The Silvis Dirt Oval Has Been Reconfigured. Track Is Slightly Longer And Much Wider. We Had A Handfull Of Guys Run On Tuesday, All Very Pleased With New Layout. Corners And Staights Have 14' Lanes, Cars Ran High And Low, Should Provide For Good Racing. We Had Planned To Hold First Race On April 28, But The Rain Took Care Of That. We Will Spend This Coming Week Re-grooming The Track. Should Be Ready By Mid Week. Any Questions Call Tim 309-751-9663.

whoa!!! wait a minute i wouldn't say professional. we're just a bunch of guys who love to get together and have some good racing fun. we rub, bump, and an occasional what the ---- just happened. if we can do alot of rubbing and laugh about it later i guess we're your professionals.

Hey Tim Here Would Like To Thank Everyone For Coming Saturday. Seems That Everyone Had Good Races And Most Of All , Lots Of Fun. Hope To See Everyone Back On Saturday If Weather Holds Up. The Track Is Living Up To My Expectations, The First Night We Ran Last Years Laps And After Sat Races We Beat The Pace By 4 Laps. I expect Those Lap Times And Laps Will Fall By The Way Side Also. A Special Thankx To All That Helped In Getting The Track To Where It Is Now.all For Now See Ya At The Races.
