Devil's Bowl Speedway Suffers Eighth Rainout on Sunday
Mid-Season Championships to be rescheduled, date to be named later
For Immediate Release DBS-073116-1
WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil's Bowl Speedway has postponed its Dirt Track racing program again due to intermittent afternoon rain showers and an uncertain forecast on Sunday, July 31. The double-points Mid-Season Championship event, presented by Whelen Engineering, will be rescheduled for a date to be announced soon.
The weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, and Mini Stocks were on the card, along with the Outlaw Midget Series. Including race events and practice days, Sunday registers as the eighth rainout at the Rutland County facility in 2016.
"There have been multiple periods of rain here at the speedway on Sunday and several forecasts call for more precipitation this evening," Devil's Bowl Speedway promoter Mike Bruno said. "Of course we want to race, but we are not willing to force our race teams and fans to spend their time and money to travel to Devil's Bowl only to get rained on again. It doesn't make good sense from a racer's perspective, or from our business perspective."
Racing returns on Saturday, August 6 at 7:00 p.m. on the half-mile Asphalt Track as Carrara Masonry & Concrete presents the fifth annual "C.J. Richards Memorial" 67-lap event for Sportsman Modifieds. Also on the program are Late Models, Renegades, Mini Stocks, a 50-lap Enduro Series race, and fireworks. Special general admission is $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (62+) and teens (13-17), and free for kids 12 and under.
The 3/10-mile Dirt Track returns to action on Sunday, August 7 at 6:00 p.m., with double features for Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, and Mini Stocks. General admission at each event is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+) and teens (13-17), and free for kids 12 and under.
Devil's Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, Vt., four miles north of Exit 2 off of U.S. Route 4 and just 20 minutes from Rutland, Vt.
