Kevin Orlando will never forget his first win. It came in 2005 at Riverhead Raceway in what was only his sixth race. “Your first win is always the best win,” Orlando said.

Orlando got his start at Riverhead 14 years ago when he raced Go-Karts. In 2005 he raced in his first adult race and placed eighth while racing in his father’s charger car. He now races in the modified division, where he’s 22nd in the point standings.

Orlando said Riverhead Raceway is a challenging track.

“If you can race at Riverhead, you can race anywhere,” he said.

When he’s not racing Orlando enjoys working on cars and hanging with his friends. His parents and girlfriend Christina have been the biggest supporters in his career, he said.

  • Hiya very nice web site!! Guy .. Beautiful .. Wonderful .. I will bookmark your website and take the feeds also

  • According to my observation, after a foreclosed home is available at a sale, it is common for that borrower in order to still have some sort ofthat remaining unpaid debt on the bank loan. There are many loan merchants who try and have all service fees and liens paid back by the following buyer. Even so, depending on specific programs, restrictions, and state regulations there may be a few loans that are not easily settled through the exchange of personal loans. Therefore, the obligation still falls on the customer that has acquired his or her property foreclosed on. Many thanks sharing your ideas on this web site.
