  1. My parents moved back to Fairborn in 1946 from Peoria, IL We went to the races on a regular basis from the time they started having the USAC midget races. I grew up and became a confirmed dirt trak racing fan and have remained a confirmed fan of FALS racing. My husband and I have been at FALS every Sat night this summer that it hasn’t rained.

    • Thank you for writing! We love to hear that people come to Fairbury and appreciate your interest in our town!
