Southern Illinois Raceway is proud to announce that Lightning Wings has come on board to sponsor our 25 Lap, $500 to win Restrictor Special on June 7th. Clarissa and everyone at Lightning have been HUGE supporters of SIR in the last couple years by sponsoring our first Highbanks Hustle and then by becoming a title sponsor for the Sawyer Chassis Highbanks Hustle presented by Lightning Wings this year!

Lightning Wings will be giving away 3 gift certificates to racers in the restrictor class on June 7th. These $25 gift certificates will be given away to the winner, the hard charger, and as a hard luck award to the racer determined to have the most misfortune during the night’s races.

Lightning Wings is among the most well-known wing manufactures in micro sprint racing. They build wings for everything from wing outlaw karts, to junior sprints, to micro sprints, and even full size sprint cars!

Everyone at SIR would like to thank Lightning Wings for being such great supporters of our race track! We hope to see everyone come out and support our restrictor racers on June 7th along with all the racers in our other classes racing that night!
