New motorsports events to highlight busy summer
WEST HAVEN, Vt. – The ground will shake in 2017 with a series of exciting, all-new motorsports events at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. The scenic Vermont facility has added a slate of new, high-adrenalin attractions for motorsports fans of all kinds, promising to bring a thrill to fans of all types of horsepower. While weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series-sanctioned stock car racing continues on the asphalt oval on Saturday nights and on the dirt oval on Sunday nights, the new events will offer a different style of heart-pounding action.
Trucks and tractors will have a thundering presence at Devil’s Bowl in 2017. The inaugural “Rutland County Rumble” will be held on Saturday, May 13, as the region’s top pulling tractors and trucks will be on hand for an intense display of power and torque. The popular Altered Farm Tractor class will headline the program, and also chasing the “full pull” will be three truck divisions: Super Stock 4×4, 2.6 Pro Diesel, and 2.5 Diesel.
The pulling event begins at 12:00 noon on May 13, followed that same evening by a wild-and-crazy Demolition Derby – the first at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in several years. The hard-hitting smashfest is open to any 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder car and will see action through heats, consolations, and a $1,000-to-win feature event.
