PRIVATE TESTING APPROVED TO BEGIN AT FLAT ROCK AND TOLEDO

Flat Rock Speedway has been granted permission by the Monroe County Health Department (and is in communication with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and Ash Township officials) for private testing at the track effective Tuesday, May 19.

Toledo Speedway has been granted permission by the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department (and is in communication with Toledo Police Department, Toledo City Council and the Lucas County Board of Commissioners) for private testing at the track effective Tuesday, May 19.

4-hour blocks ONLY will be available. Times are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. A 1-page outline of the testing procedures is located on the track’s webpage under Driver Info. All items listed will be STRICTLY adhered to, including until further notice local and state COVID-19 Healthcare Guidelines. Please call Scott at (734) 782-2480 or (419) 727-1100 to arrange a time.

“The approval for limited private testing provides us an initial phase of activity. The goal, with governmental and healthcare guidance and permission, is to then phase into open practice days, and eventually proposed racing events with a percentage of overall seating capacity allowed in the grandstands,” said Ron Drager, Owner and Promoter of the tracks.  “Both Michigan and Ohio Governors have issued guidances stating public gatherings of large sizes will be among the last activities permitted to resume. Our strategy is to be as ready as possible for that time, but in all cased to proceed gradually, safely and only with approval. Due to the uncertainty of specific dates for future racing events, the advance sale of tickets for general public attendance at all events has been suspended until further notice.”

We are committed to providing timely updates, which will be posted on the tracks’ websites and Facebook page as they become available. **The next schedule update is scheduled for on or about May 30.
