In what may amount to his swan song on the Northeastern sprint car circuit, Frenchman Steve Poirier was right on key after sweeping the extended three-day weekend at Land Of Legends Raceway.
The rain-delayed New York Nationals short-track extravaganza closed out Sunday afternoon and for first-ever 360 Sprint Car event winner Poirier, he probably wouldn't mind an entire speedweek at the Ontario County Fairgrounds oval where he now owns an even half-dozen feature wins in winged competition.

It may have been an "open" event without any points awarded or a track championship on the line, yet for veteran Alan Johnson his first Modified victory of the season meant so much more.
Not only did Johnson increase his all-time track Pepsi Big-Block win mark to 124 at Land Of Legends Raceway, the Middlesex wheelman extended his streak to 45 consecutive seasons with at least one victory to his credit. And it was his first-ever checkered flag at the hallowed Canandaigua half-miler on May 3, 1975 that lit the fire and 'A.J. Slideways' has kept stoking the flame ever since.
