Complete 2017 New London-Waterford Speedbowl Schedule


  1. Any word on Season Passes??????

  2. Is the June 24 VMRS event shown in the Speedbowl schedule for real?

  3. Rafter, I hope so!

  4. Got the schedule however can’t find the car registration or driver reg. any idea? thanks

  5. Got the schedules however can’t find the driver car registration or number reg. forms any ideas?

  6. I see that the VMRS web site now acknowledges the Speedbowl event as part of its (now) 12 race schedule for 2017. Initially, a 10 race schedule (without the Bowl or NHMS) was announced.

  7. Check their Facebook page… they had it all there

  8. Number reg. form is on speedbowl website

  9. I like the switch back to Wednesdays, smart move. I wish they were able to bring back the ACT late models, always a great show. It seems Speedbowl and Stafford aren’t able to bring in this division and I don’t understand why? I would love to see them race at Stafford for sure. Other than that looks like a great year as long as the place is run correctly.

  10. has their been a new g.m. person named yet?

  11. Mike, Stafford won’t have the ACT series because it would put their Late Model division to shame.

  12. What? You base this educated opinion on what?More money in cars doesn’t always equal faster. Some might say that years of driving the same track might be more important. You really think that’s the reason or could it be they know the money they need to bring the ACT cars here doesn’t equal butts in the seats.

  13. DougDaCheater says

    Stafford late models could be the stupidest racing division in the country. They are nothing more than super street late model wanna be cars that can only pass each other by running into the side of one another. Its not 1995 anymore G-body Frames are now 30+ years old. Making a Tubular chassis using a 30 year old design is even stupider. Lets get real 90% of late models in New England are ACT cars with sealed crate motors that can last 2 seasons and cost 5500 dollars. why would anyone bother with a “Vintage” late model division.

  14. just wondering says

    Why does an article about the Speedbowl’s 2017 schedule have to be turned into a bash Stafford and their Late Model division. I’m guessing the reason Stafford does not have an ACT date is the same as a lot of tracks, maybe it just doesn’t make sense to bring high price full-fendered touring divisions if they don’t draw fans as well as the open wheel modifieds four touring series.

  15. Syrautil18 says

    Stafford late models racing is some of the toughest racing out there. There car counts aren’t as bad as some tracks and the price for a winning stafford late model is about half of an act car. The spec engine with the best parts can be built for well under 8000. I’ve raced everything from a dirt street stock to a superlate and I have mad respect for the stafford late models. That’s why you see some modified drivers wanting to drive. It’s physical and fun. Late model car counts are down all over. I think you will see a good field with a lot of competition there in 2017.

  16. Shawn. Any truth to the rumor of Woody Pitkat driving a Late Model at Thompson this season
