tonight.”

In a 50-lap feature that was plagued by a dozen cautions, Bobby Pierce paced the first 37 laps from the outside-front-row before being forced to the back of the pack after drawing the lap 38 caution. He rebounded to finish sixth.

Jason Feger, Hudson O’Neal, Myles Moos, and Tyler Erb completed the Top-5 finishers on the rough-and-tumble night at the 1/5-mile oval.

Castrol® FloRacing Night in America presented by Kubota continues the 2024 season at Eldora (Ohio) Speedway with a complete $20,000-to-win / $1,000-to-start program on Wednesday, June 5.

The event serves as a stand-alone lead-in to the 30th Dirt Late Model Dream weekend which spans June 6 – 8 and culminates with a $100,030-to-win finale on Saturday, June 8.

The pit gate opens at 11 a.m. ET with the grandstand gate opening at 2 p.m. The driver’s meeting is at 5:00 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing action to follow.

The tech line in the pits opens at 12 p.m. ET.
