Airborne_464_223Plattsburgh, NYJune 7, 2009 – By Tom Skibinski, Advance Auto Parts Super DIRTcar Series PR Director

History was on the horizon as a modern-day track record 47 Modified racers signed in Sunday for the inaugural Advance Auto Parts Super DIRTcar Series ‘Battle of Plattsburgh 100’ scheduled at Airborne Speedway.


But it was intermittent rain overhead that ultimately ruled the day, forcing track and series officials to cancel the event by late afternoon. Both sides will convene this week and determine whether a make-up date can be found to accommodate the highly anticipated DIRTcar tour event on asphalt.

Prior to the untimely showers that caused teams to retreat pitside, over an hour of practice took center stage on Airborne’s recently repaved half-miler, affording area track regulars and tour travelers plenty of time to dial in their open-wheel mounts. Heading the group were defending Airborne points champion Patrick Dupree and outside invader Matt Sheppard, winner of the 100-lap Modified main the night before at Lebanon Valley Speedway.
