WEEDSPORT, NY – Northeast racing is set for an action-packed adventure in 2022 with the DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, Pro Stocks and Sportsman competing in an assortment of high-profile events, including the 50th NAPA Super DIRT Week.

Between the three divisions, DIRTcar Northeast racing will compete at 13 of the best tracks across New York, and a few beyond.

The 358 Modifieds will venture to Brockville Ontario Speedway, in Brockville, ON, along with the Sportsman, which will also make two trips to Bear Ridge Speedway in Vermont. A couple weeks after NAPA Super DIRT Week, the Pro Stocks and Sportsman will head south again to compete in the Drydene World Short Track Championship in North Carolina.
