PLATTSBURGH - Airborne Speedway Management has announced a $5,000 to win New Year’s Day Enduro to kick off the 2023 calendar year.
The event marks the first car racing event in the month of January at Plattsburgh’s storied facility.
The “Frozen 100” is scheduled to go green at noon on Sunday, January 1 and will be presented by Plattsburgh Advanced Imagining. Pre-registration will be required for the event and will be available in the next couple of weeks.
Plattsburgh Advanced Imaging owner, Jim “Timex” Morgan presented the idea to the Airborne Management team to get the ball rolling. “I first saw this type of New Year’s day event at Ransomville Speedway.” Morgan said. “I’ve been looking for different things to do to stay busy and I am really excited for this one.”

$5,000 is advertised as the winners share for the 100-lap race. $1,000 and $500 will also be paid out for second and third place, respectively.
The event will be contested under the Airborne Speedway Enduro Rules. Any rule adjustments will be posted in the next couple of weeks. Additionally, registration information will also be available at that time.

PLATTSBURGH - The DIRTcar 358 Modified division will return to Airborne Speedway for the 2023 racing season.
After two successful events with the 358 Modifieds a year ago, Airborne Speedway Management has committed to bringing back the division in a part time capacity.
"Building off the success of the DIRTcar 358 event last year, Mike and I started talking about adding more events in 2023" said DIRTcar NE Competition Director Dean Reynolds. "We have both agreed to run several DIRTcar 358 events and it will be enough to award DIRTcar home track bonus points if any driver wants to run for the DIRTcar 358 Title. All the events will also count to the Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Points as well."
After last season’s 358 Modified show, many of the competitors were contacting the speedway to do more with the division going forward. The Management team at Airborne has been in contact with several drivers who are excited about the opportunity to return to Airborne in 2023.
More information will be available as the racing season gets closer. Stay tuned to the website at airborne-speedway.com or follow along on Facebook at Airborne Speedway.
