Fairbury American Legion Speedway


Weaver Rides to Win at Fairbury American Legion Speedway.

For Immediate Release

August 20, 1999

(Fairbury IL) Gibson City IL driver Kevin Weaver, showed that he hasn't forgotten his way around the Fairbury American Legion Speedway. Weaver, a former track champion, who know only makes special appearances in Central Illinois, led all 30 laps for his second victory of the season here.

Weaver, who started on the pole, by winning the fast dash, jumped to the lead from outside polesitter, Mike Mullvain, and was never headed. Through the mid-part of the race, Weaver" The Flatland Flash" pulled out to almost a straightaway lead. As the laps counted down, Mark Anderson closed the gap, and even made an attempt to pass on the last lap, only to come up a little short. Weaver, driving the Dick Turner owned, Turner Bus Service/ Custom Race Engine/ Rayburn finished about 1 car length ahead at the flag. Following Weaver and Anderson, were Roger Long, Mike Mullvain, and Steve Hillard. Rounding out the top ten were: Gary May, Joe Harlan, Jay Sparks, Ron Donaldsen, and Bob Pohlman Jr.


In Qualifying Roger Long set fast time of the 27 late-models present with a time of 13.68 seconds around the 1/3 mile oval. Kevin Weaver took the trophy dash ahead of Mike Mullvain, Mark Anderson, Jay Fiene, Roger Long,and Jay Sparks. The Heat Races were captured by Jim Partipilo, Matt Melvin, and Steve Hillard. The Semi-Feature victory was taken by Rocky Griffin.

In other divisions, Lance Dehm took the checkered flag in the UMP Modified division, while Gary Turpin won yet another checkered flag in the Street Stock Feature.

The next event for the Fairbury American Legion Speedway is tonight August 21, as the Ernie Mies Memorial takes place with a $1,500 to win UMP Late Model Feature, along with regular support classes. Tonights event will play a major determination in the point championship, as the points tightened up even more last night, and next week is the final night to garner track points.
