Matt Leonard Collects First Career Victory In Sportsman Competition At Airborne Speedway

Story By: ROBBY KNOWLES / AIRBORNE SPEEDWAY – PLATTSBURGH, NY – Matt Leonard, a graduate from the Limited Sportsman division just a year ago, collected his first career checkered flag in the 25-lap J&S Steel Sportsman feature event at Airborne Speedway on Saturday.

Leonard started on the pole and led all the way, holding off racing veteran, Jamy Begor in the final 10 laps. Begor finished in the second position, while Codie Aubin finished third after a side-by-side battle with Robert Delormier, who settled for fourth. Bucko Branham held on to round out the top five.

Nathaniel Guay picked up his second win of the season in the Hartson Total Opening Renegade division. The race had multiple lead changes in the final 10 laps, as Guay, Tylor Terry, and Richie Turner each traded the lead back and forth. While battling for the lead, Terry got loose on the top of turn two and spun around, ending his night. Turner finished in second for the third consecutive feature. Josh Terry, Tyler Irwin, and Shawn Duquette completed the top five.

Jake Fountain and Nate Smart had a seesaw battle at the front of the Taylor Rental Street Stock feature event, and Fountain came away victorious. Fountain came from the sixth row on the starting grid to score his first win of the season. Smart hung on for second, while Josh Laporte Sr. finished a close third. Caleb Tourville and Greg Zindler Jr. completed the top five.

The Northern Blacktopping Limited Sportsman division saw a first time Airborne winner, as Pryor Stacey won the 15-lap feature event. Xavier Delormier, Dale Gonyo, Terry Lamica, and Blaze Benedict completed the top five.

Racing action resumes next Saturday night at Airborne Speedway for Weekly Championship Racing at 7 p.m.
