St. Louis, Douville Take Leadership Roles with Sprint Cars of New England

Experienced motorsports veterans join SCoNE for 20th season

FREEDOM, N.H. (April 17, 2023) – The Sprint Cars of New England (SCoNE) club has announced the addition of two key officials for the 2023 season. Racing veterans Justin St. Louis and Dan Douville have come on board to lead the organization for its upcoming 20th year.

Justin St. Louis has been named the SCoNE President, effective immediately. St. Louis, of Bridport, Vt., will manage day-to-day operations for the club and work closely with the SCoNE Board of Directors and SCoNE member track promoters to ensure high-quality, professionally run events, and to grow the club’s standing in the region. St. Louis will also handle media and marketing duties and will serve as the play-by-play announcer for SCoNE on race days.

St. Louis has 23 years of professional experience in short track racing, serving in many roles as both a corporate staff member and a race day official; his most recent full-time role was a decade-long stint at Devil’s Bowl Speedway through the 2021 season. St. Louis also competed in entry-level divisions on dirt and asphalt for several years, and he currently co-hosts the Uncommon Deeds Motorsports Podcast.

Dan Douville has been hired as the SCoNE Race Director and will control on-track operations on race days. The Bridgewater, N.H., resident brings 35 years of racing experience to the table and will be able to provide leadership and insight to both competitors and officials. Douville earned more than 100 wins during his driving career at tracks across the Northeast, and he has competed in many prestigious events including the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals. Douville ranks second on SCoNE’s all-time win list with 28 feature victories and was the tour’s champion in 2011 and 2015.

St. Louis said that while the new partnership has come together quickly, he has already gone to work. His first call was to Douville to bring him on board.

“I’m ready to go,” St. Louis said. “It was a surprise when the board reached out to me, but I have always enjoyed SCoNE and I was interested right away. We have gone to work quickly to prepare for this year, and I’m excited to have Dan Douville by my side for this adventure. I’ve spoken with the promoters of all four of our member tracks, and I’m really looking forward to the summer. The SCoNE schedule is the best that I feel it has been in many years, and we should have a lot of fun this year.”

The Sprint Cars of New England features winged, open-cockpit, open-wheel racecars with 360-cubic-inch, methanol fueled engines producing more than 600 horsepower. The 15-race SCoNE schedule has stops at Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford, Vt., Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, Vt., Legion Speedway in Rumney, N.H., and The Flat Track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.

SCoNE’s 20th season opens on Saturday, May 13, at Devil’s Bowl Speedway with a $1,000-to-win event. For more information, visit or find the “SCoNE – Sprint Cars of New England” page on Facebook.
