New London-Waterford Speedbowl Ready For Return To Racing For 2019 Seasonwaterford
October 20, 2018
New London-Waterford Speedbowl operator and general manager Mike Serluca has a busy weekend on tap at the track with the running of the facility’s annual finale weekend.
But on Saturday morning Serluca announced to drivers at the track that he’ll have plenty more to keep him busy at the track even after the final checkered flag flies for the 2018 season on Sunday.
Serluca told drivers on hand Saturday morning that he will continue to operate and manage the facility for the 2019 season.
“We are all systems go for 2019,” Serluca told RaceDayCT. “We’re putting the schedule together. It should be finalized by the middle of November or first of December. But we were 100 percent racing here next year in 2019.”
Serluca took over operations of the facility in early September after the previous operator and general manager George Whitney stepped away.
Whitney took over operations of the facility from track owner Bruce Bemer in June 2017. Whitney ran his last event at the track on Sept. 8 before walking away from the facility without any public announcement prior to a scheduled Sept. 15 event. Serluca took over operations prior to the track returning to action on Sept. 15.
Serluca said the current management team at the track will likely stay the same for 2019.
The track will close its 2018 racing season with two days of features this weekend, highlighted by an 80-lap SK Modified feature on Sunday.
Mike Serluca announced Saturday that he will announced a 2019 racing schedule for the New London-Waterford Speedbowl by Dec. 1
