“Devil’s Bowl Downtown” Car Show

“Devil’s Bowl Downtown” Car Show

Downtown Rutland will once again host the cars and stars of Devil’s Bowl Speedway and the annual “Devil’s Bowl Downtown” car show on Sunday, May 21.

Stock car racing machines and local drivers will be on hand for the fun, free, and family-friendly event in the heart of Vermont’s third-largest city, which coincides with the City’s annual “Blessing of the Bikes” charity event.

The Devil’s Bowl Downtown event is a favorite among fans of all ages.

Speedway officials, the Downtown Rutland Partnership, and the Red Knights International Firefighters Motorcycle Club bring together motorcycle riders and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series competitors from Devil’s Bowl Speedway’s 1/2-mile Asphalt Track and 3/10-mile Dirt Track for an exciting day of interaction with racing fans, gearheads, and newcomers.

The day begins at Rutland’s newest restaurant, Ground Round Grill & Bar, coming soon to the site of the former Ponderosa Steakhouse on U.S. Route 7.  Racecars are on display from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and then the show moves to Center Street and Merchants Row in Downtown Rutland at 11:00 a.m.

Fans can see the cars up close, meet the drivers, and greet the Red Knights as they arrive around 12:30 p.m. for the annual Blessing of the Bikes.  The Downtown portion of the show also offers dining, shopping, and entertainment options for everyone.

The show wraps up in dramatic fashion at 2:00 p.m., as the engines fire up and the city streets rumble with a parade of racecars.

Best Appearing Car awards will be decided at the event, and all drivers who attend with their racecars will receive 10 bonus points toward the 2017 Devil’s Bowl Speedway track championships.
