25th Annual Prairie Dirt Classic Weekend Information

A crown jewel is born as the Fairbury American Legion Speedway will play host to the highest paying dirt Late Model race in Illinois history with the running of the 25th Annual Prairie Dirt Classic on July 25th & 26th. The two day $25,000 to win World of Outlaws sanctioned event will welcome the top drivers in the country including Darrell Lanigan, Jimmy Owens, Jonathan Davenport, Billy Moyer, and many more! The 26 car field will pay a strong $1,500 to start with a full payout of $88,000 for the 100 lap feature event. In addition to the PDC weekend events, Friday night will also see the conclusion of the Lynn Chevrolet Buick UMP Summer Nationals that were rained out earlier this season. The 12 lap B-Main and the 50 lap A-Main feature event paying $10,000 to win will follow World of Outlaws heat races Friday night, July 25th. This race will bring more excitement to an already highly anticipated PDC weekend.
