National Midgets Set To Race Lincoln Speedway Friday Night

(Lincoln, IL) The quick and nimble National Midgets are set to fly around Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL, this coming Friday night, May 7. Originally not on the schedule, the Midgets were added to the show to compliment the POWRi National Midget show coming to Macon Speedway on Saturday. Five other divisions will also be in action on the fourth night of the 2021 racing season.

For the National Midgets, this will be one of just two visits at the track this season. The other comes on Thursday, June 17 as part of POWRi Illinois Midget Speed Week. Last season, Sam Johnson, of St. Peters, MO claimed a feature win in an Open Midget race, while Buddy Kofoid claimed the POWRi win in August. A good number of drivers are excited to get on track this Friday night.

Another class making just two appearances this season will be in action Friday as well, as the DIRTcar Weddle Performance Engines Sportsman will be on track. The division has run two races already this season at Macon Speedway with Lovington, IL’s Jeremy Nichols taking both victories in the Rudy Zaragoza Street Stock car. Scott Landers, Jim Farley, III, Rick Roedel, and Dennis Vander Meersch are in the top five in Macon points. The division also runs at Fairbury Speedway and opened up last weekend with Tommy Duncan taking the victory over Austin Friedman, Tyler Roth, Anthony Craven, and Lyndon Whitfill.

The DIRTcar Pro Late Models have had two great shows at the track already this season, boasting full fields both nights. Jose Parga, of New Berlin, IL claimed both wins and leads the standings heading into the night. Former track champion and driving veteran, Roben Huffman, is second in the standings, while Cody Maguire, Blaise Baker, and Colby Sheppard round out the top five.

Kewanee, IL’s Ray Bollinger is off to a great start in the DIRTcar Modified class at the track, leading the points by 14 markers over Tommy Sheppard, Jr. Brian Lynn, Allen Weisser, and Carter Sinkhorn complete the top five in points.

The Simplot Grower Solutions DII Midgets will be running a combined event with the USAC/IMRA Speed2 Midgets, meaning more cars and extra pay. Mark McMahill, of Peoria, IL, is the Lincoln point leader, after taking both feature wins so far this year. Will Armitage, Dave Baugh, Daltyn England, and John Heitzman are top five in points.

Rounding out Friday’s racing will be the DIRTcar Hornets. Kenny Butterfield, of Kingston Mines, IL, leads the points by eight over Erik Vanapeldoorn. Allan Harris, Jay Mariuzza, and Jeremy Hancock are in the top five. The Hornet races have been highly entertaining so far this season with great racing and good car counts all three nights.

Pit gates open Friday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps begin at 6:00, and racing will begin at 7:00. Grandstand admission is $18, while kids 11 and under are free. Tickets and pit passes will be available at the track on raceday.

Big Ten Street Stocks To Race Friday At Lincoln Speedway

Fans To Enjoy Dollar Dogs & $2 Beer Specials

(Lincoln, IL) This Friday night April 30, Lincoln Speedway, located at the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln, IL will be hosting a five-division race program featuring the season opener for the Midwest Big Ten Street Stock Series. Fans in attendance will also enjoy great eats and adult beverages on Dollar Dog and $2 Beer night.

The Midwest Big Ten Street Stock Series event will be the first of the 2021 season for the tour. After losing the 2020 season due to the pandemic, the series was brought back this year with a ten-race schedule for Street Stocks in addition to schedules for Pro Late Models and Super Late Models. Big Ten Street Stock features pay at least $500 to win, based on at least 16 cars.

The popular series will be entering its seventh season of racing at tracks like Lincoln Speedway, Macon Speedway, Jacksonville Speedway, and Taylorville Speedway. Previous champions include Terry Reed and Jeremy Nichols. Reed, of Cerro Gordo, IL, claimed championships in 2014, 2015, and 2019, while Nichols, of Lovington, IL, has claimed championships in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

The DIRTcar Pro Late Models will be back this Friday night after having an outstanding turnout two weeks ago. That event, which was also a Big Ten race, saw Jose Parga claim the victory over teammate Dakota Ewing. Jake Little, Roben Huffman, and Braden Johnson completed the top five at the April 16th event.

Over the first two events of the season, 27 different DIRTcar Modified competitors have raced at Lincoln Speedway. Ray Bollinger claimed the win at the April 9th opener while fellow standout driver, Allen Weisser, won on April 16th. Tommy Sheppard, Jr., Brandon Roberts, and Brandon Bollinger have been knocking on the door of their first wins of the season and will be ones to watch Friday night.

The Simplot DII Midgets had an exciting show two weeks ago, as Springfield, IL driver, Chase McDermand took the Simplot Front Row Challenge to start at the back of the feature. McDermand made it all the way through the field to finish second, just missing the $300 bonus money. Peoria, IL driver Mark McMahill won the race, carrying over momentum from his championship 2020 season. The Simplot Front Row Challenge bonus money will be $400 on Friday night.

The DIRTcar Hornets have had two outstanding races at Lincoln Speedway, going into week three. Kenny Butterfield, of Kingston Mines, IL, and Erik Vanapeldoorn, of Clinton, IL, are tied for the championship lead, each claiming one feature win. Jay Mariuzza, Allan Harris, and Mike Foster are others that have been just outside of victory lane looking in.

In addition to five exciting racing divisions, fans will be treated to $1 hot dogs and $2 beers, while supplies last. The Taft Concession Stand and El Zarape Taco Truck will also be on hand.

Pits will open Friday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing at 7:00. Grandstand admission is $15, while kids 11 and under are free. Tickets will be available at the gate on raceday.

Sprint Cars & Big Ten Pro Late Models To Headline Friday At Lincoln Speedway

(Lincoln, IL) After an outstanding season opener last Friday night, Lincoln Speedway is set to do it once again this Friday, April 16 as five divisions are ready to go. Headlining the evening will be the 305 Sprint Cars and Midwest Big Ten Pro Late Models.

The Winged 305 Sprint Cars will be racing for the first of three appearances this season at the semi banked dirt ¼-mile oval. In the three appearances last season, the drivers put on exciting shows with Weldon, IL’s Garrett Duff, Lincoln, IL’s Max Pozsgai, and Greenwood, IN’s Bradley Galedrige claiming the wins. Jeff Wilke, Tyler Duff, Ben Wagoner, and Jeff Tuxhorn are others who had strong runs one year ago.

The DIRTcar Pro Late Models will be making their first appearance in 2021 at the track. The opening race will be a special one for the talented drivers, as it’s also the opening night for the Midwest Big Ten Pro Late Model Series. The event will pay $600 to win and $100 to start in addition to DIRTcar national points, track points, and Big 10 points. At the end of the 10 race Big 10 schedule, special trophies and a point fund are distributed to the top finishers.

The DIRTcar Modifieds are back this week for their second night of action. Opening night, last Friday, saw over 20 cars take the green flag in a star studded field. Ray Bollinger, from Kewanee, IL, leads the track standings after claiming last week’s win. Rick Conoyer, Tommy Sheppard, Jr., Brandon Roberts, and Chris Morefield are top five point contenders after one night. Perennial favorites, Austin and Brian Lynn, had bad luck on opening night and will be looking to make up a lot of ground Friday.

The DII Midgets are back for another season of racing at the track with a new title sponsor, Simplot Grower Solutions. Last year saw a new champion atop the points, Mark McMahill from Peoria, IL. Teenage driver, Will Armitage, was second in points, while yearly favorite, Andy Baugh, Tyler Roth, and Kelli Harter took top five positions in points. Friday’s race will be the season opener for the Simplot DII Midget class.

Much like the Modifieds, the Hornets already have one race under their belts and it was a thriller. The battle at the front last week was worth the price of admission. Kingston Mines, IL driver, Kenneth Butterfield leads the points going into week #2, while Erik Vanepeldoorn is second. Vanapeldoorn had a strong run but ended the night with a disastrous barrel roll following the checkered flag. Josh Star, Jay Mariuzza, and Michael McKay round out the top five in points.

Pit gates open Friday at 4:00 PM, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps begin at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00. Grandstand admission is $15 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.
