Jamy Begor of Mooers was the J&S Steel Sportsman feature winner at Airborne Speedway Aug. 20.
continued His Northfield Utilities No. 4 got turned around by Howard Stoner, who had just overtaken Duquette for second place. Both cars were sent to the rear. That set the stage for Begor to take over and win by four car-lengths over Bucko Branham. Branham beat Duquette to the line by two feet. Robin Wood was a close fourth, followed by Nick Heywood, Travis Bruno, Jamie Atkins and Danny Sullivan.
“I tried to be in whatever lane was going forward,” Begor said. “The preferred line was the outside. It feels really good to get the win. It’s been a while for me.”
