Here's what I want to say about last night more than anything. What you saw in the Super Late Model division last night were seven racers that are truly devoted to the late model class at their home track. No, it's not Gordy's home track, but we are happy to count him as one of ours and the Westlings have to drive an awful long ways to get here.
There were plenty of options to race late models last night. We knew after talking to racers from across Illinois and MIssouri early in the week that it didn't matter what we paid, we were probably going to have those 7-10 cars. The racers knew it too and they showed up... some of them having to thrash and spend money to fix stuff from the week before when they would have ordinarily taken the night off. The track needed them last night and they came because they knew we needed them.
In a sense it doesn't matter if we had 7 or 70 because those are the cars you fans want to watch battling for the win... and any one of those 7 could have won it. Thank you to each and every one of them. Great win for Ricky.... and some tremendous racing behind him. Thank you guys for putting on a show. And thanks for your devotion to the late model class at Quincy Raceways.
I'll make a post later to give you an opportunity to gripe about running out of parking, the show dragging a bit, throwing a tad too much water on the front stretch to keep from dusting you out when the winged sprints were going to stir it up etc... But for now... thanks to the Late Model guys... and to all the racers in every class.... and thank you to everyone that came out last night to watch. ...
And on June 11th when we race Late Models next, we are going to pay a $500 bonus to the top finisher out of the seven late models that were here last night as a thank you to them. Remind me guys.
Great event last night. I thoroughly enjoyed the sprints. Delays, track prep etc are to be expected. Keep up the great work!
Thank you for explaining. We haven't been there for 3 years now due to getting up at 3am on Mondays so i was wondering where all the late models had went. Was bummed to see just 3 cars in the other class. Then we heard you explain they had the 'Dega big one a couple of weeks ago. That makes sense. Those 3 guys put on a helleva show at the end! I was even shocked by how well pushing the sprint off went. with only 3 or 4 trucks it went quick and smooth. Really enjoyed it last night.
Great show awesome racing in ever class , Kenny give yourself a pat on the back you deserve it on how last night turned out. Full stands was so nice to see , just glad I don't work out there cuz Mondays sucked cleaning the trash up. Lol Please keep on keeping Quincy alive Kenny , we need you more then you know and believing in Quincy raceways. Thank you for all you do in dirt track racing and keeping sport alive in Quincy and Jacksonville. Thank you....
We drove an hour and 35 minutes to watch, it was our first time at the track and we were not disappointed! It was a good show and things ran very smoothly! Will definitely be back!!!
Thanks Kenny for having us run. It was some awesome 2 and 3 wide with all 7. The crowd loves the class! As far as everything else it is what it is. I spent a lot of the night in the stands and people seemed pretty happy. It did take a while to get out but everyone waited till the last car rolled off the track. That says something!
Wow how I remember Quincy Race Way,both my brother's raced our dad the crew chief, remember the days ,hours they'd spend in the garage just so they could be ready for Saturday night glad to here it's still going🚘🚗
Just enough for a fam good race i say. Props to you guys for having and keeping them when knowing the count would prolly be low..
Was awesome to see the stands so full! That explains the parking. No worries or bitchin here. Awesome nite!
Great show. Gordy and Perry was an awesome race for second.
Keep that class alive! The number of fans will decline once they get dropped. I'd rather watch 7 than none.
Street stock feature was one of the best finishes. 3 guys still put on a show!
You guys do an awesome job week in and week out. Last night was Awesome regardless of the late model count.
Show was alright but 60 cars give me a break not worth 20 dollars but that's fine now u can fix the score with my extra 5 because the show was a stretch for even 15
Great racing as usual but what's it going to take to keep the 127 late model off the track? He caused damage to cars in the heat race then piled up nearly the entire field in the feature. And then he chased after a guy on a 4 wheeler like a madman.....this guy has anger management issues that is going to get someone hurt one of these days!!
Maybe some should watch videos of the race and crash then make comments. As for class my hat is off the 127 late model as he was attacked by the 24 late model and his crew, and then the guy on the four wheeler threw a bottle/can thru the right side of the car and hit the driver in the head. The 127 late model never got out of his car or acted inappropriately. As for the 24 late model he was black flagged for his actions as well as his crews. Sportsmanship needs to be re-evaluated for the 24 late model and his crew. There were a lot of cars, adults, children, and sponsors there last night, and what was shown after that wreck was nothing more than complete disrespect of themselves, the other driver/team, and fans.
That track was so bad . There were so many cars flip because of the track.
Dam Mike gets blamed even when he is not even at the track get your facts straight before you accuse someone of something they didn't do
Ignorance should not be overlooked, when his anger causes a death will that be overlooked too?????
Next racing event is scheduled for Saturday June 3rd, Kids Bicycle Race at Intermission. Kids ages 5-12 will be divided up and race on the frontstretch. UMP Modifieds, UMP Pro Late Models, E-Mods, UMP Hornets and 6-Shooters will be on hand. Regular admission prices. More info to come. Sunday's race June 4th has been cancelled. ...
Would of been a great night if people didn't sit in the stands for 6 hours and pay to get in the pits to not even see the class they cane for race. Unbelievable.
When I asked why it was fair to not let the street stock and pro 4s run the gentleman told do I have enough money to bail him out of jail. WOW is all I have to say. That's why this track is struggling. A little bit of advice.... NOT EVERYONE ONLY COMES TO SEE MINI SPRINTS
Mini sprints bring money into the track but they are boring as hell and the track needs alot of help it's terrible
Yea pits where packed but the track was rough as can be. Caused me to get my car tore up. But plan o. Coming back and trying again.
If someone had a leaf spring car here tonight, they would be in business! Rough rough rough! Hope it cuts cut, and packed.
In his first race of 2017,Joey Moughan takes the checkers at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois at the finish of the MOWA Sprint Car Series Race there on Friday night. Congratulations to Joey and his crew on a very popular win !!! ...
