The Southern Illinois Center is located on the grounds of the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds.

There are two state fairs in Illinois, the one in DuQuoin and also another in Springfield. Both have race tracks.

Besides the indoor dirt races at DuQuoin, there is an outdoor Dirt Mile track that opened in 1941 and has been active ever since, other than during the WWII years when racing was suspended in the United States.

Midgets are the most popular division to race at the track.

All seating is located on one side of the track.

Phil Levering: Great way to entice race fans to find some new tracks for 2018.

Ben Trask: Been there twice great races both times. Worth the trip.
