When it comes to the on-track action, Braden Johnson, of Taylorville, IL, leads the DIRTcar Pro Late Models into action, holding just an eight-point lead over Blaise Baker, of Clinton, IL.

Many-time champion, Brian Lynn, of Mason City, IL, is back to his old ways this year, running strong and leading the DIRTcar Modified standings. Allen Weisser has won three of the four features he’s competed in and is second in points, while Brandon Roberts, Austin Lynn, and Mike Brooks round out the top five.

The MARA Midgets presented by AgVenture/Wehmeyer Seed have had a great first season at the track with nearly 20 cars at every event. Mark McMahill leads the standings by 36 over Daltyn England, both former champions in the track’s DII Midget class. Patrick Bruns, another former champion, is third in points, while Jace Sparks and Adam Taylor complete the top five.

Lewistown, IL’s Rick DeFord is atop the track’s Hornet division points, leading by twelve over Billy Mason. Bridget Fulton, Kenny Butterfield, and Jimmy Dutlinger round out the top five in points.

Rounding out Sunday’s action will be the DIRTcar Sportsman and Street Stock divisions. The Sportsman will be racing for just the third time this season at the track, with Tommy Duncan and Landen Miller claiming the two feature wins. The Street Stocks will also be making their third appearance of the year with Zane Reitz claiming both victories so far this season.
