Track Now Preparing For Huge June Events
(Lincoln, IL) For the first time in 2017, Mother Nature rained on Lincoln Speedway’s parade, as the May 19 Super Late Model Shootout for the Midwest Big Ten Super Late Models has been canceled. UMP Modifieds, Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks, POWRi DII Midgets Presented By Nutech Seed, and UMP Hornets were also scheduled. Several dates are being considered for possibly rescheduling the event.
With the May 19 rainout, track officials are now preparing for two huge events early during the month of June. The first comes up on Sunday, June 4 as the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets will be running their championship night of Speedweek at the track. Joining the quick and nimble racers will be the POWRi Speedway Motors National Micros, POWRi Lucas Oil DII Midgets presented by Nutech Seed, UMP Pro Late Models, and UMP Modifieds. It will be the first of three Sunday shows at the speedway this Summer.
Just five days later on Friday, June 9, the 1/4-mile oval will be back open for arguably the most anticipated race of the year, as the Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit Of Champion Sprint Cars are in town for the second season in-a-row. This year, making his return to sprint car racing in Central Illinois, will be two-time NASCAR Cup champion, Tony Stewart. Stewart will be racing at Lincoln on Friday, as well as Macon Speedway on Saturday, June 10.
Tickets for both events will be available at the gate on raceday only. Grandstands will open on June 4 and June 9 at 4:00 PM each day. Full information on the events will be available on the website at www.lincolnspeedwayil.com or by calling the Track Enterprises office at 217-764-3200.
