FAIR HAVEN, VT – Devil’s Bowl Speedway will host three open-forum meetings on Saturday, October 14 to discuss the 2018 stock car racing season. Drivers and team members from all divisions and all race tracks on both dirt and asphalt are welcome and encouraged to participate. The meetings will be held at American Legion Post #49 in Fair Haven, Vt., beginning at 1:00 p.m. sharp.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway is in the process of a full conversion to a dirt racing surface on its half-mile track for the 2018 season, and management is seeking input and opinions from all racers as the new era of racing approaches. The moderated gathering will begin with a general discussion involving all racers. Among the planned topics will be the schedule and event dates, race formats and purses, NASCAR membership and benefits, and other items.
All divisions will be discussed in the first hour of the meeting, though a special interest will be focused on the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series-sanctioned “Division I” Sportsman Modified class, a new novice-level Sportsman division, and the possibility of a series for Small Block 358-Modifieds.
Beginning at approximately 2:00 p.m., the focus will shift to the technical rulebook of the Super Stock division. Drivers and teams from the Super Stock class are highly encouraged to participate in the discussion as any and all potential rule changes for the 2018 season will be presented.
A similar rulebook discussion for four-cylinder cars will be held from approximately 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Discussions will take place for both an advanced-level Mini Stock division and a restricted entry-level class in 2018 and beyond. The Ladies and Bandit Youth divisions will also be discussed during the four-cylinder portion of Saturday’s meeting.
“We always want to hear from our race teams,” Devil’s Bowl Speedway promoter Mike Bruno said. “The 2018 season is going to be a very big year for Devil’s Bowl and our supporters have an important voice that will help to shape the season. This is their chance to make those voices heard.”
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m. sharp and is expected to be completed by 5:00 p.m. The American Legion Post #49 is located at 72 South Main Street (Route 22A) in Fair Haven, Vermont.
