Summer Nationals

Thank you!

We at Macon Speedway and Lincoln Speedway want to thank everyone who attended our private test sessions last Saturday and Sunday. We truly hope everyone enjoyed themselves. We also want to thank everyone for all of the positive comments and support. The racers, crew, and families, despite these trying and new times, were very complimentary and supportive of our process. And, last but not least, thanks to all of the governmental agencies and authorities for listening to our ideas and suggesting guidelines. For the other race track that tried so hard to get the practices closed down, we just don’t have words for you and feel bad for everyone you tried to hurt. Everyone have a great and safe week. 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 Schedule Includes DIRTcar Fall Nationals!

Over the weekend, we were thrilled to announce that we are the home of the 2020 DIRTcar Fall Nationals, October 1-3, 2020. This is a huge event for Lincoln Speedway as well as all the surrounding community!   We know our drivers are pumped up about it and we feel that Lincoln Speedway is a great place for it. From Hornets all the way up to Super Late Models, Lincoln Speedway is the perfect size track to fit all classes. Not too big, not too small, just right and centrally located for all involved.   We are still working on finalizing the details as far as daily schedules, purses, etc. Those should be coming out soon.   The full 2020 schedule for Lincoln Speedway is also out. While it’s still tentative and subject to change, we don’t foresee any major changes to dates, etc.
