MIDDLETOWN, NY - Andy Bachetti shook off the bad luck that has plagued him at Orange County Fair Speedway in a big way Sunday afternoon.
The Sheffield, Mass., driver wired the field, leading from start-to-finish to win the inaugural National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) Short Track Super Series Fueled By VP big-block/small-block Modified event at the ‘Hard Clay Open’ presented by United Pump & Tank, East Coast Speed/ECS Auto and West Point Golf. The event was a co-promotion involving Brett Deyo of BD Motorsports Media LLC and track managers Michael Gurda IV and Howard Commander.
Bachetti, 38 years old, staved off the race-long advances of young Anthony Perrego, who succumbed to a flat right-rear tire in the final laps, and outdistanced defending Orange County track champion Tim Hindley, who drove from 19th to finish second in the Joe Sarvis-owned No. 94.
