AKWESASNE, NY – December 10, 2012 - When Mohawk International Raceway made the difficult decision to drop the Pro Stock division from its weekly lineup for 2013 season, there was a lot of feedback from the racers in that division. A meeting was put together to try and help save the class, and after overwhelming support the track will now bring back the Pro Stocks for next season.
The Pro Stock meeting was held at the track on Thursday, December 7th and drew support from many local teams trying to keep the division going. The support got the attention of the Mohawk International Raceway staff, which was the reason behind reversing their earlier decision.
In addition to being part of the weekly schedule in 2013 the Pro Stocks will also have a date booked for the Mohawk Racing Parts Pro Stock Series. Track officials are also working to keep their three race series that they have had the past couple seasons.
Any information or questions regarding the Pro Stock division should be forwarded to Jody Swamp. He can be reached at 518-651-4913.
Mohawk International Raceway staff would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and we look forward to seeing you in 2013. Stay tuned to our website for all the latest off-season news, including banquet information which will be available after the New Year.
