WEYANT Tops Speedway Motors A-Main @ Sycamore

Korey Weyant of Springfield took home the top spot in the Speedway Motors A-Main on Sat night at the Sycamore Speedway. Weyant took his pole starting spot to the front and ran away from the rest of the field in  a green to checkers finish. Weyant’s 7x Mahan Special was definately hooked up as he built a half lap lead over Dave Baugh of Bloomington at the checkers. Brent Burrows of Lewistown who had fast time came in 3rd spot with Havana’s Gedd Ross in 4th place. The big track at Sycamore on Sat. night was smooth and fast as the winged cars were turning laps in the 14 second bracket. A packed house of 1500 fans enjoyed a night of great racing at the historis facility just East of Sycamore. The format of 2 heat races were ran with the 1st heat lined up by times with the fast time on the pole and the 2nd heat inverted with the cars running lined up by  their qualifying times. Each heat was like the old days of kart racing with points given by finish for each heat and the total for the 2 heats was the line up order for the Speedway Motors A-Main event. With Brent setting fast time he started on the pole of heat 1 and Dave Baugh on the outside. Dave would move to the front and lead all 8 laps with Korey Weyant 2nd Gedd Ross 3rd and Brent Burrows 4th. Rookie Robby McQuinn would lose a motor on lap 4 and retire for the night. Heat 2 inverted would find Jake Sollenberger and Brent Burrows in the front row. Brent would lead until lap 2 when Korey Weyant slipped by in turn 4 and go on to the win. Brent would finish 2nd with Dave Baugh 3rd and Gedd in 4th.

Next ILSS race Fri Night Sept 5th a non wing event at Lincoln Speedway. This race has been added to the 2014 schedule. Also added are races at Lincoln on Sept 26th and Oct 3rd. Our last point race for 2014 is onSat Night Oct 4th at Peoria Speedway for the season championship event.

Mother Nature Tops ILSS Again

Mother Nature was the big winner on Fri Night at the Jacksonville Speedway. The ILSS suffered its 3rd straight rain out with hot laps complete and only 2 street stock heats ran and the sky opened up. Heavy rain forced the race to be canceled and a make up date TBA  With just 11 cars signed in to do battle on the 1/4 mi high banked dirt  .Hopefully tonight Sat the series will get a race in at Sycamore Speedway.

Jacksonville & Sycamore up Next

The ILSS will hopefully have a 2 race week end coming up if mother nature will just cooperate. On Fri night Aug 29th will be a winged show at the Jacksonville Raceway and then move up to the Sycamore Speedway for another winged show on Sat night Aug 30th. With some rainouts the last few weeks hopefully the series can get a week end of racing in. Gedd Ross of Havana leads Austin Archdale of Brimfield by 2 points in a heated points race with 10 races left in the 2014 season. The points are very close in the top 10 places and with 2 shows this week end things could change a lot for the drivers shooting for a good point season. Hope 2 see all cars for this 2 day week end of racing.
