Waterford, CT — Debuting earlier this season as part of the Speedbowl’s popular Wild N’ Wacky Wednesday midweek series, the Outlaw Stock division has been well-received by both fans and competitors.
Slated for a 20-lap feature, they’ll again appear at this weekend’s season-ending, two-day, 13-division division Town Fair Tire Finale.
The brainchild of Speedbowl Tech Inspector Don Rand, the class has lived-up to its expectations as a “Run What You Brung” affair, attracting competitors from a myriad of different divisions. While Scott Foster, the winner of the initial event was piloting a “conventional” Monte Carlo Late Model-type entry, second-place finisher Glenn Boss was behind the controls of an open-wheel “Thompson Modified”. Third on the podium was Alan Coates, wheeling an All-Star Race Truck. Also in the field were several Sportsman-class entries, as well as racers from Seekonk Speedway in Massachusetts.
“So-far, the division has proven to be pretty popular with the competitors.” said Rand recently. “The rules were designed to attract teams that for whatever reason were not competing presently, or those from other speedways that wanted to try the Speedbowl without making major changes to their equipment. It offers an equal playing-field, while still maintaining an “open” racing experience. It makes for a really diverse starting-field, and the fans seem to enjoy the variety.”
Finale action begins with a 2 PM till dark practice session for all competing divisions on Friday (Oct. 3). All qualifying will be on Saturday (Oct. 4) followed by the Legends, Pro4, NEMA Lites and Wild n’ Wacky divisions, Thompson Modified and Outlaw Stock features.
The 25-lap NEMA feature will join the SKs, Late Models, Sportsman and Mini Stocks on Sunday (Oct. 5) The traditional pit party at 10:30 am kicks off the Sunday program.
