TAYLORVILLE — Racing comes to the Christian County Agricultural Fair on Wednesday as three divisions take to the track.
This year’s Christian County Fair triple header will once again feature sportsmen, street stocks and hornets. While all races will be sanctioned by United Midwestern Promoters (UMP), the street stock event is also part of the Big Ten series. Sporting and street stock events will pay $500 to win, while Hornets will race for a top prize of $200.
The Taylorville Fair put the race back on the schedule in 2014 and last year’s event saw one of the biggest crowds and best car counts in the event’s history. The 2021 edition saw more than 20 street actions, 16 sportsmen and 12 hornets on the track. Jeremy Nichols won the Big Ten Street Stock event, while Tommy Duncan won the Sportsman feature and Brady Reed took first place for the Hornets.
Pits open at 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, grandstands at 5:00 p.m., competitor draw ends when driver meeting begins at 6:00 p.m., hot laps at 6:20 p.m., with racing action taking to the green at 7:00 p.m.
