When we last we checked in with New London-Waterford Speedbowl SK Modified driver Tim Jordan he was still busy picking up the pieces after a crash that ultimately earned him nationwide attention.

The 2021 season came to a bruising conclusion for Jordan in October at the Speedbowl when he ended as part of a horrifying crash into the turn three fence at the shoreline oval. Video of the nasty wreck ended up going viral, even being picked up by TMZ.

“I’m still waiting on my royalty checks to come in from that,” Jordan joked during the latest edition of the Unmuffled podcast.

Jordan, the 2020 SK Modified champion at the Speedbowl, will return to the track in 2022 to hunt wins, though he’s not quite sure when that mission will start. The Speedbowl has yet to release a 2022 schedule.

“The plan is to go back there whenever that mysterious first race will be,” Jordan said.

The longtime Speedbowl veteran said he has grown used to dealing with mystery each season when it comes to Speedbowl operations.

“It is what it is,” Jordan said. “You can’t even get mad about it. It’s definitely a choice. The pros outweigh the cons to me to race there. At the end of the day there’s still really good people there and certain people are really passionate about the place. It is what it is kind of thing.

“I always kind of compare it to like a family member. You know that one family member that people say ‘Ah, what’s going on with them?’ And you’re just like ‘They’re doing alright, I don’t really know what they’re doing.’ You don’t want people to bash your family member, but you understand what they’re saying. It’s kind of like having that uncle. … But it would be nice to know what’s going on. I’m assuming we’re going to open the first weekend in May and probably end the second weekend of October with a couple weeks off in between. That would be my unofficial Speedbowl schedule for everybody out there listening.”

  1. It is strange that there has not been any announcement yet… I wonder if someone is planning on leasing or buying the place?
