South Plattsburgh High-performance snowmobile racers from Canada, New York and New England will compete over a course of jumps, bumps and table tops in the first event of the International Triple Crown Series planned for Jan. 12 and 13. The competition will be held at Airborne Speedway, Broderick Road, just off Rte 22 in South Plattsburgh, one mile south of I-87 exit 36.
The three-race series includes Pro and Pro-Lite riders from East Coast Snocross presented by Amsoil and Woody’s Traction and the Quebec-based Super Competition Motorsport Tour.
The Airborne event is sponsored by Akwesasne Mohawk Casino, Econo Lodge, Della Motorsports, Liquor & Wine Warehouse, WOKO, WIZN and KOOL105. Round two of the Triple Crown Series will take place in Louiseville, QC, Feb. 2 and 3. The finale is set for Valcourt, QC Feb. 15 through 17. Over $7,500 in purse monies has been posted to date.
“We had two successful events at the Crete Civic Center,” promoter Mike Perrotte said. “We just wanted to try something different. All the room we have in the infield and on the front straightaway should allow for an excellent track. I think with our grandstands and ample parking for both competitors and fans, Airborne should be a good fit for a big snowmobile race.”
Corin Todd of Polaris and Danny Poirier of Ski-doo, were Pro Open winners at the East Coast Snocross opener at Burke Mountain.
Pro racing begins at 12:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, January 12 through 13. Daily admission is $12/adults, $5/kids 6-12, ages five and under admitted free.
