"MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU" NIGHT AT ORANGE COUNTY FAIR SPEEDWAY
The racing stars competing at Orange County Fair Speedway (OCFS) are set for another exciting evening of stock car racing action, Saturday, May 4, on “May the Fourth be With You” Star Wars themed night. Headlining the program will be the 800-horsepower Big-Block Modifieds in a 30-lap feature race paying the winner $3,300.

Grant Hilfiger and Greg Sleight are this season’s Sportsman feature race winners, while Bobby Sleight Jr. won the inaugural 2019 Street Stock feature race. All are pointing to be at the front of their respective feature race fields this Saturday evening.
