MOORESVILLE, N.C. — A pair of Illinois race tracks promoted by Track Enterprises’ Bob Sargent — Macon Speedway and Lincoln Speedway — are the latest venues to join the SPEED SPORT Network.
Both race tracks will have their own dedicated streaming websites, joining more than 75 other affiliates as part of the SPEED SPORT Network’s rapidly growing platform.
“We are really excited about our new platform for 2021,” said Macon Speedway and Lincoln Speedway Operations Manager Adam Mackey. “We have had success with our pay-per-view services the last couple years and now look forward to making it even better with an additional subscription option to watch all the replays as well.”
Lincoln Speedway is a quarter-mile dirt oval located at the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln, Ill., and has been in operation since 2004. Lincoln Speedway will open its season this Friday (tonight) by hosting the rescheduled DIRTcar Nationals featuring four divisions headlined by the DIRTcar super late models.
Macon Speedway, located in Macon, Ill., is a fifth-mile dirt oval. The track was built in 1946 by Wayne Webb on the site of a brick factory and has been in continuous operation since. The track is owned by Sargent, Tony Stewart, Ken Schrader and Kenny Wallace.
Macon Speedway will host its 76th season opener on Saturday headlined by the DIRTcar Pro Late Models and BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds.
The SPEED SPORT Network is a joint venture between Turn 3 Media, LLC and the streaming broadcast technology company Riivet, Inc. The network delivers SPEED SPORT’s legendary brand credibility, editorial might and massive audience with a proven, proprietary approach to motorsports broadcasting.
“It’s a proud day for us to extend our long-lasting partnership with Track Enterprises to the SPEED SPORT Network,” said SPEED SPORT President Ralph Sheheen. “Bob Sargent and his team are at the top of the race-track promoting industry and are respected throughout the sport. Adding the weekly racing action from two more of America’s bullrings is a feather in our cap.”
