Rookie Payea Dominates Devil’s Bowl Speedway for First Win
Forrest takes Mini Stock special; Germain gets first Super Stock victory

WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Dylan Payea may be a rookie Late Model stock car driver, but he certainly did not drive like one on Saturday, August 12, as he dominated for the first win of his career at The Asphalt Track at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. Payea trounced the field on Heritage Family Credit Union “Member Night” to highlight an event that also saw R.J. Germain and Roo Forrest score meaningful victories.

Payea, of Henniker, N.H., led the 50-lap Driven Transport Late Model Series race from the drop of the green flag and stretched out to a nearly quarter-track advantage before the race’s lone yellow flag flew for debris with 37 laps complete. Robert Bryant Jr. mounted a serious challenge on the outside lane at the restart, and even crept ahead to lead lap 39, but Payea fended him off and sped away to collect the win. (more…)

Asphalt era closing with Late Model 100 on September 2; ACT event cancelled

WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil’s Bowl Speedway is going back to its roots: Full-time dirt track racing will return in 2018. After eight years with an asphalt half-mile, with the last four years running with both asphalt and dirt layouts, the Rutland County facility will have an all-new half-mile dirt surface for its 52nd season.

The changeover marks the third period in the speedway’s history that dirt racing will be held on a half-mile surface; the track was similar in its first four seasons from 1967 to 1970 and again from 1975 through 2009. Asphalt racing has been held on the half-mile oval twice, from 1971 through 1974, and most recently from 2010 to the present. A 3/10-mile dirt track was built in the infield of the half-mile in 2014 and has operated simultaneously with the asphalt track since then. (more…)
