Belleville, IL – This Friday, May 20th the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series and POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series will make the annual trip to Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, Illinois. Known as a driver favorite in the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series and the POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series, the high-banked quarter mile in Brownstown, Illinois always puts on a spectacular show.

Saturday’s appearance at the high-banked Mighty Macon will be the second visit of five throughout 2016 and the last available opportunity for teams to get tuned up for the visit during Illinois SPEED Week.
