Bringing Racing to Southeastern CT since 1951
The New London - Waterford Speedbowl opened on April 15, 1951 as a 1/3 mile crushed blue stone oval race track. It has been the home of decades of action packed, short track racing. The New London-Waterford Speedbowl now, is a 3/8 mile asphalt oval race track, located on CT 85 in Waterford, Connecticut, just off Interstate 395. Since we first opened for business on April 15, 1951, the track has been in continuous operation every season since. We have continuously promoted Modified stock car racing as our featured division since the first year of operation. Currently, we operate under NASCAR’s Whelen All-American Series banner on Saturday nights from April through October. We also hold family-oriented events such as the Thursday Thunder, Friday Drags and several Sunday Spectacular events throughout the year.
