From the minis to the the experts, flat track racing caters to all ages.

On July 29, flat track racing came to the Orange County Fair Speedway. Both quads and bikes took their turn on the hard clay vying for the checkered flag. These are exciting races to watch, either from the newly remodeled grandstand or from the pits, where the fans can get close to the bike, quads and drivers.

Orange County Fair Speedway also offers motocross, which is quite different from flat track. Riders race over a track of hills and jumps. Upcoming motocross races will be taking place on Sept. 25 and Oct. 16. Practice takes place every Wednesday and Friday. Go to orangecountyfairspeedway.net for more information and a schedule.

And don’t forget the dirt track races that take place every Saturday night. Orange County Fair Speedway has so much great racing and so many great shows throughout the season, and it’s right in our back yard. Makes a great family night out.
