RUTLAND, VT -- The northeastern stock car racing community is buzzing about Devil’s Bowl Speedway. Nearly 150 drivers, team owners, and crew members gathered Sunday at the track’s first “town meeting” to discuss the West Haven, VT facility’s future.
Meeting with new Devil’s Bowl Speedway owner/promoters Mike and Alayne Bruno in a segmented, open-forum summit that lasted more than five hours, racers from all over Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire expressed suggestions, concerns, and progressive ideas to lead the track into the future.
“I am honored by the turnout that we had here for the Devil’s Bowl town meeting,” said Mike Bruno, who spoke with competitors at the Holiday Inn-Rutland in Rutland, VT. “The support already being shown for our new effort is overwhelming. Everyone knows that we’ve got work to do, but it appears that the racers want to work together and with us as managers for the betterment of everyone. That’s very, very important.”
The town meeting was broken into three segments -- the open-wheel Modified division, full-fender asphalt Late Models, and a combined meeting for eight-cylinder Renegades and four-cylinder Bombers -- with questions asked and answered specific to each group. Items discussed included rules on engines and tires for each division, race purses, technical inspection policies, race procedure policies, race dates and start times, and ways to bring competitors together as a community.
True to the intent of the first town meeting, few absolute decisions were made by management. Input was received from nearly every attendee, however, and future meetings will be held during the off-season to discuss matters further.
“The lines of communication are open, and that’s what we wanted to establish,” Alayne Bruno said. “We were confident before the meeting that we would be able to elevate Devil’s Bowl into, as we’re saying, ‘a place you want to race’ in 2012. The town meeting backed up that belief. Sunday was a great day for this race track.”
Announcements will be made in the coming weeks regarding all facets of the 2012 season at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Mike Bruno at (802) 236-9141 or Justin St. Louis at (802) 355-3282.
