MACON — Admission for women will be just $5 on Saturday at Macon Speedway, which will host seven divisions of racing as the season enters its final month.
In addition, a "gold rush" for kids 11 and under will be held at intermission. Hundreds of dollars in coins being poured on the front stretch. Kids will be split into a few different age groups and allowed to go on the track and collect the coins.
One of the top stories last week was the car count in the B-Mods, which had 27 drivers on hand. Heading into this week, Godfrey driver Cody Stilwell is up by 42 points on Troy’s Jerry Thompson. Each driver has claimed two feature wins this season. Tom Riech, Kevin Crowder and Tim Hancock Sr. complete the top five. The big winner this year has been Hancock, of Mt. Olive, who has won eight features but has missed three races. Hancock sits fifth in points.
In the Pro Late Model division, a last-lap pass gave Decatur's Dakota Ewing his sixth win. Guy Taylor came up a close second after leading the most laps. In the standings, Taylor leads Macon driver Donny Koehler by 130. Ewing, Maguire and Jake Little round out the top five.
The Modifieds had a clean, fast-paced race last week that was won by Curt Rhodes, who held off his son Zach in a heated battle. Tommy Sheppard Jr. leads the points race, followed by Danny Smith, Curt Rhodes, Zach Rhodes, and Tim Hancock.
One of the big surprises last week was the strong field of Street Stocks that showed up. What wasn’t a surprise was who ended up in victory lane — Lovington's Jeremy Nichols. In the points race, Shawn Ziemer leads Justin Crowell, Jerit Murphy, Larry Russell Jr. and Terry Reed.
The Hornets, Sportsmen and Micros will race as well.
