Schedule Change – Final Night Of Racing Sept 11th.

Norm and Yvonne Horn have elected to retire from operation of Lincoln Speedway after 12 dedicated years and start a new chapter in their lives without being committed to operating a race track weekly. In looking at the remaining schedule, we have decided to make the following changes to our schedule:

Sept 4th – We will not be racing Sept 4th.
Sept 11th – This will be the Season Championships and the final night of racing at Lincoln Speedway in 2015.
October 9th – The MOWA/POWRi event scheduled for this night will not be held at Lincoln Speedway. MOWA and POWRi are working on re-structuring that weekend and MOWA/POWRi will have announcements in the coming days for those series.

With Norm and Yvonne no longer planning to be active in managing Lincoln Speedway, CILTRAK has decided to not promote the Speedway in 2016. We simply can’t manage it without Norm and Yvonne looking after the place daily and taking care of the races on Friday. Without them, we would have never been able to operate Lincoln from over an hour away.

We are confident that alternate promoters will be found and we will work hard to make sure that Lincoln is left in great hands. Norm has had several active discussions with promoters for the 2016 season and we are confident that 2016 will be a great season at Lincoln Speedway.

We have enjoyed working with Norm and Yvonne for two years at Lincoln and wish them nothing but happiness as they take a step back. Nobody has been more committed to the success of a local race track than Norm and Yvonne Horn.

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.
