Heritage Family Credit Union Members Admitted Free on Saturday at Vermont 200
Event kicks off season's biggest weekend of racing at Devil's Bowl Speedway
For Immediate Release
WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil's Bowl Speedway will once again open its gates to welcome all Heritage Family Credit Union members on the afternoon of Saturday, September 10 at 1:00 p.m. After the annual HFCU "Member Night" event was postponed last month by weather, officials agreed to reschedule the offer for the opening day of the "Vermont 200 Weekend" – the season's biggest stock car racing event at the Rutland County facility.
The Vermont 200 Weekend's Saturday Asphalt Track event includes a 50-lap feature race for the Bond Auto Parts Sportsman Modified division of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, which sets the stage for Sunday's championship finale. Jason Durgan and Vince Quenneville Jr. are locked in a tie for the point lead entering the weekend in one of the most exciting title fights in Devil's Bowl Speedway's 50 seasons of racing.
Also on the Saturday program are qualifying heat races for the Sportsman Modifieds, the Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegades, and the Portland Glass Mini Stocks. The annual 10-lap "Shootout" races for drivers who have yet to win a feature race in 2016 are also on the card for all four of the track's weekly asphalt divisions including the Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Models. In addition, Sportsman Modified and Renegade drivers will turns the controls over to their teammates in the annual Mechanic Races, and the Mini Stocks will have a ladies-only "Powder Puff" race.
Sunday's jam-packed card has two full events – an afternoon event on the half-mile Asphalt Track at 1:00 p.m. to include a 100-lap Late Model race, the 50-lap "Leon Gonyo Memorial" Sportsman race, and more; and an evening event on the 3/10-mile Dirt Track at 6:30 p.m. to include the Interstate All Battery Center "Vince Quenneville Sr. Memorial" Sportsman race and a wild-and-crazy, multi-surface Enduro Series race.
The Saturday event is free to any Heritage Family Credit Union member in good standing who presents proof of valid membership at the ticket window on race day. Acceptable items to obtain free entry include checkbooks, debit cards, or recent bank statements; only one person will be admitted per account. Free HFCU member admission is not applicable toward the purchase of a two-day or "all events" ticket.
General admission for non-HFCU members is just $10.00 for adults and free for kids age 12 and under. Special multi-event tickets are also available; the three-race "all event" package is just $30.00 for adults.
