If high-speed dirt track racing excitement on a big five-eighths-mile speedway is what you crave, then the just-released 2022 schedule of action at Orange County Fair Speedway (OCFS) is tailor-made just for you. The traditional home of DIRTcar Big-Block Modified racing has set a total of 26 dates of on-track action, 21 of them featuring the 800-horsepower earthshaking Big-Blocks. “We’re the only track south of Albany to host the Big-Blocks, not just weekly, but also a couple Thursday night specials and of course the annual Eastern States 200,” says Brett Hearn, OCFS Director of Motorsports.
Following the on again-off again-on again shortened and restricted 2020 season, Orange County Fair Speedway kicked of its 72nd consecutive year of weekly stock car racing in April 2021 with a new format for the United Rental DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, weekly competition for the H.O. Penn Small-Block Modifieds, Arkel Motors Sportsman including the return of the introductory Precision Hydraulic & Oil Rookie Sportsman, and NAPA Northeast Parts Group Street Stocks.
