Reed's low groove wins Big Ten


More than 60 kids made their way to the CEFCU Kid’s Club, and 3-year-old CEFCU Kid’s Club member Corbin Henderson joined the folks on the flagstand.

On Saturday, April 26, the wildly popular POWERi midgets and micros make their first of five appearances at Macon Speedway this season. They are joined by Billingsley Towing UMP modifieds, UMP street stocks, UMP outlaw hornets and stock hornets.

Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing begins at 7.
