MACON — The final night of Pro Late Models racing of the season was an exciting one at Macon Speedway, and a good one for Springfield's Jake Little.
Dakota Ewing busted out early to the lead, but Little — working the bottom of the track — moved his way to the front and got the pass for the lead. Ewing couldn't rebound enough to contend for the win. For Little, the checkered flag locked up the Midwest Big Ten Series points championship for the Pro Late Models.
Ewing, however, won his first track championship in what was a grueling season.
While his father watched from the stands, Rodney Standerfer raced solidly and strong to go from fourth, to second, to the lead position to win the Modifieds feature.
Earlier in the night, Tim Hancock Sr. moved by Rob Timmons to take the lead and drive away with the Pro Modified feature race. Hancock's lock on the track championship will be finalized next week.
Charleston's Josh Griffith won at Macon Speedway for the first time after 15 laps in the Street Stocks race.
Jacksonville's Trevin Littleton won the Micro Sprint feature, Adam Webb won the Hornets race and, in a special attraction, Princeton's Justin Rutledge won the the Vintage Racing Series of Illinois feature in a 1968 Mustang. Decatur's James Landis took second while racing in a 1972 Javelin.
