Hancock Scores A Pair Of Macon Modified Wins


MACON, Ill. – Tim Hancock Sr. picked up wins in two modified divisions on Saturday night at Macon Speedway.

Starting on the pole position of the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified feature and the BillingsleyRewards.com Modified feature, Hancock steered his No. 0 machine through the turns and avoided contact as best he could, as well as the lapped traffic.

During the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified feature, Rob Timmons was primed to take the lead, but lapped traffic changed those events as Timmons bounced off a lapped car and towards the concrete wall. That allowed Hancock to grab the lead and stay ahead of Timmons, who was puffing smoke for the duration of the race. From midway on, Hancock reigned supreme.

With Hancock finishing the Pro Modified feature, a race between his next adventure allowed him to refuel and just rest up. He made no changes to the race car and just trusted himself and his car to keep him out of trouble. Little did he know that it was also putting him in victory lane.

Gliding ahead of Rodney Standerfer and Alan Crowder, Hancock used the bottom groove to pull ahead and through and while incidents were going on behind him, Hancock stayed the course and locked up the double checkered flag.

Other winners Saturday included Nick Macklin in the Archer’s Alley Street Stock feature, Trevin Littleton in the Micro Sprint main event, Aaron Heck in the Pro Late Model division, Dennis Vandermeersch in the Sportsman class and Erik Vanapeldoorn in the Hornets.
