It's race night in Tampico

Tony Smith of Rock Falls tears around Ron Lancaster’s track Friday evening in rural Tampico on his souped-up lawnmower. Lancaster will be hosting his first night race at 1870 Coleta Road beginning at 7 p.m. tonight. The dirt track is open to lawnmowers and motorcycles, and Lancaster is encouraging kids who are interested in racing to come out to learn and watch the show.
