(Press Release from New England Street Outlaw Series)

New England Street Outlaws LogoThe newly formed New England Street Outlaw Series (NESOS) is poised for an exciting inaugural 2015 event featuring the spectator drag racing event at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park starting this Saturday, July 18th. This event marks the first time in 30-years that legal drag racing will take place in the state of Connecticut going longer than 100’.

The NESOS will be making their debut at the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Saturday, July 18th with a rain date of Saturday, July 25th.

“We are looking forward to having the New England Street Outlaw Series as part of our 2015 schedule. It diversifies our offerings a bit, and gives folks another avenue to enjoy our facility,” stated General Manager Josh Vanada. Complete detailed schedule information along with times, track layout and parking maps for these events are available on The track distance for the July event will be 250’ making it the longest legal drag racing timing zone in 30-years in the state since Connecticut Dragway closed its doors forever in 1985.

The NESOS was formed with the basis of allowing competitors to race their street vehicles, drag purpose vehicles or bikes and quads in a safe and controlled environment. Some racers use the NESOS events as a way to have some fun with their friends to hold bragging rights in an exciting ‘Run What You Brung’ style atmosphere.

Other competitors use the NESOS events as a way to practice their reaction time with their vehicles before heading to larger ¼ mile tracks. The dial-in system used as part of the full electronic scoring system helps to ensure drivers stay true to what their cars and themselves are capable of and allows for different style and performance vehicles to race on an equal playing field. In order to accommodate all forms of racers and vehicles the NESOS will run under a lightweight rule package to ensure equal competition and allow almost all vehicles and modifications to be eligible.

The NESOS team got its start working together in 2014 when Promoter and Series Owner Mark Caise oversaw the (New London) Waterford Speedbowl Sho & Go Program, a spectator drag racing and car cruise show rolled into one event.

“We are really excited to get our season underway and welcome back our 2014 competitors and new competitors from across New England that have showed a lot of interest in what we are doing” stated Caise. David Gagnon was named the Race Director and will continue in the same role with the NESOS. James Brown was named Chief Steward as head of the track crew and will continue the same role with the NESOS.
