MACON — Three weeks ago, Chris Dick scored a $2,000 payday taking the Kerbystrong 100 win in Pro Late Models at Macon Speedway by running the bottom of the track. Saturday was the same story.

The bottom brought his car to life and he sped past Jose Parga in the closing laps to take the lead away. Parga staged a rally and regained the lead, but with the white flag waving, Dick stayed true to the bottom and a lapped car slowed Parga to the point that Dick pulled out ahead and ran away with the win.

Thanks to the donations as part of the Diane Bennett Memorial — Bennett was the lead scorer for more than 30 years at Macon Speedway — the Pro Late Model feature paid $2,000-to-win.

Money kept growing in the pool for the Modifieds division through the announcement of the event all the way up to qualifying time — $2,150 ended up being the winner's portion of the purse in the division. That was good news to Mike Harrison. The many-time Summer Nationals champion made the trip from Highland to claim the check after taking control of the race two laps into the 20-lap A-Main feature.

Another big money race was the Street Stocks feature, with $850 up for grabs in a Midwest Big Ten Series race that would be won by Terry Reed. Reed's control of the race came from a front row starting spot after a heat race victory.

The Pro Modifieds race had several accidents that claimed cars and angered racers who would have to exit the track with damaged or mangled machines. Tim Hancock Sr., who was involved in a wreck or two during the 15 laps, crossed the finish line first.

Lapped traffic helped Decatur's Adam Webb grab hold of the checkered flag in the Hornets, and Trevin Littleton jumped out to a big lead in the Micro Sprint feature and won.

In the special "Race'em & Wreck'em" feature, Blue Mound's Brandon Diulio was crowned the winner of the eight-lap race where every lap needed to involve contact with another car. He also took the win during the intermission exhibition where the drivers needed to race around the track and do an extra spin around the tractor tire on the backstretch, which had a flagpole inside of it.
