New July 26-27 Date, Record Purse & World of Outlaws Late Model Series Sanction Highlight Prestigious Weekend’s 2013 Makeover
FAIRBURY, IL – Fairbury American Legion Speedway’s marquee event is getting a spectacular makeover in 2013.
With a new mid-summer date, a record purse and sanctioning from the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, the 24th annual Prairie Dirt Classic is set to become the biggest and richest dirt Late Model race in the history of the popular quarter-mile oval.
A $20,000 first-place prize will be on the line when the 100-lap Prairie Dirt Classic is run as a two-day festival of speed over the July 26-27 weekend, FALS and WoO LMS officials jointly announced on Friday.
Traditionally contested as a 50- or 75-lap DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned event over Labor Day weekend, the Prairie Dirt Classic’s move to an earlier place on the 2013 racing calendar and first-ever affiliation with the WoO LMS promises to take the event to unprecedented heights.
