Les Slingshot de REVSTAR
Jeudi 29 novembre 2012 – Dave Paryzo – Directeur des communications RPM Speedway
Afin de satisfaire le plus grand nombre de catégorie possible à chacun des programmes, l’équipe du RPM Speedway est fier d’annoncer la création du « Mini RPM Superspeedway » au centre de la piste actuel. Celui-ci aura pour but de présenter des courses pour les classes Slingshots, Mini Mod ou GoKart, débutant en après midi avec des épreuves de qualifications et se poursuivant durant les intermissions avec la classe vedette de la soirée. Celle-ci effectuera sa finale durant la préparation du circuit principal. Cette initiative est dans le but ultime d’offrir le meilleur spectacle aux amateurs avec des courses en continu sans interruption. Toute l’équipe du RPM Speedway travaillera d’arrache-pied pour bâtir une nouvelle génération de champions qui graduera dans les ligues majeures dans les années à venir.
Pourquoi le nom de « Mini RPM Superspeedway » ? Tout simplement puisque ce sera la plus grande des « petites pistes » au Canada pour les catégories de la relève.
Les dirigeants du circuit de St-Marcel-sur-le-Richelieu voudraient remercier Martin Lizotte, d’Excavation J-C Lizotte et Carl Labonté, propriétaire de REVSTAR pour leur implication dans les travaux du « Mini RPM Superspeedway ».

CHARLOTTE, NC – Devil’s Bowl Speedway stock car drivers Ron Proctor and Vince Quenneville, Jr., will be among the honorees at a black-tie gala for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series on Friday, December 7. The ceremony, held in the Crown Ballroom at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC, will feature top short track racers from more than 50 tracks in the United States and Canada.
Proctor, of Charlton, NY, will collect hardware for his second straight Devil’s Bowl Speedway Track Championship and Vermont State Division I Championship under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Proctor earned the title racing in the Bond Auto Parts Modified division at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, VT, where he posted three victories and finished seventh or better in all 18 NWAAS events at the track in 2012. Proctor finished 68th in national NWAAS Division I standings, with his total point fund winnings expected to top $5,000.
Brandon, VT driver Quenneville will be honored as the Vermont State Rookie of the Year for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Although he is a veteran of 25 years behind the wheel, Quenneville qualified for the NWAAS rookie program due to his status as a first-time NASCAR Division I license holder. With five victories, Quenneville finished second in overall track and state standings to Proctor, and ranked a close second in NWAAS national rookie standings behind only Brian Parker of Oklahoma.
Other drivers receiving honors at the NASCAR Hall of Fame will include NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam of Semora, NC, and national runner-up Keith Rocco of Wallingford, CT, who competed at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in May. The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series sanctions weekly stock car racing at more than 50 asphalt and dirt tracks in North America under a common championship point structure; each driver’s best 18 results in designated Division I events are counted toward their state and national point totals.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway will honor Proctor, Quenneville, and the local champions and top rookies from all of its four weekly racing divisions at the Banquet of Champions, scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Rutland-Killington in Rutland, VT. More details regarding the festivities will made available soon.
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.
New Crazy Horse Racing Chassis To Carry No. 16ME Colors
ENOSBURG, Vt. – Richard Green Racing will have a brand new look for 2013.
Longtime ACT Late Model Tour team owner Richard Green will field a brand new Crazy Horse Racing chassis next season, and he will fill the seat with Oxford Plains Speedway veteran Travis Stearns of Auburn, Maine.
Stearns joins Richard Green Racing as part of a two-car effort, one which will continue to also compete in weekly Late Model competition at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, Vt., with Joey Becker of Graniteville, Vt.
“I'm really excited about it,” Green said. “Obviously, I've known (Crazy Horse Racing owner Mitch Green, no relation) for quite a while. Their track record is moving up the scale as far has having good cars and having all the pieces in place.”
Stearns has competed full-time at Oxford Plains in the past while making a few ACT Late Model starts. He finished second in the final Oxford point standings in 2012 with two victories. He also posted a Top-5 finish in the 39th annual Oxford 250 and won the reserve Milk Bowl at Thunder Road in October.
For the first time in his career, Stearns will not serve as the owner of his own car.
“With all the pieces of the puzzle that we're putting together, it's going to be a perfect fit,” Stearns said. “I really believe that. Just talking with (Green) and talking with Joey Becker, he said you won't find a better car owner. That's comforting and exciting.”
Stearns has had an eye on full-time competition on the ACT Late Model Tour for some time, but he said it was never a possibility while fielding his own team.
“When I started out, my goal always to run the ACT Tour. I never knew if I'd get there, because I wanted to stay within my means and race,” Stearns said. “Then this opportunity came. It's the best shot I have ever had to be competitive. Let's face it, I wouldn't be competitive on my own without the people, the resources that (Richard Green Racing) has.”
After finishing 13th in the ACT owner standings last season with multiple drivers, Green is looking forward to the stability of both driver and car next summer.
“It's the first time I've had a car come out of a professional race shop,” Green said. “The Tour car has always been at a couple other shops with other drivers, and it doesn't always work out for the best.
“I wasn't sure who was going to drive. I had a couple guys on a short list, but nobody wanted to commit to doing the work. They all want to drive, but not all of them want to do the work, too.When Mitch called (about Travis), we all sat down and talked about it and thought it would be the way to go.”
Green has also hired Mickey Green to serve as crew chief for the No. 16ME Richard Green Trucking/Green's ACE Hardware Chevrolet. Green, a fabricator at Crazy Horse Racing, previously served as crew chief for Austin Theriault on the ACT Late Model Tour.
“I absolutely have higher expectations now,” Richard Green said. “The reason being, the car's coming out of that race shop – a professional race shop. It's not somebody's hobby, it's their profession. It's because Mickey's helped Austin, Mitch's experience with the cars, and Travis doing what he's done last year. If the chips fall our way, I think we're easily a Top-10 Tour car right now. If things go well, we might be a Top-5 Tour car.”
The 14-race ACT Late Model Tour schedule begins on Sunday, April 14, at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, N.H., with the Governor's Cup 150.
