Racing And Fireworks On Tap For Friday Night At Lincoln Speedway

(Lincoln, IL) It will be a holiday weekend celebration of racing and fireworks this Friday night, July 3 at Lincoln Speedway. In addition to the first visit from open, national type Midgets in 2020, DIRTcar Pro Late Models, DIRTcar Modifieds, and Hornets will also be in action. A fireworks show will light the sky at the end of the show. Headlining the event will be the first visit for the national type, open Midgets. The show is being run similar to the Jacksonville Speedway summer showcase shows, giving Midget guys a chance to hit the track as the early season action has been limited for the class. A good number of Nutech Seed DII Midget drivers are also expected to compete, going for the bonus money that has been put up for the 20 guys who have raced so far in the class this season.

Bollinger Wins Second In-A-Row At Lincoln Speedway

(Lincoln, IL) For the third straight weekend, Lincoln Speedway was back at it for some great dirt track racing at the Logan County Fairgrounds, in Lincoln, IL. Five divisions were on track, headlined by 24 cars in the DIRTcar Modifieds. Carter Sinkhorn and Austin Lynn brought the 23-car Modified field to the green flag for the 20-lap feature event with Lynn racing into the early lead. Last week’s winner at Lincoln and Spoon River, Ray Bollinger looked fast early, running about one lane off the bottom. On lap five, Bollinger made his move to the outside and shot into the lead. A few laps later, Ken Schrader moved into the second spot and set his sights on Bollinger, but down the stretch it was easy to see that the Kewanee, IL driver was too fast for anyone else in the field.

305 Sprint Cars Again To Join Lincoln Speedway Regulars Friday

(Lincoln, IL) Lincoln Speedway, located at the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln, IL, is set to go green for the third straight week, this Friday, June 26. Typically an every other week track, speedway officials are running a good number of events in-a-row to make up for lost time in April and May. The first two events of the season have been highly successful with great racing in front of good crowds. Last weekend’s 305 Sprint Car turnout and racing encouraged officials to put them back on schedule for the upcoming week. Many drivers in the class are from Central Illinois, which makes Lincoln Speedway a great site for events. The DIRTcar Modified class has also seen two winners over the first two weeks. Donovan Lodge, of Andover, IL, won on opening night, while Kewanee, IL’s Ray Bollinger was hooked up and claimed the impressive win last Friday. Lodge finished …
