Chicago IL, spotted a huge hairless tarantula looking spider. Bout 2 inches pitch black and huge fangs.Stout legs unlike a wolfie. Possibly a purse web. Very fast and found on a field.

Sounds like a trapdoor sp. to me. I don't know what species are local to Chicago though.

Possibly a trapdoor spider in the genus Ummidia if you're in a rural riparine habitat but more than likely a wolf spider in the genus Tigrosa
