Spring may seem a bit far off at the moment, but let's face, it time flies. 2021 is in the rearview mirror and it is time to start planning outdoor fun in 2022. There will be concerts and county fairs, trips with friends and festivals to attend, and yes there will be racing.

Everyone who knows me knows I am a race fan. I come from a long line of local weekend racers.  I have never actually driven a race car, but I have gotten to drive on a track or two. My racing family lives in the midwest which would be a bit of a drive for a Saturday night, so I enjoy my racing in Middletown and Accord.

We are lucky to have two great dirt tracks in the Hudson Valley, Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown and Accord Speedway in Accord. Both tracks offer a great season of racing which makes great family entertainment.
