One of the busiest motorsports weekends in Central Illinois takes the first green flag of the weekend tonight at Lincoln Speedway as we motor into the Illinois State Fair Racing Weekend. On tap at the 1/4 mile semi-banked speed plant are the 410 Non-Winged Sprint Cars known for tremendous 2 and 3 wide racing and spectacular wheel stands. Round 9 of the Midwest Big Ten Series UMP Pro Crate Late Models brings in a tight point chase for the series title as well as a tight track championship fight.

Great Racing In Recent Weeks At Lincoln Speedway

The last couple of shows at Lincoln Speedway have been top notch. Last night, we had 18 of the best Pro Late Model drivers and 18 of the best Modified drivers. The show was great! While we know the real fast cars don’t care a lot for the dice roll for an invert, last night proved why it can be a good thing. First, Ray Bollinger, started from sixth because of the invert and quickly sliced and diced his way through the field to the impressive victory in the Modifieds. The battle for second was a fun one to watch for many laps but Bollinger easily had them covered. Then in the Pro Lates, the veteran Guy Taylor led lap after lap as the battles throughout the field was fun to watch. Dakota Ewing, who started fifth, methodically raced his way toward the front. He got hooked up on the …
