Donnelly Takes the Win at Devil’s Bowl
and the "SCoNE Championship"!
BOND Auto Parts SCoNE Round 12 Winner at Devil’s Bowl – Chris Donnelly. Chris also clinched the 2014 SCoNE championship.
A pair of 8 lap qualifying heats set the field for the 30 lap feature. Clay Dow showed the way in the first qualifier followed by Danny Varin.
The race went under yellow at the half way point when first year driver Luke Greenwood went over the turn 4 barrier and flipped onto the asphalt track. Chris Donnelly won the second qualifying race with Jake Williams second.
Keeping the Motor Warm – The cold weather was a concern for the alcohol burning engines.
Lacy Hansen took the early lead while the SCoNE veterans quickly came to the front.
Chris Donnelly was looking for a way around Lacey when Will Hull came out of the pack, passing both, and jumping out to a lead.
While leading, and seemingly the class of the field, Will broke a rear end on lap 9, ending his day. With Will parked, it was all Chris Donnelly. While Chris motored away, Clay Dow and Dan Douville battled for second place. Clay finished second with Dan in third.

The next SCoNE event is the
2014 awards banquet on Nov 22
at the Red Blazer in Concord, NH.
Chris Donnelly took the win Sunday
in the BOND Auto Parts 360 sprint car
series race at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
Chris also won the Sprint Cars of New England 2014 championship.
The final race of the season was conducted on the new dirt track constructed inside the asphalt oval at Devil’s Bowl. The blustery fall weather made keeping the alcohol burning engines as well as the racers and fans at proper temperature a challenge.
Wild Ride - Luke Greenwood jumped the turn 4 wall in his qualifying heat. In spite of his off-track excursion, Luke clinched the SCoNE 2014 Rookie of the Year title.
During intermission the track was graded
and rolled in providing a very fast track
for the sprint cars.
Long straights and tight turns
defined the oval.
Battle for Second - Clay Dow and Dan Douville race for second place behind Chris Donnelly. Clay took second place.
Chris’s win made him a $1000 payday and also the 2014 SCoNE champion.
Second in points was Dan Douville followed by Clay Dow.
While Luke Greenwood didn’t start the feature due to a hard roll in his qualifier, he did clinch the SCoNE Rookie of the Year title.
3/25/14 SCoNE regular Lacey Hanson showed off her brand new,
Phoenix car at the Rutland, Vt race show last week.
She has set the standard for gorgeous cars with this replacement
to the car she demolished at Bear Ridge last September.
