POWRi at Macon 9-25 Plus Lite Beer Twin 50's Rain Date


Staff member
(Macon, IL) The POWRi presented by Speedway Motors National Midget and 600cc Outlaw Micro Sprint Series makes their final visit of the 2010 season on Saturday September 25th at Macon Speedway in Macon, IL. The evening will commence with the 20 lap 600cc Micro Sprint feature that was to be made up from the August event. Rain had taken over the speedway just before the Micro's were to take the track. Following the makeup feature a full program of both National Midgets and Micros will take place. Also racing Saturday night will be the UMP Modifieds, Street Stocks and Pro and Amateur Hornets.

Brad Loyet of Sunset Hills, MO will take a healthy lead in the midget point standings heading into the event with Austin Brown, Brad Kuhn, Zach Daum and Daniel Adler rounding out the top five. Loyet seeks his second POWRi Championship of his career after claiming the series title in 2006. The 600cc Micro Sprint battle is still hot with Andrew Felker of Carl Junction, MO holding a slim point lead over hometown favorite Jeremy Camp of nearby Blue Mound, IL. Both competitors are seeking their first POWRi Championship of their careers. Both features will help determine who will wear the POWRi crown with just one more event remaining on the schedule after the Macon events. Davey Crawley Jr holds a lead over Mark Tullis by 114 points but with two nights of points for the UMP Modifieds still on the schedule that race is still unsettled. Larry Russell in his X7 Street Stock leads Mike Pickering by 32 points, so the next two races will be crucial for Larry to hold off Mike for the Champion title in the UMP division. The tightest race of all will be in the Pro Hornet division as Fred Reed Jr leads Sam McCoy by a mere 4 points. It will all come down to the last few weeks of racing for these divisions to see who will be crowned champion for 2010.
Tickets for Saturday night’s racing event will be $15 for adults and children 12 & under will be admitted for free. Pit passes will be $30 for the event. Don’t miss your last chance of 2010 to see the POWRi Midgets & Micros at Macon Speedway this Saturday night!!
