Speedbowl to host open practice session on Saturday

Published March 26. 2013 4:00AM

The Waterford Speedbowl will host a preseason open practice session on Saturday so drivers can prepare for the season-opening Budweiser Blastoff Weekend on April 5-7.

Pit gates open at 10 a.m., with rotating practice rounds beginning at 11 and continuing through 6 p.m. Pit area admission is $25 per person (the grandstands will be closed), and pit concessions will offer breakfast sandwiches and omelets as a limited special in addition to the regular menu.

The Budweiser Blastoff marks the 63rd consecutive season of racing at the Speedbowl, highlighted by a 100-lap feature for the Valenti Modified Racing Series and a special 63-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modifieds. Thirteen divisions, including the NEMA Midgets, NEMA Lites, New England Truck Series and full NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program, begins with practice on Friday, April 5. Qualifying and seven features will be held on Saturday, April 5, and six feature events will be held on Sunday, April 7.

Advance tickets are available online at Speedbowl.com along with a full detailed event schedule for the weekend. Fans with questions can also email info@speedbowl.com or call the track office (860) 442-1585.
