The staff and officials at Fairbury American Legion Speedway are looking forward to their biggest season in history, with major events in 2018 including the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series.
The relationship with the Outlaws will grow deeper as Fairbury’s highly respected race director, Matt Curl, is taking over the reins of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series. He will remain an advisor to the well-established and experienced FALS team, led by fairboard president Leroy Rodriguez.
“We are excited Matt has this tremendous opportunity with the World of Outlaws,” Rodriguez said. “He’s been a huge asset to the Fairbury family, being an integral part of the team that’s put Fairbury on the dirt racing map. Now, our team is prepared to continue the tremendous success and growth we’ve seen year after year as we look ahead to 2018 and beyond.”
Plans for 2018 are nearly complete, with the schedule set to be released in early December. The fairboard will continue working with Matt to ensure the fans, sponsors and competitors have the incredible experience they’re accustomed to enjoying at FALS.
“There is so much history at Fairbury, and I’m very proud to be a part of the team that has made events like the Prairie Dirt Classic one of the biggest races of the year,” Matt said. “Fairbury will always be my home, and I’ve made so many great friends through the years. I’m excited for Leroy and our team to continue the success we built.”
