• 3 racers DQ’ed at T-Road
     | August 15,2013

    BARRE – Following last Sunday’s 50-lap Street Stock special at Barre’s Thunder Road, engines were torn down and checked. Thunder Road officials have announced the engines of No. 38, five-time winner Greg Adams, Jr. and the No. 16 of Dean Switser, Jr. were both found illegal. Adams engine was illegal due to piston and camshaft issues, while the engine of Switser was illegal with camshaft issues. The No. 92 entry of Garry Bashaw was also found illegal in post race inspection for an illegal carburetor and refusal to allow his motor to be torn down.

    Adams, Switser and Bashaw have all been disqualified from Sunday’s Street Stock event. The motor infractions have resulted in a complete loss of points for the 2013 season and all three competitors found illegal have been suspended from racing at Thunder Road or any ACT-sanctioned event for the remainder of the 2013 season.

    The engine of No. 50 Tommy “Thunder” Smith was found legal; he has inherited the win for Sunday’s Street Stock Special.

    The Street Stock results from Sunday as well as the point standings have all been adjusted and can be found at www.thunderroadspeedbowl.com.

    Airborne Sept. 14

    SOUTH PLATTSBURGH – Most nights at Airborne Speedway track officials hope for a minimum of crashes and competitor wreckage, but on Saturday, Sept. 14, the goal is all-out mayhem.

    The Lyman’s Salvage Crash-a-Rama event includes a $5,000-to-win Enduro 100 for 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder cars, a $1,000-to-win Demo Derby for V-8 cars, a $600-to-win Demo Derby for 4-cylinder cars, a truck class and a Powder Puff Demo.

    All Enduro cars must be turned over to the track at day’s end. The $35 entry fee includes a pit pass. Additional pit passes are $15.

    “We’ll have Demo Derby heat races and if we have more than 50 entries, we’ll pay $150 to the heat winners,” promoter Mike Perrotte said. “All of the entry money taken in by trucks will be paid back out.”

    Post time for the Lyman’s Salvage Enduro is 1 p.m. For additional information, contact the track office at 518-561-3208 or visit airborneparkspeedway.com.
