ANDOVER — Cody O’Brien won’t be driving to the annual Devil’s Bowl Speedway awards banquet at the Holiday Inn Rutland-Killington on Jan. 26. When he gets there, he won’t be ordering drinks at the bar either.
O’Brien, you see, is 14 years old — becoming the youngest track champion in the 52-year history of Devil’s Bowl Speedway when he won the 500cc Mini-Sprint division in 2018 at age 13.
Despite his age, O’Brien has appreciable seat time in one type of vehicle or another.
