Southern Illinois Raceway (SIR) is a quick, high-banked 1/8th mile clay oval most often seeing lap times in the 9 - 11 second range. The popular raceway is located approximately 5 miles east of Marion, Illinois on Highway 13. The track is completely wrapped with a high, well-supported catch fence atop a strong guardrail. It is known for becoming a slick surface from the infield tires all the way up to a fast cushion, right around the outside wall, creating the perfect conditions for lap-after-lap slidejobs and constant 3-wide battles. SIR typically runs weekly on Saturday nights from around April through sometime in October with a full set of classes that include junior sprints, dwarfs, 4-cylinder hornets, and their three 600cc classes of restrictors, non-wing outlaw, and winged outlaw. They also have an annual points championship fund, where points are accumulated throughout the race season for each class.
