Remote Controlled Racing at Eastern States Weekend 2019

Remote Controlled Racing at Eastern States Weekend 2019

Orange County Fair Speedway's "Little House of Power" is our newly constructed in 2018, Remote Control racing track that has officially been named "Victory RC Speedway".  The Victory name was once used for OCFS's 5/8 mile dirt track following WWII and used up until the late 1960s.  Victory RC Speedway now hosts weekly races in the warmer months, with indoor racing during the cooler months.  As part of our yearly Eastern States Weekend, we are holding special RC racing events at the little track, which also includes a fully stocked, Traxxas licensed RC shop, where participants can pick up replacement parts or get outfitted with a full vehicle for racing.  Winners will be eligible for cash prizes, and trophies will be awarded.  There is a $25 entry fee per racer, per race.  Continue reading for race schedule and RC racing rules.
