MACON, Ill. – Andrew Felker made the move to the lead midway through the 30-lap Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series event and held on for his first POWRi victory of the year on Saturday night.
Tanner Thorson was in charge for the first 14 laps before Felker made the move for the lead with lapped traffic in the way. Both drivers were sticking to the top of the fifth-mile, but Felker took over with a slide job.
Tucker Klaasmeyer came home in second, followed by Austin Brown, Justin Peck and Terry Babb.
Before the feature started there was some unexpected excitement as Tyler Thomas flipped his midget after the parade lap while warming up his tires.
In the Speedway Motors POWRi 600cc Outlaw Micro Series, top groove racing prevailed for Frank Galusha. The Lincoln, Neb., native was followed by both Matthew and Nicholas Howard throughout the feature. Galusha made some of his best moves when the back of the pack was being caught up by the leaders and he managed to put some breathing room between him and the Howards.
Macon Speedway’s newest division debuted Saturday night with the Division II Midgets, formerly known as the Illinois Lightning Sprint Series, with 20 cars. Patrick Bruns rode the high side to the checkered flag in the 20-lap feature event.
The lone Macon Speedway stock car division was the Street Stock class and Nick Justice earned his second-straight class victory.
