Diverse MARS slate includes 15 tracks

Running its first 14 events at 14 tracks, the MARS Late Model Championship series today announced its 2024 schedule with 21 races among 15 tracks overall, including first-time visits to three Illinois ovals, Maple Park's Sycamore Speedway, East Moline Speedway and Macon Speedway. | 2024 MARS schedule

The Matt Curl-owned circuit's slate is highlighted by a trio of three-race weekends, four five-digit paydays (up from one in 2023) and the tour's first visit to Paducah (Ky.) International Raceway since 2015.

The Jonathan Clayton-directed tour's de facto home track of Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway hosts a series-high four events with two series appearances at Farmer City (Ill.) Speedway, the Brownstown (Ill.) Bullring and Spoon River Speedway in Banner, Ill. The rest of the series tracks — including Paducah and Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., as the lone outside-Illinois ovals — host single events.

The first three-race weekend opens the season April 26-28 at Brownstown, Peoria (Ill.) Speedway and East Moline while a July 19-21 stretch takes the series from Farmer City to I-55 and Adams County Speedway in Quincy, Ill. The Labor Day holiday weekend marks the tour's final three-race weekend with Aug. 30-Sept. 1 events at Farmer City, Fairbury and Spoon River.

Macon's Aug. 10 Kerbystrong 100 pays $10,000-to-win along with Brownstown's Brownstown 100 on Sept. 13 while $12,000-to-win purses are set for Paducah's USA World 50 on Sept. 14 and Fairbury's FALS Frenzy tour finale on Oct. 5.
