Special Night Of Remembrance & Weekly Points Racing Continues Saturday At Orange County

Story By: JOHN SNYDER / ORANGE COUNTY FAIR SPEEDWAY – MIDDLETOWN, NY – Weekly points racing continues this coming Saturday, May 14, at Orange County Fair Speedway on Biker Weekend presented by Interstate Batteries 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 the NAPA Northeast Parts Group Street Stocks.

It’s also a night to remember two of our Speedway family that have passed away.

Joey Falanga was an Orange County Fair Speedway competitor who lost his life in a highway accident. His family and friends are honoring his memory with the 30-lap, $3,000 to win “Joey Falanga Memoria Race.” for the Big-Block Modifieds.

Whitey Memmelaar was a long-time car owner in Sportsman and Small-Block Modified divisions, with many top drivers wheeling his famous No. 45 race cars. Later, he served in several capacities at the Speedway. Orange County is proud to remember Whitey Memmelaar with the 45-lap, $4,500 to win Whitey Memmelaar Memorial Race for the Small-Block Modifieds.

Qualifying races will set the fields for each of the open-wheel division feature races. 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 $8,500. The winner of the Arkel Motors Sportsman 20- lap feature nets $1,000. The NAPA Northeast Parts Group Street Stocks will take to the track in a 15-lap, $500 to win feature race.
