Airborne Park Speedway Unveils Exciting 2015 Schedule
NASCAR, ACT, PASS, MRS organizations highlight 62nd season
For Immediate Release APS-010915-1
PLATTSBURGH, NY – Historic Airborne Park Speedway has released a lineup of 17 action-packed events for its 62nd season of stock car racing season in 2015. The racy 4/10-mile D-shaped asphalt oval will again host Saturday night NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action, along with special events from some of the most recognizable short track racing organizations in North America.
An innovative approach was taken when building the 2015 schedule, and aims to give fans, families, and racing teams the ability to ease into the spring and summer on a bi-weekly basis before weekly Saturday night racing begins in June. The calendar was developed while working with other tracks and series in the region including partner track Devil's Bowl Speedway in West Haven, Vermont.
The curtain opens on the four NASCAR Whelen All-American Series championship divisions on Saturday night, May 2 with a 100-lap feature race for the headline J&S Steel Modified class, with Late Models, Renegades, and Mini Modifieds also on the card.
The tradition-filled "Spring Green" event returns to Airborne on Saturday, May 16, as the American-Canadian Tour Late Models make their first of three appearances. The 115-lap event kicks off a special Triple Crown championship at Airborne for the Quebec-based Série ACT and is expected to see an influx of racers and fans from both sides of the border.
The ground-pounders of the Valenti Modified Racing Series return for a 100-lap throwdown on Saturday, May 30 as the open-wheel aces return to Plattsburgh. The event also showcases the Renegade and Mini Modified divisions as well as double features for Airborne's own J&S Steel Modifieds.
The weekly Saturday night schedule opens on June 13 with a 100-lap race for the fan favorite Renegades. The annual Egglefield Ford/Unique Cigs "Battle of Plattsburgh" 76-lap Independence Day Modified race and massive fireworks show will be held on Saturday, July 4.
The biggest event of the year will be the third annual "International" weekend event, as it returns with a whole new look on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19. The American-Canadian Tour returns for a 200-lap race – the second leg of the Quebec Triple Crown – while the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models make their Airborne debut with their own 200-lapper.
Saturday night dates through the balance of the summer include double feature events for the Modified and Late Model divisions, a second 100-lap Renegade feature, and special three-segment race for the Mini Modifieds. The championship season concludes with a two-day event on Labor Day weekend; practice sessions and "Shootout" races for non-winners will be followed by a pit party for fans and racers on Friday, September 4, with championship finales – headlined by a 100-lap Modified special – to be held on Saturday, September 5.
The American-Canadian Tour will crown the champions of its U.S. Tour, the Série ACT, and the Quebec Triple Crown at the annual "Fall Foliage 200" on Saturday, October 3 to wrap up the Airborne season.
Airborne Park Speedway is located on Broderick Road in South Plattsburgh, NY, one mile from Exit 36 on the Interstate 87 Northway.
