Wet grounds force rescheduling to November 1
Devil's Bowl Speedway is again postponing its final dirt track stock car race of the season.
The Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC "Vermont Freedom & Unity" event has now been moved three times from its original date due to weather-related conditions; one final attempt will be made at running the race on Saturday, November 1 at 1:00 p.m.
With steady rain in eight of the last nine days at the facility, the clay surface of the dirt track has become too saturated for crews to be able to prepare a quality racing surface in enough time for competition on Sunday afternoon.
"We want to give our racers and fans the best quality show that we can, and any attempt at running a race on Sunday would just result in a rutted, muddy track," promoter Mike Bruno said. "The good news is that the weather forecast looks great for next week, and we're optimistic that we'll be able to finish the season on a high note."
The Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC "Vermont Freedom & Unity" event is the third and final leg of the "Battle at the Bowl" dirt track series and features a 100-lap, $2,000-to-win Sportsman Modified race that crowns champions for both the Battle at the Bowl and the Northern Modified Challenge Series. Champions will also be crowned in the Renegade and Mini Stock divisions, and the Bond Auto Parts Sprint Cars of New England tour will also wrap up its point chase with a $1,000-to-win race. A special $1,000-to-win event for the Bear Ridge Speedway Sportsman Coupe division is also on the card.
Grandstand general admission on Saturday, November 1 is $20 for adults and free for kids 12 and under, with pit passes at $40. Pit gates will open at 9:00 a.m., with the grandstands open at 11:00 a.m. Hot laps will begin at 12:00 noon, followed by Sportsman time trials at 12:30 p.m. Green flag racing action starts at 1:00 p.m.
