It is April in the Hudson Valley so that must mean it is time to go racing. Here in the Hudson Valley we are lucky enough to have two racing outlets we can enjoy. On Fridays, you can head to the hills of Ulster County and check out Dirt Track excitement at the Accord Speedway. On Saturdays you can travel to Orange County for Dirt Track racing at Orange County Fair Speedway.

Both tracks offer family entertainment for the season. There are a wide variety of special events that include specialty nights and races that you won't want to miss. Refreshments and food are available or you can also tailgate on your own.

This Friday is opening night at Accord Speedway.

This Saturday is opening night at OCFS.

If you can't get there this weekend for the season openers, you can put this local racing excitement on the calendar for the whole summer. Get ready to get dirty: it's time to go racing, Hudson Valley. Good luck to all the 2018 drivers and their teams.
