FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:July 12, 2010
Orange County Speedway’s Firecracker 262 gave fans the sparks and excitement that they were promised and so much more. They received a night full of fireworks, beating, banging, and some unexpected dumping. The heart-throbbing action is only expected to intensify, with the running of the OCS 255, Saturday, July 17.
A full-blown rivalry has developed in the Late Model division after the Firecracker 262. Drivers Terry Dease and Joey Mahanes concluded their nights’ early, after they were both black flagged. The two had been battling all night when their tempers began to escalate. The on-track skirmish finally ended with Mahanes rubbing Dease again and as Dease ended up hurtling into the wall. An entertaining altercation between Dease and Mahanes ensued, but it was quickly diffused.
The two drivers are currently second and third in the points standings. This rivalry has created an even more chaotic and dramatic scene in the points race. It will be interesting to see how it will all unfold during the OCS 255 and throughout the rest of the season.
On top of all of the Late Model action, five more divisions are scheduled to run, which will ensure another spectacular night of racing here at OCS.
The OCS 255 line up will consist of Late Model Stocks, Limited Sportsman, Grand Stocks, Street Stocks, Modifieds, and the Virginia Mini-Cups. Final practice is anticipated to start at 2:30 p.m., Qualifying at 5:15 p.m., and racing starting at 7 p.m.
The front ticket gates will open at 6 p.m., but fans are welcome to come early for final practice and qualifying by entering through the front ticket office.
Tickets will be $10 for adults, $5 for students 11 to 17, while kids 10 and under are free. Senior citizens (65 plus) and Mariah Parham are $5. Anyone with a valid Military ID, University ID, Fire Department ID, or law enforcement ID can also gain admission for only $5.
There are also a limited amount of air conditioned VIP seats located in the tower of turns three and four. They are available for an amazing price of only $20 per seat.
OCS would also like to send a special thanks out to Roger Nutter, of Maple View Farms. After winning the Support US Armed Forces 50/50 Drawing last race, Nutter generously donated back his $483 of winnings to the patriotic organization.
