Fairbury American Legion Speedway ran two 410-Winged Sprint Car races in 2017, both co-hosted by the Interstate Racing Association (IRA) and Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA). The most recent coming on October 7, which saw Carson Macedo pass Joey Saldana on the last lap for the victory in thrilling fashion.

The Greatest Show on Dirt Set to Return to Terre Haute Action Track in 2018
Outlaws second visit to The Action Track since 2006
CONCORD, NC - November 9, 2017 - For just the second time in 12 years, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return to the Terre Haute Action Track in 2018. The date is scheduled for Saturday, October 13, 2018. The UMP Modifieds will be the support class for the evening.
The slightly banked ½ mile track located in Indiana most recently hosted The Greatest Show on Dirt in 2014, an event that saw 33 cars sign in for competition with nine-time Series Champion, Donny Schatz taking the victory.
"We have had a couple of great years since the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series has visited. It has been a multiple groove track surface with great crowds and we are excited to have the World of Outlaws back in at The Action Track," said Adam Mackey, the Terre Haute Action Track General Manager.
Prior to 2014, the 'Outlaws' most recent visit to The Action Track was 2006. "The Outlaws are known worldwide, not just nationwide. We anticipate a lot of fans from multiple hours away coming to see the wicked fast Winged Sprint Cars at a track they haven't seen them at," Mackey added.
The aforementioned Schatz is the only active World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series regular that owns a victory at the Terre Haute Action Track, which holds roughly seven special events annually. Will Schatz add to his legacy in 2018 or will there be a new face in the Terre Haute Action Track Victory Lane?

Postponed World of Outlaws Sprint Car Empire State Challenge Set for October 15
WEEDSPORT, NY (October 5, 2017) – Despite a rain out in mid-May the cars and stars of the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series are eager to return to New York State on Sunday, October 15 as they take on Weedsport Speedway in the rescheduled Empire State Challenge.
With the Outlaws only making one trip a year to Weedsport, the drivers say the speedway's unique layout, family friendly atmosphere, and major event feel makes it a prime stop for the tour.
"The track has a very unique shape," said defending race winner and eight-time World of Outlaws champion, Donny Schatz. "You carry all of that speed into turn one, then it opens up into that sweeping back stretch. It's a unique place for sure. You have to be aggressive but be able to be patient also."
With 14 wins on the season, David Gravel is also excited to return to The Port.
"There is a big inside wall there," said Gravel, who wheels the CJB Motorsports No. 5. "A lot of times the fastest way around is on the bottom. So you need to get as low as you can without hitting that wall. It's a unique place that throws challenges at people, and I am always up for challenges."
Shane Stewart, driver of the Larson/Marks No. 2, finished fourth at Weedsport last season and says the corner layout is what separates the track from the rest.
"The corners are just so different from each other," said Stewart. "Turns one and two are really sharp and three and four are kind of a more sweeping corner, the place is shaped like a D. We do not race in New York as much as we used to, so it is always really good to get back up in that part of the country. This part of the swing is tough with all of the local competition in Pennsylvania and the northeast."
While the race track provides unique challenges to the drivers and unique viewing opportunities for the fans, the drivers are not lost on all that Weedsport Speedway track owner Al Heinke and his team have done to advance the overall experience for spectators and teams alike.
"It's great to see all that has been done at Weedsport in recent years," said Schatz. "The place is so clean and fan friendly and those LED lights are just awesome."
The Beyea Custom Headers Sportsman Shootout Series finale will also be a part of the evening.
Tickets for the return of the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series to Weedsport Speedway are available online at www.weedsportspeedway.com through the ShowClix application on the right hand side of the homepage.
Reserved seating is on sale for $35 with general admission seating available for $30. Student tickets aged 11-17 are $15 with kids 10 and under free.
Grandstand gates will open at 4 p.m. on October 15 with opening ceremonies at 7 p.m.
Ticket stubs and blue wristbands from May's postponed program will be honored for the Sunday, October 15 reschedule of the Empire State Challenge.
