This year's Marky Traverse Street Stock Memorial race is bigger than ever, to the point that it has become a Full-Fender Nostalgia Night! In addition to the mighty modifieds and sportsman classes, August 3rd's event pays tribute to Marky with a special Street Stock feature!
Anthony Perrego is suddenly on fire at the Orange County Fair Speedway.
Perrego, after a slow start to the 2019 racing campaign, has left all of his Small Block Modified competition in the dust in July with four straight feature victories and in the process has taken over first place in the points standings.
Marky Traverse was a young fan who was lost too soon. For years, Orange County Fair Speedway, its fans, and the Traverse family have paid tribute to Marky with a special Street Stock race. For 2019, the memorial becomes a second “Nostalgia Night,” honoring Orange County’s history of “full-body” or “full-fender” race cars like the current Street Stock division. Adding to the program vintage pro stock, street stock, and pure stock cars will be on display, with drivers signing autographs and celebrating the 1950s and ‘60s “Drive-In” era with classic cars.
Free entry to the Speedway with Fair admission!
Following a week when the track was turned over to Monster Trucks and other organized mayhem, racing resumes Saturday, July 27 at Orange County Fair Speedway. Fans will receive FREE entry to the speedway with Fair admission.
50 years ago this weekend, mankind succeeded at something incredible that we celebrate to this day as one of our greatest achievements, we landed on the moon. In a space race against the Soviet Union, it would be 2 brave Americans, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong who crossed the finish line first. To this day, the men and women of the Apollo missions are celebrated as American heroes. They are the subjects of movies, documentaries and TV shows still being produced all these decades later.
