In an announcement by track owner Matt Curl via Facebook Live Thursday night, the Fairbury Speedway will put its season on hold until further notice as a result of continued restrictions put in place via Governor J.B. Pritzker prohibiting large gatherings in the state of Illinois due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are confident that we will resume racing this summer at some point, but the million-dollar question is ‘when’”, said Curl.  The original 2020 race schedule that was published during PRI has been removed and an updated schedule will be released as soon as possible. 

Fans having reserved tickets and camping for the May 9th FALS Spring Showcase should hold on to their reservations as FALS will be rescheduling the event for later in the year.  A reminder to all fans that have or will be purchasing reserved seating and camping in the future, you will receive a complete refund or be allowed to credit your account for the 2020 reservations if a race is canceled. 

The safety of our employees, drivers, and fans remain a priority and we will continue to monitor the situation in coordination with federal, state, local, and public health officials, along with information based on the recommendations of the CDC to make the best decisions in regards to a return to racing.

We will continue to provide updates regarding any possible changes regarding racing, season ticket information, and more via our website along with our various social media outlets via Facebook and Twitter.

Take care, be safe, God Bless.

The Fairbury Speedway will be opening up the ticketing website on Monday, April 20th at 10:00 a.m. to the general public for all remaining reserved tickets available for the Prairie Dirt Classic (July 31st & August 1st) and reserved tickets and camping for the FALS Frenzy (October 9th & 10th).  Reserved camping for the PDC is SOLD OUT.  We will be announcing overflow options for camping at the PDC later this spring, but at this time there is no available reserved camping for the Prairie Dirt Classic. 

Fairbury Speedway officials will be making an announcement in the coming weeks on the future updated schedule at FALS.  At this time, we will not be opening up the Spring Showcase (May 9th), Summer Nationals (June 27th), or Modified Nationals (September 5th) for reserved tickets or camping.  Our goal is to open up the ticketing website to the general public three weeks before the Summer Nationals and Modified Nationals depending on schedule adjustments.  Just a reminder that if an event is canceled, you will receive a complete refund or credit for your 2021 tickets. 

It is our goal that we race as much as possible in the best interest of our fans, drivers, crews, sponsors, staff, and our community.  Any questions, please email falstickets@gmail.com.

Be safe, take care, and God Bless.

Fairbury Speedway has made the decision to extend the deadline date for renewals of seating and camping reservations until Sunday, April 12th at 5:00 p.m.  We will reopen the ticketing system to the general public on Monday, April 20th at 10:00 a.m. for all five major events on the FALS schedule in 2020.

We want to assure the fans that in the event a race is canceled, you will receive a complete refund or be allowed to use the value of your tickets for credit in 2021.  That simple…

Fans can renew their cart online at www.fairburyspeedway.com. Once you get into the website, click on the “tickets” link at the top, enter your account information, and your cart will be ready to process.  You will be able to drop anything you don’t want to renew for 2020.  Remember, once you drop tickets or camping and update your cart, the tickets cannot be added back to your account.  NO new tickets or camping can be added/purchased at this time; only renewals will be able to be processed.  Once the deadline is over, all tickets and camping left in unattended accounts will go back into the general population.

We will continue to entertain requests to transfer reserved tickets that were purchased online in 2019 into alternate accounts to be processed.  NOTE: If fans want to move a portion of their accounts, they will need to notify us BEFORE they process or drop any seats/camping.  Once you process your cart, the transaction is final and we will not be able to move tickets into alternate accounts.  You will need to setup a new account before any transfers can be done. Requests can be emailed to falstickets@gmail.com.  

We would like to take this moment to say THANKS to all our fans, drivers, and sponsors for all their support of the Fairbury Speedway during this difficult time in our society.  We would also like to thank all the people that are on the front lines of this global pandemic.  Finally, we are so fortunate for all the people that are supporting our local businesses.  They are so important to the town of Fairbury.

In closing, rise up, do your part as a citizen of the United States!  Stay motivated, help others in need, we will get through this… and when we do, watch out!  Because there is no better sound that comes from our track announcer Mike Norris than “it’s time for the 800 horsepower, fire- breathing, mudslinging, grounds-pounding cars and stars of the Fairbury Speedway.”

Take care, be safe, and God Bless.

In anticipation for what could be the biggest season to date at the Fairbury Speedway, officials want to give an update on reserved seating and camping for the upcoming race season.  Final preparations are being made to give the fans all the information they will need to renew their tickets from 2019 and purchase new tickets in 2020.  Our anticipated date to start the renewal process will be Wednesday, February 19th at 10:00 a.m.  At this time, fans that purchased tickets and camping online in 2019 will have their carts preloaded with only those online tickets/camping for the major events.  An email will be going out to all ticket/camping holders on the date the site will open up with an outline of the renewal process and ticketing information.

With the addition of the FALS Frenzy, now permanently in the month of October (this year on October 9th & 10th ), reserved tickets and camping holders from the original weekend in May will have the October weekend preloaded into their carts for 2020, giving them the option to purchase those tickets/camping or dropping them, if they wish.  We feel it is only fair to those people to have the choice since it was moved last year to October from the rainout in May.  People are not obligated to purchase those tickets, but once they are removed from your cart they cannot be added back and will be put back into the system for the general public.

New in 2020, for ONLY the $50,000 to win World of Outlaws Prairie Dirt Classic presented by the Bank of Pontiac, reserved tickets will be purchased in-full per seat, which includes the general admission portion of the ticket, for the weekend.  This MEGA weekend will be filled with incredible action-packed racing, eight showdown features, PDC Shriner’s Children’s Hospital Golf Outing & Auction, bags tournament & live band, race day Suave Talk on the famous bus, driver autograph session, and much more! These will all be must-attend activities during one of the top Crown Jewel events in the country.  Taking an event to the next level like we are doing this year requires the ticketing platform to be simple and clean.  All reserved tickets will be $69 regardless of the age for the Prairie Dirt Classic weekend.  Kids 12 and under attending the event will receive a complementary PDC goody bag included in the admission.  They will receive a voucher upon arrival to redeem at the merchandise stand during the event.  All reserved tickets will be available for pick up at will-call throughout the season at the track or will be mailed to each fan after the July 1st deadline.  Any tickets purchased after the deadline or not picked up before the event will be able to be picked up at Gate 1 will-call window during the PDC.  Fans wanting to use the mail option should make sure your account information is correct and up-to-date.  FALS will not be responsible for incorrect mailing addresses.

Fans will have over four weeks, until Sunday, March 22nd at 5:00 p.m., to renew their cart online at www.fairburyspeedway.com. Once into the website, click on the “tickets” link, enter your account information, and your cart will be ready to process.  You will be able to drop anything you don’t want to renew for 2020; but beware, once you drop tickets or camping and update your cart, they cannot be added back to your account.  NO new tickets or camping can be added/purchased at this time; only renewals will be able to be processed.  Once the deadline is over, all tickets and camping left in unattended accounts will go back into the general population.

Due to the change in policy for this event, we will consider requests to transfer reserved tickets that were purchased online in 2019 into alternate accounts to be processed.  NOTE: If fans want to move a portion of their accounts, they will need to notify us BEFORE they process or drop any seats/camping.  Once a user processes their cart, the transaction is final, and we will not be able to move tickets into alternate accounts.  New accounts will need to be set up by the user before any transfers can be done. Requests can be emailed to falstickets@gmail.com.  

All other reserved seating and camping events throughout the year, including the May 9th FALS Spring Showcase, June 27th DIRTcar Summer Nationals presented by Rhino Ag, September 5th Casey’s Modified Nationals, and the October 9th & 10th FALS Frenzy presented by Edelman Electric, Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, will be the same structured ticketing system that FALS has utilized in the past, where the fan only pays for the reserved seat in advance and then pays the general admission portion of the ticket when they arrive at the gate. 

The anticipated date for remaining tickets and camping to go on sale to the general public for all events will be Thursday, April 2nd at 10:00 a.m.  At this time, all remaining tickets for all events will be available for purchase online.
