Orange County Fair Speedway is one of the oldest operating dirt tracks in the United States. The dirt oval was originally constructed in 1857 for horse racing until a group of visionaries decided to stage an automobile race during the annual fair in 1919. With the first race being a success it became an integral part of the fairgrounds thereafter. The Speedway brings in several thousand fans and drivers, who come to watch one of the many divisions: including Sportsman, Small Blocks, Big Block Modifieds and sprint cars. During the season there are more than 30 races including the season ending Eastern States Weekend, that includes the 200-lap championship race. Stock car racing and Orange County, NY go hand in hand as there is no other track with history as rich as the Orange County Fair Speedway.
