Spring Championships Decided at Airborne Park Speedway on Saturday Night
$1,000-to-win Renegade 100 highlights Plattsburgh Ford/Aaron's Night
For Immediate Release APS-061015-1
PLATTSBURGH, NY – Weekly Saturday night stock car racing returns to Airborne Park Speedway on June 13 at 7:00 p.m. with a big event presented by Plattsburgh Ford and Aaron's. A 100-lap main event for the fan-favorite Key R-D Trailer Sales Renegade division highlights the program, which will also see four title winners crowned in the Yandow Sales & Service/John Deere Spring Championship Series.
The Spring Championship Series will crown an overall champion from the six-race bi-weekly early season NASCAR Whelen All-American Series schedule between Airborne Park Speedway and Devil's Bowl Speedway. Five drivers are mathematically alive for the Renegade title entering Saturday's 100-lapper, though it will likely come down to a two-man battle. Defending Airborne track champion Robert Gordon of Milton, VT has a narrow five-point lead on hometown driver Jason McClatchie (253-248) entering the $1,000-to-win Plattsburgh Ford/Aaron's 100, with Dylan Rabtoy, Scott FitzGerald, and Richie Turner trailing. A two-point declination between feature race positions and an opportunity to score as many as five bonus points in qualifying means that Gordon and McClatchie must keep each other in close quarters all night long.
As close as things are in the Renegades, they're even tighter in the J&S Steel Modifieds. Greg Atkins of Clintonville, NY leads Vince Quenneville Jr. of Brandon, VT by a single point (242-241), meaning there are no guarantees until the checkered flag falls. While the top two drivers have a comfortable advantage on the field, Leon Gonyo, Jason Durgan, Bucko Branham, Codie Aubin, and rookie Timex Morgan remain in the hunt.
The Ground Round Late Model and Busch Beer Mini-Modified titles have not been decided, but Josh Masterson and Dale O'Neil are on their way to locking up the crowns. Bristol, VT's Masterson has 21 points on Todd Stone in the Late Models (168-147), while O'Neil, of Mooers, NY, tops Chris LaVair by 23 (264-241).
In addition to the four NASCAR divisions, two classes from the Competition Go-Kart Series will run in exhibition races during intermission. The "Junior 1 Rookie" class for youngsters age 5-7 will be in action, along with the "Open Lightweight" division – an unrestricted class for drivers age 15 and up. The UFirst Federal Credit Union Kids Club will also host a racecar poster drawing contest with trophies for the winners.
General admission for Plattsburgh Ford/Aaron's Night on Saturday, June 13 is just $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and free for kids age 12 and under. Gates open at 4:30 p.m., with green flag racing action beginning at 7:00 p.m.
