NOTE: RACECEIVERS... Again in 2015, 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.

Kankakee County Speedway News & Notes

Shadyhill UMP Summernationals Ticket Redemption

Kankakee County Speedway would like to welcome race fans and drivers who still have in their possession either a pit wristband or grandstand ticket at full value to any 2016 race here at Kankakee County Speedway. "There's no real easy way to handle something like this (rainout)", said event promoter Tom Smith. "Everyone who stayed and requested a full refund was given their money back at the track (Shadyhill) prior to the rains moving in. However, there are still a small number of fans who for whatever reason did not get their money back. We want to welcome those fans here and give them full value for their tickets and wristbands and hopefully they'll use this invite as an opportunity to bring along a friend to the races here at Kankakee", he added.

Patrons of the Shadyhill Speedway paid either $20 for a grandstand ticket or $40 for a pit wristband and those amounts will be honored in full as best as possible with any difference being refunded at the gate. So for example, if a race fan paid $20 for a single grandstand ticket at Shadyhill, that ticket stub is equal to two tickets here at Kankakee plus $4 (2 x $12 = $24).

Furthermore, if you have tickets or wrist bands from the DIRTcar SummerNationals event at Shadyhill Speedway on Wednesday, July 13th, you may also:

Send tickets to: Kankakee Speedway Promotions
2584 West 147th Street
Posen, Illinois 60469

A refund will be issued.

Super Late Models will not be able to reschedule this event. The Summit Modified Tour will return to Kankakee on August 26th and Shadyhill on August 27th. Tickets and wristbands may be used for those shows. Any difference in admission will be refunded when ticket is presented at the gate.

Attention Modified & Stock Car Drivers

​ Modified and Stock Car tire rule for 2016 include A40, A40s, and H40 on any corner for the entire season. Absolutely no grooving allowed.

(Sept. 14th Kankakee, Ill.) - Due to the lack of interest from late model drivers in the region, we are no longer scheduling them the remainder of this season. However, this Friday night racing will resume with a Full Show in all divisions except for UMP Late Models.

In all, five divisions will be in action Friday night, September 18th, with the UMP sanctioned Sport Compacts, Pro Modifieds (I-Mods), Stock Cars, Modifieds, and Pro Late Models all slated to compete.

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 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.
