Street Stock Special, Tire Rules Highlight Midwinter Racing News

In a busy offseason for the Fairbury American Legion Speedway, we are excited to announce what's been going on behind the scenes in preparation for the 70th year of dirt track racing at FALS. The speedway is excited to announce the addition of the May 2nd FALS Street Stock Special in memory of Earl J. Hubert paying a record $2,000 to win the 43 lap feature event. Some of the best Street Stock drivers in the Midwest are expected to compete on FALS's racy quarter-mile bullring. Complete payouts of this special and all the races throughout the season will be posted in early February on the website.

In an era when rising cost in weekly racing might be at an all-time high, meetings with sanctioning officials and other track promoters have gone well to work hard to do our best to identify issues and work with our local racers. One of the biggest topics of any track or sanctioning body is the tire rules and keeping guys on an even playing field. We here at FALS take it very seriously to continue the success of exciting weekly racing.

Here are the tire rules for FALS in 2015:

"On behalf of Gunner Sullivan and myself, we want to thank all of the FALS Nation for their support of the Fairbury American Legion Speedway!!  We want to especially thank Fairboard President Leroy Rodriguez and the entire fairboard for all their hard work and dedication they put in to make this happen.  They are a great bunch of people to work with and all the hard work is paying off!!  We also want to thank the race committee for all their time and efforts in planning and evaluating our season.  Thanks to all workers and volunteers that help each week and throughout the season.  We could not do it without you guys!!  It's a team effort from top to bottom and we are proud to have the best drivers, fans, officials, sponsors and track workers.  THANK YOU for all you do for our speedway!  We are very excited about our 2015 season which is coming sooner than we think." - Matt Curl (STLRacing Photo)
