Story By: JOHN SNYDER / ORANGE COUNTY FAIR SPEEDWAY – MIDDLETOWN, NY – The exciting DIRTcar-sanctioned Small-Block Modifieds hit the Orange County Fair Speedway clay on Saturday, April 22 for their inaugural 2023 outing. Upwards of three-dozen competitors will vie for starting positions in the 25-lap feature race that rewards $2,000 to the winner.
Anthony Perrego is the defending champion of this most-competitive racing division, having won a total of five Small-Block Modified (SBM) point championships, the last four consecutively. Currently tied with Brett Hearn for consecutive SBM titles, the popular Perrego will be out to become the sole proprietor of this distinction.
But he faces tough opposition from a field of top drivers, many of whom also race in Orange County’s DIRTcar Big-Block Modified division. Qualifying heat and last chance races will determine the field for the main event.
The Sportsman, Rookie Sportsman, and Street Stock divisions will complete the evening’s racing program with qualifying and feature races.
