Farmer City Practice Night Canceled; Focus Shifts to Exciting Illini 100 Weekend

With heavy rain moving into Farmer City Wednesday night and continuing throughout the day on Thursday, according to Precision Weather Service, World of Outlaws, Xtreme Outlaw and track officials have agreed to cancel Thursday’s Illini 100 practice night.

The decision comes after consulting Wayne Mahar of Precision Weather Service. With rain Wednesday and Thursday, but sunny weather Friday and Saturday, officials wanted to preserve the facility and track, so fans and drivers are given the best conditions for the Illini 100 weekend at Farmer City Raceway.

With this move, the focus now shifts to Friday and Saturday’s racing events, which will feature the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Models, Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota and MARS Modifieds.

The weekend will also feature the return of reigning Xtreme Outlaw champion Jade Avedisian as she joins the Series for its debut at Farmer City Raceway.
