In an effort to accommodate racers and fans in conjunction with the World of Outlaws Illini 100 at Farmer City, the Fairbury American Legion Speedway will move their regular night of racing from Saturday, April 26th to Sunday, April 27th. UMP Late Models will run for an increased purse of $2,000 to win (30 laps) and the UMP Modifieds paying $750 to win (20 laps) for the Sunday matinée. The UMP Sportsman and UMP Street Stocks will also be on the card racing for their regular night payouts. This night will be a perfect opportunity to visit the Fairbury Speedway on a night with limited racing in the area. Fans will be treated to some additional drivers in all classes in anticipation for upcoming specials throughout the year.
Gates will open at noon, with the drivers meeting set for 3:30 p.m., hot laps beginning at 4:00 p.m., qualifying at 4:30 p.m., and racing to follow. General admission tickets are $10 for adults, kids 12 and under are free with paid adult. Pit passes are $25 for adults and kids pit passes are $15. It’s the speedway’s objective to conclude the night’s events in a timely matter so all of our fans, teams, and officials can travel home at a decent hour.
In the event the Illini 100 is postponed or cancelled prior to the weekend of April 25th, 26th, & 27th, FALS will run their regular night racing program (weather pending) on Saturday night, April 26th with regular start times instead of Sunday, April 27th. Also, in the event the Illini 100 is postponed to Sunday, April 27th for weather purposes, the Fairbury Speedway will cancel its show for the same day. We are excited to give our area drivers and teams an opportunity to race at the Fairbury American Legion Speedway early this year, as part of a season filled with specials highlighted by the 25th Annual Prairie Dirt Classic paying $25,000 to win arriving in late July.
