Hoar Holds off Leighton Wins Airborne Spring Green

Brian Hoar of Williston, VT led all 100 laps of the 36th Furniture World of VT Spring Green 100 at Airborne Speedway Saturday, but his second straight ACT LateModel Tour win was no romp. The defending champion and current point leader was closely pursued by Brent Dragon for the first half of the race and Brad Leighton of Center Harbor, NH over the final 50 laps.

Leighton got the jump on Hoar on a restart with 22 laps remaining and led nearly all the way around the Plattsburgh half mile before Hoar got a nose underneath at the line. The pair swapped the lead again navigating turns one and two before Hoar took the lead back for keeps.

John Donahue of Graniteville started eighth and finished third. Brent Dragon and Joey Polewarczyk completed the top five. Mark Lamberton of Mooers Forks was sixth. The race had six cautions including a tire check for abnormal tire wear for the whole field on lap 35.
