August (By Tyson Graves)
It seemed like it took a long time for Mike McKinney to pick up his first feature win on the high banks of the Farmer City Raceway. In late 2019 Mike finally broke through for that first feature win. Since then, he has been hard to beat on the quarter-mile oval.
Once the season got underway at Farmer City Mike was hard to beat. Week after week we seemed to find the 96M in victory lane. No matter the competition McKinney seemed to deliver. Mike had a total of nine feature victories during the 2020 season at Farmer City. This included a streak from June and July where he won five features in a row. Two of those wins came during the Summer Nationals and American Modified Series specials.
Being able to win ten features in a shortened season at a track like Farmer City is a feat and why it is one of the top moments of the 2020 race season.
