Sycamore Speedway was happy to be able to get at least 1 night of racing in this past weekend and the fans were too! Folks & Staff were happy to be able to have a night to see the big cars in action for the Firecracker 44! For the 2015 season 44 laps has been the biggest race of the season and did all drivers come ready to win but no one could stop Car #02 Jim Klingel of Aurora. He was set from the first lap and found his groove early in the race leading all 44 laps. Promoter, Tiffany Gerace, told the drivers in their meeting this week just remember you don’t have to take the lead in lap 1 in order to finish on top. Jim must have decided he wanted that race to be his from lap 1 no questions asked. The heat races the guys & gals of racing had a lot of bugs to work out but after the momentum the Super Late Model feature set the rest of the classes did nothing more than try to put on a better show and the races were full of action and all competing to hopefully take home the checkered flag. The Late Models ran an impressive 22 laps and the winner, car #30 Derek Walker of Genoa took home the victory. This marked his first feature win ever in his racing career. Sycamore Speedway congratulates all winners and looks forward to races to come for more door to door action.
