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

The first race out on the track would also be a main inside of the Super Stock division and the track would definitely still be a little moisture still in the track as they would have issues keeping the cars under control doing the best in the wet would be Tyler Bushey bringing home the victory. Next up as far as the mains would be the Mod Lites and you would see a return to the track familiar one in victory lane as Tucker Halliday would get the 20 lap win. Then to track would be the 358 Modified Series for a 60 lap event and getting the lead off the start is Ryan Barlett. He would be able to hold the lead to lap 30 when he made a mistake and Erick Rudolph capitalize and took the lead. Although he would not be able to cruise away and hide as Billy Dunn and Tim Fuller would be hard-charging trying to take it away but Erick Rudolph would hold on for the win. Then the last race of the night/morning would be Sportsman Modified in the 8th annual Pete Mitchell memorial event. Corey Castell would take the lead off the start of the 54 lap race. On lap 14 Dave Rodgers would use a lapper a pick and take the leade over Castell. From there Dave Rodgers would be in control for his first at the Mohawk International Raceway but that would not be without challenge Dan Rombough and Ryan Shanhann with that racing would come to end at about three in the morning and it would be quick rest and onto night #2 at mohawk nationals.
