Legion, Bear Ridge, Devil’s Bowl set to help kick off SCoNE season

EAST MONTPELIER – The Sprint Cars of New England will embark on a busy three-race weekend that will see the 360 winged sprint cars race at Legion Speedway, Bear Ridge Speedway, and Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

The three-race weekend will officially kick off their 2016 season after their opening event, previously scheduled for Friday, May 6 at Legion, was postponed due to rain after qualifying had been completed. The event was to be made up as part of a double-feature card on Friday, May 27, but series officials opted to delay that event due to their busy race weekend.

Joining the Sprint Cars of New England at Legion will be the Peanut’s Auto Sportsman Modifieds, Petro Mart of Enfield Super Streets, and Enfield Garage Outlaw Mini Stocks. The event will be the third point counting event for Legion’s three weekly racing divisions.

On Saturday, May 28, the Sprint Cars of New England will travel to Bear Ridge Speedway for their first appearance of the season at the quarter-mile clay oval. They will run their event in conjunction with Bear Ridge’s four weekly divisions – the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, Wells River Chevrolet DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes, Mike Rivers Automotive Limited Late Models, and Weglarz Property Service Four Cylinders.

The Sprint Cars of New England will then help kick off the season for the Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday, May 29. One week after their scheduled opener was canceled due to rain, Devil’s Bowl will open their dirt racing season with the first of seven visits for the Sprint Cars of New England, along with Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modifieds, Rosen & Berger Renegades, and Portland Glass Mini Stocks.

Legion Speedway will wave their green flag at 7:00pm on Friday night, while Bear Ridge and Devil’s Bowl will start their events at 6:00pm on their race nights, respectively.
