Sources: Announcement Expected Concerning Future Of New London-Waterford Speedbowl Tuesday

An announcement concerning the immediate future of the New London-Waterford Speedbowl is expected to be made Tuesday according to multiple sources close to Speedbowl management.

Mystery has abounded concerning the remainder of the 2018 schedule at the facility since Friday evening when it was announced that the track was cancelling its Saturday feature.

A status update on the Speedbowl Facebook page, which was posted just before 7:30 p.m. Friday read: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the September 15th races at Speedbowl have been cancelled. We will post updates on both Facebook and our website.”

The same message was also posted on the track website. Since then there have been no updates offered from track management concerning why the Saturday event was cancelled or if the remainder of the 2018 schedule will be run.

The Speedbowl is scheduled to have three more Saturday events (Sept. 22, Sept. 29 and Oct. 6) and their finale event Oct. 20-21.

Sources have indicated that Tuesday’s expected announcement would not come from George Whitney, who has been operating the track as a leaseholder since June 2017.

Attempts to reach Whitney since Friday have been unsuccessful. Attempts to reach track owner Bruce Bemer have also been unsuccessful.
