Mod Dozen Join Orange County Mod Crown Chase

MIDDLETOWN, NY June 27)……..Headlining the Saturday, July 2 racing program at Orange County Fair Speedway is the 76-lap Summer Championship feature race paying $7,600 to the winner.  That in itself is a big deal.  Perhaps equally important at the race’s conclusion, the winner noted, and the overall driver points compiled, the 12 drivers who will battle for the 2022 United Rentals DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Championship will be determined.  

The top five drivers in the point standings and up to seven 2022 feature race winners are eligible for the championship chase. Currently, six drivers have won feature races. If the Summer Championship victor has already won a feature, any open slots will revert to the next highest drivers in the point standings not already included.

Joining the United Rental DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds on the program will be the H.O. Penn Small-Block Modifieds, Arkel Motors Sportsman, and Precision Hydraulics & Oil Rookie Sportsman divisions. The Small-Block Modifieds and Sportsman will go to the post in qualifying and feature races; the Rookie Sportsman will compete in a single feature.

Racing on July 2 and all subsequent scheduled races except for the season ending Eastern States Weekend will begin at 7:00 pm.  

For fans, Grandstand and Drive-In gates open at 5:00 pm.  For the Summer Championship, reserved seating admission or Drive-In parking is $33.  General admission is $28, Senior/Military $24, Party Deck $150 (minimum 2, maximum 4).
