Story By: ROBBY KNOWLES / AIRBORNE SPEEDWAY – PLATTSBURGH, NY – The Taylor Rental Street Stock division will take center stage at Airborne Speedway for this Saturday’s Street Stock Special presented by Rustic Auto Body.
The theme for the Street Stocks will be “4’s are wild”. The division will compete in a 44-lap feature event, with $444 going to the winner. Bonus money was added to the winners share courtesy of Riley Ford and Ukie’s Grocery & Deli.

Nathaniel Guay took over the points lead in the Renegade division this past weekend. Guay has 504 points on the year and a 10-point lead over Richie Turner.
