Based on Michigan Governor Executive Order 2020-110, the state has been moved to Stage 4 of the Michigan Safe Start Plan. As a result, Michigan residents are no longer required to stay home. Certain businesses and activities will be allowed, but still subject to safety guidance to mitigate the risk of infection. Outdoor social gatherings and events are now permitted so long as people maintain six feet of social distancing with a maximum of 100 people. Based on this information, here is Flat Rock Speedway’s plan as of today, June 2:

We have communicated with Ash Township, the Monroe County Health Department and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department to confirm what is allowed and permitted. Distancing is required and face coverings are recommended, as is hand sanitizer for each race team.

It is not financially feasible for us to conduct racing events until we are permitted to have at least a reasonable percentage of our overall seating capacity in attendance.

Until such time as we know that date, we will continue with private track rentals, expanding to our established plan of past seasons, including a maximum of 4 cars per 4-hour session. 

We will provide a minimum 2-week notice prior to the first race date, and we will schedule a minimum of two pre-season practice days prior to the first race.

This update applies only to Flat Rock Speedway.  We have no updates so far this week from the State of Ohio, where we will run an ARCA Menards Series East race on June 13 with essential personnel only allowed on the grounds, no spectators.

Please check back with us at our websites for further updates, which we are committed to providing regularly.
