Spring Green Season Opener Postponed to May 20 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

Spring Green Season Opener Postponed to May 20 at Devil's Bowl Speedway

"Rutland County Rumble" pulling and demo derby event becomes new opener


For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                                 DBS-050517-1


WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil's Bowl Speedway has postponed its season-opening "Spring Green" stock car racing event due to heavily saturated grounds and a forecast calling for more wet weather.  The event was to be held on Sunday, May 7, with the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and the weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series on the card.  A practice session and inspection day scheduled for Saturday, May 6, has been cancelled.

The Spring Green has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 20, with a post time of 6:00 p.m., on the 1/2-mile Asphalt Track at Devil's Bowl.

Consistent rains in recent days and weeks have left the speedway property drenched, with surrounding ditches and drainage full and unable to divert any more water.  Rain showers during the day on Friday – with more predicted during the weekend – forced the postponement.

"We don't want fans and race teams to travel three or more hours and have a bad experience," Devil's Bowl promoter Mike Bruno said.  "Even if there is no rain on Sunday, our hands are tied with the wet grounds.  It's like a big sponge already, and the mud would make things miserable for everyone.  We appreciate Tom Curley and ACT working with us to reschedule the Spring Green to Saturday, May 20."

The rescheduled Spring Green on Saturday, May 20, will feature a 117-lap main event for the ACT Late Models, along with the season opening races for Devil's Bowl Speedway's NASCAR O'Reilly Auto Parts Sportsman Modified, Rosen & Berger Super Stock, and Portland Glass Mini Stock divisions.  The green flag waves at 6:00 p.m.

Devil's Bowl Speedway now turns its attention to the new season opener on Saturday, May 13, and the first-ever "Rutland County Rumble" sponsored by Down And Dirty.  Four classes of Truck & Tractor Pulls begin at12:00 noon, followed by a Demolition Derby for 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder cars at approximately 6:00 p.m.  General admission for the Rutland County Rumble is just $12.00 for adults, $5.00 for teens age 13-17, and free for kids age 12 and under; pit passes are also just $12.00 per person, age 10 and up.

Devil's Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, Vt., four miles north of U.S. Route 4, Exit 2.  For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.  Devil's Bowl Speedway is on Facebook at @DevilsBowlSpeedway and on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat at @DevilsBowlSpeed; follow the action using the hashtag #DevilsBowl.

MR. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship Returns for 2017 Season


MR. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship Returns for 2017 Season

Posted: 04 May 2017 04:00 PM PDT

Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Returns for Seventh Consecutive Year

Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Champion from Big-Block Modifieds, 358 Modifieds, Sportsman Modified and Pro Stocks will be crowned

For the seventh consecutive season, one driver from each of the Big-Block Modified, 358 Modified, Sportsman Modified and Pro Stock divisions will walk away as Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Champion in 2017.

In 1976 the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship program was born. The Super DIRTcar Series program was used as a qualifier series for Super DIRT Week at Syracuse. In 1989, the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship program made a shift, adding a fall series to hometrack bonus points to determine the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack title. From 2000 through 2010, the champion from the Super DIRTcar Series was also named Mr. DIRTcar.

At the start of the 2011 season the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship was separated from Super DIRTcar Series points standings in order to recognize a separate champion. Rather than being tied directly to a touring series, the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship allowed DIRTcar Racing drivers who competed at DIRTcar-sanctioned tracks to earn points towards the Mr. DIRTcar title, rewarding the champion of each of the four divisions.

Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship now recognizes local heroes who run at weekly DIRTcar-sanctioned track in the Northeast. The champion in each of the four divisions takes home between $1,000 to $6,000, depending on that division.

How It Works
A driver's best 16 finishes are recorded throughout the season, from January 1 through Labor Day Monday (September 4 this year). Drivers receive 60 points for a win, 56 points for second, and so on decreasing by two points through the field. Once a driver reaches 16 races, his worst finishes are thrown out, leaving only the best results to count towards the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship title.

Since the Big-Block Modified division of the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship was separated from Super DIRTcar Series points standings, there have been two winners – Brett Hearn and Matt Sheppard. Since 2011, only one time has the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Champion been different from the Super DIRTcar Series champion. That came in 2014 when Billy Decker took home the Super DIRTcar Series Championship while Sheppard earned the Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack title.

In 2016, Sheppard scored a perfect score in the Big-Block Modified division, tallying 16 wins. In the 358 Modified division, David Hebert narrowly edged out Erick Rudolph by two points to take home the 2016 358 Modified Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack title. Brad Rouse clipped Martin Pelletier by four points in the Sportsman Modified division, while Stephane Lemire topped Jocelyn Roy in DIRTcar Pro Stock action.

Stay up to date on Mr. DIRTcar Hometrack Championship standings and news through weekly news releases and social media highlighting the weekly Big-Block Modified, Sportsman Modified, 358 Modified and Pro Stock events, local tracks and stand out performances.
