MACON, Ill. – For the second straight season, heavy rains have forced the cancellation of POWRi’s Illinois Speed Week event at Macon Speedway.
The Saturday, June 15 program had midgets, micros, Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models, and Sportsman cars all on tap.
One race remains on the Speed Week schedule, Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Speedway.
The next event for Macon Speedway will be the Firecracker 40s presented by Dynagraphics and 95Q on Saturday, June 22. Forty-lap events will be run for the Decatur Building Trades Big Ten Pro Late Models as well as the topless BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds.
Both events will pay extra prize money.
Rounding out the classes in action will be the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods, Archer’s Alley Street Stocks, Sportsman, Hornets, and Micros.
For the POWRi Midgets, it’s been a tough Speedweek, as the series has only completed one of its first four Speedweek events.
Belle-Clair, Jacksonville, and Macon have all been hit by weather, while Fayette County completed their race on Thursday night.
The Sunday, June 16 event at Lincoln Speedway is still scheduled to go on as of Saturday morning. More updates on that event will come Saturday evening.
Logan Seavey is the current Illinois Speed Week point leader after winning Thursday night’s Fayette County event. He also won a make-up feature at Jacksonville on Friday, though that event was not counted toward the Illinois Speed Week championship chase.
