I am also definitely interested in more information. I didn't know that the half mile track had been used for anything but horse racing many years ago. my father was born and raised here and lived here most of his life and his mother was a lifelong resident of Fairbury so I am very interested in historic facts regarding both the town and the fairgrounds.

I have really enjoyed reading all of the information you have researched on the history of FALS. It has been a great trip down memory lane seeing all of the results from past years. I was really surprised to see that the half mile horse track had been used for auto racing during the fair way back in the 20's. My grandfather and y father were both active volunteer at the fairgrounds for many years. congratulations on your diligent and hard work doing all of the research.

I remember first coming to FALS in the early 80's. My father raced street stock. I do not remember him winning any races, but would be interested in how he did. His name was James Perry he drove a blue ford with white numbers (33). I would be interested if anyone has pics also. I have received some from Jeff Hamilton (Thank you Jeff).

My daughter-in-law has a client at her saloon who's husband raced Stock cars at Fairbury from 49-51.  She has 8mm videos and was going to find them and loan them to us. I still have a projector and had access to a means to transfer to DVD. Keeping my fingers crossed this comes to fruition, this would be so awesome!

Heck yeah, that would be very cool.  Let us know if you get it done, we've got plenty who could help you get it online somewhere (youtube, etc)

1992 seen for the first time, Outlaw All-Star Sprints at Fals. Not to be confused with the World of Outlaw Sprints, but still the same winged unlimited sprint car.
Why did fals stop having sprints?  Did car counts diminish or the price go to high or something?
