MAPLE PARK (WIFR) -- May 18th was the first night for the 2013 race season for Sycamore Speedway to host UMP Late Models, IRS Midgets and Modified Compacts. This will be the first of 4 events held at Sycamore Speedway this year. The IRS Midgets put on a great show with 20 of their racers battling it out every lap.
Tim Ludke, #20, of the Sycamore Late Model Division took the feature win on the last lap giving himself the points he needed to be tied for 1st place overall. Charlie Olson, #28 of Kingston, took home his second feature win for 2013 in the Super Late Model feature and that win put him on top of the point standings. Sycamore Speedway also hosted a 4 bar Late Model event that brought out 9 local drivers, some from LaSalle Speedway and others from the area, to compete in this first event. It was a very competitive show and all used this time as preparation for the June 1st 50th anniversary UMP event at Sycamore Speedway.
In the coming days, Sycamore Speedway will be hosting their first Demolition Derby of 2013. May 24 marks the start of their Friday/Saturday race weekends.
