(Lincoln, IL) The time has come for the 2019 Brandt Season Finale at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL and fans will be treated to a great night of entertainment for just $5. In addition to the very affordable ticket prices Friday, August 30, $5 food/drink combos will be sold in the concession stand. Six divisions of racing are set to go green with season and point championship to be decided.
Headlining the night’s action will be the DIRTcar Pro Late Models. In what once was a tight point battle at the top, Springfield, IL’s Jake Little now has a 52 point lead entering the final night. Little will lock up the championship by starting the feature. Denny Woodworth is second in points, while Roben Huffman, Cody Maguire, and Colby Sheppard complete the top five.
Last year, the DIRTcar Modified point battle went right down to the wire as the father-son duo of Brian and Austin Lynn had just a couple of points separating them. This year, the two are first and second again but the separation is 48 points. Without any issues, Mason City’s Brian Lynn should be on his way to yet another Lincoln Speedway championship. Tommy Sheppard, Mike Brooks, and Ray Bollinger are currently top five point contenders.
Andy Baugh, of Mason City, IL, has already clinched this year’s Nutech Seed DII Midget championship, winning six of eight features and having a 94 point lead. Mark McMahill is second in the standings, while Jeff Sparks is just a couple of points back in third. Daltyn England and Patrick Ryan complete the top five in standings.
Pekin, IL’s Danny Oates will be the 2019 champion in the DIRTcar Hornet class, having a 62 point lead going into Friday’s action. The most points a driver can garner is 60 as it’s 50 for a feature win and 10 for showup points. Eric Vanapeldoorn is second in points, while Carter Dart, Brady Reed, and Cook Crawford complete the top five.
The Midwest Big Ten Series Street Stocks will be back for a second time this season, racing for $500 to win and $10 per lap led in their 15-lap event. Cerro Gordo, IL’s Terry Reed leads the Big Ten points by just 4 over Darrell Dick. Rudy Zaragoza is third in the standings with Wes Biesenthal and Nick Macklin fourth and fifth.
Rounding out the racing program will be the DIRTcar Sportsman class. The division will be running under Macon and Fairbury rules with drivers from both tracks expected to attend. It’s the only appearance for the Sportsman at the track this season.
