Well it was a long weekend for most of us. things kicked off at Shady Hill Speedway on Friday night with the Fire Cracker 50 for the mods. The IMODs were in action and had a 20 car field split up in 3 heats. The winners were Chris Arihood, Jon Robbins and Mike Sullivan. After finally getting to our feature is had some excitement but Bob Fortner came up with yet another feature win.
Saturday night at Plymouth Speedway with some of the best heats races of the year we had 2 winner, again Chris Arihood with his 2nd win in 2 night, and Tim Sullivan collects another of his many this year. But during one Mod heat a light down pole came down which caused officials to call the races for the night.

Opening night Posted: 05-04-2014
Well after being postponed at Kankakee Speedway we got night 1 at Shady Hill Speedway in the books.
We had some good clean heats with Tim Sullivan and Mike Barger winning the heats. Tim was strong in his heat and was favored to win his first feature of the season, but on the parade lap of the feature he broke a rear trailing arm bolt and ended his night. Finally getting the feature started Mike Barger and Chris Balazs both looked strong, and after a good clean battle for the lead Chris got out front and never looked back and got his first feature win of the season. Congrats to all the winners this weekend and racing will resume next Friday night at Kankakee Speedway for their opening night!
