SPOON SETS SIGHTS FOR 2021

We would like to Thank All the fans that supported Spoon in this messed up year of 2020. Thanks to all of you and our great drivers we had another great season at the Spoon even though it was a short one. We also have to thanks all our workers at the track that give up their Saturday nights to help us have a fast and smooth race program every night. We now set our sights on 2021 and hope to have another full season of spectacular racing action with a few more special events.

Back again in 2021 will be the UMP Modifieds, UMP Pro Late Models, USAC/IMRA SpeeD2 Midget, E/B Modifieds and the UMP Hornets.

Play day will be Sundays April 11th and 18th. Any safe race car is welcome.

We have a few Headline events scheduled for 2021

                                                                                                            

The Greg Gilmore Memorial presents The Renegades of Dirt Modified Series on Opening Night April 24th for $3000 to win. (Possible $5000) This will be the first time this series has been at Spoon let alone in Illinois. Then on Memorial Day weekend (Sunday May 30th) we will have the Gary Cook Jr Memorial with the Modifieds running for $2064 to win. Also after a few years absence the MARS Super Late Models Series will be on hand for $5000 to win that night.

June 24th has been given our date for the Summer Nationals Hell Tour with the Supers running for $5000 to win and Modifieds for $1500 to win. September looks to be exciting again starting on Sunday Sept 5th with the 31st Modified Plow Boy Nationals paying out to the Modifieds the biggest purse in Spoons history, $11,000 to win and $1000 to start the main event. After getting rained out last year the 34thTom Knowles Memorial will return on Saturday night Sept 11th with the MOWA 410 Sprints and the POWRI Lucas Oil National Midgets.
