                The Ed Cain Hornet Challenge, which will pay $1,000 to win Friday night at Lincoln as well as $1,000 to win at Macon Speedway on Saturday, should see a strong field of front wheel drives.  The first two years of the event has seen great racing with some stout cars.  In addition to the much higher purse, lap money, and bonuses will be paid out.  The competitor entry form is available on lincolnspeedwayil.com or maconracing.com.

                The Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Models are also on the docket.  They were originally scheduled to race last Sunday at the track but rain pushed the event to this Friday night.  Last year’s Big Ten champion, Jake Little, of Springfield, IL, currently leads the standings, winning the events at Macon and Jacksonville.  Guy Taylor, also of Springfield, IL, won the Lincoln opener but missed the Jacksonville event, relegating him to fifth in points.  Cody Maguire, Rudy Zaragoza, and Kyle VanDorn are also in the top five.
