Motor Woes Stall Tremont’s Airborne Bid
For immediate release AS-081010-1
South Plattsburgh – A large field of Modifieds is expected for tonight’s Tri-Track Modified Series 100 at Airborne, but six-time Albany-Saratoga track champion and current Devil’s Bowl point leader Kenny Tremont of West Sand Lake won’t be among them.
“I blew two motors over the weekend, one at Albany Saratoga and another at Lebanon Valley and then lost the power steering Sunday at Devil’s Bowl,” Tremont reported. “I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. Airborne is a great place to race, but four races in one week after what I’ve been through is more than I can handle. I’m looking forward to coming up to Plattsburgh for the Mohawk Casino Fall Foliage race next month.”
Tremont’s closest rivals, Keith Flach of Ravena, Mike Bruno of Castleton, VT, Marc Johnson of Guilderland and Don Scarborough of Brandon, VT will compete. Scarborough, an Airborne regular this season who sits 5th in the point standings behind Patrick Dupree, Martin Roy, Leon Gonyo and Greg Atkins, won the first race of the six-race Tri-Track Series at Devil’s Bowl in May.
Tonight’s event, presented by Plattsburgh Ford and Haley’s Lumber, pays $2,000-to-win. Thirty Modifieds will qualify for the starting line-up.
The NAPA Mini Modifieds and Monster Energy Bombers will also be in action. Grandstands open at 5 p.m. Post time is 7 p.m. Admission is $15/adults. Kids 12 and under – admitted free.
