NOTE: RACECEIVERS... New for 2014, 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. We hope this will accomodate more drivers with the use of the default channel like so many other tracks.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to circle thght 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 on 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 you, Kankakee County Speedway has a program geared just for you.

Introducing Kankakee County Speedway 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.

For more information call Tom Smith at (708) 417-6018


To all drivers and fans that came out to the races last night, May 15th. Thank you very much for braving the weather. It looked like we were going to get a lot of rain around 8:00pm. The decision to just run features was to try and get some racing in since everyone paid to get in we didnt want to get heats in and then have 5 features to try to fit in on other weeks. I must say mother nature is extremely unpredictable. Also I was extremely pleased with the race track. It held up great and I am looking forward to every week being able to prepare a track to have multiple racing grooves. It's been a long time since I have seen a middle groove used at Kankakee.

Thank you for all your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone next week with Ken Schrader on hand.

KCS To Utilize Double File Restarts During Features

Again in 2015, 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.


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.
