ACT heads to Airborne Speedway

Posted: Updated:

What a start to the racing season it's been. From a photo finish to young racers moving up the field, there is plenty to be excited about in ACT competition.

After a week off, the tour returns right here to Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh Saturday, for a 100-lap feature race with plenty of bragging rights and points on the line.

"I'm excited to go back there, it's where I started, driver Brian Hoar said." "I won my first title at Airborne in 1999. I've had a great start to the season and can't wait to keep it going there."

Despite two Top 5 finishes to start the season, Hoar announced that after this race, he'll be taking a hiatus until July, to spend more time with his family.

"After the fifth race, I'll probably be asking myself why I did this," Hoar said. "When you start so well, it makes it harder. It won't be easy."

With the No. 37 car off the track, expect upstart tour drivers like Jimmy Hebert and Bobby Therrien to take advantage from this race forward.

"We want to win, that's always the goal," Therrien said. "We're hoping for a Top 10, maybe a Top 5 finish to continue to stay hot. That's our goal heading into Plattsburgh."

The forecast calls for sun Saturday, which should sit well with the fans in the stands awaiting the 5 pm post time. In Plattsburgh, Dylan Scott Channel 3 Sports.
