Track Info

The Fairbury American Legion Speedway is a 1/4 mile semi-banked dirt oval located in Fairbury, Illinois at the Fairbury fairgrounds. The track is operated by the local American Legion, in a largely volunteer system of neighborhood folks who put their time and effort into trying to provide a top-notch dirt track facility for fans throughout the Midwest. FALS has won UMP's track of the year award once in the '90's and most recently in 2006 and 2007.

The tracks weekly divisions consist of the UMP DIRTcar Late Models, UMP DIRTcar Modifieds, UMP DIRTcar Stock Cars (Street Stocks), UMP DIRTcar Sportsman, and the entry-level Hobby Mods.

The track runs a number of high profile events including the annual running of one of Illinois' premier nostalgia Late Model races, the Prairie Dirt Classic, as well as specials in each division throughout the year.
