BIG-BLOCK MODIFIEDS RETURN TO ORANGE COUNTY FAIR SPEEDWAY SATURDAY, APRIL 30

$5,000 TO WIN 30-LAP FEATURE RACE

Posted: April 24th, 2016

MIDDLETOWN, NY (April 24)……..Following a week off, the 800-horsepower Big-Block Modifieds return to action on the five-eighths-mile Orange County Fair Speedway this coming Saturday evening, April 30. And they will be racing for an enhanced purse. For this night only, the total Modified division purse will be increased by $5,000! The winner of the 30-lap feature race will see his prize money doubled from $2,500 to $5,000. An additional $2,500 will be distributed to other feature race finishing positions, making this the largest payout for a 30-lap feature in the track’s 67-year history of weekly stock car racing.

In the spirit of cooperation with other Big-Block Modified races being held the same date, the regular point structure for this night will be suspended. All Orange County registered Big-Block Modified drivers racing either at Orange County or the Super DIRTcar Modified Series event at upstate Fulton Speedway will receive 25 “show up” points.

In addition to the headline Big-Block Modifieds, the highly competitive Sportsman, the unpredictable Rookie Sportsman, the full-bodied Street Stocks, and the Vintage Modifieds will be in competition. All divisions, except the Vintage Mods, will compete in qualifying races to set the fields for the evening’s feature events.

The entire racing program has been designated Ralph Corwin Memorial Night in honor of the dedicated motorsports photographer and friend of the Orange County racing community who recently passed away. The sponsor for the evening is WALL Radio.

Adult admission for all Saturday night programs is $15, Seniors $13, and Children 12 and under $1.00. Racing gets underway at 6:30 pm.

Advance and season ticket sales and additional information is available at the Track Office. Call 845-342-2573 during business hours. Fans and competitors are reminded to visit the speedway website for the latest track news: www.orangecountyfairspeedway.net.

Opening Night Recap

Posted: April 18th, 2016

By FRANK CATIZONE
MIDDLETOWN, NY – Bob McGannon had no idea how much of a lead he had during last Saturday night’s season-opening, 30-lap Modified feature at the Orange County Fair Speedway.

McGannon, a fan favorite at the historic racing facility, which has hosted Modified racing since 1948, was only concerned with getting to the finish as he collected a first-place payoff of $4,000 and became the 69th different driver to capture an OCFS season opener.

“This car was just awesome tonight,’’ said McGannon, who completed the 30-lap distance in just 14 minutes and 43.374 seconds. “I didn’t know how far in front I was. I was just concerned with keeping the car straight and finishing.

“I thought I also had a very good Small Block Modified car tonight and would have been in contention for that win as well. But we had a little mishap early in the race and I was forced to drop out with mechanical issues. But this was a great way to start the season and I’m happy I was able to bounce back after some adversity in the Small Block race.’’

McGannon, who captured the third qualifying race, was scheduled to start third for the Modified main event. However, pole-sitter Mike Kolka ran into some difficulties following the initial green flag to force a quick caution.

Kolka, who appeared to be a contender for the victory after a powerful winning performance in the first qualifying heat, slowed while racing down the backstretch and stopped in the third turn to bring racing to a halt. Kolka was towed off the track with rear end problems to his Modified.

That opened the door for McGannon to restart the race on the pole and would be the only caution during the event. McGannon was able to get the quick jump on Jeremy Markle when racing resumed and would stretch out his lead lap after lap.

Craig Mitchell was also able to pass Markle following the restart, but was never a factor as he finished nearly three seconds behind McGannon when OCFS starter Bob Ryder waved the checkered flags. McGannon was averaging speeds nearly 103 miles per hour around the five-eighths mile, hard clay oval.

Markle was able to ride in third place throughout the race and reigning track champion Jerry Higbie did likewise in taking fourth. Ken Tremont Jr. passed Steve Dodd on the second lap to grab fifth place and remained in that position as well.

Those rounding out the top 10 were Dodd, Tommy Meier, Chris Whitehead, Billy VanInwegen and Stewart Friesen, who was making his OCFS weekly debut aboard the Halmar No. 44 Modified.

Brett Hearn, who drew 40th place for the quailifying events, was never a factor as he finished nearly 10 seconds off McGannon’s winning pace. McGannon picked up his third career Modified victory and his first since July 12, 2014.

Jimmy Horton, who will also be a weekly competitor in the Halmar No. 43 during the 2016 season, dropped out after 26 laps and finished in 23rd position.

Brian Krummel had a successful maiden voyage behind the wheel of the Zubi’s Racing No. 17Z as he completely dominated a 21-car field to capture the Small Block Modified 25-lap main event.

Krummel, after starting third, was able to power ahead of Shane Jablonka following a fifth-lap restart to grab the lead and then went on to provide car owner Dave Zubikowski with his first win ever at the track. It was Krummel’s second career Small Block victory and first since June 8, 2013.

“Dave (Zubikowski) was at Grandview with Doug Manmiller,’’ said Krummel, “but I was in contact with him several times during the night and he couldn’t be happier. I do most of the work on this car myself at his shop in Greenville, but I also get a lot of help from a great group of guys.

“This is a great opportunity for me and I’m glad Dave has enough trust in me to get things done here while he’s with his other drivers in Grandview. The only thing I want to do is race as much as I can and this was a great way to start our season. I was just worried about staying focused because this was my first race this season. Some of the other drivers already have raced a few times.’’

Krummel, who dominated Sportsman racing with 33 career wins and two track titles during the past decade here, was clearly the class of the field as he set a blistering pace to finish nearly eight seconds ahead of Jablonka. The Middletown driver turned in a fast time of 21.548 seconds (104.418 mph) around the track.

Meier followed Jablonka across the line in third place with Rob Rowe, Jesse Leiby, VanInwegen, Jimmy Spellmon, Bobby Hentschel, John Ferrier and Zack Vavricka rounding out the top 10.

Fourteen-year-old rookie driver Dillon Steuer drove like a seasoned veteran as he withstood several cautions and some hefty competition breathing down his back to grab his first career win in the Sportsman 20-lap feature.

Steuer, a former slingshot driver, who was making just his second OCFS career start, started on the pole and led the entire distance as he finished ahead of Tyler Boniface, Jared LaBagh, Jeff Hulseapple and Tyler Johnston.

Boniface, after starting 20th in the 24-car field, made a great charge from the back as he took advantage of seven caution periods to move into contention. But he never seriously challenged Steuer after slipping past Troy Arnold following a last-lap restart.

A resounding field of 56 Sportsman signed in for opening-night competition with six heats and three consolation races determining the starting grid for the feature.

Mike Vigiletti became only the fifth driver in OCFS street stock history to collect 20 career victories as he captured the Jeremy Michael Hedges Memorial 15-lap feature ahead of Jim Maher, Ray Tarantino, Joel Murns Jr. and Emerson Cargain Sr.

Vigiletti was able to move ahead of Maher following a fifth-lap restart and never looked back as he earned an impressive victory.

Walt Henry won the Four Cylinder feature event.
