COVID-19 VIRUS BRINGS MORE CHANGES TO FLAT ROCK, TOLEDO SPEEDWAY SCHEDULES

April 27, 2020:  Due to challenges related to the coronavirus, including Executive Orders from both Michigan and Ohio Governor’s offices “Temporary Requirement to Suspend Activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life”, and most importantly taking into account the health and safety of our fans, sponsors, race teams and officials, both Flat Rock and Toledo Speedway’s 2020 racing schedules will be adjusted on an ongoing basis.

**The next schedule update is scheduled for on or about May 15.

The Sunday, May 10 EP Automotive Drifting event is canceled.

TOLEDO SPEEDWAY EVENTS

“We will monitor and comply with the guidances of Federal, State and local government and healthcare authorities,” said Ron Drager, Owner and Promoter of the tracks. “As timelines become better defined and approved activities designated, we will announce schedule updates. We stand aligned together with healthcare workers, first responders and public health officials as we continue to work through these difficult times, especially in our area.  We encourage everyone to keep informed of developments through official CDC (www.cdc.gov) and WHO (www.who.int) updates and to use recommended best practice precautions such as social distancing, frequent handwashing, use of hand sanitizer and covering coughs and sneezes appropriately.”

“While it is our intention to return to racing when it is approved, safe and viable for us as a business, it is clear that in both Michigan and Ohio this will be a progressive process and that sporting events with attendance by the general public will be among the last activities to resume.  Due to the uncertainty of specific dates for future racing events, the advance sale of tickets for all events has been suspended until further notice.”

We are committed to providing updates, which will be posted on the tracks’ websites and Facebook page as they become available.
