MACON, Ill. – A driver will make history on Saturday when he steps into victory lane at legendary Macon Speedway for the win in the first ever Pro Late Model feature at the fifth-mile high banked dirt oval. Macon Speedway is proud to announce the addition of Pro Late Models to the program on Sept. 13 with a $500 to win feature race plus a two-night point fund in conjunction with the program the previous night at Lincoln (Ill.) Speedway. With the big paycheck and the possibility of even more money with the two-night doubleheader, Macon Speedway expects a high number of crate late models to arrive at the legendary fifth-mile high banked oval for a fabulous night of racing.
Macon Speedway is happy to open its legendary fifth-mile high banked dirt oval for the first time to the pro late models. UMP national points will also be up for grabs.
