In collaboration with the Town of Wallkill, The Orange County Fair Speedway is bringing back the Eastern States Weekend Parade! 40 Dirt Modified race cars and police escorts will take to the streets of The Town of Wallkill for a salute to the fans and community.
Starting at 11am on Friday, October 25th, the parade will take off from the Wisner Ave. Speedway entrance, and continue on Wisner Ave. til it meets Route 211. The 40 800+ HP Big Block Modifieds will then go 2 wide down Route 211 east until turning back up Carpenter Ave. and reentering the Speedway grounds. Fans and members of the Town of Wallkill community are encouraged to come out and watch from the various shopping plaza parking lots along the parade route on 211, Carpenter Ave or Wisner Ave.. Kids will love this opportunity to see real live race cars on the street just before they take to the Speedway for one of the biggest races of the year.
In 1989, actor, film writer, and voice actor Johnny Brennan formed a comedy act consisting of recording prank calls he would make to unsuspecting recipients. Each call was made in character, usually with over-the-top voices influenced by Brennan’s youth growing up in New York. In 1993, the first Jerky Boys album is released and it would go on to sell enough copies to become certified platinum and develop a worldwide following.
One of the settings of Brennan’s youth to inspire his comedy was the legendary Orange County Fair Speedway. Having first attended in 1966, he remembers leaving the races with a picture of prolific OCFS driver, Will Cagle.
