A look at the two feature events at Macon
MOWA’s 410-Winged Sprint Cars will be making their 11th appearance at Macon Speedway’s 1/5-mile dirt oval. Three drivers have found victory lane at Macon more than one time, dating back to 2011. Jerrod Hull, Terry Babb, and Zach Daum each have two wins with the series at the track. Bill Balog, Danny Smith, Jacob Patton, and Paul Nienhiser all have claimed one event win.
This Saturday’s Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League event will have Colby, Kan. driver Bryant Wiedeman leading the standings by 210 over second place. The young gun, Brent Crews, of Denver, N.C. sits in second. Both drivers, Crews and Wiedeman, are competing for the Rookie of the Year award as well. For the Midgets, this will be their second visit of the season.
Bradley Fezard, of Bonnerdale, Ark. sits atop the point battle for the Lucas Oil POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro League. For the Micros, a strong contingent of travelers will be joined by plenty of locals that compete regularly with Macon’s Micros By Bailey Chassis.
