FULTON, NY – (By Dave Medler) – The countdown is officially on for the 28th Annual Outlaw 200 Weekend on October 4-5. In the next month we will be looking back at the stars and cars that help build it into one of the most prestigious Modified races in the entire Northeast. We will also be looking forward to this year’s event as we get set to add a new winner to the history books.
On October 6, 1986 Bub Benway saw a concept and a dream to have a big race in his wife Victoria’s name come to life. Thanks to John Flock who was at that event with the media, related 88 cars signed in the pits for that inaugural, “Victoria 200.” It rained on Friday and Saturday, pushing qualifying to Sunday to set the field. On a damp and cold Monday evening the 200 was run. Flock said it was a bare knuckle, drive as hard as you can, “All-Star Race.” When the checkers flew, New Jersey’s Billy Pauch Stood in victory lane.
The history of this event, reads like a who’s who in Modified racing. Who will put their name in the history books this year? A former winner? a driver who has come close before, only to fall short? Or will it be a totally unexpected first time winner?
