Bernier wins Plattsburgh Airborne Speedway Night of champions

Steve Bernier put on a show of dormice early on in the Egglefield Brothers Ford 358 Modified feature at Airborne Speedway. Bernier who took charge of the Feature race by lap 10 went on to capture his second championship at the legendary speedway in style.

Bernier fought hard all season to keep up with the top group of extraordinary drivers at the Plattsburgh track. Going into the final race Bernier had a 22 point lead over Mike Mahaney followed by Chris Raabe who was a mere 28 points behind.

It was clear from the drop of the green that Steve was on top of his game this night, and would quickly duel for the lead with Chris Raabe. Raabe who took the high grove proved at first to be a tough opponent but on lap 14 Bernier forced his way by Raabe to take the lead. From that point on the St. Hyacinth, Quebec drive was in charge of the race, going on to capture the win along with the 2019 Track Championship, Francois Bernier finished second, with Raabe coming in a close third. Dany Gagne came home fourth, and Jeremy Roy fifth.

In the Hartson Total Opening Pro- Stock Feature C.D. Beauchamp, Marc Lalonde, and Jocelyn Roy came out and put on one of the best races of the season.

Coming into the race Beauchamp had just a six-point lead over Marc Lalonde in the championship points battle setting up a do or dye race for the championship tilt.

From the drop of the green flag, the trio raced side by side until Roy took a slight lead over Beauchamp and Lalonde.

But the two back runners came on mid-race to challenge Roy once again for the lead, setting up a three-way battle.

With just three to go Beauchamp got gathered up in a front stretch crash with Nick Stone ending all hopes of the championship.

Roy went on the win followed by Lalonde in second with Pascal Payeur coming home in third.

With Beauchamp misfortunes, Marc Lalonde has crowned the 2019 Pro Stock track Champion, his first in the Pro-Stock division.

The Poirer’s True Value Sportsman feature saw Connor Cleveland come home with the win, his seventh of the season at Plattsburgh. But it was Adam Pierson, who came into the final race of the season with a 23 point lead over Cleveland took home the 2019 Track championship title after coming across the line to finish second in the feature race.
