Two track records were set on a night featuring six classes and a disqualification at Saratoga Speedway. The Bomber cars, Hornet cars, Island Mini Stocks, Dwarf cars, I.M.C.A Modifieds, and Motorcycles were on the card Saturday.

Gilles Cyr set a new track record in the Bomber car class, setting a new track record of 17.479. Alex Mouner also set a new track record in the Island Mini Stocks division, setting a new time of 17.048.

The 20-lap feature for the Bomber cars saw Charlie Ackerman take over the lead on lap three and he never looked back from there. Mike Dionne finished second, with third going to Jeff Monks, which marked his best finish of the year.

Alex Mouner won the only Mini Stock main event of the season. All 22 Hornet cars raced in one 35 lap feature.

Daryl Cahill led the first 28 laps and looked to have it all wrapped up, but Brandon Phillips caught up to him on the backstretch and made the pass, taking the lead and the eventual win, winning his first main event of the season. Dave Emmerson carried his winning ways into the 20-lap Dwarf main.

Rob Ryan led the first 18 laps of the Modified main event, with the lead eventually going to Tim Openshaw who passed Ryan in turn one. Openshaw would eventually win the main event, but he did not report to tech after the race, and by Speedway rules, that results in a disqualification. Pat Brown would then be the winner, giving Ryan second.

Next weekend marks the third annual bikini contest. Next weekend is also the last Crash to Pass boat race of the year.
