NOTE: RACECEIVERS... Again in 2022, Kankakee County Speedway will be utilizing the default channel on the RaceCeiver. We no longer need our own dedicated channel (Ch. 110, 451.3625) for racing as in the past. And yes, RaceCeivers are mandated by the UMP sanctioning body. We hope this will accommodate more drivers with the use of the default channel like so many other tracks.

Kankakee County Speedway News & Notes


If you are planning on coming to Kankakee County Speedway this season via Interstate 57, both North & South, be prepared for delays as traffic lanes are reduced from two lanes to one lane in areas north and south of the speedway. Please allow extra travel times to get here on time. If for any reason you are running late and need to get your name in for pill draw, please call the track at 815-935-9000


Big news for UMP Modified teams this at Kankakee County Speedway. As of now, 11 nights of racing will pay $1,000 to win or more.
Huge thanks to Brookfield Iron & Metal of Chicago Heights, Wilkins Rebuilders Supply of Chicago Heights, Dyer's Top Rods of Forrest, Big Daddy Scrap (multiple locations) and Great Lakes Lifting of Peotone for their generous commitments for the 2022 racing season.

Also all divisions will hotlap / qualify this year with the use of transponders, meaning several cars at the same time will hotlap and qualify at the same time. Preparation begins in the race shops and garages!


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to circle the high banks in a real fire breathing, ground pounding dirt late model? Or perhaps you're already an experienced racer who's thrown in the towel at the costs associated with running your own race program and just want to relight the fire that burns within you. Well, if either of these scenarios sounds like it's for you, Kankakee County Speedway has a program geared just for a memorable night you won't soon forget.

Once again this year,Kankakee County Speedway presents the Rent-A-Ride Dirt Racing Experience, the only track in the Midwest that offers fans and racers alike, the opportunity to climb in behind the wheel of a real dirt late model ranging from brand new equipment to equipment with some laps on them but gently used.

KCS To Utilize Double File Restarts During Features

Again in 2022, in an ongoing effort to provide great racing for our fans, will be the use of "Kankakee Double File Restarts". A modified version of the more popularly known Delaware Double File Restarts, where under caution the leader will be placed at the front of the pack by himself, while the second place car will move to the inside lane and the third place car will take the outside lane and so on back throughout the field.

The reason the second place car takes the inside lane rather than have a choice is to make it easier and simplify things more for the drivers, but also for the scorers and track officials. There's bound to be a driver or two whose radio has quit working or they simply can't hear the tower. Thus, making this system fool proof should eliminate any unnecessary delays with the lineups.

The Kankakee Double File Restarts will only be used during feature competition but not less than 5 laps to go. This rule does not apply to the UMP Sport Compact class, who will lineup single file as instructed by the tower officials.


Per UMP DirtCar, UMP Stock Cars must now weigh #3000 with custom built engine or #2900 with a crate motor.
UMP Sport Compacts must weigh a minimum of #2400 with driver at all times. UMP does not have a weight rule in this class, however this is a local track rule that will be enforced each week. So drivers need to be aware of what their cars weigh before arriving at the track.


Media requests should be made in writing at least one week prior to the scheduled event you are wishing to cover. This includes all reporters, photographers, and videographers. Proper ID is required when signing into the pits at the track. All requests may be made by sending an email to kankakeecountyspeedway@gmail.com. Please put KCS Media Request in the subject line of your email.

While we welcome diversity, we can not guarantee all requests will be approved. Media publications may be limited as to the number of requests approved. You will be asked to provide links to any articles and/or photos from your covered event. You will receive confirmation by return email as to whether your request has been approved or disapproved. If your name and/or credential does not appear on the comp list, you will be expected to pay appropriate admission. This applies to all photographers, media members, vendors, and promotion staff from other tracks.
