Devil’s Bowl Speedway To Race On Sunday In 2018

Devil’s Bowl Speedway (West Haven, VT) officials have announced a return to Sunday night racing in 2018 as the historic Vermont stock car racing facility undergoes the process of having its half-mile track converted from asphalt surface to natural clay.

“Devil’s Bowl has traditionally been a Sunday-night track, but lifestyles and priorities have changed so much that we really wanted to dig deep and see if Sunday was still manageable,” Devil’s Bowl Speedway promoter Mike Bruno said. “There was support for Saturday, but ultimately Sunday will be the best fit for the majority. However, we feel a responsibility to get everyone home at a decent hour in time for the Monday work day, and we will make a big effort to get our shows done in three hours or less.”

The decision to race on Sundays was reached after gathering information from more than 120 race teams and analyzing more than 1,500 responses from an online public survey of fans.

Among the time-saving plans are rotating schedules throughout the season, the elimination of heat races in exchange for extra-distance feature events, and a rotation of occasional off-weeks for select classes. In addition, a new format for victory lane ceremonies is expected to save up to 20 minutes each show.

The full season schedule and rule books will be announced at a later date.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway, located on Route 22A in West Haven, marks its eighth consecutive year hosting weekly racing under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series banner.
