Bucko Branham (20) and David Boisclair (02) lock wheels as they are diving for the bottom of turn 1 of the restart. It would be the second week of racing for Airborne Speedway and the four weekly divisions would all be in action as around 60 cars would grace the pits. With that being said everyone would make their respected main events as there would be no need for an lcq on the night. After the heat racing would be done it would be main time and the first one up would be the Renegades division and it would be a great battle up front between Shawn Duquette, Zack and Joe Daniels, and the Terry brothers Tylor and Josh as they would switch the lead many times over the 25 laps A main. When the dust settled we thought that the winner would be Shawn Duquette but that win would be taken away as he was disqualified along with second place Zack Daniels so the win would end up in the hand of Joe Daniels. Next up would be the 30 laps main for the J+S Steel Sportsman Modified and it would be a tight battle up front all night between Nick Heywood, DJ Gonyo, Bucko Branham, and David Boisclair. Nick Heywood would lead the opening would lead the first 20 laps but would have to retire after an apparent electrical issue. So over the last ten laps, the other three would battle it out. There would be a restart with 2 laps to go with Branham and Boisclair when they raced down to the stretch Boisclair would get the win for his first at the track. Next up would be the Limited Sportsman Modified and would battle up front between Al Lajoice and Mark Fewster and after three years chasing Mark Fewster would get first win behind a Sportsman Modified after a pass in the closing laps. Then the last race of the night would be the 4 cylinder class that would see 13 cars take the green flag but after a few crashes on the night only half would see the checkered flag with the win going to Nate Smart after a great battle with Caleb Tourville. The track will be alive again next Saturday night as it will be Law Enforcement night at the track with all four divisions back in action the only change on the schedule is we will head back to our traditional start time of 7 pm.
