Peterborough Speedway Opens the Flood Gates for Fan Appreciation Night


Peterborough Speedway Opens the Flood Gates for Fan Appreciation Night

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media


Disney had Fantasia. Three times each season, Canada's Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval has Fan Appreciation Night with Toonie Spectator Grandstand Admission. Saturday, June 4thPeterborough Speedway's home track Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Jiffy Lube Mini Stock, Renegade Truck and Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model divisions were joined by the INEX Ontario Legends for a spectacular night of action that also included an on-track autograph session at intermission.


Feature race action got rolling with the Renegade Truck division, as Stacey and Stephen Bierworth brought the field to the Great Canadian RV green flag. What the class may have lacked in quantity, they made up for with quality as Chris Burrage and Jack Dallin waged a spirited battle at the front of the pack, racing each other clean and hard. Burrage grabbed the win, with Dallin on his tailgate. Doug Dallin and the father/daughter Bierworth duo completed the top 5.


The Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun field was next to roll from the staging area, as Ray Schroer and Connor Parkes brought the pack to the line. Griffin Powell would fight the leaders for the front spot, before taking the lead with 7 laps showing on the scoreboard. The #13 machine had nearly half a straightaway lead on his way to the win over Matthew Vanderbelt, Schroer, Colin Parkes and Shawn Soloman.


Jamie Riberdy and Cole Ledson paced the INEX Ontario Legends Series starting grid to the stripe for what would become an action-packed 25 lap affair. After an early yellow flag, Nicholas Ledson executed a patented top to bottom pass to take the lead, with Kevin Foisy on his tail. The #57 would grab the position heading into the 3rd turn on the 13th lap, but the pair spun between the 1st and 2nd turns. Foisy was sent to the back, while Ledson was parked because of rough driving by series officials. With 15 circuits complete, Matt Haufe put the on-track drama in his rear-view mirror and took a lead he wouldn't relinquish. Foisy rebounded to finish 2nd, with Riberdy, Mike Getliffe and Robin Jongen rounding out the top 5.


When it comes to putting on a show, the Jiffy Lube Mini Stock division at Peterborough Speedway gets the job done. Ember Junkin and Kevin Strutt brought the pack to the green flag, but Brandon Hannah grabbed an early lead and James Townsend came along to join the fun. The pair worked their way through lapped traffic to perfection in the caution-free event. Defending track champion Tyler Junkin was 3rd, with Strutt and Ember Junkin completing the top 5 spots in the running order.


As the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model pack hit the track, officials were looking at an issue with the starting line-up. With Bryan Sudsbury and Ryan Kimball on the front row, there would need to be a change. Kimball had qualified the car, but Chris Mitchell was running the feature. The driver swap would move the #22 machine to the rear of the field and put Tyler Betts to the outside of the front row. Betts took the lead early, with Rick Spencer-Walt slipping into second. The pair survived several caution flags and put on a show for the fans; swapping the lead back and forth, lap after lap. Even as the field took the checkered flag, the excitement wouldn't dissipate. Spencer-Walt claimed the close win over Betts. Mitchell, Sudsbury and Mark Gordon were next across the line to finish the top 5. 


Earlier in the night, Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun heat races were won by Dave Feeney, Jeremy Kelly, Griffin Powell and Matthew Vanderbelt. Rick Spencer-Walt with a pair, Tyler Betts and Jack Horner took the preliminary round action for the Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Models, while Chris Burrage and defending track champion Jack Dallin shared the qualifying event wins for the Renegade Truck division. Dave Riopelle with a pair, Cole and Nicholas Ledson took the INEX Ontario Legends Series openers. James Townsend had a pair of Jiffy Lube Mini Stock heat wins, while the others went to Brandon Hannah and defending track champion Tyler Junkin.


Bullring bullet points: Ray Begbie of Oshawa left with $1159 in the night's 50/50 draw…Peterborough's Mike Wallace suffered engine troubles during practice. The team took the car back to their shop to swap power plants, but was unable to return for the Late Model main event…Rick Eades made hard contact with the front stretch wall during Ontario Legends warm-ups. Strong teamwork by his crew and others with the series allowed the #22 machine to get back into action…Drew Stieler's #99 made its first start of the season with the Late Model field…The next Fan Appreciation/Toonie Spectator Grandstand Admission Night – presented by Pepsi – is scheduled for Saturday, July 9th.


Action returns Saturday, June 11th with Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Jiffy Lube Mini Stock, Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car, Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Model classes, plus the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series and Kid's Rides. Pit gates open at 3:00, with the spectator areas unlocked at 5:00 and racing underway at 6:00.

Travis Bruno takes first Sportsman Modified victory


For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                                 DBS-060416-1


WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Nick Sweet proved again that he is one of the best Late Model stock car drivers on the Asphalt Track at Devil's Bowl Speedway, winning the People's United Bank John Bruno Memorial 100 on Saturday, June 4.  The Barre, Vt., racer took the fourth long-distance victory of his career at the track and his first in an American-Canadian Tour race after a long fight with Wayne Helliwell Jr. Sweet's triumph headlined a winners list that included Travis Bruno, Jim McKiernan, and Harold LaVair Jr.

Sweet led the first 29 laps of the main event before giving way to Helliwell.  The race ran caution-free for the first 79 laps as Dover, N.H., driver Helliwell led Sweet through heavy lapped traffic, running three-wide and making breathtaking passes on several occasions.  Four yellow flags slowed the pace in the final stages, however, setting up a final duel.  Sweet nosed ahead before the final caution period on lap 91, then Helliwell snuck ahead again on laps 92-93 after the final restart.  Sweet's No. 40VT Malone Properties/Gary Clay Builders Chevrolet was too much and he grabbed the lead for the final time on lap 94, driving away from Helliwell for the win.

Dillon Moltz of Waterford, Conn., first fought past Rich Dubeau, then drove hard through lapped traffic to claim third place behind Helliwell.  Dubeau was an ACT career-best fourth, with Luke Hinkley fifth; Hinkley's run came one year to the date of being diagnosed with leukemia, which is now in remission.  Brad Babb, Todd Davis, Bobby Therrien, Josh Masterson, and Brent Dragon completed the top 10.

The race was part the "Tribute Series" during Devil's Bowl Speedway's 50th season and was dedicated to the late John Bruno of Castleton, Vt.  Mr. Bruno was a multi-time champion driver and car owner at Devil's Bowl and other speedways, and father of current Devil's Bowl promoter Mike Bruno. 

Morrisonville, N.Y., driver Travis Bruno – unrelated to the John Bruno family – scored his first career Devil's Bowl Speedway victory in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action, winning the 30-lap Bond Auto Parts Sportsman Modified feature.  Bruno's No. 91 Egglefield Ford entry led every step of the way in the non-stop race, with Vince Quenneville Jr. of Brandon, Vt., at his rear bumper virtually the entire distance.

Quenneville tried driving his car in multiple grooves to get by Bruno but was unsuccessful.  Championship point leader Jason Durgan, also of Morrisonville, N.Y., rallied in the final laps to make it a three-car fight for the win.  Quenneville held on for the runner-up spot with Durgan third, Billy Lussier fourth, and Ron Proctor fifth.

Jim McKiernan of Moriah Center, N.Y., won the 20-lap feature for the Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegade division, taking his second-straight win.  Matt Monaghan threatened to take the lead from McKiernan on several occasions, but a late restart allowed Scott FitzGerald to sneak in for the runner-up position.  Monaghan settled for third ahead of Ray Germain Jr. and rookie Austin McKiernan, the winner's son.

Harold LaVair Jr. scored a popular victory in the Portland Glass Mini Stock division's 15-lap feature race.  The 30-year racing veteran and sentimental favorite from Saranac Lake, N.Y., led every lap to mark his first Devil's Bowl win since 2012.  Rookie teammates Eric Messier and Zach Wood finished second and third, respectively, followed by Brad Bertrand and Chris LaVair, son of the race winner.

A dreary weather forecast has forced the cancellation of the event scheduled for the Dirt Track at Devil's Bowl Speedway on Sunday, June 5.  The Dirt Track will instead be in action on Sunday, June 12 at 6:00 p.m. with Twin 25-lap features for the Sportsman Modifieds in addition to Renegades and Mini Stocks.  Regular general admission is $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students, and free for kids age 12 and under.  The Asphalt Track's next event is on Saturday, June 18.

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.  For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.  Devil's Bowl Speedway is on Facebook at facebook.com/DevilsBowlSpeedway and on Twitter and Instagram at @DevilsBowlSpeed; follow the action using the #DevilsBowl hashtag.

Sweet Wins Duel with Helliwell at Devil’s Bowl

Sweet Wins Duel with Helliwell at Devil's Bowl


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                         ACT060416-45


West Haven, VT – Nick Sweet came out on top of a race-long duel with defending American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. to take the People's United Bank 100 at West Haven, VT's Devil's Bowl Speedway on Saturday, June 4, becoming the first repeat winner of the 2016 season.


The Barre, VT driver had surrendered the lead to Helliwell on the race's final restart on lap 92 following Ryan Olsen's spin. But Sweet dove back inside Helliwell two laps later to regain the top spot for the final time. Helliwell then came under attack from Dillon Moltz, allowing Sweet to pull away in the closing laps for his sixth career ACT Late Model Tour win.


Sweet grabbed the lead on the start from polesitter Bobby Therrien and led the 29 laps. Helliwell, a three-time ACT winner at Devil's Bowl, then swung to his outside to assume command. Although Sweet continued to dog Helliwell through lapped traffic, he was unable to regain command as the race threatened to go caution-free.


But a trio of yellow flags, beginning with rookie Mark Jenison sailing off the backstretch on lap 79 and ending with fellow rookie Devin O'Connell doing the same on lap 85, allowed Sweet to pull even with Helliwell. Sweet slid up the track in turn one on the lap-85 restart, but recovered quickly and worked his way underneath Helliwell to retake the point with 10 laps to go. Olsen went around in turn one two laps later, setting up the final dash to the checkered flag.


Helliwell held off Moltz for second, while Rich Dubeau earned a career-best fourth-place finish. Luke Hinkley completed the top-five. Brad Babb, Todd Davis, Therrien, Josh Masterson, and Brent Dragon rounded out the top-10. Sweet unofficially retakes the ACT point lead after Eddie MacDonald struggled all night in a back-up car.


The ACT Late Model Tour heads to Groveton, NH's Speedway 51 on Saturday, June 18 for the Generation Next 151. Post time is 5:30pm.

Dylan Swiernik #7c parti 6ème entre au top 5 au tour 13En entrevue d'avant-course, Yan Bilodeau #123 a confié qu'après avoir fini 7ème en 2014 et 8ème en 2015 à Granby, il souhaitait un top 5, ce qu'il a réalisé ce soir.
