WEST HAVEN -- The Champlain Valley Racing Association has made official the 2010 Devil's Bowl Speedway schedule, featuring 16 championship events for its first season as an asphalt 1/2-mile since the late 1970s. The track will feature weekly competition from the traditional dirt-style Modifieds, along with new-look divisions including the Sportsman (formerly Budget Sportsman), Renegade (formerly Limited), and Bomber Warrior (formerly Mini Stock) classes, and the Duke Stock division. A new American-Canadian Tour-legal Tiger Sportsman division is slated to begin racing at Devil's Bowl in 2010, but will not race weekly; the Tiger Sportsman schedule will be confirmed at a later date.
The 44th annual season opener will be held on Sunday, May 23, with a special 100-lap race for the Late Models from Thunder Road Int'l Speedbowl in Barre. The new Modified Tri-Track Series, including drivers from CVRA sister track Albany-Saratoga Speedway in Malta, N.Y., and Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, N.Y., moves in on May 30, followed one week later by the first of four championship programs that will also include an Enduro.
Other special events include an Independence Day fireworks celebration on July 4, the annual Mid-Season Championships on July 25, and the CVRA.com 100 for the Tri-Track Series on Championship Night, Sept. 5. Two snowmobile "grass drags" are planned with dates to be announced, and the season will conclude with the first-ever Vermonster Enduro 150 on Oct. 10.
