Curt Rhodes (10) will be among the Taylorville drivers who will be at a 5:30 p.m. meet-and-greet before a night of racing at the Christian County Agricultural Fair on Wednesday.

TAYLORVILLE — Three divisions of racing will return to the Christian County Agricultural Fair for the fifth straight year on Wednesday.

The 2014 event, which was the first in decades, was very successful, with Kaleb Wood taking the win in a field of 20 Street Stocks, Jeremy Nichols claiming the Sportsman feature, and Jeremy Reed winning the Hornet A-Main.

The last two years rain threatened both events, but Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks, Sportsman and Hornets all took the track and completed their events.

Last year it was Timmy Dick besting a 13-car field of Sportsman. Jeremy Nichols took the top prize in the Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks. In Hornet competition, Marty Sullivan claimed the victory as rainfall started.

Pits open at 4 p.m., grandstands at 5, hotlaps at 6:20, with racing beginning at 7.

In addition, there will be a pre-race autograph meet-and-greet behind the main grandstands at 5:30. More than 10 drivers have announced their intentions to sign autographs and meet with fans before the races begin. Among those are many Taylorville drivers who will be in competition during the night. Fans will be able to meet and chat with Sportsman drivers Scott Landers, Tim Bedinger, Brad Bedinger, Mitchel Ringler, Stephan Bedinger, Dennis Vander Meersch, Phil Moreland, and Ty Nation. In addition, Modified drivers Jeff Graham, Dante Brown, and Curt Rhodes will also be there, representing the Taylorville area.
