For Immediate Release                                                         DBS-101212-1


WEST HAVEN, VT – It’s hell on wheels and Halloween at 100 miles per hour when Devil’s Bowl Speedway opens its gates for the Vermonster 150 Enduro on Saturday, October 20 at 1:00pm.  The rock-‘em-sock-‘em survival race will be held no matter if the forecast calls for rain, shine, snow, or vampire attack.  The event is open to any car, mini-van, or light-duty pickup truck that meets specifications.


Entries have already been filed from all corners of Vermont and eastern New York State, and many more are expected leading up to the race.  Should 50 or more racers compete, the victory will be worth a cool $1,500 – all indications indicate a full field will be on hand.  Enduros are run regardless of track or weather conditions, and typically contain a few metal-crunching, bone-jarring, crowd-pleasing wrecks and lots of wild and crazy racing action.  Races are only stopped by a red flag in the event of an emergency.  Vehicles are virtually street-legal with only safety modifications allowed.  All teams are required to provide a scorer for the event, and the first driver completing the full 150-lap distance will be named the winner.

Eric “Mongo” Messier of Hinesburg, VT has won both of the Enduro events held at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in 2012, and is expected to try for the three-peat.  He’ll square off against Hunter “Goose” Murray of Cambridge, VT, Bret “The Jet” Williams of Sudbury, VT, the father-son team of “Wild Bill” Fountain and “Mr. Bojangles” Shawn Fountain of Altona, NY, and many others.  Several drivers from regular stock car racing divisions have expressed interest in competing in the Vermonster 150 and are expected to enter – they’ll be welcome to do so, but will be handicapped to the back of the starting field.

Also on tap for the Vermonster event are the popular and unpredictable Spectator Races, in which race fans push their every-day street vehicles to the test in one-on-one, single-lap elimination races.  Winners in 2012 have included Addison, VT resident Gary Grant in his 2008 Ford Mustang and a 1982 Pontiac Grand Prix piloted by Pat Cram of Whitehall, NY.  A Halloween costume contest will also be held, in which race fans of all ages are encouraged to dress up in their most creative costume designs for prizes.

General admission for the Vermonster 150 Enduro is only $5.00 for adults, teens, and seniors, and free for children age 12 and under.  The entry fee for Enduro competitors is $50, which includes a pit pass for the driver.  Pit crew members and Spectator Race participants will be admitted for $30.  Rules and entry blanks for the Vermonster 150 Enduro are available online at www.devilsbowlspeedwayvt.com or by calling (802) 265-3112.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, VT, four miles north of Exit 2 on US Route 4.  For more information, call (802) 265-3112 or click www.devilsbowlspeedwayvt.com.  Devil’s Bowl Speedway is on Facebook at facebook.com/devilsbowlspeedway and Twitter at @DevilsBowlSpeed.
