Story By: JOHN SNYDER / ORANGE COUNTY FAIR SPEEDWAY – MIDDLETOWN, NY – The second week of racing continues this coming Saturday evening, April 30, with a four division program, including the United Rentals DIRTcar Big- Block Modifieds, the H.O. Penn Small-block Modifieds, the Arkel Motors Sportsman, and making their first season outing the popular and unpredictable NAPA Northeast Parts Group Street Stocks.
The Street Stocks will go to the post in a pair of 15-lap feature races, each paying the winner $500. The nearby Texas Roadhouse as well as Miller & Miller Poleline Construction are the night’s sponsors.
Qualifying races will set the fields for each of the open-wheel division feature races. The United Rentals DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, will race in a 30-lap feature, with a victor’s prize of $3,000.
The H.O. Penn Small-Block Modifieds have a 25-lap feature on tap, with the winner taking home $2,000. Should a driver win both Modified features, he or she will be rewarded with a $1,000 Wicked Truck Worx Sweep bonus, bringing his or her total winnings to $6,000.
The Arkel Motors Sportsman—which closely resemble the Modified cars but have restricted engines—will settle things in a 20-lap, $1,000-to win feature.
