Bryan Hulbert – TULSA, Okla. (March 18, 2020) With ever-evolving information, CDC Recommendations, and area mandates continually changing, the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products has been in contact with tracks slated for shows during the month of April and from those conversations, has restructured the start of the 2020 season.
“Right now, everything is so chaotic that we’ve had to change the start of our 2020 season to the month of May,” stated ASCS Sooner Region Director, Terry Mattox.
“Some of the change is because of local and state recommendations depending on where the track is, and the other part is if the track is NASCAR Sanctioned.”
As of now, the series will open Friday, May 1 at Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan. with Caney Valley Speedway the following night in Caney, Kan.
The only casualty of the restructure so far is Lucas Oil Speedway’s 9th Annual Impact Signs, Awnings & Wraps Open Wheel Showdown was originally slated for Saturday, May 2 and will not be rescheduled.
Salina Highbanks Speedway is still looking for a suitable date since, under NASCAR Sanction, they cannot run until May 9. Their race was slated for Saturday, April 18. The April date at Creek County Speedway has been moved to Friday, August 21.
“I’m hoping this is the only time we have to move races due to the situation surrounding COVID-19 and am very thankful to the promoters for working with. This whole thing is alarming and we pray for everyone to stay in good health, and be race-ready.”
