It was another beautiful Saturday evening at the Peoria Speedway with over 100 cars checked into the Pit Area. Ohios Rusty Schlenk and Roger Rebholz would put a show on in the UMP Late Model Feature. Schlenk would jump out early looking to have it in the bag when Rebholz took the new Rocket Chassis to the top shelf and started reeling in the 91 of Schlenk. Rebholz would catch Schlenk coming out of turn 2 and throw a slide job on Schlenk in turns 3 and 4 and would take off with the lead. Schlenk never lost sight as he would track Rebholz down with 4 laps to go and deliver his own slide job in turns 3...

By Josh Wessler Journal Star sports reporter @joshwessler PEORIA — A little self-control paid off in a big way for Allen Weisser on Saturday. Competing in the night’s featured race at Peoria Speedway, the 22-year-old Peorian won his first race of the season by outdueling Steven Brooks in the 40-lap Modified Feature. Weisser, who earned $2,064 by taking the checkered flag in the Gary Cook Jr. Memorial’s top event, was able to put himself into the winner’s circle thanks to some late maneuvering to deny Brooks. “It was real close,” said Weisser, whose last feature win was in the 100-lap race last September. “I got out there in front for a while and then the bottom started to go...

Hess, Chasteen Jr, Hagerdorn, Biswell, Farris, and Mackey win on 2016 Norwood Pub-N-Grub Season Opener. With more than 90 drivers competing in 20 races across six divisions, the 2016 season’s first night of racing threatened to become a two-day event as cold winds and caution flags teamed up to create an endurance test for those both in the car and out. But after the first three feature events produced more delays than drama, Charley Hess got the night back on track with a quick run to the checkered flag in the 25-lap Late Model Feature. Hess, a two-time winner in the division last season, clinched his first victory of the new year by surpassing Randy Manos Jr. on Lap...
