Story By: ROBBY KNOWLES / AIRBORNE SPEEDWAY – PLATTSBURGH. NY – Pulling into victory lane is always a good thing.
It’s even better when it happens on your sponsor’s night at the speedway.

Guay collected his first win of the season, while Daniels settled for second. Shawn Duquette, Tylor Terry and Jason Boggett completed the top five.
Travis Bruno made an early race move to vault by Bentley Gray off of the second turn to score a win in the J&S Steel Sportsman division’s 25-lap feature event. Bruno was challenged by teammate, Lonnie Rivers, on lap-18. Rivers was on the back bumper of Bruno, but a yellow flag came out the following lap, and Bruno pulled away on the ensuing restart. Rivers held on to finish in the second spot, while Tanner Forbes completed the podium. Codie Aubin and Jamy Begor finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
