Airborne Plans Big Month of May

For immediate release                                                                   AS-012710-1

South Plattsburgh, NY – May is going to be an exciting month at Airborne Speedway. Airborne’s 57th season – likely its biggest and most unique – opens Saturday, May 2. One week later, Saturday May 9, the American Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will be in town for the 35th annual Spring Green 100.

          The Modified Racing Series, one of two open-wheel asphalt modified tours scheduled to make its first-ever appearance at Airborne in 2010, will compete on Saturday, May 29. The Modified Racing Series has steadily grown in popularity with fans and race teams alike. The Series has a 19-race schedule in 2010, which takes it to all six New England states and New York. Jon McKennedy of Chelmsford, Mass is the reigning champion.

          The International Super Modified Association (ISMA) series will make its first trip to Airborne Saturday, July 17.

          Scott Payea, the 2009 ACT runner-up won the 2009 Spring Green. Racers attempting to deny Payea a second-straight Spring Green victory include 2009 ACT champion Brian Hoar of Williston, VT, multi-time Airborne champion Brent Dragon of Milton, VT, Thunder Road Milk Bowl winner John Donahue of Graniteville, VT, Joey Polewarczyk of Hudson, NH and former Spring Green winner and NASCAR Busch North champion Brad Leighton of Center Harbor, NH. Canadian Junior Hanley and Plattsburgh’s Robin Wood (Sportsman) are the only drivers to win back-to-back Spring Greens.

          The season opener May 2 kicks off 2009 Ernie’s Tools Modified champion Martin Roy’s title defense. The J&S Steel Sportsman, Versatile Trailer Sales Renegades, Keeseville NAPA Auto Parts Mini-Modifieds and Monster Energy Bombers will also be in action.
