SODUS, N.Y. – The future stars of sprint car racing in the Northeast are making headlines as they approach a season where dirt racing in the region gets back on track.
It was revealed recently that the CRSA Sprints will be heading to the far East this season as they travel for a July 3 event at Mike Bruno’s Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Vermont.
This will be a challenge event with the Sprint Cars of New England – a 360 sprint car organization that will visit Devil’s Bowl three times this season.
CRSA and SCoNE management teams are finalizing the rules and format for the unique event and will announce both in the very near future.
The event will tout an $8,000 purse, plus planned bonuses on the line for drivers making the tow. It also falls on the weekend celebrating Independence Day, which might be considered two-fold as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic slowly begins to subside.
“We are very excited about this collaboration with SCoNE and the CRSA Sprints for many reasons,” noted CRSA Series Director Mike Emhof. “Mike and Justin have put up a great purse for our drivers to compete alongside the SCoNE competitors and put on a show for the Devil’s Bowl faithful.
“It’s a win for CRSA, it’s a win for SCoNE and it will be a big win for the fans.”
The Independence Day Sprint Car Spectacular will also feature fan entertainment, as Devil’s Bowl Speedway plans a massive fireworks display to light up the New England skies.
The Super Gen Products CRSA Sprints tour schedule feature 16 races, while also being flanked by weekly Saturday night CRSA-sanctioned racing at Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway.
Land of Legends recently announced a purse increase for the 305 sprint cars – now paying $500 to win, $300 for second, $220 for third and $125 just to take the green flag.
