MIDDLETOWN, NY (May 12)......The fifth evening of the 2015 season of weekly stock car racing at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York is set for Saturday, May 16. The night’s action will include five divisions in qualifying and feature event races, with the mighty Big-BlockModifieds headlining the program. Also on the card will be the very competitive Small-Block Modifieds, the unpredictable Sportsman, the full-bodied Street Stocks, and the four-cylinder Thunder Trucks. For the youngsters in attendance, the Orange County Kids Club has special activities scheduled.

In the Modified division, the four previous feature races have produced four different winners as young Anthony Perrego won on opening night, Chuck McKee, Jeff Heotzler, and Jerry Higbie---all former champions---also have been victorious on the Hard Clay five-eighths-mile speedway. Defending Modified division champion Tim Hindley is still looking for his first win of 2015, but his consistent finishes have him in second place in the point standings, just a single marker behind Higbie.

Jesco, Holiday Inn of Middletown, and Tony Monaco Landscaping are the sponsors of the May 16 race meet.

Admission prices for the May 16 race meet remain at $14 adults, $12 seniors, and $1 for children 12 and under. Parking on the Fairgrounds is free. The full night of racing begins promptly at 7:00 pm.

Looking ahead, no racing is scheduled for Saturday, May 23, but action returns to the Hard Clay track on Saturday, May 30, with a dynamite lineup that includes Modifieds, Sportsman, Rookie Sportsman, Street Stocks, Thunder Trucks, Four-Cylinder Cars, and a return engagement of the CRSA Sprint Cars.

Then on Saturday, June 6, it’s the annual Nostalgia Night when Orange County Fair Speedway celebrates its glorious racing history. Many top drivers and car owners from past seasons will be on hand that evening, with an extended intermission scheduled to allow fans to meet and get autographs from their racing heroes of yesteryear. In addition, both the Atlantic Coast Old Timers and the Northeast Vintage Modifieds will have cars on display along the Midway and in exhibition races on the track. This is a night to come to the track early, enjoy the races, and revisit the past at Orange County Fair Speedway, among the oldest auto racing venues in the country.
