Lonnie Rivers (R7) and Robert Deloremier (10) go sliding through turn one as they battle for the lead during the heat race of the Sportsman Modified as they look to better their start in the main. It would be the third night of racing at Airborne Speedway of the season and it would be Law Enforcement Night presented by Riley Ford with the Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, and 4 Cylinders in action. The car count might have been a little down on with the Dirtcar Sportsman Modified Series race at Bear Ridge but that wouldn't change the excitement on the track. Before opening ceremonies the Sportsman Modified would come out for time trials and Robert Deloremier would pick up fast time of the night and a cool 125 dollars. Then it would be onto the heat races from the night and first out of the box would be the Renegades for two and wins would go to Tylor Terry and Richie. Then we would have the Sportsman Modified and the wins would go to fan favorites Lonnie Rivers and Jamy Begor and then to finish off the heats it would be the four cylinders for two heats and the wins would go to JJ Laporte and Mat Parker. Then it would be onto the main events of the evening and the first one up would be the Renegades. After a few early cautions for spins, they would clean it up and have a great last 12 laps of racing as Zack Daniels and Nathaniel Guay would be on it for the win and with minimal contact would cross the line together and Guay would get the win. Then it would be onto the Taylor Rental four cylinders and there would be 19 cars that would start the 15 laps main after the carnage would settle only ten would finish. The win would go to first-time winner Greg Zinder Jr, or Bill Doner as he was chasing him down and just ran out of laps. Then there was just one race left on the night the Sportsman Modified 25 lap main event and it would get off to a scary start on the lap as Casey Swamp's car would catch fire on lap 1 but would get to the infield and get it out and the driver would be ok. Then with 4 laps to go there would be a restart after a multicar crash in turn three that would take out Beau Reeves and Chris Cayea. On the restart, it would be teammates Travis Bruno and Lonnie Rivers and they would duel it out and the win would go to defending track champion Travis Bruno with Tanner Forbes rounding out the top three. The racing at Airborne Speedway will return to the track next weekend May 21st with all the regular divisions back in action. Gallery

Eli Gilbert (75) would spin on the final corner and Justin White (1x) would slam on the breaks to avoid him but still would make slight contact with the nose. It would be the start of the 2022 season at the Mohawk International Raceway and they would have all six of their racing divisions the 358 Modifieds, Crossroad Tobacco Sportsman Modifieds, Pro Stocks, Novice Sportsman Modified, Mod Lites, and Bandits. The racing would start off with the Bandits heat and Sharlow would take the wire to wire win. Then we would have the Mod Lites for heat and Jason Premo would get the checkered flag. Then we would have the Novice Sportsman Modified and the old man Dale Gonyo would get the win. Then it would be the return of the Dirtcar Pro Stocks with two heats on the night and Zack Daniels and Kevin Featherley would get the wins. Then with nearly 30 Sportsman Modified in the pits, there would be four heats needed on the night and the winners would be Greg Snyder, DJ Gonyo, Shane Pecore, and Cedric Gouvreau. Then we would have two heats of the mighty 358 Modifieds and the winners would be Brian MacDonald and Chris Rabbe along with a big roll by Todd Stone that would completely destroy the car. Then it would be time to head to the mains for the night and first out of the box would be the Bandits and the eventual winner would be Sharlow. Then it would be onto the Mod Lites for 15 laps and after Jason Premo had his big taken from him on late caution flag he and Tristain Dibble would battle down to wire and Dibble would get the win. Then it would be the Novice Sportsman Modified for 15 laps and it would see Cameron Reif getting the win over last year's champion Pyror Stacey for the checkered. Then we would have the Dirtcar Pro Stocks four 15 laps the race would have to halt for a bit as they would have one get on its roof. After the restart, you would see a battle for the ages upfront between Kevin Featherly and Bruno Richard and with Featherley making one mistake in the closing laps Richard would capitalize for the win. Then it would be onto the Crossroad Tobacco Sportsman Modified main for 25 laps with 30 cars starting. There would be a few early race cautions that would keep the racing tight at the beginning. Once the cautions went away so would Shane Pecore and get the win in his return to the Mohawk International Raceway. Then it would be the main event of the evening with the 358 Modifieds for 30 laps and with Chris Rabbe starting on the pole the question was would anyone be able to track him down and the answer would be no although it would not be without a valiant effort from Carey Terrance. The racing will return to the track again next Friday, May 20th with all six divisions back in action again. Gallery

Cody Agoney (51x) takes it for a ride and up and over she goes as Tyler Irwin (54) avoids hitting him as he scatters to the top of the track. It would be the second week of racing at the Airborne Speedway and it would be the return of the 358 Modifieds for the showdown for the first time since the end of the 2019 season. With that being said the 358 Modifieds would be first up for the heat races and the winners would be Chris Raabe and Mathieu Desjardins. Next up would be the J+S Steel Sportsman Modified for their three heats races on the night and the winners would be, Michael Delormier, Lonnie Rivers, and Codie Aubin. Then we would have the Hartson Total Opening Renegades and their two heat races and it would be a family affair in victory as the winners would be Josh and Tyler Terry. Then we would have the ever-popular Taylor Rental 4 Cylinders with their 2 heats on the night and the winners would be Bill Doner and Matt Parker. Then next up to the track would be the first main event of the evening with the Return of the 358 Modified and would be a great race between the 17 cars on the track as they would do the whole race caution-free as Chris Raabe would pick up the win over a hard-charging Mike Mahaney and Carey Terrance to round out the top three on the night. Then we would have the J+S Steel Sportsman Modified for 25 laps and a 21 car field to start and their event would also go caution-free and Robert Delormeir would take his pole position and not give it up as he would lead all 25 laps to the race win over Codie Aubin and Lonnie Rivers to round out the top three on the night. Then we would have the popular Hartson Total Opening Renegades and a fourteen-car field on the night and Zack Daniels would come from the fourth spot and get the win. There would be some excitement during the race though as Cody Agoney would spin out in turn 1 and catch a rout and it would take the car on over and bring out the red flag. Once the red flag was lifted and we got back to racing Richie Turner would make a charge from the back for a second-place finish and Tyler Irwin would round out the top three in the division. Then we would have the Taylor Rental 4 Cylinders and packed seventeen car field and it would be Nathan Smart charging from the back row to front to gain his second straight win on the season with Matt Parker and Mat LaValley (first career top 3) rounding out the podium on the night. Then it would be the last race of the night a five-lap match race between Kobe Hernandez, and Jonathan Toohill in the Northern Blacktopping Limited Sportsman Modified, and the win would go to Kobe Hernandez. The action will be back next Saturday night May 14th at Airborne Speedway with all four regular divisions back in action on Riley Ford Law Enforcement night where any law enforcement member with proper ID will be granted free entry into the races on the night.

It would be some four-wide racing through turns 1 and 2 of the 4 cylinders main between Greg Zindler (46), Nate Harden (125), (65), and Caleb Tourville (42) as the high for a top 3 finish on opening night. It would the season opener for the Airborne Speedway and they would bring in the Dirtcar Sportsman North/East Series with a liquor and wine warehouse presenting the night of racing. The pits would be packed for the opening night of racing as there would be nearly 100 cars in the pits for the dour divisions on the night, Sportsman Modified, Novice Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, and the 4 Cylinders. We would start the night with the opening ceremonies and honoring once again the 2021 season champions. When the racing got underway we would start with the Sportsman Modified there were six heats and the winners would be David Boisclair, Dave Rodgers, Shane Pecore, Jamy Begor, Zach Buff, and Andrew Buff. Then next up we would have the Renegades for their two heats with wins going to Shawn Duquette and Zack Daniels. Then the Novice Sportsman Modified would have their heat and the win would go to Dale Gonyo. Then the heat racing would end with the 4 cylinders having their two hears and the winners would be Nate and Bill Doner to end the heat racing the night. Although that would not be the end of qualifying as with the large amount of Sportsman Modified they would need three Last Chance Qualifiers to finish out the field for the A-Main and the winners would be Michael Wagner, and Richie Simmons, and Beau Reeves. With all the qualifying down it would be on to the main events of the evening and the first one up would be the Taylor Rental 4 Cylinders with last year's champion Nate Smart starting on the pole he would hold upfront and get the first race win of the season but not without stiff competition from Greg Zindler and Nate Harden who would round out the top three. The next main event of the evening would be the showcase event as the Dirtcar Sportsman Modified North/East Series would take to the track for 40 laps with a packed 33 cars starting. After a few opening lap crashes the cars would be pulled to the pits and the rest of the evening would be postponed as they deemed the track unsafe as drivers were unable to see the car in front of them with the dust spray. The rest of the event including the Sportsman Modified race will be rescheduled to a later date. The Airborne Speedway will be back in action next weekend May 7th with the return of the 358 Modifieds. Gallery
