RPW Column By: MIKE TRAVERSE / RPW – MIDDLETOWN, NY – The Orange County Fair Speedway racing family is mourning the recent announcements of the losses of famed car owner Tony Ferraiuolo and Modified/Limited Sportsman competitor Christopher ‘Tiny’ Milano.
Mr. Ferraiuolo’s #73 cars were some of the best known and most winningest cars in the 70’s up to the 80’s. The drivers who spent time in the 73 includes such legendary names as Gary Balough, Whip Mulligan, Bobby Bottcher, Billy Osmun, Sammy Beavers, Merv Treichler and Anthony Ferraiuolo IV.
In recent years, he was a fixture at the OCFS Nostalgia Night festivities and he was always smiling and enjoying himself.
Tiny was a racer at OCFS from the 60’s into the early 80’s, first in the Limited Sportsman division and later with the Modifieds. He was known for his very clean and sharp looking #27 cars and his loyalty to the speedway. He collected one win in the Limited Sportsman during his career.
Race Pro Weekly extends it’s sympathies and condolences to the Ferraiuolo and Milano families. You gentlemen will not be forgotten and your contributions to the racing scene will always be remembered.
