WEST HAVEN, VT – Devil's Bowl Speedway has postponed its asphalt stock car racing season finale to Saturday night, September 19 due to rain. Extra-distance feature events will be run to close out the Mekkelsen RV Vermont 200 Championship Weekend, and champions will be crowned for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series presented by Yandow Sales & Service and John Deere.
First-round qualifying races were completed on Saturday, September 12 before wet weather moved into the area overnight. Morning showers and a forecast for continued rain throughout the day on Sunday forced the postponement.

The Bond Auto Parts Modified division will run twin 50-lap feature races as Ron Proctor and Vince Quenneville Jr. vie for the track championship. Josh Masterson will try to wrap up his first championship in the Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Model division with a 100-lap main event, while Robert Gordon aims at the Brileya's Chrysler-Jeep Renegade championship and Chris LaVair goes for the Portland Glass Mini Stock title. The MFT Sauce & Rub Co. Enduro Series will also be in action with a 50-lap race.
