Millstadt, IL – (June 5, 2014) — The 2014 POWRi Illinois SPEED Week is set to run four events in four nights at four different tracks. La st year’s Illinois SPEED Week brought out some of the world’s best midget and micro drivers, with Christopher Bell ultimately being crowned the 2013 POWRi Illinois SPEED Week Midget Champion while Cale Thomas was crowned the 2013 Illinois SPEED Week Micro Champion. After a wildly successful 2013 Illinois SPEED Week, drivers from the United States, Australia, and New Zealand are expected to compete for the title of POWRi Illinois SPEED Week Champion this year.
