New London-Waterford Speedbowl
The New London-Waterford Speedbowl opened on April 15, 1951 as a 1/3 mile crushed blue stone oval race track. After 3 weeks of operation, the dust created during green flag segments of racing became a nuisance to spectators. The track closed for about a month and re-opened as an asphalt oval, which it remains today. Currently the New London–Waterford Speedbowl operates 3-nights a week from May thru October with affordable Wild ‘n Wacky Wednesday action, Fast Lane Fridays Drag Racing & Car Cruise and Saturday Night Short Track excitement.
