Story By: ROBBY KNOWLES / AIRBORNE SPEEDWAY – PLATTSBURGH, NY – The ground pounding 358-Modifieds will return to Airborne Speedway for a special 35-lap, $2,000 to win event on Saturday, May 7.
Many of the former 358-Modified regulars have reached out to Airborne Speedway Management to express their excitement to return to the 4/10-mile. In addition to the familiar names, many Canadian competitors are expected to compete.
The Quebec tracks are not running 358-Modifieds that weekend, which has prompted a bonus for Canadian competitors. The top finishing Canadian will receive a $250 bonus, while the second and third Canadian to cross the finish line will receive $150 and $100, respectively.
All four of Airborne Speedway’s divisions of Sportsman, Renegades, Limited Sportsman and Street Stocks will be in action for regular distance heat and feature races.
The event will be the first regular points race for the Sportsman division, and the second point counting event for the Renegades and Street Stocks.
Airborne Speedway kicks the season off on Saturday, April 30 for the DIRTcar Sportsman Series event beginning at 6 p.m.
