County Executives To Compete in Go-Kart Race to Help Kids


Who is the fastest County Executive? Rockland County Executive Ed Day or Orange County Executive Steve Neuhuas? Find out Thursday, January 27th!

Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus and Rockland County Executive Ed Day will compete in a three-lap go-kart race as part of the Charitable Pro-Am Races on Thursday, January 27th at the Palisades Mall in West Nyack.

The event, which is being hosted by Palisades Autobahn Indoor Speedway and Orange County Fair Speedway (OCFS), starts at 7:00 p.m. It will benefit the Penguin Plunge of Nyack, which helps the families of serious ill children pay for medical bills and other expenses.

“I have a wonderful working relationship with County Executive Day and consider him a friend,” Neuhaus said. “I look forward to competing against him at the Pro-Am while raising money for a worthwhile cause. It should be a great night of racing and I’m sure that our exhibition race will not disappoint the fans.” 

Rockland County Executive Ed Day said, “I am thrilled to be able to join my good friend, Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus in this racing fundraiser to help the Penguin Plunge. The Penguin Plunge is a fantastic charity that helps the families of seriously ill children pay for medical bills and other expenses and I urge folks to come out and show their support during the race. My thanks to the sponsors of this event and to Autobahn Indoor Speedway for hosting my showdown on the track with Steve Neuhaus. May the best County Executive win!”
