Breaking News: Next race this Sunday Night May 27th, Gary Cook Jr Memorial
Spoon River Speedway 35th season opener Saturday night had fans on the edge of their seats. With a large crowd on hand to honor the late Bud Welker and Kevin Bills along with a nice car count in all divisions to begin the 2018 race season, the racers put on some exciting racing on the high banked oval. The track was also collecting money to Strike out Cancer for Hannah. $4000 was collected from the fans, drivers and track to help out this little girl.
The 35th season opener is set for Saturday April 28th featuring the Zane's Automotive Service DirtCar Modifieds, the Perkins Seed House DirtCar Pro Late Models, the Fulton Farm Service USAC/IMRA SpeeD2 Midgets, the Farmington Locker E-Mods and the Bartonville Express Lube DirtCar Hornets.

Hope to see everyone on opening night and throughout the year. Remember ONLY $10 a ticket on Regular Race Nights!! See you at the Spoon.
Spoon River Speedway is proud to announce that we will be running into October with two of our divisions. On Oct 19th and 20th we will hold the 1st Monster Mash Nationals at Spoon River Speedway for the Hornets and E-Mods paying the Hornets Saturday night 100 lap feature winning $2500 in the 30 car main event. The E-Mods 50 lap feature winner will pocket $2500 Saturday night in the 30 car main event. Feature car count could be change by number of entries up or down, but I believe this should bring in a large car count in both divisions to end the season. The Hornets first 70 laps we will count yellow flag laps with the last 30 only counting green flag laps. The E-Mods first 20 laps we will count yellow flag laps with the last 30 only counting green flag laps.
