When Fairbury American Legion Speedway and World of Outlaw Craftsman Dirt Late Model Series Officials first announced their partnership back in the spring of 2013, one thing was certain: the Prairie Dirt Classic was set for greatness. Taking home DirtonDirt.com's National "Race of the Year" honors three out of the past four years, the Prairie Dirt Classic has become one of the elite events in the country.
Set apart by the green-to-checkered excitement on the track and the passionate FALS fans off it, the 28th annual Prairie Dirt Classic presented by the Bank of Pontiac will again set the bar high in 2017. The two-day $30,000-to-win World of Outlaws-sanctioned event set for July 28-29 will feature the top drivers in the country chasing a total payout of $93,000 that includes $1,500 to start for the 100-lap feature event.
Fairbury officials are excited to announce the continued partnership with the Bank of Pontiac as title sponsor for the Prairie Dirt Classic weekend. The relationship between the Bank of Pontiac and all the new sponsors for the PDC weekend will allow the event to reach an even higher level for fans, drivers, and crews.
New to the Prairie Dirt Classic format in 2017, Showdown Features will headline what will be a wild Friday night of racing around the quarter-mile bullring known as FALS on July 28. Drivers entering the PDC weekend in both the World of Outlaws action and the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals will go through hot-lap sessions and qualifications before they are split up into four (4) Showdown Features in their respective classes based on their qualifying times. Throw the heat races out the door and strap in for eight "Saturday Night Shootout" style features with the best drivers in the country on the opening night of the Prairie Dirt Classic.
