WEST HAVEN, VT — It’s not summer yet, but they’re already showing reruns at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. Dave Camara dominated the 30-lap modified feature, and Carl Vladyka polished off the field in the pro-street stock feature as the Champlain Valley Racing Association track kicked off its 37th season of racing Sunday night. Last year, Camara andVladyka were also the opening night winners.
Camara’s win allowed him to complete a weekend sweep, as he also won Friday night’s feature at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. Although Camara dominated the event after he took the lead from Don Mattison on lap six, there was still plenty of excitement on the well-groomed track, which was smooth and fast all night. Vince Quenneville Jr., who lost the point championship to Camara on the final night of the 2002 season, and Don Scarborough, back at the Bowl after sporadic appearances in the last two years, were using every inch of the track to make their way to the front.
With Camara steadily pulling away, Ron Proctor and Quenneville engaged in a good battle for the No. 2 position, with Proctor finally prevailing. Scarborough came across the finish line fourth, with Tim Laduc fifth in his first run behind the wheel of the Sput Shaw 57. Camara, Ray Hoard and Jim Ryan were the heat race winners.
