The Southern Illinois Raceway schedule is set for the 2022 season and it features a few new and exciting changes as well as some old staples!
Highlighted by the 10th running of the Engler Machine and Tool Highbanks Hustle and the 15th Annual Terry Sprague Memorial, the schedule boasts 22 dates and 4 practice nights. The staples of the Performance Electronics Preludes to the Hustle and Sprague return in ’22 and showcase their normal $1000 to win and $100 to start payouts for Wing and Non-Wing outlaw respectively. The class specials also return for the Sportsman, Junior Sprint, Mod Lite, Restrictor, and Dwarf divisions. Each of those races will guarantee a $500 to win payscale regardless of car count!
A handful of NEW things also take place in ’22.
Leading the pack is a slimmed-down points schedule. As you’ll notice, we’ve chosen 10 nights to designate as a points night. Each of those nights is an opportunity to accumulate points towards the 2022 Season Championship. At the end of the year, we’ll take your best 8 races and crown champions for each division. Not to be left there, SIR has established a $1500 points fund for each class. Bragging rights are nice, but nothing beats cash to bank! The Champion of EACH division will pocket a cool $750, second will see $450 coming their way and 3rd bringing in $350. Also new this year is the addition of at least one off weekend per month. Make sure you take a look and mark those dates!
Also new for ’22 is the Illiana Championship presented by HART. SIR will participate in the 2nd of a 2-weekend series where competitors will settle it out. Illinois or Indiana! Each night of the Illiana Championship will feature a $1000 to win and $100 to start payday for the Non-wing outlaw division! SIR’s date for the Illiana Championship is partnered with Tri-City Speedway and Wayne County Speedway and will take place the weekend before the 15th running of the Prairie Farms Terry Sprague Memorial!
Last, but probably the MOST exciting!! In ’22 SIR will GUARANTEE a $500 to win and $50 to start payday for the Non-Wing Outlaw Division on all non-major show weekends! Each night will be advertised in advance. As always, if the class hits their 16+ car count, they’ll still get the normal $500 payscale as well!! Thank you Non-Wingers for your support at SIR. We truly appreciate it!!
We look forward to an EXCITING 2022 Season and can’t wait to see you all in a few short months!!
