Wood, Begor point battle heating up
PLATTSBURGH – Jamy Begor of Mooers goes after his third consecutive Adirondack Water Limited Late Model win tonight at Airborne Park Speedway as a part of the Mold-Rite Plastics/Choice Furniture card that includes Modifieds, Sportsman Modifieds Limited Late Models Mini Modifieds.
Begor’s surge has brought him within four points of division leader Robin Wood, who has three wins this season. Both drivers are well-sponsored veterans, who are no strangers to championship stretch runs.
A restart with five laps remaining set up Begor’s last win — his 15th since 2000 (Wood has 34) — which required a rally from the rear of the field after getting turned around six laps into the race.
Danny Sullivan of Morrisonville and defending Limited Late Model champion Bucko Branham of Plattsburgh are also in the title chase. Sullivan is third in points, 34 points shy of Begor and four ahead of Branham.
Defending Ernie’s Tools Modified champion Todd Stone, winner of last weekend’s Twin 50s event, enjoys a comfortable lead atop the Modified standings. Leon Gonyo, Kris Vernold, Patrick Dupree and Jessey Mueller are closely bunched in positions 2-5.
Adult admission tonight is $10. Post time 6 p.m.
