MACON, Ill. – Track Enterprises has announced its 2016 special event schedule, which features the ARCA Racing Series, USAC Silver Series, ARCA/CRA Super Series, Southern Super Series and the DIRTcar Summer Nationals.

The first event of the season is a second year stop at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville with the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards on Saturday, April 9.  Last year, the Southern Super Series late models joined them for a Saturday night double header.  This year, action will begin on Friday, April 8, for a two-day show with the addition of the ARCA/CRA Super Series.

Next up will be the annual Hoosier Hundred for the USAC Silver Crown Series on Thursday, May 26 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Ind. Joining the USAC Silver Crown Series will be the UMP Modifieds for a $2,000 to win special event.

In early July, Track Enterprises’ officials turn their attention to two of the tracks that they promote on a weekly basis, Lincoln and Macon Speedways in Central Illinois.  On Sunday, July 3, the DIRTcar Summer Nationals, known to many as the Hell Tour, will be at the Lincoln Speedway quarter-mile.  The series will then visit Macon Speedway on Thursday, July 7 for the Herald & Review 100.

On Friday, July 22, it’s back on the road to Indy, as the ARCA Racing Series makes another stop at Lucas Oil Raceway.  The ARCA/CRA Super Series will be on tap as well. Travis Braden stunned onlookers by winning the ARCA Racing Series event at Lucas Oil Raceway last year.

Arguably the biggest event on the Track Enterprises season takes place on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 20-21 at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.  It’s the annual stop for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and the USAC Silver Crown Series. The UMP Sportsman are back on for another season of racing.

The final big event has a little change for 2016, as the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds races have each been moved up a day to Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3-4.  The change means that  the ARCA event will be run on a Sunday night instead of Monday afternoon. Joining ARCA will be the USAC Silver Crown Series and UMP Modifieds.
