Devil's Bowl Speedway Announces Summer Schedule Changes

Three dates added, several adjustments made for both asphalt and dirt surfaces


For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                                 DBS-071916-1


WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Vermont's Devil's Bowl Speedway has announced a list of changes to its NASCAR Whelen All-American Series stock car racing schedule for the second half of the 50th season.  Three race dates have been added to the calendar at the Rutland County facility and several other adjustments have been made on existing dates, with many of the changes created to make up for cancellations due to rain earlier in the season.

The double-points Mid-Season Championships have been rescheduled for both the half-mile Asphalt Track and the 3/10-mile Dirt Track at Devil's Bowl.  The Asphalt Track will hold its Mid-Season event this Saturday, July 23 at a new start time of 7:00 p.m., presented by Friend Construction of Bristol, Vt.  With the Dirt Track off this week, the Mid-Season Championships will be held on Sunday, July 31 at 6:00 p.m.

The first added race date will be on the Dirt Track on Sunday, August 7 at 6:00 p.m., with double features on tap for the Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modified, Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegade, and Portland Glass Mini Stock divisions.  The Dirt Track will also add a date on Sunday, August 21 at 6:00 p.m., and the Sportsman Modifieds will run a special 38-lap "Tribute Series" race in the rescheduled "Vince Quenneville Sr. Memorial" event presented by Interstate All Battery Center of Rutland.

The Asphalt Track will add an event on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, September 3 at 7:00 p.m., with a four-division card presented by The Rutland Herald including the Bond Auto Parts Sportsman Modifieds, Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Models, Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegades, and Portland Glass Mini Stocks.

The addition of the new race dates means that Devil's Bowl Speedway will now have racing on both Saturdays and Sundays for a seven-week stretch from July 30-31 through the Vermont 200 Asphalt Championship Weekend on September 10-11.

Other changes include the addition of Sportsman Twin 25s on the Asphalt on both July 30 and August 13, and the annual three-segment Asphalt Mini Stock special event – originally planned for this week – has been moved to August 20.  The "Tribute Series" 50-lap Sportsman race honoring inaugural Devil's Bowl champion Mert "Socks" Hulbert has been rescheduled for the Dirt Track on Sunday, September 18, after being rained out in May.

Finally, fireworks shows have been added at three events, the first being at the fifth annual Carrara Masonry & Concrete "C.J. Richards Memorial 67" Sportsman event on the Asphalt on August.  Both tracks will have fireworks on Labor Day weekend, September 3-4.

The Friend Construction Asphalt Mid-Season Championships on Saturday, July 23feature four divisions of racing action and the popular Kids' Racecar Rides program at intermission.  Regular admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and free for kids age 12 and under.  Gates open at 5:00 p.m., with racing at 7:00 p.m.
