CONCORD, N.C. — The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will make its inaugural stop at Fairbury American Legion Speedway next season.
The quarter-mile, semi-banked dirt oval joins the tour calendar on May 30, 2018, having hosted the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series for the last five years.
“We have wanted to bring the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars to FALS for a long-time now,” said FALS race director Matt Curl. “FALS has had a ton of success with the late models, and what better way to add excitement than by bringing in The Greatest Show on Dirt?”
Fairbury American Legion Speedway ran two 410-winged sprint car races this year, both co-hosted by the Interstate Racing Ass’n and Midwest Open Wheel Ass’n.
The most recent of those took place on Oct. 7, which saw Carson Macedo pass Joey Saldana on the last lap for the victory.
“The racing was phenomenal this year with the winged cars and we are looking forward to providing a similar racing surface for the highest caliber drivers in the country,” Curl added.
FALS is a well-decorated dirt track facility that races late models, modifieds, sportsman, street stocks and hobby mods on a weekly basis.
Additionally, FALS hosts one of late model racing’s crown jewels – The Prairie Dirt Classic – featuring the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series.
“Our fans put faith in us to provide them with a great on-track product,” said Curl. “We’ll have the track right and let the best drivers and teams in the business put on a show. The Outlaws are the best in the country and we are really looking forward to it.”
The support class for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series show at FALS will be announced at a later date.
