On Friday, June 17, the series will hit the Tri-City Speedway. The always entertaining 3/8 mile oval in Pontoon Beach, Illinois will play host to a feature paying $2,000 to the winner. The following night completes an exciting weekend, as the best of the Monster Energy series will take on the regulars at the St. Francois County Raceway in Farmington, Missouri.  On Saturday, July 30, a “Bullring Weekend” will be underway when the Macon Speedway in Macon, Illinois will join the already scheduled event on Sunday, July 31, at Shepp’s Speedway in Alexander.
