SOUTH PLATTSBURGH -- The Memorial Day Classic "" 100 Laps for the J&S Steel Sportsman division -- is the scheduled main event tonight at Airborne Speedway.

Both Sportsman features this season have been hotly contested. Defending champion Toby Ebersole of Peru was the opening day winner. Last week, the checkers went to Jason Bonnett of St Albans. Both times, Plattsburgh's Bucko Branham was a close second in the Northern Sanitation/Marsha Homes No. 20.

"If I find myself starting toward the front, I'll try to take the lead and stay there," Branham said. "When I'm farther back in a long race, I usually just take the first 50 laps as they come and then try to move up."

The Ernie's Tools Modifieds, Versatile Trailer Sales Renegades, US Army Warriors and Monster Energy Bombers will all be in action.

American Legion Post 1619 of West Plattsburgh will present a salute to veterans preceding the Memorial Day Classic.

The grandstands open at 4 p.m. Post time is 6 p.m.
