Season Opener Now Thursday, May 9 with FloRacing Night in America

(Lincoln, IL) Showers and thunderstorms moved into Central Illinois early Friday morning, forcing the second rainout to start the 2024 season at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL. With the April 26 cancelation, the season opener will now be the biggest race of the season, Thursday, May 9.

The April 26 program is the second straight rainout to start the season, as the April 5 opener was also a wash. Friday’s action was set to include the opener for the Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series in addition to DIRTcar Pro Late Models, Modifieds, MARA Midgets, and Street Stocks.

Next up is the Castrol FloRacing Night in America presented by Kubota on Thursday, May 9. The Graue Chevrolet Showdown will feature a $20,000 top prize for Super Late Models as part of Illinois SpeedWeek that involves Spoon River Speedway Wednesday, Lincoln Thursday, Farmer City Friday, and Fairbury Speedway Saturday. The Lincoln event will also include DIRTcar Modifieds in a race paying $2,000 to win.
