August 23, 2017 - Magic Mile Set to Come Back to LIfe
DuQuoin State Fair "Magic Mile" Set For Labor Day Weekend Showdown
USAC, ARCA, & MODS To Pack Stands In Traditional Event

1 (DuQuoin, IL) After a highly successful weekend of Illinois State Fair racing, the staff of Track Enterprises is now preparing for a huge Labor Day weekend of auto racing at the DuQuoin State Fair, in DuQuoin, IL.  The Magic Mile will be hosting the USAC Silver Crown Series presented by Traxxas, the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, and the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds.  This year, action will be back to a Sunday-Monday program, as it was for many years.

Racing begins on Sunday, September 3, as the USAC Silver Crown Series presented by Traxxas heads to the track to run in the Ted Horn 100.  The resurgence of the Silver Crown Champ Cars was again evident at the Illinois State Fair event last weekend, as 40 cars were trackside.  Unfortunately, some engine issues and crashes took the field down to 34 for the 100-mile race, but that's still more than a scheduled starting field.  Another outstanding group is expected at DuQuoin next Sunday.

Justin Grant claimed his first ever Silver Crown win in Springfield and will again be one of the favorites in DuQuoin.  The Bettenhausen 100 saw a number of lead changes and great field parity.  Drivers like Grant, Kody Swanson, Jerry Coons, Jr., and Brian Tyler were all threats.  Throw in the veteran, Jeff Swindell, who started 28th and finished 3rd, and it was a great race.  Chris Windom was last year's Ted Horn 100 winner. >>READ MORE
