Lincoln Speedway Changes Hands

Twelve years after a dream of building a promoting a race track, race track owner/promoter Norm Horn is ready for days of relaxation and rest.  On Thursday, September 3, an agreement was reached between Horn and Macon’s Bob Sargent to turn full operation of Lincoln Speedway over to  Sargent’s Track Enterprises Inc.  The move will align Sargent with two tracks close in proximity, Macon Speedway & Lincoln Speedway.

Horn is excited to see the venue going to Track Enterprises.  He feels that Sargent is a good fit to take over the daily operations of Lincoln Speedway, one that he spent so much time in grooming and shaping into what it is today.

Horn stated, “Bob has some good people on his side, with his years of racing knowledge and the young blood that he has working for him now at Track Enterprises.  I feel like this is the best fit for the situation at hand as well as my wife Yvonne and I.  The time has come for us to truly step back, as we are ready to spend a lot more time with family and friends and do a little work on the farm.”

Ken Dobson, of CILTRAK promotions, who was involved in the promotion of Lincoln the last two seasons said, “I’m very pleased that Lincoln Speedway has landed in the capable hands of Track Enterprises.  I think it will be a positive thing for not only the racers and fans of Lincoln Speedway, but for racing in general in Central Illinois.”

Sargent’s Track Enterprises company is no stranger to auto racing, being involved with promoting since the mid 80’s.  Sargent started running Macon Speedway in the 1980’s and also has racing venues located in Indiana and Kentucky.  On top of that, the group runs yearly shows at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, Indiana State Fairgrounds, Nashville Tennessee, and the DuQuoin State Fair.

“The move to take over Lincoln Speedway will definitely put a lot more work on our guys but Lincoln is such a great place and I want to see it continue with success just as it has with Yvonne and Norm.  With Macon being a Saturday night track and Lincoln a Friday night track with a few Sunday’s, the two entities can be a great fit for us.”, stated Sargent.

Lincoln Speedway is located in Lincoln, IL at the Logan County Fairgrounds.  It is a 1/4-mile track which had UMP Pro Late Models, UMP Modifieds, Lightning Sprints, and Hornets as its core divisions in 2015.  The Summer Nationals Super Late Models, MOWA Sprint Cars, and POWRi Midgets and Micros are some of the touring series that visit the exciting dirt oval.

Lincoln Speedway has one more event remaining on the 2015-schedule, the Season Championships on Friday, September 11.  For breaking news and updates on 2016 campaign, visit and like the Facebook page at
