Dirt track racing on Championship Night at Fairbury Speedway

FAIRBURY — Saturday night at the Fairbury Speedway was Championship Night with class titles, along with the Alkota “Keep it Clean” hard charger, still undecided and the Pappy and Bob Allen Memorial race taking place.

Making their way to victory lane on a hot and humid night were Jeffrey Ledford, Mike McKinney, Tanner Sullivan, Tommy Duncan and Chris Tippit.

A field of 22 late model drivers registered for the rescheduled 25th annual Pappy and Bob Allen Memorial race. Point leader Mike Spatola turned a lap at 12.842 seconds for quick time honors. Spatola, Jay Sparks and Kevin Weaver won their heat races. The semi feature went to Logan Moody.

Early in the 30-lap feature, as Spatola was leading, a puff of smoke showed from the rear end of his car. The yellow flag came out and although Spatola’s night was done, his 15th place finish gave him enough points to wrap up his first-ever track championship at Fairbury.
