For Immediate Release 121511-1
WEST HAVEN, VT -- Devil’s Bowl Speedway has announced an action-packed 18-event championship stock car racing schedule for the 2012 season. The West Haven, VT track, a semi-banked asphalt half-mile sanctioned by the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, will host open-wheel Modified, full-fender Late Model, and entry-level Renegade and Bomber classes throughout the summer.
After a pair of Sunday afternoon open practice sessions on April 22 and 29, Devil’s Bowl Speedway’s 46th racing season opens with the historic Spring Green event on Sunday afternoon, May 6. The American-Canadian Tour Late Models will highlight the program, and the NASCAR Modified, Renegade and Bomber divisions will open their championship schedules at the event. Racing in all four weekly divisions will be held on Sunday afternoons for on May 13 and May 20 as well.
Memorial Day weekend will usher in a new tradition as Devil’s Bowl kicks off its summer schedule with the first of 13 Friday-night programs on May 25 at 7:30pm. Extra-distance races for the Modified and Late Model classes will be on tap. Weekly Friday night racing revs up and continues through the month of June including a special 50-lap event for the Renegade division on June 15.
A special 5:00pm twilight event on Wednesday, July 4 will feature the “Firecracker Twin 44s” for Modifieds and Late Models and a spectacular Independence Day fireworks extravaganza. Racing families can relax and enjoy a night off on Friday, July 6, before weekly racing returns with double pressure and double championship points on Friday, July 13 at the Mid-Season Championship. Bomber drivers will face their toughest test with a special race on August 3.
A built-in “open date” on Friday, August 10 will assist in the rescheduling of any weather-related postponements. Should the need to reschedule an event on that date not arise, teams will enjoy another week to regroup before the final three-week summer stretch. Titles will be decided in the NASCAR Modified and Late Model divisions on Friday, August 31.
The 2012 season will draw to a close on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, September 15-16, as Devil’s Bowl Speedway revives its classic “Vermont 200” weekend. Special events for all four divisions will be on tap including the Renegade and Bomber championship finales and major races for the Modified and Late Model classes.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get the 2012 season under way at Devil’s Bowl,” said new track co-owner Mike Bruno, who promotes the speedway with his wife, Alayne. “Our racers and fans will have 18 chances to be a part of history next summer, and we’re hopeful that our built-in weeks off will give everyone a chance to enjoy a break, recharge their batteries, and have a little more fun.”
The 2012 rulebook for Devil’s Bowl Speedway’s NASCAR Modified division will be released on the track’s website at www.devilsbowlspeedwayvt.com on Friday, December 16, and rulebooks for the Late Model, Renegade, and Bomber divisions will follow soon thereafter.
