Devil’s Bowl racers to receive NASCAR Whelen All-American Series awards
CHARLOTTE, NC – Devil’s Bowl Speedway stock car drivers Ron Proctor and Vince Quenneville, Jr., will be among the honorees at a black-tie gala for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series on Friday, December 7. The ceremony, held in the Crown Ballroom at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC, will feature top short track racers from more than 50 tracks in the United States and Canada.
Proctor, of Charlton, NY, will collect hardware for his second straight Devil’s Bowl Speedway Track Championship and Vermont State Division I Championship under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Proctor earned the title racing in the Bond Auto Parts Modified division at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, VT, where he posted three victories and finished seventh or better in all 18 NWAAS events at the track in 2012. Proctor finished 68th in national NWAAS Division I standings, with his total point fund winnings expected to top $5,000.
Brandon, VT driver Quenneville will be honored as the Vermont State Rookie of the Year for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Although he is a veteran of 25 years behind the wheel, Quenneville qualified for the NWAAS rookie program due to his status as a first-time NASCAR Division I license holder. With five victories, Quenneville finished second in overall track and state standings to Proctor, and ranked a close second in NWAAS national rookie standings behind only Brian Parker of Oklahoma.
Other drivers receiving honors at the NASCAR Hall of Fame will include NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam of Semora, NC, and national runner-up Keith Rocco of Wallingford, CT, who competed at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in May. The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series sanctions weekly stock car racing at more than 50 asphalt and dirt tracks in North America under a common championship point structure; each driver’s best 18 results in designated Division I events are counted toward their state and national point totals.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway will honor Proctor, Quenneville, and the local champions and top rookies from all of its four weekly racing divisions at the Banquet of Champions, scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Rutland-Killington in Rutland, VT. More details regarding the festivities will made available soon.
