A few years back the local race track in Jacksonville, Illinois was set to close after a promoter could not be found to continue operations.  When it appeared no one would step forward to promote the track, a small group of local residents formed a company to keep the track alive.  They named their company “Last Chance Promotions” as it truly was the last chance for the track to remain operational.

Since that time, Jacksonville Speedway has become one of the premier short track venues in Illinois and the promotion group looked to expand operations to other venues in Central Illinois.  After reaching an agreement to operate Quincy Raceways in Quincy, Illinois it became obvious that the group’s name of “Last Chance” had been outgrown.  What had once had been a last chance to keep a single track open now encompasses management of two tracks and the region’s best regional racing series: the MOWA Sprint Car Series. Thus, the birth of CILTRAK.
