After leading for quite a few laps of the 76 lap Summer Championship race at OCFS on July 2nd, Matt Sheppard eventually finished 2nd to Anthony Perrego.
Anthony Perrego is the defending champion of both the United Rentals Big Block Modifieds and the H.O. Penn Small Block Modified divisions at the Orange County Fair Speedway. The soft-spoken Anthony made a large statement Saturday night that he will again be in serious contention for both titles as he raced to victories in both the Modifieds and Small Block Modifieds.
The track was great Saturday night and modified racers put on a great show. Matt Sheppard got the win, his fourth but Anthony Perrego sure made it interesting at the end. As did Tanner Vandoren as he put on a show with a late race charge to finish third. All three of those guys were quick in winning their heat races as well. Max McLaughlin was quick early and it’s just a matter time before he gets a win. There are two more chances for drivers to get into the top 12 to race for the $30,000 point fund.
It has become a yearly tradition at the Orange County Fair Speedway to have a Saturday race night
during the season to acknowledge the construction industry. And the 2022 season is no different. On July 9th, it will be
Construction Night at OCFS.
The night's sponsors are United Rentals, UDIG-NY, Orange & Rockland Utilities and E. Tetz & Sons.
Only 3 Races Left For Drivers To Qualify For the $30,000 OCFS Championship
After Anthony Perrego won the holdover Joey Falanga Memorial feature, it was Chris Shultz taking the regularly scheduled United Rentals DIRTcar Modified feature, holding off Perrego. It was the first win for Shultz since 2014 and his 15th career Modified win.
It started out as a simple concept. Have a race night a week during the season when the weather was warmer and have some of the greats from the long history of the Orange County Fair Speedway return for a night. Fans would get to see and talk with these drivers and owners and they would spend hours talking over past times with their fellow competitors.
