Kids rides and spectator races at Airborne

PLATTSBURGH — There’s something for everyone at Airborne Speedway tonight, including the chance to try your hand at navigating the half-mile in your own vehicle.

Agency Insurance Night offers Kids Race Car Rides before weekly division qualifying action begins at 6 p.m. There will also be a Classic Cruisers Car Show and 1-on-1 spectator elimination races — single-lap races with the winner advancing to the next round. There is a $50 bonus posted for the Most Unusual Entry. Entrants must wear a helmet and be driving a registered car or truck — no motorcycles.

The DIRTcar Modifieds will compete in the Charlie Trombley Memorial. Todd Stone of Middlebury, Vt. is the Modified points leader. The defending track champion leads 18-year-old Jessey Mueller of Olmstedville. Leon Gonyo of Chazy holds down third place in the standings, followed by Kris Vernold and Patrick Dupree.
