The Fairbury Speedway is excited to announce the reserved seating and camping outline for the 2021 race season.  Please understand that 2020 was a very unique year and a number of things had to be moved around to accommodate as many fans as possible.  We are very dedicated to make the best possible events in which fans and drivers have the opportunity for reserved seating and camping.  Outlined below will be the process in which the Fairbury Speedway ticketing team will operate.  If you have questions regarding reserved seating and camping, please send an email to falstickets@gmail.com.

Prairie Dirt Classic Update

  • Fans that purchased PDC reserved tickets and camping in 2020 that did NOT request a refund will have those tickets honored for the 2021 event on July 30th/31st. You will have the option to pick up your tickets at any race prior to June 26th at the Fairbury Speedway.  A designated area to pick up the tickets will be announced prior to opening night.  All remaining tickets not picked up will be mailed after July 1st
  • ALL PDC reserved camping is sold out for 2021. Fairbury Speedway will have overflow camping at the school to the west of the speedway on a first come, first serve basis which will be outlined in the PDC information guide later this year.  We will soon be announcing a number of other options for camping within walking distance to the track at additional lots to the west of the speedway. 
  • Tent camping will be available for the weekend in designated areas only. Tent camping will be $20 per tent. More info to come on tent camping.
  • Any remaining reserved seats for the PDC weekend will go online for purchase on Tuesday, June 1st at 10:00 a.m.
  • General admission tickets and pit passes can only be purchased at the gate and not in advance.
  • The main covered grandstand will be general admission seating for the PDC.

Renewals

  • Reserved seating and camping for the (4) major events can be renewed starting today (March 10th) and ending Wednesday, April 7th at 5:00 p.m. NO EXCEPTIONS. 
  • Because we merged two events into one for last year’s FALS Super Nationals, only camping reservations for the September 4th race were preloaded into carts for 2021. If you paid for reserved seats in advance for the original Modified Nationals weekend, those seats will be in your cart ready for renewal.  (There will be a large number of reserved seats available for the September 4th Super Nationals event for purchase.)
  • Please note that once you drop something from your cart, you will not be able to get that back and it will go back into the general population for sale at a later date.

Reserved Seating & Camping On Sale Dates

You will have the first chance to purchase reserved seating and camping for Fairbury Speedway’s major events in 2021 on the following dates.  A reminder that no general admission tickets or pit passes will be sold in advance of the event…only reserved seating and camping.  The ticketing site can be found on the Fairbury Speedway website at www.fairburyspeedway.com

2021 Schedule of Events

It goes without saying that sometimes it’s better late than never.  That couldn’t be more true with the announcement today that the Fairbury Speedway is on track and planning for a full season of racing, including the running of the 31st edition of the Prairie Dirt Classic presented by the Bank of Pontiac and the Illinois State Rifle Association.  After ongoing meetings with local and state officials, the Fairbury Speedway is excited to announce a full lineup for the 2021 race season starting with opening night on Saturday, May 1st.

“I am extremely grateful for everyone involved in making the Fairbury Speedway what it is today,” says Fairbury Speedway owner and promoter Matt Curl.  “I would like to say ‘Thank You’ to all the fans, drivers, teams, sponsors and crews for what turned out to be a great season at FALS considering all we went through.  With so many unknowns throughout the last season, I am very proud of the way all the events were handled, including working with the local health officials that allowed us to race.  The FALS crew made that happen, and I am very lucky to have the best crew in the business.  With all of your support, we are able to do what we love to do and that is to entertain and provide all with a first-class racing facility.” 

fals cupBack for its third season, the FALS Cup Weekly Championship will take center stage for what is arguably one the best weekly race programs in the country.  The special series will continue to feature unprecedented payouts at all weekly shows for both DIRTcar Late Models ($2,500 to win and $300 to start from a total purse of over $10,000) and DIRTcar Modifieds ($1,500 to win and $175 to start from a purse exceeding $6,000).

Overall, more than $22,000 in purses will be distributed at Fairbury’s weekly shows, which will also include the DIRTcar Sportsman, DIRTcar Stock Cars, and Hobby Mods in 2021. And despite the incredible payouts, general admission and pit gate prices will stay the same at $10 and $30, respectively, during the upcoming season that kicks off on May 1.  Opening night will also pay tribute and recognize the champions from the 2020 race season.

After a couple weeks to shake the dust off, we will open up our season of special events on Saturday, May 15 with the FALS Spring Showcase, presented by Titan Industries & Mackinaw Valley Powder Coating. This Showcase will feature the MARS Late Model Series paying $15,000 to win, accompanied by the DIRTcar Modifieds paying $3,000 to win.  A big weekend, indeed, in central Illinois with the Farmer City 74 paying $10,000 to win the night before.

allstar sprintsComing back to the Fairbury Speedway in 2021, after a long anticipated wait, will be Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series on Thursday night, June 3rd, as part of the Thursday Night Shootout. This event will also feature the ever-popular DIRTcar Late Models, which will race alongside the All-Star Sprints in this spectacular night of racing.  Both the All-Star Sprints (co-sanctioned with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series) and the DIRTcar Late Models will be racing for $5,000 that night.

The annual DIRTcar Summer Nationals will roll into town as part of the opening weekend of the Hell Tour on Saturday, June 19th.  The $10,000-to-win Late Model special, presented by Rhino Ag, will also include the Summit Modified Nationals paying $2,000 to win and DIRTcar Sportsman $500 to win.  After damaging storms rolled through the speedway at the conclusion of last year’s race, we hope all the fireworks will be on the track this year for what typically is one of FALS best weekends of the year.


We are very excited to announce our marquee events for the 2021 season at "America's Dirt Track", the Fairbury Speedway. On behalf of the Matt Curl family and the entire Fairbury Speedway team, we would like to say “Thank You” to all the fans, drivers, teams, sponsors, and crews for what turned out to be a great season at FALS. With so many unknowns throughout the season, we are very proud of the way all the events were handled, including working with the local health officials that allowed us to race as much as we did.

We are very fortunate to have the best fans, sponsors, and teams be a part of the Fairbury Speedway each and every year. With all of your support, we are able to do what we love to do and that is to entertain and provide all with a first-class racing facility.

We are looking forward to what 2021 will bring at the Fairbury Speedway. Even though there are still a lot of logistics to finalize leading into next season, it will not stop us from being one of the leaders in the industry with weekly racing and incredible special events. These events will be highlighted by the 2021 Prairie Dirt Classic presented by the Bank of Pontiac, which will pay $50,000 to win on the weekend of July 30-31.

The 2020 edition of the Twin 10’s FALS Super Nationals presented by Casey’s and New Solutions Ag featured 114 cars in two divisions and brought drivers from 16 different states to compete. This holiday tradition has been known for some of the best racing all year.

One for the Road” is back! This special race will be a part of the nationally renowned Late Model Night in America Series hosting the nation’s best as they compete for a $15,000 top prize on Tuesday, September 14. This past September, “One for the Road” fielded an impressive 44 late models in a race that saw multiple lead changes among five drivers in a 50-lap feature affair. I Beam Sliding Doors will once again be the presenting title sponsor for this event, in which the DIRTcar Modifieds will be in action as well, paying $2,000 to win.

fals frenzyThe final special on the FALS docket for 2021 will be the traditional FALS Frenzy presented by Edelman Inc. on Saturday, October 9.

We will be announcing all the special event information as soon as possible, including reservations for seating and camping and other specific event details.
