By John Rittenoure - TULSA, Okla. (May 17, 2020) - Due to a roll back on COVID-19 procedures in Kansas this past week, the May 23-24 AmeriFlex / OCRS events scheduled for Caney Valley Speedway have been moved to Monett Motor Speedway and Nevada Speedway.
Previously OCRS and Caney Valley Speedway owner/promoter Kerry Gorby had received the go ahead to race on Memorial Day weekend with the expected release of phase 2 by Kansas governor Laura Kelly. However, Kelly announced this past week that phase 2 would be rolled back to phase 1.5 leaving Caney Valley Speedway in the dark until June.
After receiving the news Gorby made some calls and has arranged for the AmeriFlex / OCRS racing to open as scheduled, but in the state of Missouri.
The season will open Saturday, May 23, at Monett Motor Speedway. On Sunday, May 24, it is on to Nevada Speedway. The two tracks are only 85 miles apart.
Support classes for the OCRS and Monett season opener are Late Models, Modifieds, B-Mods, Legends and Pure Stocks. USRA B-Mods and the NOW600 National Series Micros will be racing with OCRS on Sunday at Nevada.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but at least we are getting to race as originally scheduled.
