MACON SPEEDWAY CANCELED FOR SAT SEPT 5th

The ILSS race this Sat Night Sept 5th at Macon Speedway has been canceled due to a projected low car count. Talked to some of our members and they were not sure which race they were going to support so for the sake of Macon Speedway and the ILSS it is sad but this race has ben canceled. Special thanks to Bob Sargent and the entire staff at Macon Speedway for allowing the ILSS to race at Macon the last couple of years. It is sad guys would not support the ILSS in one of the best facilities in the midwest for our type cars.

Archdale and Smith take Peoria A-Mains

The ILSS cars had their make up feature form June 13th rescheduled for Sat Aug 22nd at Peoria Speedway  and the weather was perfect . The racing surface was one of the best we have raced on all year smooth and lightning fast. Austin Archdale of Brimfield took his pole position to the front and lead all 12 laps to take the win. Brent Burrows was 2nd and Rookie Brandon Smith was 3rd . The regular program for the ILSS saw Austin Archdale and Brandon Smith take the 8 lap heat races. With Brandon drawing the 0 pill the 2nd Feature had a heads up start. With Austin on the pole and Brandon on the outside of row 1 Austin would take the lead at the green with Brandon running a close 2nd and Brent 3rd and Brad Funk 4th. A caution would come out on the white flag lap for the stalled car of John Heitzman in turn 3. On the restart with one lap to go Austin would take the filed to turn 1 and at the exit of turn 2 grazed a mine tire and Brandon slipped by on the inside and Brent on the out side. They would run 3 wide down the back stretch and Brandon would squeeze out the win with Austin 2nd and Brent 3rd and Brad Funk in 4th.Brandon is only the 2nd driver to ever win an A – Main in their rookie season. Great job and great racing . It was an awesome night of racing with a throwed back comfortable  night with all having a great time . Jason and Brandon did one heck of a job and a perfect track.
