BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Quickly transforming into a marquee event on the POWRi calendar, the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro Sprint League are gearing up for the 2020 edition of Speed Weekend.

Teams will be tested across three nights at three unique tracks as they travel through the state of Illinois.

It begins July 31 at Jacksonville Speedway. The quarter-mile dirt track is located on the Morgan County Fairgrounds in Jacksonville, Ill. This will be the first time that any POWRi series has visited the historic quarter-mile track this year.

On Aug. 1 both POWRi divisions visit Macon Speedway. The last time the POWRi midget division visited the fifth-mile track was on Sept. 14, 2019 when Logan Seavey came out on top. The 2019 event also saw Chad Elliot score a win with the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro Sprint League.

The final night of Speed Weekend on Aug. 2 will take place at Lincoln Speedway. The tight quarter-mile semi-banked dirt oval has seen many victors, the most recent winner being Tyler Courtney on Aug. 16, 2019. The last time the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro Sprint League visited Lincoln, Ill., was in 2017 and was won by Nick Howard. Races scheduled for 2018 and 2019 were rained out.
