POWRi Midget SPEEDWEEK Coming To Lincoln Speedway Sunday

Thursday, Jul 30 176

Lincoln Speedway is set to open the gates back up for a Sunday night of racing entertainment, on August 2nd. So far, all events have been held on Fridays this year but the next two special events, August 2nd and August 16th, are Sunday night races. The rescheduled SPEEDWEEK starts with action this Friday in Jacksonville, then to Macon Saturday, and wraps up at Lincoln Speedway on Sunday.

The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets have run eleven events so far this season with New Berlin, IL’s Jake Neuman leading the standings. Neuman has yet to win but has six top five finishes. Bixby, OK’s Cannon McIntosh is second in points with two wins, while Ace McCarthy, Michael Kofoid, and Zach Daum complete the top five. The top ten in POWRi standings is represented by six different states, IL, OK, CA, IN, NE, and MO.

The POWRi Engler Machine and Tool 600cc Outlaw Micro League will be running all three nights of SPEEDWEEK, as well. The series has had just six events so far this season, with Tulsa, OK’s Harley Hollan on top of the standings with one win. Joe B. Miller, a veteran open wheeler, is second in points with three wins in six starts. Chase Porter, Bryant Wiedeman, and Scotty Milan complete the top five.

As for the regular divisions, the DIRTcar Pro Late Models will lead the way with Springfield, IL’s Jake Little leading the points. Brandon Eskew is just two points back, in the second spot. The two drivers have each won two feature events. Roben Huffman is third in points, while Braden Bilger and Colby Sheppard complete the top five. Dakota Ewing and Jose Parga have also won features during the 2020 season.

Mason City, IL driver Austin Lynn leads the points in the DIRTcar Modified class over his father and many time track champion, Brian Lynn. However, the elder is coming off of his first feature win of the year at the last event. Just 14 points separate the two. Brian Diveley, Brandon Roberts, and Ray Bollinger complete the top five in standings.

Making their first visit of the season will be the DIRTcar Pro Mods. The division is a full-time class at Macon Speedway but only runs once or twice at Lincoln Speedway during the course of a season. This will be a great opportunity for drivers to get some track time before the DIRTcar Fall Nationals in October.

Rounding out the DIRTcar classes will be the Hornets. The division has been very consistent with great fields all year long. Dallas Strauch, of East Peoria, IL, leads the points by only four over Brady Reed. Erik Vanapeldoorn, Mike Foster, and Jimmy Dutlinger complete the top five. 40 different Hornet drivers have raced at the track this year with Strauch, Brady Reed, Vanapeldoorn, David Lauritson, and Joe Reed claiming wins.

Pit gates open Sunday at 3:00, grandstands at 5:00, local division pill draw ends at 5:50, hotlaps are at 6:00, and racing is at 7:00. Grandstand admission is $18, while kids 11 and under are free.
