Stock car show marks unofficial opening for Rutland County racing season
RUTLAND, VT – The stock car racing season opens – at least unofficially – on March 28-29 at the Diamond Run Mall in Rutland, VT. Devil’s Bowl Speedway and some of its competitors will take part in the 14th annual Rutland Regional Racecar Show to bring the curtain up on the new year.
The Rutland Regional Racecar Show gives race fans an opportunity to see a variety of freshly prepared racecars and equipment up close, and to meet and speak with drivers from around the region. In addition to being one of the area’s leading shopping centers offering an array of national stores and brands, the Diamond Run Mall’s racing show is an annual fundraiser for the March of Dimes and March for Babies charities.
Several of the machines expected for the Rutland Regional Racecar Show are regular competitors at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, either in the weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series on the 1/2-mile asphalt oval, or in the Optical Expressions of Berlin Dirt Track Series on the new 3/10-mile clay oval. Cars expected at the show include open-wheel asphalt Modified racers driven by Jason Durgan, Cody Sargen, and rookie Bob Kilburn, and the dirt Modifieds of Johnny Scarborough and Chris Murray. Also expected are Kevin Loomis, the father-son team of Scott and Andrew FitzGerald, and others.
