WEST HAVEN, VT – Devil’s Bowl Speedway has upgraded two of its affiliations to “Official Partner” status for 2019, and the Vermont dirt track’s 53rd season of racing will have a hue of “Hoosier purple” as a result. Hoosier Racing Tire and Elmo’s Speed & Supply have been officially welcomed to the track’s family of sponsors and marketing partners, with each strengthening its commitment to supporting race teams at Devil’s Bowl.
Based in Manchester, Connecticut, Hoosier Tires East, Inc. is the regional Hoosier distributor for the Northeast and has been a Devil’s Bowl affiliate for more than a decade, albeit at a handshake-agreement level. Elmo’s Speed & Supply of Burnt Hills, New York, began providing race-day support to Devil’s Bowl in 2018 as a local Hoosier Tires East satellite dealer and racing parts vendor.
Under the terms of their new agreements for 2019, Hoosier Racing Tire is the “Official Tire of Devil’s Bowl Speedway” and Elmo’s Speed & Supply is the “Official Parts Supplier of Devil’s Bowl Speedway.” Hoosier remains the exclusive tire used in the Sportsman Modified, Limited Sportsman, and 500cc Mini Sprint divisions at Devil’s Bowl, and all cars in those divisions and the Super Stock and Mini Stock classes will carry Hoosier and Elmo’s decals as part of the contingency sponsorship package in 2019.
Both organizations will contribute to the track’s season-long point fund, and champions will receive the coveted purple Hoosier jackets at the annual Banquet of Champions.
“I’m grateful for the support from Rob Summers of Hoosier and from the Reckner family at Elmo’s,” Devil’s Bowl promoter Mike Bruno said. “Hoosier tires are on every car in three of our divisions, and I’ll bet that just about every racer visited the Elmo’s trailer at one time or another last year for parts or advice. Everyone will benefit from this deal – the teams, the track, and the sponsors – and it means a lot to have them on board.”
Devil’s Bowl Speedway opens on Sunday night, May 19, with a full card of the five weekly divisions and the popular Street-Legal Spectator Races. Competitor registration forms and membership licenses are available at a discounted rate now through March 31, and season passes for both general admission grandstand seating and the pit area are also on sale.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, Vt., four miles north of U.S. Route 4, Exit 2, and just 20 minutes from Rutland, Vt.
