The Corn Belt Clash Dirt Late Model Series will invade the Fairbury American Legion Speedway for the first time in the series history in the inaugural CBC / ALMS Triple Shot Weekend. The $3,000 to win, $300 to start, 40-lap features will host the best that the Midwest has to offer in a trio of Central Illinois tracks on Labor Day Weekend August 29th – 31st. Farmer City Raceway will lead-off the holiday weekend on Friday, FALS will spotlight Saturday night, and Vermilion County Speedway in Danville will host the Sunday night finale. All three nights will be co-sanctioned with the UMP ALMS Series, have the same purse, same rules, and same procedures which will be released soon through the website.
In putting the finishing touches on the 2014 FALS schedule, the KidModz Racing Series will return to the Fairbury Speedway on June 14th. The Sportsman Topless Special has been moved to Fair Night on Wednesday, August 13th. The Street Stocks will move to the Saturday Fair Championship Night on August 16th. Details for the Sportsman Topless Special will be announced before the season begins.
Fairbury Speedway is excited to announce a new championship points format FALS will be implementing in 2014 for its track champions. With all the debate on specials, rainouts, and the number of nights counted in each division, the speedway has made the decision to accumulate points every night of racing in each division and drop the lowest points night throughout the race season. A driver must have perfect attendance in order to drop a night.
To give an example on how this works (which hopefully will make the points chases extremely exciting in mid-August): The Modified division this year has 20 scheduled races throughout the season leading up to Fair Championship Night. If there are no rainouts, a driver will count a max of 19 total nights of points. If they run 20 nights, they will drop the lowest points night from the season to come up with 19 nights of points. If a driver races 19 times during the season and misses just one night, the driver will have to count all of his/her points nights because it is based off of the total number of races minus one night. If there are 3 rainouts for the mods, 17 races will have been run concluding with Fair Championship Night and a driver will count 16 nights of points. Each of the divisions will have a different number of total races leading up to the finale. The Prairie Dirt Shootout will not count as full track feature points, but will count as UMP feature points. Drivers making the PDC shootout will receive 20 starting points; all other drivers not making either the PDC or PDC Shootout will receive 10 track points.
Here is a list of new information being released from the speedway. All rules, payouts, and other speedway material will be added to the website as soon as possible:
- The Alkota “Keep it Clean” Series will officially have 10 race nights scheduled throughout the year. These dates are noted on the FALS schedule. Rainouts will not be rescheduled throughout the season. This year’s champion will be the “Hard Charger of the Year”. Specific details will be posted on the website this spring.
- Payouts for the 2014 race season will be posted in early March. Regular night payouts for all classes have remained the same. A list of all the special payouts including the PDC, PDC Shootout, and Summer Nationals will be posted as soon as possible.
