Max McLaughlin (32c) celebrates in victory lane with his first Billy Whitaker Cars & Truxs Super DIRTcar Series victory and it comes at the biggest track on the circuit Weedsport Speedway. It would be the last stop on the Oktoberfast presented by Dirtvision tour and it would be at the Weedsport Speedway and we would have the Billy Whitaker Cars & Truxs Super DIRTcar Series Modifieds, Racing Electronics Sportsman Modified, and Comp Cams Pro Stock and with it being the last stop on the tour there would be extra money on the line for event and 175 cars in the pits. After all the qualifying and last chance qualifiers in the books, it would be onto the main event. The first main event of the night would be the Comp Cams Pro Stocks for 25 laps. The race would have a rough start as there would be three cautions before they got to lap two. Once the race got underway it would be a great race with the eventual win going to Nick Stone and his second of the week. Next up would be Racing Electronics Sportsman Modified in a 35 lap main event and the winner pocketing a cool two thousand dollars. With all the top contenders in the pits, it would take a lot just to make the 32 car field. Although when the dust would settle the cream would rise to the top and Kevin Root would get the win and second of the week. Then all that would be left would be the Billy Whitaker Cars & Truxs Super Dirtcar Series Modifieds for 75 laps and ten thousand dollars to the winner. With Matt Sheppard and Matt Williamson starting on the front row, the rest of the field would have an uphill battle. As the two of them would duke it out for the first half of the race. Then there would be a third player that would start to work his way into the battle in the likes of Max McLaughlin he would work his way around Williamson and then set his sights on Matt Sheppard. With around twenty laps to go McLaughlin would get around Sheppard for the lead and would hold off all the charges by Sheppard for the win. With the win, Max McLaughlin would get the first win of his career on the Super DIRTcar and cash in on the ten thousand dollars. That would bring an end to the Oktoberfast but there's still more for the Super DIRTcar Series as they plan on heading to the Eastern States at the Orange County Fair Speedway on October 24th and 25th.

In the Comp Cams Pro Stock heat race Gary Silkey (75) would lose and it come around and Ivan Joslin (8k) would have nowhere to go they would colide.

There would be a group of Super DIRTcar Series Modifieds sliding through the corner lead by Justin Haers (3) and Pat Ward's (42). It would be the next stop on the Oktoberfast presented by Dirtvision round 4 from the Land of Legends Raceway. It was planned to be a quick night of racing with just the Billy Whitaker Cars & Truxs Super Dirtcar Series and the Racing Electronics Sportsman Modified divisions the only two on the schedule. Although there would be a couple of issues with that plan as there would be nearly 125 cars show up and mother nature would not cooperate as there would be three separate rain delays on the night. After all the heats and last chance qualifiers would be done and schedule adjustments it would be onto the main events. In the first main event of the night, the Billy Whitaker Cars & Truxs Super DIRTcar Series would be up first for their 60 laps main event. It would be a dominating performance as 7-time champion Matt Sheppard would start on the pole and never relinquish the lead and cruise to the victory and take home the $7,500 first-place check with it and rounding out the top three would be Matt Williamson and Mike Mahaney. Then we would have the 30 lap Racing Electronics Sportsman Modified main event. That main event would be filled with nothing but a heartbreak as Zach Sobokta would lead 29 and three-quarter laps only to get passed on the final corner by Tyler Murray that would win the drag race to the finish line and rounding out the top three would be Alan Fink. Then there would only be one stop left on the tour and that would be the home of DIRTcar Northeast Weedsport and there would be extra money on the line for the last event of the week. Gallery

Josh Bussino (2x) is the meat in the sandwich as they take it three-wide through turn 3/4 at the Can-Am Motorsports Park with (01) on the bottom and (38j) Jarrett Heribson on the outside. It would be the 4th stop on the Oktoberfast race week and it would come to you from the Can-Am Motorsports Park with nearly 200 cars in attendance between the Super Dirtcar Series, 358 Modifieds, and Sportsman Modified. It would be a long night of racing at Lafargeville with the hot laps getting underway at 4:30 pm and the last race of the night would be getting done shortly before midnight. After all the qualifying and last chance qualifiers, the first man up for the night would be the Bicknell 358 Modifieds with 70 in attendance and only starting 32 for the 40 laps main event making the show would be an accomplishment in its self. When the dust would settle it would be track regular Timmy Fuller taking the win but not without a hard challenge from Anthony Pergeuro and Erick Rudolph. Then next would be the Racing Electronics Sportsman Modified would battle for 30 laps but their field would even be harder to get in as there were over 80 cars at the track trying to make the field of 32. Once again though when the dust would settle it would be a local racer using his knowledge to get the win as Kevin Root would pull into victory lane over Matt Janzuik and Tyler Cahoon for the thousand dollar payday. Then to finish off the night would be the Super Dirtcar Series presented by Billy Whitaker Cars and Truxs for a 60 lap main event and the winners take of $7,500 and when the dust would settle Anthony Pergero would pull in for the win as he would lead wire to wire over Mike Mahaney and Mike Maresca. The next stop on the Oktoberfast tour will be the following night at the Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, Gallery

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
