The Latest on the Speedbowl Reorganization

Waterford, CT –The Speedbowl Board of Directors and track owner, Terry Eames, wish to assure interested parties that we are moving forward despite the abrupt departure of one of our team.

In the coming days we will release new contact information and start providing other details here while the new Speedbowl.com is rushed to completion.

Our interim website has been commandered by the departing party. That is unfortunate because it contained rules and other information of value. We are working to get that info up on this site as soon as possible.

Shawn Monahan Leaves Waterford Speedbowl Board of Directors

I would like to publicly announce my withdrawal from the Waterford Speedbowl lease. I appreciate everyone’s support and enthusiasm for my involvement. It is with great regret that I was unable to come to a mutually beneficial agreement with Mr. Eames. As many of you know, I have worked hard, and invested much energy and financial resources to see this deal come to fruition.  However, despite good faith efforts on both parts, we were unable to reach an agreement and have, at this time, dissolved our potential partnership.

During the time in which I was working with Mr. Eames in anticipation of the partnership, I collected money on behalf of the Waterford Speedbowl.  I want to assure all of those who have purchased their number registrations and/or season passes that the money has been turned over to Terry Eames as owner of the Waterford Speedbowl.

I understand many of you made those payments because you were hoping I would be involved and running the Speedbowl; and I can assure you I’m as disappointed as you are.  However, the money had to be turned over legally as criminal charges could have resulted in my holding checks made out to Waterford Speedbowl without having any authority to cash them.

I would again like to thank you all for your support.

Kobyluck The First To Make It Two

Earns Second Toyota All-Star Showdown title

Irwindale, CA — Matt Kobyluck is no stranger to wild finishes at the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown. Saturday night at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale, he once again got the best of a three-car, last-lap free-for-all to end up in Victory Lane.

In the process, the Uncasville, Conn., driver became the first to win two NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdowns.

Joey Logano slid up into Peyton Sellers while going for the lead in Turn 4 coming to the checkered flag. Kobyluck, who was running third, came across the start-finish line a nose behind Logano. Logano was penalized for his move, though, giving Kobyluck a second NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown to go with the one he won in 2006.
