KCS To Utilize Double File Restarts During Features

Again in 2014, 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.

KANKAKEE'S TOM SMITH RECEIVES TOP HONOR
VOTED 2012 UMP PROMOTER OF THE YEAR


At the annual UMP Championship awards banquet, Kankakee County Speedway's Tom Smith, in his fourth full season at the helm, was selected by his peers as UMP Promoter of the Year. Smith has built a product that provides a show for race fans that has included six divisions of racing including the newly added UMP Pro Late Model division, a division Smith sees ready to boom in the years ahead due to the economy and rising costs associated with racing Super Late Models.

Kankakee was home to nearly 115 plus cars a week despite having a less than stellar turnout of Super Late Models on a consistent basis. Smith has worked tirelessly at improving a "leased" facility and tried to think outside the box in terms of providing quality entertainment for race fans of all ages. Among one of the most popular additions to the speedway's scene was the addition of the Kankakee County Speedway Kids Club bus that gives rides out on the speedway to more than 100 children each week. Also, one lucky driver will be rewarded with a brand new 602 crate motor just for having perfect attendance in 2012 points night races. How many promoters do that?

An honor well deserved to a promoter who advertises on multiple local radio stations each week and works so hard at taking care of the fans first. Smith is usually the one who bids the fans farewell at the main gate each and every Friday night following the night's racing program.

TIME TO GET THOSE ROADSIDE SIGNS STORED

Sadly, another successful racing season has nearly come to a halt here at Kankakee County Speedway, but the wheels are always turning to try to identify are strengths are build on our weaknesses.
Part of our success is the advertsing we do each year throughout the community with the placement of our Kankakee County Speedway road side signs. It has come time to store these signs away for the winter, while we wait what Mother Nature has in store for this winter. If you are unable to store these signs indoors out of harms way, or simply don't have the room to store them away, please contact Rick Steinke at 815-953-6569 and we will make arrangements to pick up your sign or you can drop it off out at the speedway's pit shack.
Thank you all so much for helping us this past year. We hope to see you again real soon at the Banquet or next April.

HUGE THANK YOU TO BUMPER TO BUMPER

It goes without saying that Bumper to Bumper Auto Parts knows how to make a lasting impression. Friday night's races were presented by our local Bumper to Bumper Auto Parts stores throughout Kankakee County. All throughout the night representatives greeted fans with handouts, giveaways, etc. They really made a great impression on the fans, the KCS staff, and the drivers.

It was really a great night of racing with the final checkered flag being waved at 10:17pm.

We welcome the Bumper to Bumper group to the speedway and thank them for all they've done over the years to support small race tracks like Kankakee. Be sure when you're in need, you stop into any local Bumper to Bumper Auto Parts store and say thanks for their involvement in short track dirt racing.

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.

2014 SEASON NOTICE: 2014 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.
