Airborne Make-A-Wish Night; Double Features & FIreworks

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. – An action-packed racing card and an amazing fireworks display is scheduled to take place this Saturday night at Airborne Speedway, powered by the New England Ford Dealers.

The Liquor & Wine Warehouse has been the presenting race sponsor on Make-A-Wish Night every season. They organize a helmet pass in which all funds go directly to local Make-A-Wish families.

The J & S Steel Sportsman, Hartson Total Opening Renegades, Taylor Rental Street Stocks, and the Northern Blacktopping Limited Sportsman will be in action for regular distance heat and feature races.

In addition to the regularly scheduled events, make-up features will be held for the Renegades and Street Stocks. These features are from the July 1 event that was halted midway through the show due to a severe thunderstorm.

The Independence Day Weekend Fireworks display was also postponed due to the storm back on July 1. Fireworks return this weekend by Dr. Joe Clauss and Coyote Fireworks Group.

Racing action gets underway at 7 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6:15 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 4 p.m. with admission prices set at $15 for adults and free for children under 10.

Anyone who presents a general admission ticket from the event on July 1 will receive $3 off the general admission fee this weekend.

Pit gates will open at 3 p.m. with admission prices set at $27 for members and $32 for non-members.
