WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil's Bowl Speedway's landmark 50th season will be one to remember in 2016.  Officials have overhauled the stock car racing schedule for the historic Rutland County facility, and the calendar will be packed with exciting, family-oriented, NASCAR-sanctioned events on both of Devil's Bowl's race tracks – a fast half-mile paved oval and a tight three-tenths-mile clay oval – situated on Route 22A in West Haven, Vt.

The asphalt will make a big change as it moves to a new Saturday night slot at 6:00 p.m.beginning on May 21; the track had previously operated on Fridays.  The Bond Auto Parts Modified division will again headline the program in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series presented by Yandow Sales & Service and John Deere, along with Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Models, Brileya's Chrysler-Jeep Renegades, and Portland Glass Mini Stocks.

Highlight events will include the return of the American-Canadian Tour Late Models for the People's United Bank 100 on June 4, the Coca-Cola Firecracker Spectacular on July 2, the fifth annual C.J. Richards Memorial 67 Modified event on August 6, and the Vermont 200 Championship Weekend on September 10-11.

The Dirt Track at Devil's Bowl will also see big changes in its third season as the schedule sees a major expansion to 13 events primarily on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m.  The Dirt Track is scheduled to open on Sunday, May 22 and will also compete under NASCAR Whelen All-American Series sanction with the Sportsman Modified class as the headline division.  Support classes will include the Renegade and Mini Stock divisions and appearances by other divisions including the Sprint Cars of New England tour.

Dates for major special events on The Dirt Track will be announced soon, including The Stove Depot "King of the Clay" Sportsman 100 and the second annual Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals.  The asphalt and dirt tracks will run on back-to-back nights on eight different weekends during the season.

"This schedule is something that we're really proud of, and I personally can't wait for the 50th season of racing at Devil's Bowl," promoter Mike Bruno said.  "There are still many more announcements that we'll be making during the winter that will only add to the excitement."

Devil's Bowl Speedway will honor its champions and top drivers from the 2015 season at the Holiday Inn Rutland-Killington in Rutland, Vt. on Saturday, January 30, 2016.  For tickets, contact Justin St. Louis at (802) 355-3282 or email devilsbowlspeedway@gmail.com.
