Battle at Bowl, Fall Brawl Reschedule

Persistent rain showers that spread throughout much of the northeast forced the postponement of two season-ending events on Saturday, October 18 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway and Riverside Speedway.

Devil’s Bowl officials pulled the plug early in the morning for their AutoSaver Group Vermont Freedom & Unity 100 after rain showers moved in earlier than expected. The event was to have featured a $2,000-to-win, 100-lap Sportsman Modified event, a $1,000-to-win Sprint Cars of New England event, a $1,000-to-win, 30-lap Bear Ridge Speedway Sportsman Coupe event, as well as events for the Renegades and Mini Stocks.

Officials have announced that the event will be made up in its entirety in one week on Saturday, October 25.

Riverside Speedway officials attempted to get their Fall Brawl 200 in, but rain forced the postponement of that event, too, with no races completed. The event will reportedly be made up on Sunday, October 26, however, that has yet to be confirmed. The rescheduled event will feature a $5,000-to-win, 200-lap Late Model event, a 40-lap Limited Late Model/Tiger Sportsman/Outlaw feature, a 40-lap Dwarf Car feature, a 40-lap Street Stock feature, a 25-lap Pure Stock feature, and the debut of the New England Street Stock Tour.

The Fall Brawl 200 could be the final event in the 50-year history of Riverside Speedway as the track is scheduled to be part of a foreclosure auction on Saturday, November 1.

While rain has ended racing action in northern New England this weekend, Thompson Speedway is underway with their season finale Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing which will feature 14 divisions and over 340 cars.

On the racing card include season finales for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, International Supermodified Association, Valenti Modified Racing Series, Granite State Pro Stock Series, Northeast Midget Association, and Northeast Mini Stock Tour. Thompson will also crown their 2014 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series champions in their Sunoco Modified, Late Model, Limited Sportsman, and Mini Stock divisions.

Vermont Motorsports Magazine will have coverage of the Thompson World Series of Speedway racing on our Twitter account, @VMMUpdates, all weekend, as well as post-race coverage on
