Drivers and teams throughout central Illinois are ready to show off their newly painted rides this coming weekend at Hickory Point Mall in Forsyth, IL. The show is back for a fourth straight year, after a near 20 year hiatus. The Macon and Lincoln Speedway event is scheduled for this Friday-Sunday, March 15-17.
The show will be three days long with cars entering on Thursday, March 14 at 9:00 PM and exiting on Sunday, March 17 at 5:00 PM. Track Enterprises will also have a booth set up, handing out info including pocket schedules for their special events in addition to Macon, Lincoln, and the Terre Haute Action Track. UMP Memberships will be on sale in addition to a signup box for a chance to win Macon Speedway and Lincoln Speedway season opener tickets.
The show is a great benefit to those who like to display their newly prepared rides before receiving battle scars from on track action. It's also an additional benefit to sponsors, putting them in front of thousands of sets of eyes over the course of the show. Those who entered the show are asked to arrive by 8:30 on Thursday night to prepare for entry into the mall and to bring material for under the car in case of a possible leak.
The car show is the unofficial start to the season, as test and tune events will start next week on Saturday, March 23 at Macon Speedway and Sunday, March 24 at Lincoln Speedway. Lincoln Speedway’s 16th season of racing will take the green flag on Friday, April 12th, while the 74th Macon Speedway season opener is set for Saturday, April 13.
Hickory Point Mall opened in 1978 and is located in Forsyth, IL, the northside of the greater Decatur area. It features Bergner's, Kohl's, Ross, Von Maur, TJ Maxx, and Hobby Lobby in addition to a large number of specialty shops.
