The New England Street Outlaw Series (NESOS) is poised for an exciting 2017 season of spectator drag racing events paired with a car cruise for a unique one of a kind automotive enthusiast event. Weekly Friday night events will start May 12th at New London-Waterford Speedbowl under the newly branded name Fast Lane Fridays, Drag Racing & Car Cruise.

Fast Lane Fridays at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl offer the areas only car cruise paired with exciting spectator drag racing.
Along with a new name will come a new attitude on these weekly Friday events with special competitions each night. Fast Lane Fridays will play host to a new special events including Double Eliminations, Imports vs. Domestics, Pro Tree Shootouts, Street Fights and more. Fast Lane Fridays Promoter Mark Caise stated, “We are designing these events to give racers more track time and more competition than ever before with new exciting shootout style races.” In addition to the special weekly events racers will have the opportunity to compete in the Outlaw, Street and Bike divisions for a season long championship battle. Any racers with a safe vehicle are welcome to participate in the on-track action. The entire 2017 Fast Lane Fridays schedule can be found online at

Paired with the on-track drag racing action, fans and car enthusiasts can show off their rides in the weekly car cruise. “We are looking forward to rebuilding the car cruise segment of this event. We want Fast Lane Fridays to be a car lover’s night from racing to the midway to the parking lot. Our goal is to work with local car clubs that wish to host a night,” says Caise. The car cruise will be free for anyone who wishes to participate for an award and bragging rights. All of this racing action and car cruise exhibit will be FREE for fans as the New London-Waterford Speedbowl will once again be offering FREE Grandstand Admission to these events every Friday.

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. Others use the NESOS events as a way to practice their reaction time with their vehicles before heading to larger 1/8 & 1/4 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.

Fast Lane Fridays will run under a lightweight rule package to ensure equal competition and allow almost all vehicles and modifications to be eligible. There will be three classes for the 2017 season. The Outlaw Class (formerly Competition / Pro) features cars that are not necessarily completely street legal. Most cars are classic muscle with performance modifications and racing slicks and others are full blown drag cars featuring full roll cages and 600+ horsepower engines. The Street Class features cars that are completely street legal. They may not necessarily be completely showroom stock; but if they can pass emission testing and not have the police need to site them a ticket for excessive noise and/or ‘non-legal components’ they are welcome to race on most DOT approved tires. The Bike Class is where it gets really interesting. This is the broadest of all the classes whether they have two wheels or four, motorcycle or dirt bike, quad, lawn mower, or snowmobile, if you can race it this is the division for you. The Fast Lane Friday events will also have a point system and will award a champion in each class at year’s end.

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. David Gagnon has been named the Race Director for 2017, he served in this roll previously from 2012-2014. A Fast Lane Fridays competitor meeting will be held later this month at a date and location TBD.
