Airborne adds Stunt Show to regular season finale

PLATTSBURGH — The Mike Watts Memorial 100 for the DIRTcar Modifieds headlines Airborne Park Speedway’s 60th regular season finale at 1 p.m. Sunday.

An added attraction, national stuntman Chris Morena will perform “Sky Crash” during which he will use a ramp launch to jump a Buick Skylark over one tower of cars and attempt to clear second array of parked cars.

Morena and cohort Tim Chitwood are arriving from Fulton Speedway where they have been filming for the History Channel’s new reality television show — “American Daredevils.”

In 2008 at Airborne, Morena broke the record for a two-wheel drive stock pickup truck, jumping 196 feet. More information about Morena, Chitwood and their stunt show is available at autostunts.com.

Champions in three divisions will be determined Sunday.

Limited Late Model point leader Robin Wood of Plattsburgh and Jamy Begor of Mooers are separated by 12 points.

Lance Rabtoy of Fairfax, Vt., will try for his first Renegade title. Rabtoy leads five-time feature winner Jason McClatchie of Plattsburgh, 688-667.

Jayson Criss of Plattsburgh is the Mini-Modified point leader. His closest pursuer is Dale O’Neil of Mooers, a seven-time winner. If O’Neil wins Sunday, Criss needs to finish 10th or better to deny O’Neill the crown and become the 2013 Mini-Modified champion.

All five of Airborne’s weekly divisions will compete.

Todd Stone and Nick Heywood clinched the Ernie’s Tools Modified and J&S Steel Sportsman Modified titles respectively with feature wins last Saturday.
