Borthwick Memorial

Jim Borthwick was born September 14, 1942 in the State of Maine. He moved to Delaware with his

family and began his racing career at the age of 16. Jim was one of the original members of the Blackbird Micro-Midget Racing Club and was presented with a lifetime membership in 1983 honoring his many years of service to the Club.

Throughout his racing career, he was credited with 59 Feature wins, 13 of which were recorded in the same year. He also won at least 1 Feature Event for 11 straight years. Jim was Class Point Champion in 1966, 1968 and 1970.

In his final year with the Club, he posted 4 wins and 4 second place finishes in the Industrial Flathead (IF) Class driving the familiar #77. He was leading the Class point race in 1984 at the time of the on-track accident which took his life. Jim passed away on September 24, 1984 as a result of severe head injuries.

In Jim's honor, the 4-stroke Division, each year, lines up their Feature event with the pole position open and concludes their race on the White Flag lap at which time they pull into the infield signifying that the race never ends

Live streaming video by UstreamAirport Speedway Live!

You may have noticed, we are trying new things here at Airport Live. After receiving some positive feedback we will continue to stream as we have been the last 2 weeks. However, streaming from the infield is tough on the camera man and it is also hard to get a good quality shot. So from now on streaming from the infield will no longer happen. BUT, we will be adding a few things such as LIVE pit walk throughs and LIVE driver interviews. Due to the small number of viewers for heat races, we will be streaming FEATURES ONLY and shutting down the stream between each race UNLESS we have arranged a driver interview. The stream will come back up just before the wave lap (1 to go) for each race. Another thing, it may be wise to RESTART your browser if the stream locks up on you. Most of the time our stream is working fine but you may have had an interruption in your connection so you will have to refresh your browser page. Last but certainly not least, A big thank you to Ryan Terracciano for being an outstanding camera man and Airport Live Manager this year! This wouldnt be possible without him! Tune is each week to catch our live coverage of the races AND newly added PIT WALKTHROUGH and DRIVER INTERVIEWS! 

Thanks - The Airport Live Team
