Story By: CHRIS MOORE / SHORT TRACK SUPER SERIES – MIDDLETOWN, NY – Finale, fast-forward. For the third consecutive weekend, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco has fallen victim to rain, this time at Orange County Fair Speedway.

As the final round of the STSS River Valley Builders North Region championship $15,000 battle, the decision was made to decide the final standings on the track.
The 50-lap STSS Modified event offers $10,000 minimum to the winner thanks to www.bdrspeed.com and $500 bonuses to each of the top-10 finishers thanks to Behrent’s Performance Warehouse (must display decal to be eligible).
Joining the STSS Modifieds on the five-eighths-mile oval will be Crate 602 Sportsman, under OCFS rules, competing for $1,000 to win. This will be a draw/redraw event.
