Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are first responders and our primary concern will always be the health, safety and well-being of our community.

While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.
As we navigate this journey, we are grateful for the commitment, compassion and friendship of our volunteers, supporters and sponsors. We look forward to seeing you at the speedway next year. Thank you very much!
