Dupree reels in Quenneville before record Airborne crowd

Bushey snaps Wood’s Sportsman win streak

South Plattsburgh, NY – Patrick Dupree chased down Vince Quenneville and Don Scarborough and made the winning pass on the backstretch on the next to last lap in the DIRTcar Modified 30-lap main event at Airborne Speedway.


Dupree’s third win of the season was witnessed by one of the largest crowds in Airborne’s 58-year history. More than 4,600 fans attended.


Thirty-one cars started the 30-lap event sponsored by High Peaks Dental, Pepsi and Trim’s Mobile Home Service, but a chain reaction crash on the backstretch brought out the red flag and whittled the field. Rodger Labreche, Cameron Grady, Daniel Brown, Chris Cayea, Pat McGrail and number two point-man George Foley all left on the hook and did not return.


When racing resumed, Quenneville, who started 3rd, took command with Adam Bartemy and Scarborough in close pursuit. At the halfway mark, Quenneville had opened up a six car-length lead. Dupree sat seventh and was working Martin Roy the high side for sixth.

His rally was assisted by a caution on lap 22. Two laps later he had passed Roy, Martin Hebert, Matt Woodruff and Bartemy and set sights on Scarborough.


“I think everybody got loose and we maintained,” Dupree said. “I thought after the restart I might have a shot. We pounded her in. It’s great to win before a crowd like this.”


“I made the decision to go with the right rear I’d been running instead of putting a new one on,” Quenneville said shaking his head. “I knew Scarborough wasn’t going to try me on the outside, but he (Dupree) came up on me out there in a hurry.”


Roy passed Woodruff on the final lap for fourth. Positions 6-10 went to Leon Gonyo, Bartemy, Hebert, Pierre Berthiaume and Andy Heywood.


Late-race yellows also influenced the outcome of the Sportsman and Renegade features. In the J&S Steel Sportsman 25-lap feature, three restarts were needed to complete the final three laps. Robin Wood, seeking his fifth win in a row, was the leader on the final restart with Bushey alongside. Wood got off turn two with a car-length advantage, but Bushey powered off the rim of turn four and won by two feet.


“Progressive banking – you gotta love it,” Bushey said in victory lane. “He tried to pinch me up high, but I had the bite I needed.” Danny Sullivan held off Wood at the point for several laps, yielded the lead and then regained it before contact with Travis Bruno, sitting third in the pocket while Wood raced outside, sent them spinning on lap 22. Jamy Begor wound up third.


Boutin, the defending Versatile Trailer Sales Renegade champion, stayed ahead of Gordon on two restarts with three laps to go, but a third yellow was a charm for Gordon’s H20 Well-Drilling machine. He led Boutin to the line by a wheel on the outside for his fourth win.


Josh Leclaire, 18, of Plattsburgh, dominated the NAPA Mini Modified feature for his first win. Kris Clark was second, Erick Sayles third. Travis Sherman won the Busch Bomber feature.


Airborne’s Saturday, July 9 card includes a make-up Mini Modified feature and a six-car, six lap dash for $600 for the top two cars from each Ernie’s Discount Tools Modified heat.



Modified Feature: 1) Patrick Dupree 2) Vince Quenneville 3) Don Scarborough 4) Martin Roy 5) Matt Woodruff 6) Leon Gonyo 7) Adam Bartemy 8) Martin Hebert  9) Pierre Berthiaume 10) Andy Heywood

Ben Rowe scores PASS North Firecracker 150 win

For Immediate Release: Media contact Norm Desjardins – racewithpass@yahoo.com


First PASS North checker of 2011 for the four time PASS North Champion


Canaan NH (7/3) Ben Rowe reclaimed the lead from Richie Dearborn on lap 116 of Saturday night's Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Firecracker 150 at Canaan Fair Speedway and raced on for his first PASS North win of the season. Alex Gingras and Scott Dragon both earned career best finishes, crossing under the checkers in second and third.


Richie Dearborn and Rowe led the field to the first green flag and it was Dearborn jumping out front early but a red flag at lap seven for Jon Dickerman's slow roll on the back stretch put the action on hold briefly. Dearborn resumed control until Lonnie Sommerville charged by on the outside. Dearborn reclaimed the lead after a lap fifteen caution and kept the point until Rowe reeled him in and drove by for the lead at lap 28.


The field stayed clean and green until lap 83 when yellow flag number two flew for Scott Alexander's spin, followed by another caution for Chris Wilkes trip into the front stretch wall,ending a strong run for the Vermonter. Dearborn took advantage of the high line to take yet another turn out front, with Rowe, Gingras, Johnny Clark and Sommerville all giving chase..


Dearborn and Rowe gapped the field, both drivers charging hard for their first win of 2011. Caution number four brought the pair back to the field, and the high line gave Rowe the opportunity he needed. Rowe put the RMR four back out front and Johnny Clark slipped by Dearborn for second but contact from the 33 sent Clark off turn two. Dearborn received the black flag for his part in the incident and retired for the night. Meanwhile the sparks continued to fly when Clark and Donnie Lashua got together, dropping the pair back in the line up.


The front of the field was shuffled by the on track fireworks. Rowe kept his lead but Gingras was now second with Dragon,Donnie Whitten,Sommerville and Travis Benjamin racing in the top five. Rowe clearly had the fast car, but the battle for second on back was a good one. Gingras took control of that spot but Donnie Whitten and Travis Benjamin were battling to find a way around Dragon for the final podium position. With three to go Whitten tried a bottom move that didn’t work out, sending him around and setting up a three lap shoot out to the checkers. There was no beating Rowe on this night, and when the final flag flew it was Rowe,Gingras,Dragon,Benjamin,and Sommerville in the top five.


Richie Dearborn, Ben Rowe and Johnny Clark all claimed heat race wins.Nine cars completed all 150 green flag laps.


Andy Shaw made it three starts and three wins in the PASS Mod feature, using the high side to take the lead from Dana Reed on lap fifteen of the open wheelers forty lapper. Reed came up one spot short in second and Mitch Miller earned a solid third.


Sumner Sessions and Mark Lundblad Jr. led the field to the green but the field didn’t stay that way long as a series of early cautions marred the action. Sessions, Lundblad, Miller, Scott McDaniel and Reed all took turns leading early but once the defending series champ got out front the race stayed clean and green. At the checkers it was Shaw by half a front stretch. Dana Reed and Scott McDaniel scored in the heat races.


The PASS Super Late Models and Mods move on to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough Maine on Saturday July 9th . Post time is 6:00 PM.
