Lincoln Speedway’s Brandt Season Finale Coming Up Friday

Five Buck Admission To Fill Stands

                (Lincoln, IL) The outstanding 2017 season is about to come to an end at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL.  A 12 event, special event schedule was put together in the offseason and the action has been great all summer long.  With only one rainout, May 19, fans have seen a great season of racing action, as crowds have filled the stands on numerous occasions.  That should be the case this coming Friday, September 1, as grandstand admission will be just $5 for the Brandt Season Finale.

                Six divisions of racing are on tap for Friday night’s event, including two classes of Midwest Big Ten Series competitors.  Headlining them will be the Big Ten Pro Late Models.  Springfield, IL driver, Jake Little leads the points and has been outstanding on the series this year with four wins in seven starts.  Two wins have come at Lincoln, while the other ones came at Jacksonville and Macon.  This Friday’s event is one of three remaining events and Jake Little has a 56 point lead on Ryan Little.  Both will have plenty of fans in the stands this coming Friday for Brandt night, which is also a sponsor of their cars.

                The Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks are also scheduled for action.  Lovington, IL’s Jeremy Nichols is on an amazing run this season, winning race-after-race in a number of different cars.  Overall in Big Ten competition, Nichols has won five out of seven and that includes four in-a-row.  The Big Ten Street Stocks ran at Lincoln on Sunday, August 13 and had an awesome field of cars and a great race.  Friday’s event pays $500 to the winner and $75 to start.

                The UMP Modifieds are also back in action and will have two features on the evening.  The first race of the night will be the makeup feature from the rained out August 18 event.  The starting lineup from that event will be used, as the race was just about to start when rain started to fall.  A full additional program will take place including qualifying, heats, and a feature for the Modifieds.  Ashland, IL driver, Brandon Roberts will look to claim the championship, and has a solid chance of doing so, leading by 80 in the standings on Austin Lynn.

                The UMP Sportsman will be making their one and only appearance at the track this season, as part of a Lincoln-Macon doubleheader weekend.  The Sportsman had a great show 30 minutes to the southwest at the Springfield mile, two weeks ago, and look to carry that momentum into this weekend.  The Sportsman will be racing for a $400 top prize on Friday night as well as Saturday night at Macon Speedway.

                The POWRi Lucas Oil DII Midgets by Nutech Seed are back at the home base for the series Friday night.  Leading the local points is Waterman, IL driver Jack Routson.  Routson is up by 52 on Belleville, IL’s Tyler Vantoll.  Routson has also recently taken the lead in the national standings from Vantoll but is up by just 36 points.

                Rounding out Friday’s on track action will be the UMP Hornets.  Springfield, IL driver Mike Eskew holds just a four point lead on Lincoln, IL’s Cook Crawford.  Eskew finished second in the standings at the track last year, while Crawford was the champion in 2015.

                Pit gates will open Friday at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, the drivers meeting will take place around 5:45, pill draw will end at 6:00 when hotlaps begin, and racing will take the green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission for the event is just $5, while kids 11 and under are free.
