WEST HAVEN — Second-place finishes by Brandon’s Joey Scarborough and Matt Bilodeau and Orwell’s Garrett Given highlighted local drivers’ efforts at Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday, a night that saw four first-time winners at the dirt track.
One first-time winner was New York driver Jack Speshock in the main event, the 30-lap Sportsman Modified feature. Speshock races full-time at Albany-Saratoga and Plattsburgh Airborne speedways, while also racing part-time at Devil’s Bowl. On Sunday he led every lap that he ran.
Scarborough broke out of traffic late but was unable to track Speshock down and...

WEST HAVEN — Middlebury driver Justin Comes on Sunday reversed a recent run of bad luck at Devil’s Bowl Speedway by winning the evening’s main event, the 30-lap Sportsman Modified feature. A number of other local drivers also posted top-five efforts.
Comes was a championship contender before things fell apart in mid-July. In a string of three races to end the month, he crashed twice and blew an engine as he fell to ninth place in the series standings.
With a new (used) power plant on Sunday, Comes lived up to his “High Side Hustler” nickname and ran the top groove all night long. Benson’s...
WEST HAVEN — Anthony Warren of Shoreham came back to the Devil’s Bowl Speedway here on Sunday and won a race for the second week in a row, and two other Addison County drivers also notched victories during the evening’s racing.
Warren found himself in the right place in the rough-and-tumble O’Reilly Auto Parts Limited Sportsman feature, and ended up in Victory Lane for the second week in a row. Anthony Ryan of Benson was leading and headed for his first win when contact from second-place driver Matt Bilodeau sent both cars head-on into the wall at lap 14. Warren inherited the lead just as the...

WEST HAVEN — At Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday, Shoreham’s Anthony Warren became the Limited Sportsman Division’s sixth first-time winner of 2019 in a race dominated by Addison County drivers.
Using the outside lane with the hard-charging style that has become his signature, Warren’s power move around leader Adam Piper of Leicester came with two laps left in the scheduled 20-lap distance. A last-minute caution re-racked the field for the finish, but Warren drove off into the sunset.
In an evening sponsored by the Community College of Vermont in which double points were awarded for each...

WEST HAVEN – The full moon hovering over Devil’s Bowl Speedway seemed to influence just about every lap of the dirt track action on Sunday, when Frank Hoard III and Floyd Billington ended long victory droughts and four drivers found themselves upside down.
No local racers won, but Orwell’s Tim LaDuc took second to lead a strong county showing in the main event, and Middlebury’s Jake Barrows also posted a second-place effort.
Manchester Center’s Hoard prevailed in the 30-lap Sportsman Modified feature after several top-five finishes in recent weeks. Hoard came from 21st starting position to...
