$1,500-to-win, Halloween-themed crash-fest on October 20
WEST HAVEN, VT – It’ll be Halloween at 100 miles per hour on Saturday, October 20, as the Vermonster 150 Enduro returns to Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, VT. The race is a survival-of-the-fittest test for man, woman, and machine, featuring strictly stock automobiles bashing and smashing their way around the half-mile oval for 150 laps. With Vermont’s unpredictable fall weather a possible factor, management has decided to hold the race whether there’s rain, sun, or even snow.
The Vermonster 150 will be the third Enduro race of the season at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, and Hinesburg’s Eric “Mongo” Messier will have the opportunity to win the trifecta. Messier piloted two different Ford Probes to win 75-lap races in June and August. More than 40 cars and drivers entered the last Enduro; should 50 or more enter the Vermonster, the first driver to complete the 150-lap distance will earn a cool $1,500 top prize.
In addition to the Enduro, the Vermonster event will also feature the always exciting Spectator Races that pit street-legal vehicles against each other in one-lap, single-elimination match-ups. Brothers Gary and Gerald of Addison, VT have provided a few thrills in the Spectator Races this year; Gary’s 2008 Ford Mustang defeated Gerald’s 2010 Toyota Tundra pick-up truck in June. Pat Cram of Whitehall, NY beat Tyler Davis of Mount Holly, VT with his 1982 Pontiac Grand Prix in August after Gerald Grant’s truck nearly hit the concrete retaining wall in a preliminary race.
