Vintage Racing Plus Five Divisions Friday Night At Lincoln Speedway

Vintage Racing Of Illinois To Headline Friday Night Lincoln Speedway Show

(Lincoln, IL) Just one week removed from a record setting night, Lincoln Speedway is ready to go again this Friday, May 20 for a full six division program. Vintage Racing of Illinois will be making their only visit to the track this season and will be joined by five other classes of racing.

Vintage Racing of Illinois has made several appearances at Lincoln Speedway, always putting on an exciting show with several drivers going for the win. The classic racecars bring back racing memories from years gone by. The series competes at multiple racetracks across the state.

Jose Parga, last year’s Lincoln Speedway point champion, leads this year’s Pro Late Model points by just four over 2020 champion, Brandon Eskew. Neither driver has found victory lane but both have been battling toward the front of the field. Blaise Baker, Rockett Bennett, and Cody Maguire round out the top five in standings entering Friday’s event. Dakota Ewing and Chase Osterhoff claimed the two feature wins.

56 different DIRTcar Modified drivers have already been on track this season and the point battle at the top is a heated one. Edinburg, IL’s Jared Thomas is off to a great start with three top ten finishes and is tied with Ashland, IL’s Brandon Roberts for the point lead. Former NASCAR racer, Kenny Wallace, is third in points just two markers behind. Last year’s champion, Ray Bollinger, and Allen Weisser complete the top five in points.

2021 champion, Mark McMahill leads this year’s Simplot DII Midget standings by just four over Springfield, IL’s Daltyn England. McMahill claimed one feature victory, while Chuck Walker claimed the other. Tyler Roth, Patruck Bruns, and Thomas Harris are among the top five in points. This weekend’s Simplot Front Row Challenge bonus is worth $200.

Chatham, IL’s Allan Harris and Brownstown, IL’s Billy Mason are locked in a tie for the point lead in the DIRTcar Hornet division. Harris claimed the win on April 22, while he finished third at the opener. Third place point man, Jeremy Reed, is third in points, while David Lauritson and Nick Johnson complete the top five.

Rounding out the action will be the DIRTcar Street Stocks. Cerro Gordo, IL’s Terry Reed and Blue Mound, IL’s Bobby Beiler have each claimed feature wins this season at the track.
