2016 POWRi Illinois SPEED Week

2016 POWRi Illinois SPEED Week

Belleville, IL – The 4th Annual Illinois SPEED Week is shaping up to be one of the largest events for 2016 with a world-wide driver presence set to tackle five straight days of racing. All five nights will feature POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series action, paired with both the POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series and the POWRi/ILLINI Lucas Oil Division II Midget Series. The grueling weeks kicks off on Wednesday, June 8th at the high-banked Belle-Clair Speedway. Thursday, teams will head north to Quincy Raceways, before Friday’s show at Jacksonville Speedway. Saturday, the divisions will invade Macon Speedway and for the fifth and final night, Illinois SPEED Week will conclude at Lincoln Speedway. The five nights of racing will be the ultimate test of endurance for drivers and crews, equipment maintenance, and an excellent display of driver talents.

Previous Illinois SPEED Week Champions for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series include Christopher Bell (2013, 2015 tie), Tyler Thomas (2014), and Darren Hagen (2015 tie). In the POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series, Cale Thomas took the inaugural Illinois SPEED Week in 2013, while Frank Flud was the champion in 2014. Joe B. Miller was the 2015 Illinois SPEED Week Champion for the micros. Newly added in their freshmen year, the POWRi/ILLINI Lucas Oil Division II Midget Series will be the third division on the roster for Illinois SPEED Week.
