Drivers from Airborne, Claremont, Thunder Road, Devil’s Bowl Dirt eligible for extra cash

(From track press release)

WEST HAVEN – Devil’s Bowl Speedway has announced a series of bonus awards for its “Vermont 200 Weekend” asphalt and dirt stock car races on September 10-11.  On top of increased purses in all divisions, more than $3,000 in posted bonus money is up for grabs for drivers competing in four NASCAR Whelen All-American Series divisions, including “invader” awards, heat race bonuses, and other prizes.

The awards are sponsored by Central Vermont Motorcycles of Rutland, Vt., Portland Glass of Rutland, Vt., Sugar & Spice Restaurant of Mendon, Vt., White’s Heating of Northfield, Vt., Maplewood Ice of Whitehall, N.Y., and Northern Truck & Equipment of Fort Ann, N.Y.

More than 100 drivers from Airborne Park Speedway, Claremont Speedway, Thunder Road Speedbowl, and the Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl will be eligible for the “invader” bonuses.  Sunday’s 100-lap Late Model race will award $250 to the highest finishing driver from the Top 20 in final championship points at Thunder Road.  The Sportsman Modified division will run twin 50-lap races – one on each day – with the top finisher from the current Top 12 at Airborne receiving an extra $100 in each race.

The Renegade division’s 50-lap Sunday finale has $50 bonuses for the top drivers from the Top 15 in the Airborne Renegades, Claremont Limited Sportsmen, Devil’s Bowl Dirt Renegades, and Thunder Road Tiger Sportsmen.  Sunday’s 25-lap Mini Stock feature has $25 prizes for the top drivers from the Top 10 in the Airborne Mini-Modifieds, Claremont Wildcats, Devil’s Bowl Dirt Mini Stocks, and Thunder Road Street Stocks.  Racers in pursuit of the “invader” bonuses in each division are encouraged to review the official 2016 Devil’s Bowl Speedway rulebooks online at www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com prior to competing.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway has also posted bonuses in the Sportsman Modifieds ($150), Renegades ($50), and Mini Stocks ($50) for the driver in each division who posts the best combined average finish in Sunday afternoon’s Asphalt Track feature races and Sunday night’s Dirt Track features at the “Vince Quenneville Sr. Memorial” event presented by Interstate All Battery Center.

Qualifying heats and the Saturday “Shootout” races for non-winners offer $100 to each Sportsman Modified and Late Model winner, and $50 to each Renegade and Mini Stock winner.  Sunday’s Sportsman Modified finale – the inaugural “Leon Gonyo Memorial 50” – will pay tribute to the late driver’s iconic car number 4 with the leader of the fourth lap collecting a bonus to be announced on race day.

Should the Late Model entry list reach 20 cars, the winner’s purse will climb from $1,200 to $2,000, and the runner-up will see a bump from $700 to $1,000; all Late Model drivers will earn a minimum of $300 to take the green flag regardless of car count.
