WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil’s Bowl Speedway has announced fan-friendly pricing and policies for the 2021 dirt track season. As Vermonters demonstrate an ability to effectively control and mitigate the pandemic, management at the West Haven track remains optimistic that state health and safety regulations will soon look closer to normal.
State-mandated restrictions last year severely limited group sizes, forcing Devil’s Bowl Speedway to make changes to remain financially stable. Those changes included eliminating free admission for children, eliminating discount pricing for seniors and teens, and raising ticket prices to $15 for all ages.
Although many restrictions are expected to remain in place for 2021, track promoter Mike Bruno has made changes to help families enjoy events more affordably. As a result, Devil’s Bowl will reintroduce a lower $12 adult price (all ages, 13 and up) for weekly events, and a more affordable $5 child ticket will be offered at all events.
The new infield drive-in parking area – which was created to facilitate social distancing – quickly became an exciting option for fans, and it will remain an important part of Devil’s Bowl moving forward. A new access road, a new entry and exit point, and a new infield food and beverage concession stand will be constructed in the spring, which will greatly improve the infield experience. Infield admission will remain $20 for adults and free for kids.
Online advance ticket sales remain a convenient option for the grandstands in addition to at-track sales on race day. Infield tickets will only be sold at the speedway on race day in 2021 due to the uncertainty of rain and resulting soft grounds that would close the infield.
Pit area admission remains consistent at most weekly events at $25 for 2021 Devil’s Bowl Speedway license holders and $35 for non-members. Discussions are underway about the possibility of online advance sale pit passes.
Special events will have different pricing in the grandstands, infield, and pit area, and all prices and policies are subject to change dependent upon state mandates.
Season passes are now available for the grandstands and the pit area. Grandstand general admission season passes are $300 for adults and $50 for kids. Reserved general admission seating is also available for an additional $50. Season pit passes area available for $600 for members and $800 for non-members.
