For those wondering how the new dirt track in Morgan County, which will race on Sunday nights, might affect Quincy Raceways' late model car count, the answer is simple.
The quarter-mile facility located east of Alexander is being built by the Sheppards (Steve Sr. and Steve Jr.) and will be sanctioned by United Midwestern Promoters (UMP). Quincy will begin its 12th year as an IMCA track next April. Different rules, different cars.
I just wish the Morgan County track was running on a different evening. It would be nice to see some of the cars it is bound to attract on a regular basis, but my heart belongs to 8000 Broadway..
The Alexander track is supposed to seat 3,500 when all the bleachers are assembled. The Sheppards said in story in the Jacksonville Journal-Courier the track will run April to October.
Late models will be the marquee class at the new facility. Expect the track to get a UMP Summernationals date.
No word yet on what the other support series will be.
