A-S mods, sports and limiteds

After a two-hour delay due to rain, race director Bruce Richards and the entire staff managed to bring the track back to a proper racing surface, the green flag flew for the remaining three features.
In a battle of attrition, Ballston Spa's Dan Older outlasted three different race leaders.
Older battled Kenneth Conway for the final two laps, taking advantage of a bobble by Conway on the final lap, bringing the Hofmann's Concrete and Snow Removal No. 97 into victory lane.
The modifieds returned to the dirt oval after circling the track to remove the excess water.
The handicapped field forced the top drivers deep into the field. Names like Tremont, Hearn and Johnson saw the most cars in front of them than a slow morning down the Northway.
Ronnie Johnson relied on his race team to bring the JRP Motorsports No. 2 up to speed and return him to victory lane.
Johnson moved into the top spot on lap 15 with Brett Hearn close behind.
Johnson continued to hold off Hearn, but admitted that he wasn't sure where he was during the race.
The two made contact coming out of turn four, but continued without losing speed.
The win earned Johnson his second $500 "Beat Brett Hearn Bonus" from Salisbury Chevrolet.
The open wheeled division racing closed out with the sportsman class and first-time winner Chris Johnson from Guilderland earning his first-ever win at Albany-Saratoga.
He was able to best race leader, "Rollin" Mike Tholin on lap 14. Johnson took the hiigh line, getting past a diving Tholin who was tracking a low line.
