Devil’s Bowl cancels July 8 Truck and Tractor Pulls; racing still on

July 8-9—WEST HAVEN—Devil’s Bowl Speedway has cancelled the Truck and Tractor Pulls event scheduled for Saturday, July 8. The decision was made from business and operational standpoints after analysis following the Rutland County Rumble event held June 10.

While there were quite a few positives, there were several unanticipated challenges and a series of delays on June 10 which extended the pulling portion of the event nearly two hours later than planned. The July 8 event was to be followed in the evening by a full program of NASCAR stock car and pro truck series racing — which is still on as planned — and the timing of the schedule is a major concern, although there are other matters that also factored into the cancellation of the pulls.

Weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series stock car racing and the Fast ‘N’ Dirty Weekend doubleheader for the Mr. Rooter pro truck series is still on the schedule as planned for July 8-9. Asphalt track racing will be on Saturday, July 8 starting at 6 p.m. due to a cancellation of July 1 fireworks, which have been rescheduled to July 8, along with the kids’ bicycle giveaway; and dirt track racing will go on as planned Sunday, July 9 at 6 p.m.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven,four miles north of  Route 4, Exit 2. For more information, visit devilsbowlspeedwayvt.com or call 802-265-3112.
