2018 Track Preview: Kickapoo Speedway in Oakwood, IL
In 2018, Kickapoo Speedway will kick off it's 2nd full year of operation by the Daugherty family after having taken over the former Vermillion County Speedway in late 2016. Racing will continue on Saturday nights while the family balances it's schedule with their other track, Daugherty Speedway, that hosts racing on Friday nights just an hour to the east. With a full year under their belt at Kickapoo, they've worked hard to get the surface 'just right' so that great racing can be enjoyed from the new all aluminum bleachers.

At Kickapoo Speedway, while some improvements have focused on the physical (new ALL ALUMINUM bleachers) and technological (new communications and security cameras), the biggest improvements focus on creating MORE RACING opportunities for more racers, including both a 'Scrapper' class and a 'Mini-Wedge' class for children from 5-14 to get their first racing experiences. As explained by the track's promoter, Michael Daugherty, "The price point is set low enough that it's affordable and replacement engines are just $99".
