Devil’s Bowl Speedway Suffers First Rainout of 2020
Tickets, wristbands honored August 29 or September 12
WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil’s Bowl Speedway suffered its first weather-related postponement of the 2020 season on Sunday, August 23. Brief but torrential rains moved over the speedway around 5:00 p.m., and totally saturated the facility. Though the sun returned, the track surface was not in a raceable condition, forcing officials to pull the plug.
There were 35 Pepsi Sportsman Modifieds in the pit area for the Charlie LaDuc Memorial 54-lap special, which will have a makeup date to be announced soon.
Online pre-sale tickets, tickets purchased at the speedway, and pit pass wristbands will be honored on either Saturday, August 29 or Saturday, September 12. Spectators and competitors are asked to keep ticket stubs and wristbands for entrance at one of those events.
The next event is the “Prelude to the 200” event on Saturday, August 29, which will be packed with action as the wild-and-crazy Enduro Series returns for a 50-lap race, and the Sportsman Modified feature will offer a “Win and You’re In!” guaranteed Vermont 200 starting position to the winner. The Sportsman Modified “B-Feature” for non-qualifiers will pay a special $250 bonus to the winner.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman, Mini Stock, and 500cc Mini Sprint classes will also be on the program on August 29, with the Limiteds running 25 laps for $400 to win. The Pro Stock and Super Stock classes are off for the evening.
The Interstate All Battery Center Vermont 200 will be on Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6, with racing at 5:00 p.m. on both nights.
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.
