SIR WELCOMES BACK ENGLER MACHINE AND TOOL AS HUSTLE SPONSOR

Southern Illinois Raceway is proud to, yet again, welcome Engler Machine and Tool as a sponsor of the 2nd Annual Sawyer Chassis Highbanks Hustle presented by Lightning Wings. Tim and Tammy Engler have been huge supporters of SIR in the last few years and we can't be more excited to have them a part of the Hustle again this year!

Engler Machine was started in 1980 by Tim Engler, his main line of business at that time was plastic injection molds. Over the years he has diversified very widely, leaning more towards "high performance products". He now builds fuel injection systems, custom made pulling chassis, gears, shafts, specialty CNC products, racing engines and some custom machining. Recently, Tim designed and developed a mechanical fuel injection system for micro sprint application that is very popular today. Even more recently, Tim also developed an electronic version of his fuel injection for micro sprints. Whether it be by way of mechanical or electronic injection, the name Engler has become synonymous with power and torque in the micro sprint community. In fact, last year Engler Machine and Tool house driver, Cale Thomas, of Fairland, IN, took home the win and top prize of $5,000 in the Highbanks Hustle utilizing an Engler Mechanical Fuel Injection system.

Anyone that wants a great, reliable fuel injection system, should give Tim or Tammy Engler a call at (812) 386-6254. We are very excited to have the support of Tim and Tammy for our biggest wing outlaw micro sprint race of the year!

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS RACEWAY IN SEARCH OF SECOND ANNOUNCER

SIR would like to open a search for a track announcer. Kurt will still be announcing as of now but has graduated pharmacy school and is not sure of his future job schedule. We are looking for someone to potentially fill in when Kurt has to work the rest of this year and then hopefully transition into a full time announcer next year.

If anyone knows of anyone please contact the Facebook page for details. Announcing experience is preferred. This will be a paid position. Also, everyone please share this announcement to get the word out faster. Thanks!
