Lincoln Speedway Opening Day Moved to Sunday, April 10th

Lincoln Speedway

The 2022-racing season is now set to begin this coming Sunday, April 10th at Lincoln Speedway, located at the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln, IL. Originally scheduled for this Friday, the weather forecast has forced speedway officials to move the event to a day that has a much more favorable forecast, featuring sunshine and temps near 70 degrees.

Six divisions of racing action will be racing in the opener, headlined by the first ever Midwest Big Ten Series Modified event. In addition to the DIRTcar Modifieds, DIRTcar Pro Late Models, DIRTcar Sportsman, DIRTcar Street Stocks, Simplot DII Midgets, and DIRTcar Hornets will be racing.

“With Friday’s forecast showing a mix of rain and snow and high temps in the low 40’s, we knew that Friday’s event wasn’t likely to happen. Fortunately, Sunday is looking great for fans to get out and enjoy a great day at the track,” stated Lincoln Speedway promoter Adam Mackey.

The new season of racing should be a great one at the ¼-mile dirt track facility with a good number of DIRTcar weekly racing events. The speedway is also hosting a $22,022 to win Castrol FloRacing Night In America Super Late Model event on Thursday, May 12 in addition to the annual DIRTcar Summer Nationals special on Sunday, July 3. The track is also again home to the DIRTcar Fall Nationals 2022.

Times will be a little earlier this Sunday than a normal event, with pits opening at 2:00 PM, grandstands at 4:00 PM, hotlaps at 5:00 PM, and racing at 6:00 PM. Grandstand admission will be $15 for adults, while kids 11 and under are free.
