Outlaw Stock division part of Speedbowl’s Finale Weekend in 2011

Waterford Speedbowl is welcoming back an open competition style stock car race as part of Finale Weekend once again in 2011.   A tradition over the past few seasons, the popular 25-lap Outlaw Stock race is back again in 2011 and will run on Saturday, October 8 as part of Finale Weekend at the track, held October 7-9. 


The Outlaw Stock division welcomes most any rear-wheel drive American made car or truck with at least a 105” wheelbase from across New England’s short tracks.  Engine rules are a steel block, steel heads, and any single carburetor. 


In year’s past, competitors from tracks far and wide including Seekonk Speedway, Stafford Motor Speedway, Thompson Speedway and travelling series such as the New England Truck Series have all been part of the action.  Bragging rights for supremacy will once again be part of the drama that unfolds for the Outlaw Stock race.


Rules for the division can be viewed below.  Any questions about car or driver eligibility should be directed to Speedbowl Race Director Scott Tapley at [email protected].
