Truck & Tractor Pulls, Demolition Derby, Drag Racing Coming to Devil's Bowl Speedway

New motorsports events to highlight busy summer

 

For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                                 DBS-022417-1

 

WEST HAVEN, Vt. – The ground will shake in 2017 with a series of exciting, all-new motorsports events at Devil's Bowl Speedway.  The scenic Vermont facility has added a slate of new, high-adrenalin attractions for motorsports fans of all kinds, promising to bring a thrill to fans of all types of horsepower.  While weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series-sanctioned stock car racing continues on the asphalt oval on Saturday nights and on the dirt oval on Sunday nights, the new events will offer a different style of heart-pounding action.

Trucks and tractors will have a thundering presence at Devil's Bowl in 2017.  The inaugural "Rutland County Rumble" will be held on Saturday, May 13, as the region's top pulling tractors and trucks will be on hand for an intense display of power and torque.  The popular Altered Farm Tractor class will headline the program, and also chasing the "full pull" will be three truck divisions: Super Stock 4x4, 2.6 Pro Diesel, and 2.5 Diesel.

The pulling event begins at 12:00 noon on May 13, followed that same evening by a wild-and-crazy Demolition Derby – the first at Devil's Bowl Speedway in several years.  The hard-hitting smashfest is open to any 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder car and will see action through heats, consolations, and a $1,000-to-win feature event.

Truck & Tractor Pulls return on Saturday, July 8, at 12:00 noon, for a second earthshaking event with the same four classes.  The pulling show kicks off "Fast 'N' Dirty Weekend" which also features the New England Pro Truck Series in the "Fast 55" Saturday night on the Asphalt Track and the "Dirty 30" Sunday night on the Dirt Track.

Devil's Bowl is also revving up with another kind of straight-line speed at the brand new "Show & Go" Wednesday Night Drag Series.   The four-race series is old-school fun all the way: A 200-foot, two-lane drag strip will be set up on the frontstretch of the Asphalt Track with heads-up, double-elimination bracket races crowning winners in each class.  Trophies and bragging rights will be on the line on May 24June 21July 19, and August 23.

The drags are open to anyone with a valid driver's license, with no experience required.  Virtually any kind of motorized vehicle is welcome including cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, ATVs, and more; vehicles will be paired up with similar entries across a variety of racing brackets.  Pit passes will be just $10.00, plus a $10.00 registration fee per bracket for racers.  Grandstand admission is just $5.00 per person and free for kids age 12 and under.

Also on tap for the first time are the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience and the Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience.  Fans can strap in and drive or ride along in real Late Models, Modifieds, and Sprint Cars following a morning training curse with professional instructors.  The Wallace Racing Experience will be at Devil's Bowl Speedway on the Asphalt Track on Saturday, August 26, and on the Dirt Track on Sunday, August 27; for more information, visit www.RaceWithRusty.com or www.DirtRaceWithKenny.com.

Rules and information for all pulling, demolition derby, and drag racing events are now available on Devil's Bowl Speedway's official website atwww.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com under the "Info" tab.

Corliss, Linardy Post First Official ACT Full-Season Entries

Corliss, Linardy Post First Official ACT Full-Season Entries

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                  ACT022317-04

Waterbury, VT –Barre, VT's Jason Corliss and Somerville, MA's Jim Linardy have filed the first official full season entries for the American Canadian Tour's (ACT's) 2017 season.  The 10-race ACT Late Model Tour Championship will kick off on Sunday, April 9 with the New Hampshire Governor's Cup 150 at Lee USA Speedway.

 

Corliss hopes to carry forward his late-season momentum, after finishing as runner-up in the 2016 Vermont Milk Bowl at Thunder Road in October.  Always a quiet, steady competitor, Corliss cut his racing teeth at Thunder Road, capturing the Street Stock title early in his career, moving through the Tiger Sportsman division, and eventually on to the ACT Late Models.  With support of owner Chris Burnett and Burnett Scrap Metals, the #66VT team is setting their sights on top of the ACT standings in 2017.

 

"Chris (Burnett) has provided me with an exciting opportunity for these past couple of seasons, and with the dedication of my crew, I can't wait for the first green flag of the season!" said an excited Corliss.  "Racing is my passion, and to be able to compete at this level is certainly the realization of a dream for me", he concluded.

 

Based in Somerville, MA, Jimmy Linardy and his #77MA crew are among the most popular teams in the pits at any ACT event.  For more than a decade the Kayem Hot Dogs entry has been a familiar sight at ACT events on both sides of the border, and the positivity of the Linardy crew is infectious.  With a new car currently being prepared, Linardy is anxious to get back on the track.  "My crew and I have a great time at any and every event we attend – we are fortunate that our series enjoys the participation of such wonderful guys – it's like a family outing everywhere we go", said a smiling Linardy.

 

The ACT Late Model Tour will visit 8 different tracks throughout the Northeast during the 2017 season, with the traditional season-opener set for Lee USA Speedway on Saturday, April 9.

10th Annual NASCAR Diversity Awards Spotlights Industry Efforts

10th Annual NASCAR Diversity Awards Spotlights Industry Efforts

Ten Honorees To Be Recognized For Their Commitment To Multicultural & Diversity

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 23, 2017) – From Daniel Suárez's historic NASCAR XFINITY Series championship to the efforts from NASCAR tracks, teams, sponsors and partners, the last year represented tremendous progress in the areas of diversity within the sport.

 

NASCAR and industry leaders will gather Thursday at the Daytona International Speedway to recognize those leading the efforts in shaping a multicultural sport with the 10th Annual NASCAR Diversity Awards.

 

"Diversity and multiculturalism is a top priority at NASCAR, and the NASCAR Diversity Awards is a great event to honor all those from across our industry who are making tremendous strides in this area," said NASCAR Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian France. "As we continue to see more diversity on the track, in the boardroom and in the stands, we will see a rise in talent and we will appeal to an even wider fan base.  We want to thank our stakeholders and partners for their dedication to the continued growth of our sport."

 

The NASCAR Diversity Awards will stream live on FansChoice.tv, beginning at 11 a.m.

 

To be recognized for their outstanding achievements will be:

 

• Daniel Suarez will receive the NASCAR Ignition Award, given to a minority or female NASCAR national series driver that demonstrates leadership both on and off the race track while making contributions to the advancement of the sport. In addition to being the first Mexican-born driver to win a race in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and becoming first foreign-born driver to win a NASCAR national series championship, Suarez has been active away from the track in reaching new young and diverse fans.

 

• Jesse Iwuji will be given the NASCAR Diverse Driver Award, given to a minority or female NASCAR developmental driver that exemplifies outstanding performance both on and off the race track in encouraging awareness and interaction with NASCAR and motorsports. A graduate of the Naval Academy and a first-generation Nigerian-American, Iwuji has has taken NASCAR directly to the community, whether it's raising Naval recruitment efforts, STEM education or support of NASCAR Green efforts at a local California school.

 

• Peri Karslioglu will receive the NASCAR Diversity Internship Participant Award, presented to the student who has exhibited outstanding performance and leadership skills in academics as well as during their experience in the NASCAR Diversity Internship Program. Karslioglu is a cum laude graduate of Syracuse University and interned with The NASCAR Foundation last year. Karslioglu impressed with her fresh perspective on social media and, industry engagement and marketing efforts, landing a full-time position with the Foundation as a marketing coordinator.

 

• ALPFA – the Association of Latino Professionals For America, will be presented the NASCAR Institution Award, which goes to a company that demonstrates a commitment to NASCAR diversity and inclusion goals through its program support and engagement with NASCAR. ALPFA has worked closely with NASCAR since 2014 to promote business-to-business efforts throughout the motorsports industry. Through exclusive events and at-track immersions, ALPFA has led the way in increasing Latino participation in key NASCAR programs.

 

• Hailie Deegan will be awarded the Young Racer Award, presented to a minority or female youth between the ages of 8-15 years old that has partaken in some form of competitive racing and has overcome adversity in pursuit of his or her dream of participating in the motorsports industry. The 15-year-old from Temecula, California, Deegan competed in 2016 for Rev Racing in a Legends car in the Bojangles Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway and was one of the youngest drivers to earn an invitation to the 2016 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine.

 

• Smithfield will receive the NASCAR Partner Award, given to a company that demonstrates a commitment to NASCAR diversity goals through its program support and engagement. With goals of making better communities throughout our county, Smithfield's sponsorship of Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) and driver Aric Almirola has amplified its outreach efforts and created a difference-making partnership. Last year, Smithfield and RPM partnered for school events in California and Illinois to promote staying in school, working directly with schools with a high-percentage of Hispanic and low-income students.

 

• Kenyatta Houston will be presented the NASCAR Diverse Crew Member Award. The award goes to a minority or woman crew member that inspires awareness of NASCAR through competitive performance and outreach activities. A former football player and 2005 graduate of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Pit Crew program, Houston has been to Victory Lane in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series. Outside the race track, Houston continues to give back to the community – from helping the Drive for Diversity Pit Crew program to train the next generation of crew members to volunteering with Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity and Mooresville Christian Mission.

 

• Pocono Raceway will be presented the NASCAR Track Award. The award goes to a track that identified and activated programming geared toward engaging a multicultural fan base by utilizing staff, community outreach and track assets. The "Tricky Triangle" has made significant efforts to reach out to an increasingly diverse population in the Poconos. Last year, it added a Spanish-language promotion for its NASCAR XFINITY Series race and included a video spotlighting NASCAR Diversity intern Antonio Russo as part of its overall activation to highlight family participation.

 

• Patriot Motorsports/Circle Track Racing will receive the NASCAR Team Award. The award goes to a team that engaged driver, OEM and sponsor support to effectively reach fans on and off the track in support of NASCAR's diversity and inclusion goals. Circle Track Racing, owned by John Wood, a driver himself, has provided an opportunity for drivers to gain valuable seat time and experience. Wood and driver Jesse Iwuiji's Patriot Motorsports are actively involved in self-funded promotion and activation around the race weekends and have continued to go above and beyond in driving awareness to a young and diverse audience.

 

• Josh Avila will be recognized with the Industry Ambassador Award. The award spotlights a representative who displays a personal effort to incorporate multicultural initiatives as part of his or her job. Avila has made the track's multicultural initiatives a major focus for the last decade. Josh has built meaningful relationships with the Hispanic community and his successes have profound impact beyond his track. He spearheaded the first Spanish language section of the FanZone, incorporated Mexican celebrities and drivers into the track's events and media outreach, and has worked to expand the track's engagement with the Asian market.

 

The NASCAR national series championship season gets underway at Daytona International Speedway on Friday night with the NextEra Energy Resources 250 for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, followed by Saturday's Powershares QQQ 300 for the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The 59th running of the DAYTONA 500 will beSunday, with the green flag for the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season at 2 p.m. ET, live on FOX, Motor Racing Network Radio, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

DAN WOODS FROM ‘CHOP CUT REBUILD’ AND THE DEGRASSI TV SHOWS TO APPEAR AT MOTORAMA


DAN WOODS FROM 'CHOP CUT REBUILD'

AND THE DEGRASSI TV SHOWS TO APPEAR AT MOTORAMA

March 10, 11 & 12, 2017 at Toronto's International Centre

 

TORONTO, ON // FEBRUARY 21, 2017 • Some people are well known for doing one thing really well. While others become famous for excelling at more than one thing. In the case of Dan Woods, he definitely falls into the latter category.

 

The TV host / actor / writer / radio broadcaster / TV and film producer will be appearing all three days of the upcoming Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo Presented by Mothers. The show takes place March 10, 11 & 12 at The International Centre, across from Toronto's Pearson Airport.

 

Woods first came to be known to audiences, in 1987, playing the stern English teacher (and later principal), Mr. Raditch, on the Emmy Award-winning Degrassi television franchise (Degrassi Jr. High and Degrassi… The Next Generation), which continue to be broadcast around the globe.

 

In addition to acting, Woods – who originally hailed from Toronto – has a passion for automobiles. In 1997, he created, hosted, wrote and produced Classic Car Restorations, for Speed Channel.

 

And starting in 2003, this pioneer in automotive television was the host and driving force behind Chop Cut Rebuild, a documentary / 'how to' format show that featured the restoration and customization of the most popular classic cars in the genre. The show ran for 12 seasons, with more than 150 episodes to its credit. Since its creation, Chop Cut Rebuild has aired in upwards of 30 countries and continues to be televised on MAVTV.

 

Additionally, Woods has also overseen all aspects of production as Executive Producer for three other acclaimed TV series; Street Tuner Challenge,

American Seduction and First Crush.

 

While at Motorama, Woods will sign autographs and participate in some of the discussion panels and awards presentations on The Johnsonville Stage.

 

"I always love coming to Toronto and the opportunity to connect with fellow car lovers, at Motorama, is something I'm really looking forward to," said Woods, who first began tinkering with automobiles at his father's salvage yard in the city's west end. "Over the years, I've worked on the restoration of more than 40 classic or custom cars, so I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about – in terms of shared experiences and passions – at Motorama."

 

Speaking on behalf of Motorama, Greg MacPherson said, "Car lovers everywhere know and love Chop Cut Rebuild. And most Canadians grew up watching the Degrassi TV shows, which makes Dan doubly interesting to the people who will be at the show. Dan recently moved back to Canada, from California, so we're honoured that he's making one of his first 'return' appearances atMotorama."

 

Details regarding Dan Woods' autograph and appearance times will be available at MotoramaShow.com, prior to showtime.

 

ABOUT THE MOTORAMA CUSTOM CAR & MOTORSPORTS EXPO: The third annual Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo Presented by Mothers takes place March 10, 11 & 12, 2017 at The International Centre, across from Toronto's Pearson International Airport. The show features more than 300,000 square feet of custom cars, hot rods, racing vehicles of all kinds, tuners, displays and exhibitors. Motorama is Canada's biggest late-winter celebration of automobiles and motorsports. For information about the show, including tickets, sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities, and more, call (416) 962-7223, email info@MotoramaShow.com or visit www.MotoramaShow.com.

King Krup: Illinois Native Earns First Career Gator

BARBERVILLE, FL – February 20, 2017 – Will Krup was the man of the hour as he found a way to Victory Lane despite the strong field of UMP Modified contenders who were hungry for sweet victory during the second Gator Championship qualifying race during the 46th DIRTcar Nationals Sunday night. During the 20-lap feature, the top-five positions were juggled between Krup, polesitter Derek Fisher, Jacob Hawkins, Brian Ruhlman, Jeff Leka and Kenny Wallace.

Krup raced from third to take the lead late in the race and earn his first win of the 2017 DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. The victory was the second of the day for the Elite Chassis team after Krup's teammate, Nick Hoffman, won the first qualifying race of the day.

"I've got this car going really good," said Krup "Nick [Hoffman] he's got his car going and he's going to be a tough competitor to go against. We'll have to see what happens [tomorrow]."

Wallace battled fought his way from the ninth starting spot to finish third. He was outdone as the hard charger of the evening as Todd Neiheiser passed 19 cars on route from 26th to seventh.

"I'm really happy," said Wallace. "We started ninth. The bottom was slimy and I think I was the first one to find the middle."

"The thing about dirt racing is you can't ever slow up because you know people are coming behind you. You're just looking to fill every hole. You just have to keep digging. I'm happy with a third."

Hawkins, of Fairmont, WV, earned the runner-up spot after starting fourth. It added to his strong week, that includes a win on Tuesday night.

"The car was good," Hawkins said. "The 98 [of Fisher] and the 9 [of Krup] were battling hard middle to bottom, so I figured [the top] was my only shot to make my own lane. We fought hard. Congratulations to Will Krup, he deserves it."

Prior to Krup's A-Main triumph, Ruhlman set quick time in group time trials with a lap of 18.121 seconds, the fastest qualifying time of the week.

Krup, Hawkins, Fisher of Olympia, Ky, and Jeff Leka of Buffalo, Ill., earned heat race victories. All drivers qualified for the main event.

The top ten finishers of the feature will be in the running for the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds event at Volusia Speedway Park on Monday for their biggest race of the week, the 30-lap and $5,000-to-win Gator Championship along with a 30-lap main event for the DIRTcar Late Models.
