Outlaws to Return to Orange County Fair Speedway

MIDDLETOWN, NY (May 19) -- The World of Outlaws Sprint Series has replaced its July 26th date at New Egypt Speedway with a $51,600 event at Orange County Fair Speedway, series President Ted Johnson announced Wednesday.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Series' fire-breathing, mudslinging sprint cars raced at the Orange County Fair's semi-banked, 5/8-mile oval once every year between 1983 and 1999. Defending and 18-time series champion Steve Kinser won five of those "A" Features, and Stevie Smith won the last three. Mark Kinser, who also won three main events at Orange County Fair Speedway, set the single-lap record with a 132.058-M.P.H. lap on June 1, 1997. Three-time series champion Sammy Swindell won two "A" Features at Orange County.

Tickets for the World of Outlaws Sprint Series event at Orange County Fair Speedway featuring the "Mean 15" go on sale at the speedway office June 1st. Advanced sale reserved tickets can be purchased for $32, while the advanced sale general admission price is $30. This race will be included in the package for all 2004 Orange County Fair Speedway season ticket holders. Since the Orange County Fair will be held in late July, the past practice regarding advance sale tickets including fair admission will be in effect. Fans must purchase tickets by July 24th to save the $8 adult fair admission. Adult general admission day-of-show tickets for the drive-in can be purchased for $30. However, the drive-in ticket does not include access to the fair.

Orange County Fair Speedway will combine the World of Outlaws Sprint Series event with the DIRT 358 Modifieds to complete the double-header with both open-wheel classes running 25-lap "A" Features. The open-wheel, open-cockpit special event will be staged in conjunction with the 164th Annual Orange County Fair, which will be held July 21-August 1.

The Orange County Fair Speedway gates will open at 5 p.m., with the World of Outlaws Sprint Series qualifying session scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m.
