MACON -- The 72nd season of Macon Speedway stock car racing came to a finish Saturday night and six division champions were decided in the final races. One division needed the race to finish before a champion could be crowned while other divisions already had their champions figured out before the final lap was scored.
The Sportsman division saw a bittersweet moment on lap three when Timmy Dick, who came into the night with a six-point advantage on Danny Smith, broke down and came into the infield as the car would not refire. He could only watch as Danny Smith finished the race in the eighth position. Dick finished 10th, which would keep him in the points lead and he was crowned the champion from the infield next to his broken Sportsman. The final Sportsman checkered flag went to a former multi-time division champion in Dennis Vandermeersch.
Curt Rhodes went back-to-back in the Billingsley Elite Wash Modifieds with the championship. He also claimed the night's feature race.
Tim Hancock wrapped up the B-Modified championship, Tommy Sheppard Jr won the Pro Late Model Championship, Brian Dasenbrock won the Street Stocks and Eldon Hemken won the 4-cylinder Hornet feature.
