The July 11 racing program at Orange County Fair Speedway program was postponed following a late afternoon shower that inundated the already well-soaked Middletown, New York track and fairgrounds. The complete four division night of racing is now set for Saturday, July 18. The card includes the headline United Rentals DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, the slightly less powerful H.O. Penn Small-Block Modifieds, the unpredictable Sportsman, and the full-bodied Street Stocks in qualifying and feature races.
If you like the earth-shaking 467 cubic-inch, 800 horsepower Big-Block Modifieds, then you’ll want to be at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York each of the next three Saturday nights, July 11,18, and 25. Headlining each of these weekly racing programs will be the track’s super-fast United Rentals DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, competing in a series of qualifying races that lead to 30-lap feature events each paying the winner $3,000.
Confirmed invaders include Stewart "Mr. Freeze" Friesen, LJ Lombardo, Andy "The Wild Child" Bachetti, Billy Decker, Peter "The Batman" Britten, Rick "Scooby" Laubach and Rickie Davis. Dirt racing fans know what a treat it is to see the likes of regular invaders like Andy Bachetti and LJ Lombardo go toe-to-toe, or the classic rivalry of Stewart Friesen and Matt Sheppard! Seriously, there are too many drivers who could win either or BOTH of these twin 50-lappers.
There will be a Superman, an Ant-Man, a Batman, a Mr. Freeze and even a Scooby, throwing it down on 5/8 mile of clay in 800+ HP Big Block machines, now if that doesn't sound like a show what does?!?
Thursday July 2nd's Twin 50-Lap, $5,000 each to win event will attract a number of outside invaders to OCFS
A Doubleheader Program Featuring the Rapid Tire East Coast USAC Sprint Cars
Double your pleasure. Double your fun! The United Rentals DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds are headlining a special pre-Independence Day race meet for enhanced prize money Thursday, July 2 at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York. This spectacular doubleheader program features both the earth-pounding Modifieds and the Rapid Tire East Coast USAC Sprint Cars. The Modifieds will compete in a pair of 50-lap main event feature races, each paying the victor $5,000. Should any driver sweep the night, winning both Modified features, there’s a $5,000 bonus, making it a $15,000 payday for 100 laps of racing! On both days, qualifying races will set the fields for the feature races.
We are now just a week away from the first big special format event at OCFS, a twin 50-lap feature on Thursday, July 2nd, also featuring the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars. With an enhanced $5,000 to win each 50-lap feature, some of dirt racing's finest will be there looking to claim victory, confirmed among them already is Stewart Friesen, NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series driver.
The Northeast's favorite racing Power Couple, Stewart and Jessica Friesen, will both make their return to OCFS for Saturday, June 27th's racing program in the United Rentals DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds, and they'll be bringing the Halmar Race For Hunger with them! The Halmar Race to Beat Hunger has already donated over 16 tons of food to local food banks, and now they want to make an even bigger impact.
The Friesens' goal is to increase awareness and to raise $200,000 for local food banks. Check out The Halmar Race For Hunger Website where for each donation of $100 or more, you can receive a commemorative Halmar Racing to Beat Hunger T-Shirt.
Beginning this Saturday night 6/27, OCFS race fans will be offered a rare, unique viewing opportunity. We will have a limited number of “Drive In” viewing spots available for purchase in the infield area. For the next several race events including the Twin 50 / USAC show race fans will have the option of watching the races from the Drive in or the Infield / Pit area.
Anthony Perrego continued his winning ways Saturday night at Orange County Fair Speedway, guiding Brian Smith's Superior Remodeling No. 44 TEO to victory in a Big Block Modified 30-lap feature race that was red flagged twice and wrecked half a dozen cars in a high speed backstretch mishap.
