MIDDLETOWN, NY – Rewards will be plentiful for drivers competing in the ‘Hard Clay Open’ on Sunday, April 8 at Orange County Fair Speedway.
The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Halmar International North Region event offers a lucrative, non-top-heavy pay structure for the STSS big-block/small-block Modified contingent. And the riches keep on growing.
A field of 30 cars will take the green at the Legendary House of Power for the ‘Hard Clay Open’ event. STSS and Orange County Fair Speedway management have posted a minimum pay structure of $30,400 for racers: $5,000 to the winner, $1,000 for 10th and $500 to take the green flag.
Grand Rental Station, located at 388 East Main Street in Middletown, will once again offer an event-specific $500 cash Hard Charger Award for the driver advancing the most positions from their scheduled starting position to the finish of the 50-lap ‘Hard Clay Open’ main event.

At every STSS Halmar International North Region event this season, John Brown’s Land Hoe Maintenance of Danbury, Conn., has offered $200 cash to the Hard Charger Award recipient. Find Land Hoe Maintenance online at www.landhoemaintenance.com.
This means a huge $700 cash will be up for grabs to a competitor marching through the field at the ‘Hard Clay Open’ event!
Superior Remodeling, based in Slate Hill, will reward the STSS Modified leader at halfway – lap 25 – a cash bonus of $200.
Each of the STSS Modified heat-race winners will take home $50 cash thanks to Rock Fantasy Hard Rock, Metal and Classic Rock Concert & Smoke Shop proprietor Stephen Keeler. Rock Fantasy, located at 75 West Main Street in Middletown, can be found on the web at www.rockfantasy.com.
A long line of product awards and certificates are also set for STSS Modifieds placing throughout the field.
The ‘Hard Clay Open’ is Event No. 1 of 10 for the STSS Halmar International North Region with a $12,500 championship looming at year-end.
Joining the STSS Modifieds on the ‘Hard Clay Open’ doubleheader are the Orange County Fair Speedway Crate 602 Sportsman racing for $1,000 to win and $100 to take the green under weekly track rules and procedures.
