Hi, what are you looking for?


Macon SpeedwayMacon,IL —George Mueller Distributing will be the sponsor for this week’s Lite Beer Twin 50’s. The evening will consist of two 50 lap features, one for the UMP Late Model division and the other for the UMP Modified division. Macon speedway is proud to be giving both divisions an increase in their weekly feature payout. The Late Models will be racing back to the checkered for $1,500 to win, while the UMP Modifieds will battle for $750 to win. The Lite Beer Twin 50’s will also include our other weekly divisions; Touchstone Energy Sportsman, Street Stocks and Pro and Amateur Hornets.

Don’t forget one lucky Modified driver will once again be drawn to choose his or her Best Fan in the Stands. If you are the fan that they draw that night you will win $300 due to two weeks of rollovers! The Lite Beer Twin 50’s will also be one of the races in the Midwest Big Ten Series which is a series that was designed to thank our loyal Late Model drivers for their patronage to our racing facility. The Midwest Big Ten Series has 10 races hosted at three different tracks, including Morgan County Speedway, Jacksonville, IL and Shepp’s Speedway, Alexander, IL. At the end of the series all points will be tallied and the drivers will share $10,000 in prize money depending on their point status. The next Midwest Big Ten Series race at Macon Speedway will be held on July 4 for the 95Q Firecracker 40’s. Steve Sheppard Jr leads the Big Ten race by holding off second runner up and 2008 Late Model track Champion Kyle Logue by a mere 8 points!
