OCFS DIRT TRACK RACING

Orange County Fair Speedway is the oldest operating dirt track in the United States.

Orange County Fair Speedway is the oldest operating dirt track in the United States. The 5/8 mile dirt oval was originally constructed in 1857 for horse racing until a group of visionaries decided to stage an automobile race during the annual fair in 1919.

Today, the track boasts all new facilities including luxury boxes, VIP tent and stage, quality food vendors, covered grandstands, with gift shop and autograph area, grandstands with covered party deck, bleachers, the 31st Lap Tavern, and Live Music Tent. The Speedway brings in several thousand fans and drivers each week who come to watch 850 plus horsepower V8 race cars compete for the Big Block Modified Championship. During the season there are more than 20 races including the longest running championship weekend in racing, Eastern States Weekend, which culminates in a 200 lap finale.
