Devil’s Bowl Speedway opens racing season

WEST HAVEN—Devil’s Bowl Speedway has unveiled its 2017 season schedule, boasting the Northeast’s most diverse slate of motorsports events. Located on Route 22A in scenic West Haven, the facility will continue to offer affordable, family-friendly entertainment and the region’s most exciting NASCAR-sanctioned stock car racing on two tracks. Racing at the half-mile asphalt track at Devil’s Bowl will continue to be primarily Saturday nights at 7 p.m. during the summer months, while the 3/10-mile dirt track remains a Sunday night show at 6 p.m. sportsman modifieds, super stocks, and mini stocks will be the mainstays in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing program at both tracks. A total of 15 events make up the asphalt track schedule with 16 total events for the dirt track.

The calendar opens with a blockbuster on Sunday, May 7, as the historic “Spring Green” makes its return to the asphalt track with the stars and cars of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) late models joining the regular NASCAR divisions. The event’s unique lap distance will be 117 laps for 2017; the Spring Green was previously held at Devil’s Bowl in 2011-14. After a two-week break to prepare for the summer grind, weekly racing begins on Memorial Day weekend at the asphalt track on Saturday, May 27, and at the Dirt Track on Sunday, May 28.
