Crawley Tunes Up With Macon Victory
MACON, Ill. — It was a solid night of racing at Macon Speedway even though the clouds looked unfavorable for any dirt track racing on Saturday.
In the final tune-up for the Springfield Mile Sportsman Nationals, Dave Crawley Jr. took the win. It was a close finish but he had the checkered flag in hand at the end of the 15 laps.
Chad Evans took the top spot in the Billingsley Towing Modifieds as he held off Cory Daugherty and Guy Taylor for the win, his first of the season.
In the Street Stock feature, Terry Reed took the lead in the early goings on a miscue by multi-time feature winner Bobby Beiler and refused to lose as Nick Justice closed in but finished second.
An appearance by the Beach House Mini Sprints helped bring Aaron Andruskevitch into victory lane. The Riverton native blew away the competition during the long series of green flag laps.
B.J. Deal made it two-in-a-row in the B-Mods as the Brownstown native was locked in from the bottom side of the speedway.
In the Outlaw Hornets, Adam Webb, the defending National Hornet Champion, won over Thad Gee. Garth Luka once again dominated in the Stock Hornet class.
In the Bud Light Ladies Night event, Laurel Phipps and Brianna Livingston were the top two drivers to come out of the five-car, five-lap race to advance to the Ladies Night Championship in September. The ladies racing were representing Woody’s Bar.
