Series begins Friday, Sept. 26; Sportsman, Renegade, Mini Stock classes to run for point fund
WEST HAVEN, VT – Vermont’s Devil’s Bowl Speedway can lay claim to the most diverse schedule of stock car racing events in the Northeast in 2014, as details for the first-ever “Battle at the Bowl” dirt series have been announced. The three-race run begins on Friday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m.
Originally planned to be a temporary clay surface laid on top of the existing half-mile asphalt oval, the dirt track will now be a permanent one-third-mile clay oval built in the infield. The first and second turns will have as much as 10 degrees of banking, while the third and fourth corners have between four and seven degrees of banking. Corners will be 50-60 feet wide, with straightaways at 60-80 feet wide.
The Battle at the Bowl opens on Friday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m. with the “Slate Valley Showdown.” The event will feature a $1,000-to-win, 50-lap race for Sportsman Modifieds; a $500-to-win, 25-lap event for Pro Stocks; an eight-cylinder Renegade division featuring cars similar to local asphalt and dirt Renegade, Street Stock, and Limited classes; and a four-cylinder Mini Stock race.
