Story By: ROBBY KNOWLES / AIRBORNE SPEEDWAY – PLATTSBURGH, NY – Jake Scarborough made his winning pass on lap-11 of the 25-lap J&S Steel Sportsman feature event at Airborne Speedway.
The feature event went green to checkers, which helped Scarborough as he built up a huge lead over the field. In the closing laps, however, Michael Wright was reeling in Scarborough, but ran out of time and settled for second. Tanner Forbes, Travis Bruno and Joey Scarborough completed the top five.
Tylor Terry had his number 44 car on a rail in the Hartson Total Opening feature event. Terry was dominant in his third win of the year, as he took advantage of his front row starting position to run away from the pack. Richie Turner battled on the outside groove to finish in second, while Tyler Irwin completed the podium. Jason Bogett and Josh Terry finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
The Taylor Rental Street Stock division competed in a 15-lap feature event and Nick Harnden took everyone to class. Harnden had his car hooked up wherever he put it on the track and drove to his second win of the season.
Bill Doner navigated traffic to finish in second and Greg Zindler Jr. finished third. The Tourville duo of Caleb and Kenny completed the top five.
Scott Fitzgerald scored his first Northern Blacktopping Limited Sportsman win of the year. Tony Arquette and Parker Dermody completed the podium.
The North Country Honor Flight was in attendance with local veterans who took part in a pre-race ceremony. Drivers participated in a helmet pass which collected just under $1,000 for the local group. Renegade drivers in the top three finishing positions donated a combined $170 of their winnings, which brought the end of night total to over $1,000 for North Country Honor Flight.
Racing action resumes next Saturday night for Back-to-School Night, where children in attendance will have a chance to take home a new backpack with school supplies and possibly some racer swag.
