Andrew Buff (92) sends it into turn three as he was pulling away from the field for the lead in the Sportsman Modified $2,500 to win the race. It would be the second night of the 2020 season at Plattsburgh Airborne Speedway about a month later due to the rain that wipeout out the race on August 29th. Every division on the night from the Sportsman Modified, Pro Stock, Renegades, and 4 Cylinders would be running for extra money as part of Riley and Egglefield Ford night. Although the biggest race on the night would be the Sportsman Modified with it being 2500 to win the race. With all the extra money on the line, there would be over 80 cars that would show up on the night with the biggest one being the Sportsman Modified with 35 in attendance. When the dust would settle after all the heat races it would be time for the mains. The first one up would be the Hartson Total Opening Pro Stock and Josh Coonradt would get the winning pull away on a late-race restart over Tyler Bushey. Next on tap would be the Ernie's Discount Tools Renegade's in a race that would caution filled after incident after incident Jim McKerrian would weave his way through the chaos for the win and $500 win over Tylor Terry and Michael Wright. Then we would have the Limited Sportsman Modified and it would have the biggest incident of the evening as Al Lajoice and Mark Fewster would tangle headed into turn one and Lajoice would go for a wild ride but would be able to walk away. On the restart the kid Fire Swamp would pull away and get the win and continue is hot summer in the Limited division across the North Country. Then it would be the race that everyone was waiting for the $2,500 to win 30 laps J+S Steel Sportsman Modified main with 28 of the best in attendance. It would come right down to the end with Andrew Buff and Connor Cleveland dicing back and forth for the lead late at the end Buff would edge him across the line for what they thought was the winner but later on the car would be disqualified in tech and the win would go to Cleveland for the big paycheck. Then the final race of the night would be the Lake City Fire 4 Cylinders and it would be a caution-free race with the win going to Nathaniel Guay for his second of the season. With that would bring a close to the Plattsburgh Airborne Speedway for the 2020 season and look forward to a regular racing season in 2021 Gallery

Jack Speshock (08) flexs his way through turn 1 as he would take it to victory in the 30 lap J+S Steel Sportsman Modified A Main. It would be the opening night of the 2020 season at Plattsburgh Airborne Speedway about 3 months late due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With it being so late in the season with the opener the big unknown would be how many cars show up for the race and the track would be pleasantly surprised with 73 cars for the four divisions. After all the heat races were down it would be onto the mains for the evening and first out of the box would be the Hartson Total Opening Pro Stocks and the winner main would be Jay Corbin but it would not be without stiff competition from Josh Coonradt. Then we would have the Ernie's Discount Totals Renegades which would start all 17 cars Shawn Duquette would away for the win on the night although the big battle in the main would be for 2-5 as Zack Daniels, Michael Wright, Bill Duprey, and Jim Mckerrian would swap the positions back and forth when the checkered flag flew it would be Daniels 2nd, Mckerrian 3rd, Duprey 4th and Wright fifth. Then we would have the main event of the evening with the J+S Steel Sportsman Modified with 36 in the pits the heats and Consi would be huge as they were starting 30 in the main. When the dust would settle the War Eagle Jack Speschock would get the win but not without hard competition from Dylan Rabtoy (early leader) along with Travis Bruno and Nick Heywood. Although the hard charger on the night would be DJ Gonyo who would have to fall to 30th after a first-lap spin but would charge up for an 18th place finish. Then to end the night it would be the Lake City Fire 4 Cylinders and there would be a familiar face in victory lane with Nathaniel Guay getting the win. All the excitement would come in the last lap of a restart when second and third tingled going for the spot and Tyler Bell and Caleb Tourville would slide into finish out the top three. What's next Plattsburgh Airborne Speedway is a wait and see the game but when we hear at KC Photo Video we will let the rest know. Gallery

Michael Wright (78) and Zack Daniels (30) go side by side through turn 1 and keep it up for many laps during the practice session. The racecars would be back on track for their second practice of the season as the tracks look forward to hopefully having actual races in the near future with the COVID-19 pandemic putting a hold to racing activate at the track. With the practice, you would have guys shaking cars down in the 358 Modified, Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, and the Strictly Stock division. With all the cars there we would have somewhere in the 30s for cars that would take part in the event. Now it's just a waiting game for the drivers and teams on what's to happen next at the racetrack. Gallery
