Five Buck Grandstand Admission On Tap This Saturday Night At Macon Speedway Event Presented By Sun Drop & Melling Performance
(Macon, IL) Only two weeks remain on the 2017 schedule at Macon Speedway and this Saturday, September 23, will likely be well attended. It's Five Buck Night, presented by Sun Drop and Melling Performance. In addition to $5 grandstand admission, fans will benefit from Sun Drop product giveaways and Melling Performance coolers, Koozies, Decals, and Pens handed out at the gates. On track, fans will see six divisions of racing and kids will enjoy CEFCU Kid's Club.
Macon Speedway held its first Five Buck night on this weekend, one season ago. It was announced just a week before the race and a huge turnout of fans were in attendance, the second biggest crowd of the year. The speedway held another, earlier this year, on May 6, and again the crowd was solid. The same can be expected this Saturday, with summer-like conditions, strong fields of cars expected, plus Sun Drop and Melling giveaways. It's a really great night to bring the whole family at a highly affordable price.
Headlining the show will be the Billingsley Elite Wash UMP Modified division. The point battle is a heated one at the top, as last year's champion, Curt Rhodes, leads the standings but by only a 22 point margin. That's a matter of 11 feature positions with two weeks of point racing left. The Taylorville, IL driver is trying to hold off Austin Lynn, of Mason City, IL. The young driver is racing in his first full season at Macon and has been really strong, winning three features and finishing in the top five 14 times out of 18 starts, matching Rhodes numbers. Jeff Graham is third in the standings, while Alan Crowder, and Danny Smith complete the top five.
It's a tight point battle in the UMP B-Mod class as well, with last year's champ, Tim Hancock, looking to repeat. Last season was a runaway for the Mt. Olive, IL driver, as Hancock won 16 out of 16 features. This season, competition has been a lot tighter, as Godfrey, IL's Cody Stillwell is only 16 points behind him, a matter of eight feature positions. Hancock has won 12 features to Stillwell's two but Stillwell has finished in the top ten of every feature this season, the difference in staying within striking distance. Jerry Thompson, Tim Riech, and Tom Riech round out the current top five.
Well, we've covered to tight point battles so far, but not the tightest. That would be in the UMP Sportsman class. In fact, it can't get any tighter. Illinois drivers, Danny Smith of Argenta and Timmy Dick of Monticello are tied at the top of the standings with 486 points each. There are two weeks left in the season and fans will have their eyes glued to the two drivers to see who can come out on top. Each driver has won two features and their other numbers nearly mirror each other as well. Scott Landers, Terry Myers, and Tim Bedinger round out the top five in points.
The Street Stock championship battle has been pretty close all season but the point leader, Brian Dasenbrock, of Decatur, IL does have a little breathing room entering the final two weeks. Dasenbrock holds a 48 point lead on Shawn Ziemer, of Boody, IL. Jason Scrimpsher, Garrett Lewis, and Jeremy Nichols complete the top five in points. Nichols has run just part time in the class but has claimed ten feature wins. Ziemer has taken one, while Dasenbrock is looking for his first of the season which could put an exclamation point on a championship.
The UMP Hornet class point championship is all but locked up, as Dustin Reed of Decatur, IL holds a 114 point lead on Cook Crawford. The most any driver can accumulate over the course of two events is 120, so Reed will likely lock it up this Saturday. Paul Peters, Marty Sullivan, and Carter Dart round out the top five in points.
Rounding out the classes in action this Saturday will be the Beach House Micros. The division has been great for the track this year, drawing large fields of cars just about every night they've been on track. In addition to the POWRi sanctioned shows, the track holds several unsanctioned shows that have seen Jeremy Camp claim three wins and Tyler Day and Tyler Duff claim one win each. Nearly 30 micros were on hand for the most recent show on Labor Day weekend.
Pit gates will open this Saturday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, drivers meeting at 5:45, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing will start at 7:00. Grandstand admission is $5, while kids 11 and under are free.

A Look Back At The 2017 Lincoln Speedway Season 4 Champions To Be Crowned At January Banquet
(Lincoln, IL) Lincoln Speedway, located in Lincoln, IL, had a highly successful 2017 season come to an end on September 1. The track, in its 14th season, completed 11 out of 12 scheduled events with great weather, much improved crowds, and top notch racing on the 1/4-mile. From Sprint cars to Hornets to a Summer Nationals event that set the record for biggest crowd at the track, the track had great racing from start to finish this year. This year's top point finishers will be honored during the January 20 banquet.
The UMP Pro Late Models competed in nine out of the eleven events this season at the track and Springfield, IL's Jake Little was the man to beat. Little started the season with three finishes of 2nd and one 12th place finish but starting with the June 23 show, he was lights out. Little won four of the last five races and finished second at the other. Those numbers were plenty good enough to claim the championship by 60 points over last year's champion, Roben Huffman. Cody Maguire had a strong season and finished third, while Brandon Eskew and Dustin Ingram rounded out the top five. In addition to Little's four wins, Myles Moos, Ryan Little, Guy Taylor, Matt Taylor, and AJ May were one-time winners.
79 different UMP Modified drivers were on track this season at Lincoln Speedway, including an astounding 40 for the Summer Nationals event. Much like previous seasons, the Modified class put on some of the best and most competitive racing, even on a few nights when the counts were a little low. Ashland, IL driver Brandon Roberts had a stellar season, winning four features and claiming ten top fives in 11 starts. Following Roberts to the championship were Austin Lynn, multi-time champion Brian Lynn, Ray Bollinger, and Mike Brooks. Roberts was joined in the wins department by Bollinger with 3 and Allen Weisser, Kenny Wallace, Mike Chasteen, Jr., and Rodney Standerfer with one each.
The POWRi Lucas Oil DII Midgets Presented By Nutech Seed had a pretty good point battle at the top all year long. Last year's champion, Tyler Vantoll, of Belleville, IL, was plagued with mechanical issues during portions of this year's slate. Taking advantage was Waterman, IL's Jack Routson. Routson came on strong during the season's second half, claiming two wins and seven top fives in ten starts. Routson took the track championship by 58 points over Vantoll, while Mitchell Davis, Robby McQuinn, and Andy Baugh rounded out the top five. Vantoll took four features, Routson and Gedd Ross two each, and Davis and McQuinn each claimed one feature.
Rounding out the regular classes at Lincoln Speedway was the UMP Hornet division. Springfield, IL's Mike Eskew claimed this year's championship, after finishing second one year ago. While Eskew didn't win a race this season, four top fives in six starts was enough to claim the championship by ten points over 2015 champion, Cook Crawford. Adam Webb, David Lauritson, and Shane Kelley were top five finishers. Three wins were claimed by Webb, while Kelley, Jeremy Reed, Kenny Butterfield, and Joe Reed each won one.
When it came to special events, two that stand out are the June 9 Arctic Cat All Star Circuit Of Champions event with Tony Stewart in action and the July 2 Summer Nationals Graue Chevrolet Showdown. Both events saw packed houses, especially the Summer Nationals event. The All Star Sprint race went caution free, flag-to-flag. The July 2 event had the biggest crowd in Lincoln Speedway history, as fans from all over filled the grandstands. The fairgrounds facility actually ran out of parking, as late arrivals had to park along the streets. The racing lived up to and surpassed expectations as the Summer National Late Models, Summit National Modifieds, and USAC Midgets all had great fields and awesome racing.
Work now begins for the Track Enterprises crew in preparing for the 2018 season and the work won't be easy, trying to top the excitement and great racing that was seen during this past campaign. Expect many of the same favorites plus some other twists and turns to up the excitement level event more.
Next on the Lincoln Speedway schedule will be the 2017 awards banquet which is set for Saturday, January 20 at the Lincoln American Legion. Doors will open at 6:00 that night with dinner at 7:00, and the awards ceremony beginning at 8:00. Registration will open in October with more details coming at that time.
Officials would also like to take this time to thank everyone who helped make the 2017 season a success. From the drivers to the teams, car owners, sponsors, and of course the officials and fans, thanks again for keeping racing alive and well at the Logan County Fairgrounds and Lincoln Speedway.
Lincoln Speedway is located at the Logan County Fairgrounds, in Lincoln, IL. The physical address is 1408 Short 11th St., Lincoln, IL 62656. Lincoln Speedway races a number of UMP classes as well as specials on a near bi-weekly schedule of Friday and Sunday evenings.

Holy cow I went to a sprint car race at QR and hardly ever had to cover my beer or food..awesome track!!😀 If this keeps up I might have to change shifts at work so I can be there every Sunday night like I used to be. Gotta say I haven't missed QR much this year and I have only been there 2 or 3 times.
Awesome race track Dust free and smooth surface. Good fast racing. Liked the improvements overall. Good job Quincy Raceways. 👍
Everything I'm hearing about the new owners I may have to try and come to a few races next season keep it up guys
Thanks for puting on a good show and we appreciate the changes so far, the track looks so much nicer!
TWO THUMBS UP GUYS ! Great job so far...Can't wait to see the many more improvements the place has needed for so long.
Thanks for taking a chance with the race track the track and the place is looking great
Just want to say that was the best Quincy track we have had. Nice job!
Thanks for running the Sprints earlier in the order. Was able to make it home to Troy, MO by 10:30.
Keep it up guys.
Track was badfast!
Thanks Jason and Robert for letting DK and I in to shoot your race. Had a great time and the added bonus of heading home early. Loved the track prep, as the sprinters looked like no-wingers throwing them into the corners.
My husband Dick Crane is a past racer of 35 years and Quincy Raceways being one of his favorite. He is retired from racing but we have become spectators. I've already heard good things about the condition of the track being better than it has in years. That is a plus and makes a good racing night for spectators and drivers. Keep up the good work.
I've been to a lot of different tracks this past year. I want to this was one of the smooth, clean, fast race track I have been too. Last week the track good, but this put a whole new standard to "good". Looking forward to next week.
Fantastic job, past promotors kept the track going & brought in some big shows but without "owning" the track they couldn't put alot of $$ into it. You guys have done great. Track prep was best I've seen in years. With such a great car count in Sprint cars, id say racers would support it on every other week basis in 2018? UMP late models and 360 sprints alternating weeks in 2018?
Bring back the Late models not just the crates and you will get more attendance. With Kevin doing the track as good as he does they will return
Thanks for having the sprint invaders .Hope you have them several times next year .I never heard anything but good from all the sprint racers .Thank you ,
Some of my fondest memories are at qr is a child i will never forget the feeling of setting in the seat of Gary Wilsons modified. He has and will always be a hero in my memories.
It is great to hear & witness all of the positive thoughts from the community!!🤗
Best racing surface i have ever seen at quincy Raceways and we raced there fo 20 yrs.
VERY VERY VERY IMPRESSED FROM THE LOOK OF THE STANDS TO THE TRACK!!!!
This is something that Kenny Wallace hit on. Tracks are spending too much money on the weekly show, and not enough on the big shows.
Look at Tri-State Speedway.
Nothing but specials, but the pack the place every time.
To all you people complaining about this event just fucking get over it and be happy that this event and track is running after not being around for the last handful of years. It's only going to get better and better as 2018 gets closer.
Why are they having this event against the mod mania event at tri city. makes no sense to compete against an area track that already has the cars . Now u decide them up and both tracks suffer
It would be cool to let Mods qualify 👍
Damn... I remember when this was a huge event.... :(
Tyler Nicely you need to go . We need some rain over here .
Deciding the car counts will hurt both tracks
They won't be dividing the car count.
I'll be attending to watch the last race
It's not fair to tri city to decide the car count. it's not right
