Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …did you know……that auto racing and motorcycle racing came to the NYS Fairgrounds in the early 1900’s when such renowned names as Barney Oldfield, Ralph DePalma and Wilbur Shaw brought their speedy autos to town to race around the oval dirt track at breathtaking speeds approaching 60 miles per hour.  Through the years, auto racing has been a staple at the NYS Fair, from the Indianapolis-style racing that featured many of the biggest stars on that circuit half a century ago, to the present day stock car racing.   Beyond the NYS Fair, racing continues at this venue.  In 1972, DIRT Week was formed bringing Big-Block Modified cars to the oval track at the Fairgrounds.   This year marks year 42 for “racing’s biggest party” … DIRT Week! … running from October 9 through October 13, 2013 at the Empire Expo Center/NYS Fairgrounds.

Please find this week’s edition of the Friday Facts here.
