Speedbowl partners with Jammin 107.7 FM radio for giveaway Saturday
‘Great Pumpkin Drop’ planned after racing concludes season
Waterford, CT (October 24, 2012) – Waterford Speedbowl concludes its 2012 season on Saturday with the final NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing around the region. Following racing, the season will come to a close with fun for the whole family with activities fitting for the season, including a memorable “smash” on the track. Jammin 107.7 FM radio presents the day’s activities.
NASCAR racing takes center stage to settle championship battles in the Street Stock and SK Modified® divisions during 50-lap features. The Bob Valenti Auto Mall Late Models also compete in a 50-lapper, while the Mini Stocks complete the remaining 28-laps of their season-ending 50 lap race. Dillon Moltz of Waterford and Ken Cassidy Jr. of Lisbon have already wrapped up the titles in those two divisions, respectively. Cassidy put the finishing touches on a national championship in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series back in September. Pit gates open at noon on Saturday with practice starting at 1:00pm. The first of the four races hits the track at 3:00pm.
Immediately following the racing at approximately 6:00pm, staging begins for Jammin 107.7’s “Great Pumpkin Drop”. A huge pumpkin will be dropped by crane high above the Speedbowl’s three-eighths mile oval. 107 special guests will be on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the drop, pre-qualified for the chance to win a trip for two courtesy of the radio station. The pumpkin will be filled with numbered ping-pong balls. When the pumpkin drops, the ball which lands closest to a pre-determined target wins its “owner” the trip giveaway. The 107 guests will also receive complimentary admission to the races Saturday. Fans have won a ball in the pumpkin drop by listening to Jammin 107.7 FM over the past two weeks.
Rounding out Saturday’s Halloween themed activities include a “trunk or treat” following the racing and a kids costume contest. Youth age 14 and under will receive free grandstands admission for Saturday’s event by dressing in their Halloween costume. Prizes will be awarded during the costume contest. The “trunk or treat” provides a safe alternative to traditional trick-or-treating, allowing kids to go from car trunk to car trunk to score Halloween goodies. Racecars as well as race fans are encouraged to participate in Saturday’s trunk-or-treat. Prizes will also be awarded for the “best trunk in show” for the trunk that’s decked out with the best seasonal or Halloween theme.
