Canton, Illinois (July 3, 2021)………Mark McMahill led all 20 laps, but it didn’t come without a challenge levied down the stretch as the Peoria, Ill. native raced to his second consecutive USAC Engler IMRA SpeeD2 Midget feature victory Saturday night at Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill.

In the process, McMahill’s third IMRA win of the year extended his point advantage in the standings to 39 as he chases a first career series championship.

McMahill started from the outside of the front row and quickly passed Jake Sollenberger at the green flag and led from there forward.

Will Armitage began his race from the eighth position and was charging at the finish, placing second behind McMahill at the line.  McMahill led all 20 laps with Armitage as the runner-up while Brent Burrows, Doug Canham and Sollenberger rounded out the top-five.
