Gary Balough, the legendary driver who exposed his "dirty" past last year in a tell all autobiography will be back home at OCFS to celebrate 100 years of racing at our Centennial Race Weekend. After releasing his book, interest in Balough's saga as a driver was up, and the disgraced legend has since been enjoying being a part of the world of motorsports again as a coach and mentor to Halmar Race Team drivers like Stewart Friesen.

Competitor Rules for Centennial Weekend and Schedule of Events
The Street Stock drivers took center stage in more ways than one last Saturday night at the Orange County Fair Speedway as the track presented its annual Marky Traverse Memorial feature event and also lauded its full fender competitors of yesteryear with their first-ever nostalgia night.
When Friesen rolls into Middletown NY for the big $100K show, he'll be hauling in more than just his no. 44 modified, as OCFS promoters have just revealed that Friesen and Eldora runner up, Sheldon Creed, will run at Middletown's Legendary "House of Power" in a special 10-Lap exhibition.
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.
