The New London Waterford Speedbowl is making an official announcement on the proposed Lease of the Speedbowl for the 2017 season. The management team is happy to announce that an agreement has been reached with George Whitney of Whitney Farm Racing, LLC to lease the track for the 2017 season.

An updated race schedule is being reviewed and will be posted as soon as dates are confirmed but it George’s goal to get the racers back out on the track where they belong as soon as possible.
