NOTE: RACECEIVERS... Again in 2021, 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

KANKAKEE'S RENT-A-RIDE DIRT RACING EXPERIENCE

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 2021, 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.

NOTICE TO SPORT COMPACT DRIVERS

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.

2021 SEASON NOTICE: 2021 MEDIA REQUESTS

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.

This applies to all photographers, media members, vendors, and promotion staff from other tracks.
