The weekly 2012 racing season has come to a close here at Devil's
Bowl Speedway, and now there's some time to finally take a breath
and soak it all in. Racers, fans and friends we want to
extend our deepest and most sincere thanks and appreciation to each
and every one of you for your belief in and support of our new
undertaking at Devil's Bowl Speedway.
To be honest with you, we didn't really know what to expect
after our first "town meeting" last October, but the first real
indication was when 30 dedicated race teams and a couple dozen
die-hard fans showed up for practice on April 22 in a 25-degree
wind chill with a touch of snow - that's when we knew we really had
a special group behind us.
The racing was outstanding in all four of our weekly divisions
all year, and the personalities really shined on both sides of the
pit fence all year. There was a feeling of both competitiveness and
community every week, and you were all an integral part of it -
from the first heat race on opening day to the pancake eating
contest to the final checkered flag at the Vermont 200 last
We thank the officials from the NASCAR Home Tracks and Whelen
All-American Series programs, the more than 50 local companies that
committed sponsorship and support to Devil's Bowl Speedway and its
racers, and the amazing group of people working here behind the
scenes keeping things running smoothly and successfully.
Our racers are our backbone, and there would be no racing
without the drivers, teams, and families who pour their hearts and
souls into this sport. Thanks to you and every one of your
sponsors. Likewise, every time our fans cheer for a winner or boo
someone who makes a mistake, that's enough of a payoff for us to
keep going. Your passion for this sport and Devil's Bowl
Speedway is obvious, and it's why we're here. Thank you all.
Asphalt racing wasn't supposed to work at Devil's Bowl,
right? We are proud to be the ones who are helping to prove
that theory wrong. All it takes is a little work and a lot of
belief in what you're trying to accomplish. We believe in our
program, and thankfully, so do you. That means everything to
us. We're already working on the 2013 racing season, and we
can't wait to bring it to you.
Mike and Alayne Bruno
