I have decided to go with a more simple layout. Two pages in particular, this one and the Thunder Road page, were laid out with
a complicated, multi - table format; and they are both currently giving me a hard time. I am hoping this will solve that.

[Left] A very young C.J. Richards awards a trophy to racing legend Steve Danish at the old Fairmont Speedway -around 1965.  [Middle] Promoter Charles "C.J." Richards worries out an impending rainstorm at Devil's Bowl with his then-partner Tony Parisi [Right] Richards talks with Bear Ridge's C.V. Elms, another noted Vermont promoter.


     Just as the Fairmont Speedway and the Champlain Valley Racing Association were starting to hit their stride in 1966, the town of Fair Haven began to make a fuss about the traffic, the noise, and the dust that they claimed were making life miserable for certain townspeople on Saturday nights during the race season. The same town that enjoyed the financial benefits of the track was about to drive the track away.

    C.J. Richards began looking around for another place to have his races, and he finally settled on some land on Route 22A, a few miles north of Fair Haven, in West Haven, Vermont. The valley there had some of the finest clay anywhere in the region. When wet, it could pull the shoe right off your foot. Still, controversy would plague the CVRA as particular relatives of Richards in West Haven were upset to have the track nearby their farms.

    Richards would struggle with first-year problems out at the Bowl. Besides his disgruntled relatives spreading manure on Saturday nights right next to his track and leaving dead cows beside the track boundary fences, he also had some problems with the track surface. The track had been constructed partly in very cold weather, and frost remained in the clay for a good part of the first season - causing seepage even during race programs. The high-powered cars he now had running would tear the surface up and leave it a rutted mess by feature time.

Old Reliable, Charlie La Duc - the heart and soul of Devil's Bowl, in his final car.

    But, C.J. persevered, and his track became established for years to come. The track went through one down cycle in the 1970, when the Richards family actually closed it for a while. Richard's announcer, Tom Perry, re-opened it as West Haven Speedway and promoted races for a couple of seasons. Now, the track is approaching it fortieth anniversary. Despite the fact that it has one of the latest opening dates due to the late spring moisture in that area, it continues to succeed and its unusual Sunday night date allows it to attract a good and varied field of cars.
