Two Sportsman Modified features on ACT 100 card

PLATTSBURGH — Airborne Park Speedway’s Sportsman Modifieds will take the green flag twice as part of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) 100 Spectacular race card tonight.

Following a weekly 30-lap event, the Sportsman Modifieds are scheduled for the first of eight 25-lap “bonus” races on the 2014 schedule. DIRTCar 358-Modified teams that run with a restrictor plate are eligible to join in the bonus race, which will award NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and New York State points, but do not affect the track championship standings.

Nineteen cars were on the starting grid for the first Sportsman Modified feature of the season Saturday, which was won by Travis Bruno of Morrisonville.

Last year’s ACT International winner Joey Polewarczyk Jr. of Hudson, N.H., multi-time ACT and Airborne champion Brian Hoar of Williston, Vt., Jimmy Hebert of Williamstown, Vt., and Plattsburgh’s own Bucko Branham will lead a large field of Late Models back to the Airborne half-mile for the 100-lap event.

The race is the third points-counting event on the 2014 ACT schedule and the first of three appearances by the ACT at Airborne this season.

Also in action are the Renegades and Mini-Modifieds.

Post time is 5 p.m., while the front gates open at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for adults, while kids 12 and under are admitted free.
