Breaking News: Rail Splitter Nationals This Saturday Night Sept 23rd
In what might be a momentum changing night, AJ May, driver of the #A9 entry in the Spoon River Speedway Perkins Seed House Pro Late Model Division, charged to a big win Saturday ahead of three of the other Top 5 Pro Late Models in the nation, and served notice that he is ready for the stretch run of the season as he tries to defend his 2016 National Championship. May pulled way late in an entertaining 20 lap feature to pick up his first win in a few months at Spoon River, and was guardedly optimistic afterwards in Victory Lane.
Canton native Chris Windom returned to his hometown with the PowRi WAR Wingless Sprint Car Series Saturday night, and earned a win at Spoon River Speedway in front of many family members and friends. Windom’s sprint car and champ dirt car exploits take him all over the country, and he even participated in the NASCAR Truck Series race last Wednesday night on the dirt at Eldora Speedway in Ohio. After winning the WAR Sprinters race Friday in Champaign, the traveling group invaded Spoon River Saturday night. Racing on a track perfectly prepared by Brad and Morey Denney despite a huge early morning deluge of rain Saturday, the Sprints lauded the race track, one team saying “we weren’t great, but that awesome track was!” on their social media page the next day. Windom found it to his liking early, dominating the first of two WAR heats to set the tone for the night. Heat 2 went to talented Landon Simon.
This Saturday Night July 22nd will see the POWI WARS 410 Non-Winged Sprint cars invade Spoon River Speedway for the first time.
