Renegade Mechanics Race, “Bake a Cake Night” all part of the fun
PLATTSBURGH, NY – Airborne Park Speedway is offering fans double the racing at half the price on Saturday, August 1. Aaron’s Sales & Lease and Liquor & Wine Warehouse will present twin 30-lap Modified races with buy-one-get-one-free tickets for just $12.00.
The double feature races will kick off the final stretch drive toward the track championships for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series presented by Yandow Sales & Service and John Deere. Hometown driver Nick Heywood is aiming at an unprecedented fourth consecutive title in the J&S Steel Modified division and holds a 23-point lead on Clintonville’s Greg Atkins. Nine different drivers have visited victory lane through the first 10 feature races, including outstanding rookie Danny Sullivan of Morrisonville, who earned his career-first win in last week’s Mid-Season Championship race; Sullivan ranks third overall.
The Key R-D Trailer Sales Renegade division saw a shake-up in the standings as previous leader Jason McClatchie of Plattsburgh fell to fourth place. Former champion Richie Turner of Fairfax, VT took over the top spot, but is followed closely by Shawn Duquette, defending champion Robert Gordon, and McClatchie, who are all within 27 markers. The Renegades will run their regular 25-lap feature race before turning the controls over to their crew members for the annual Mechanics Race.
