Raminator and Non-Wing Sprints Return This Friday July 17th
This Friday July 17th is night of smashing and sliding as Raminator Monster Truck takes care of the smashing and the WAR East Non-Wing Sprint Cars handle the sliding.
The day gets started with a display at Lincoln Chrysler Dodge at 11:00 where you can see Raminator up close, then at 4:00, a police escort brings it to Lincoln Speedway to join in our night’s action. Don’t miss the car crushing, wheel standing power of Raminator at Lincoln Speedway this Friday Night.
The racing action will pack a punch Friday night as well with the return of the WAR East non-wing sprints racing for $1,000 to win along with the Midwest Technical Institute Modifeds, Springfield Iron and Metal Pro Late Models, Nutech Lightning Sprints and Hornets.
Hot laps at 6:30. Racing at 7:00.

Pro Modified Rules and Payout For Friday April 10th
1. 3-Link 602 Crates per UMP Pro Mod rules = 2,400 pounds.
2. 4- Bar 602 Crates (spoon/Peoria) = 2,500 pounds, with 50 pounds bolted in front of the radiator.
3. We don’t anticipate any 365 open motors but for this week they will race with a 2 barrel at the same weights as above depending on suspension.
No spoilers. Grooving and siping allowed for a period of time. Modified A and H tires only.
Please note that we are geographically between the 3-link UMP cars to our South and the 4-bar cars to our North. Long term we want to move people toward the 3-link UMP car so we need those cars to be competitive. We are trying to strike a fair balance between the two cars. Jeff Schmidt our lead technical official has spent a lot of time thinking through how to even the playing field. This is where we are going to start. If we see one or the other has an advantage based on rules instead of talent, we will adjust accordingly in future weeks.
As we have said, we have a partial schedule right now for B-Mods. If we see a healthy field developing we will add nights with a long-term view of making the B-Mod a part of our weekly program.
Payout will be $250 to win/$40 to start. We will post the full payout on our website shortly.
