Tanner Claims Empire Super Sprint Victory at Airborne

PLATTSBURGH – Matt Tanner of Stephentown, NY picked up the victory in the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint main event presented by Northline Utilities at Airborne Park Speedway.

               Tanner led every single lap en route to his first win of 2017. In the closing laps, 16 year old Paulie Colagiovanni lurked behind Tanner, but ran out of time in the 25 lap feature. Jeff Cook, Steve Poiriér and Paul Kinney rounded out the top five.

               The Egglefield Ford 358-Modified division ran a 30 lap main event with a familiar face pulling into victory lane.

               Chris Raabe of Alexandria, ON picked up his third win in four attempts. A yellow flag on lap-24 erased Mike Perrotte's full back stretch lead. Perrotte chose the inside for the restart and that put Raabe outside. Perrotte aced the restart, but Raabe had a strong run in turns one and two to power past. Gage Morin finished in second. Perrotte, Jessey Mueller and Travis Bruno rounded out the top five.

               Joey Scarborough collected his first win of the season in the Fidelis Care Sportsman division.

               Scarborough used the outside on a lap-5 restart and never looked back. Connor Cleveland had the fastest car on the track, coming from position 22 on the starting grid and finishing second. Jamy Begor used a strong late race charge to get to third as he worked around Adam Gage and Zack Daniels, who finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

               Brent Jarvis collected his fourth win in as many tries in the Poirier's True Value Renegade division. Mark Caron and Michael Wright completed the top three.

               Kris Clark cashed in for the Busch Beer Mini-Mod victory in his first appearance of the season. Michael Whalen and Ed Bresette rounded out the top three.

               The first repeat winner in the Strictly Stock division was Michael Daniels. Shawn Walker and Nathan Smart completed the top three.

               All results remain unofficial.

               Racing actions resumes next Saturday night at 7 p.m. For more information visit airborneparkspeedway.com.
