Orange County Fair Speedway - Dylan Madsen, Michael Giuliano

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Since the early weeks of the 2021 racing season, drivers with limited racing experience have gotten their proverbial feet wet by competing against each other in the Precision Hydraulic & Oil Rookie Sportsman division. This week, following their feature race, the Rookie Sportsman drivers will graduate into the Arkel Motors Sportsman ranks. Going into their final night racing each other, Dylan Madsen and Michael Giuliano lead this talented group of racing youngsters in Rookie points.

The Small-Block Modifieds will race in qualifying heats to determine the starting lineup for their 30-lap feature race.
