Day Finds A Way At Macon
MACON, Ill. – When leader Aaron Andruskevitch fell out of the race with mechanical trouble, Tyler Day took over the lead and held on for the win in the Beach House Mini-Sprints feature race during Bob Brady Auto Mall Raminator Night at Macon Speedway Saturday.
Day stayed to the high side and held off Brad McDaniel for the victory as the winged open wheel cars ran their first feature race of the season on the legendary fifth-mile high banked oval. Paul Day was third with John Plotner and Luke Verardi fifth.
Andruskevitch is third in the POWRi national outlaw micro points standings. The Beach House Mini-Sprint division drew a 19-car field for the thrilling 20-lap feature race.
Nick Macklin won the Sportsman feature to return to victory lane for the second straight race.
“It’s awesome to be back here,’’ he said.
Bobby Beiler made it two wins in back to back nights. After taking the checkered flag at Jacksonville Speedway the previous night, Beiler scored the feature win in Street Stocks by staying in front of brothers Terry Reed and Gene Reed.
His rivals “showed me the top side was there,’’ Beiler said.
Brock Bauman took the victory in the Billingsley Towing Modifieds feature while Ethan Schnapp took the victory in B-Mods.
John Bright Jr. raced to the win in Outlaw Hornets. Garth Luka, of Blue Mound, was the winner in the Stock Hornets division.
The feature races came after a monster truck exhibition by Raminator, the Champaign based team.
