Jay Sparks soars to victory at Fairbury Speedway in late model

Jay Sparks moves low to pass Kevin Weaver.  Sparks went on to own its first feature of the late-model Fairbury Speedway.

FAIRBURY — There was the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat and some good stories Saturday night at Fairbury Speedway. The FALS Cup/Alkota weekly show was Championship Night with the crowning of track champions in four of the DIRTcar classes.

The show was presented by Daikin Air Intelligence and featured Mike Spatola (late model), Michael Ledford (modified), Tommy Duncan (CR Towing Sportsman) and Ian Keller (stock car) winning track championships in their respective divisions.

In the main races of the night, Jay Sparks (late model), Mike McKinney (modified), Tommy Duncan (CR Towing Sportsman), Jarrad Krick (stock car), Jason Vandermeir (hobby-modified) and Ryan Kohler (hobby-modified second race) went home as winners.

Metamora’s Jay Sparks has shown signs of being a fast race car only to be bitten by a snake when it comes time to introduce his latest model. However, things were different that night.
