The health and safety of you and your family should come first. We will have details out shortly about our planned private test sessions coming Friday and Saturday. Thanks, Management

2020 Racing Season on Hold at Lincoln Speedway

(Lincoln, IL) Like many things in our lives, the 2020 racing season is currently on hold at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL.  The season opener was set for this Friday night, April 10 but drivers, teams, and fans will have to wait a little longer, as officials wait out the COVID-19 restrictions that have swept the nation.
