Dupree takes aim at Airborne Modified lead tonight
PLATTSBURGH — After a rocky start to his season, Saranac Lake’s Patrick Dupree has a first and second in his last two starts and may be poised to challenge the supremacy of defending Ernie’s Tools Modified champion Todd Stone of Middlebury, Vt. tonight at Airborne Speedway.
Stone is the current points leader, 276-252, over Leon Gonyo. Dupree has moved into a fourth-place tie with teammate Jessey Mueller of Olmstedville with 226 points.
Tonight’s Liquor & Wine Warehouse card offers two Key RD Trailer Sales Renegade features. Last week, Richie Turner of Milton, Vt. was an impressive winner of the Renegade 100.
Also in action tonight will be the Sportsman Modifieds, Limited Late Models and Mini Modifieds. Plattsburgh’s Robin Wood took over the Limited Late Model point lead with his second win of the year last week. He goes after his third win tonight in the Ganienkeh Territorial Bingo No. 61.
Gates open at 4 p.m. Qualifying heats begin at 6 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults; kids 12 and under are admitted free.
