May 30, 2020 at Charleston Speedway


Last night the Charleston Speedway became the first track in Illinois to open up for a actual race since the Covid-19 Pandemic. Sonny Ross, new track promoter stuck his neck out to have an event all drivers in central Illinois have been waiting for. Following as many social distancing and health precautions possible the event happened with support from local authorities. Hopefully this was the first of many racing events to come across the state of Illinois as we close in on the summer months and the peak of the dirt racing season. Drivers, crews and fans alike were excited and had nothing but good things to say about the event on social media.
