Tues. 9/22 will be the final Tuesday Night Test and Tune session at OCFS for the 2020 season. While the track's been shutdown, the OCFS crew has been using the Test and Tunes as an opportunity to tune our track prep process and really work at cutting dust and making a great racing surface. All in all, track management is happy to report that it has been a success.
In anticipation of a return to racing in 2020 (for ESW 2020? stay tuned), catch up on the shortened 2020 season of Saturday Night racing at OCFS with these race recap videos. Full events can also be purchased, Video-On-Demand style in the "Live Streaming" section.
With county fairs across New York State, cancelled for the 2020 season, you might be wondering how you’re going to get your fried Oreo fix? Sure, you can get a burger, hot dogs and some other fair classics at one of your favorite local eateries, but it’s just somehow not the same as visiting vendors at the fair. The Orange County Fair Drive-Thru Fair Food Festival is the socially distanced answer to any fair foodie’s prayers! The event scheduled to take place on Sept. 24-27 and Oct. 1-4 at the Orange County fairgrounds, in Middletown NY, will feature a “Drive-Thru” style format where fairgoers enter the grounds in their vehicle, drive up to designated “stops” or areas with certain types of fair foods and receive window service like a classic drive-in diner!
Last Night's (9/1) Tuesday Night Test and Tune was yet another successful test of OCFS's new track prep procedures as well as being a packed house. The pits were at max capacity for what is allowed at a practice session! As things at OCFS are still up in the air regarding a return to regular operations, track management is announcing another Tuesday Night Test and Tune for Tuesday, September 8th, from 6-9PM.

Please leave a message if you get the machine, your call will be returned. The cost of the session is $150 per team.

July 30th, 2020 – It is with our deepest regrets that we must inform our fans and competitors that we cannot at this time return to our regularly scheduled Saturday Night racing events. Saturday, August 1st is no longer on our schedule, but we are not calling it quits for the season. Racing will return to OCFS when we can get our Drive-In sections opened back up.
A three-division racing card is on tap this coming Saturday, July 25 at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York. Topping the program will be the 467-cubic inch United Rentals DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds competing in a series of qualifying races setting the field for their 30-lap feature race.
